Hero Dog Awards 8 p.m., Hallmark
The American Humane Association is holding the third annual awards show for good dogs. Joey Lawrence is the host; Betty White, Marlee Matlin, Esai Morales, and Jennifer Coolidge from “Best in Show” are presenters; and I am a viewer. Pictured: actress Bailee Madison and Bronx.
The Tomorrow People 9 p.m., The CW
Like “Arrow” right before it, this show gains a significant number of viewers once you factor in DVR viewing. About pretty young people with special powers at war with a nefarious group called Ultra, the show is neither special nor ultra special. Pictured (from left): Robbie Amell, Peyton List, and Luke Mitchell.
