Oprah’s Next Chapter: Gay Hollywood

Oprah’s Next Chapter: Gay Hollywood Sunday, 9 p.m., OWN

Winfrey sits down with actors Jesse Tyler Ferguson (“Modern Family”), recent Emmy winner Dan Bucatinsky (“Scandal”), and actress/comedian Wanda Sykes to have a discussion about being gay in Hollywood. They discuss the impact it has had on their careers, their own stories of coming out, and about political and social issues related to parenting, marriage equality, and role models. This show is immediately followed by the documentary “Bridegroom” from Linda Bloodworth-Thomason (“Designing Women”), which chronicles the story of a young gay couple and how one of them navigates the sometimes thorny legal and familial issues after one of them passes away. Pictured (from left): Ferguson, Winfrey, Sykes, and Bucatinsky.


The Husband She Met Online 8 p.m., Lifetime

As if dates that show up having “forgotten” their wallets or looking markedly different from their profile pictures aren’t bad enough, Lifetime amps up the drama with this film about Rachel (Meredith Monroe, above), who meets Craig (Jason Gray-Stanford), who turns out to have quite a list of things he’d like to control, including Rachel.
