CMA Fest 2017
ABC, 8 ET/PT

Country stars Kelsea Ballerini and Thomas Rhett team up to host this year’s special, which was filmed during the CMA Music Festival in Nashville. The three-hour broadcast will cover highlights from the Festival, featuring artists including Blake Shelton, Florida Georgia Line and Lady Antebellum. 

Broadchurch
BBC America, 10 ET/PT

The murder-mystery drama reaches its series finale tonight, after a three-season run. The series started off as the story of a single crime in the seaside British town, but expanded to cover the resulting trial and then a new crime in its second and third seasons. It never quite matched the brilliance of Season 1, but it’s a sendoff to the great work done by actors David Tennant and Olivia Colman, and a chance to see new Doctor Who Jodie Whittaker before she moves to an even higher-profile BBC series.
