A CRY IN THE DARK (1988) 8 p.m. on TCM. This drama chronicles the story of a New Zealand couple who were tried and later exonerated for the murder of their 5-week-old daughter during a fateful camping trip. Streep portrays Lindy Chamberlain “with the kind of virtuosity that seems to redefine the possibilities of screen acting,” Vincent Canby wrote in his New York Times review.

FILTHY RICH 9 p.m. on Fox. Kim Cattrall of “Sex in the City” stars in this new series as Margaret Monreaux, the matriarch of a powerful Southern family behind a successful Christian television network. When Margaret’s husband dies in a plane crash, she’s stunned to learn that he fathered three children outside of their marriage, all of whom are written into his will.

TIME100 10 p.m. on ABC. Every year, Time magazine selects its list of the world’s 100 most influential people to grace its pages and attend its annual gala. This year, the magazine has partnered with ABC to unveil those on the 2020 list ahead of its print debut on Friday, Sept. 25. The special will feature interviews with some honorees and musical performances, as well as a look at the year’s biggest stories.
