CrazySexyCool: The TLC Story 9 p.m., VH1

Anyone who saw the “Behind the Music” focused on this female hip-hop/soul trio from Atlanta knows that there is plenty of story to tell about TLC. Tionne “T-Boz” Watkins, Rozonda “Chilli” Thomas, and the late Lisa “Left Eye” Lopes (played by Lil Mama, above) gifted the world with a clutch of great songs — “No Scrubs,” “Waterfalls,” “Unpretty,” “Creep,” “What About Your Friends” and more — and experienced a lot of life along the way including great commercial success, tumultuous relationships, bankruptcy, one serious house fire, and illness. This biopic aims to tell some of that tale.


Bones 8 p.m., Fox

After years of fighting crime, speaking different love languages, and having a child, those two crazy kids, Dr. Temperance “Bones” Brennan (Emily Deschanel) and FBI agent Seeley Booth (David Boreanaz), are finally tying the knot. Be on the lookout for the return of several familiar faces, including Cyndi Lauper as psychic Avalon Harmonia, who will serenade the newlyweds; Ralph Waite, Pa Walton himself, as Booth’s grandfather; and Ryan O’Neal as father of the bride.
