Suraj Sharma stars as the title character in “Life of Pi.”

Slice of Pi

Ang Lee’s cinematic adaptation of the novel “Life of Pi” (6:45 p.m., HBOe) was both a critical and commercial hit in 2012. Will the special effects in this 3D film — about a shipwrecked teenager on a lifeboat with a tiger — translate to the small screen?

Sexy and successful

Is it a double standard to ask female athletes to be both successful in their sport and sexy off the field? Directors Heidi Ewing and Rachel Grady explore the question on “Nine for IX” (7 p.m., ESPN).

Name that rapper

Post-VMAs and pre-Minnesota State Fair, Macklemore & Ryan Lewis visit “The Tonight Show With Jay Leno” (10:35 p.m., KARE, Ch. 11). Mackle­more asks the other guests, Josh Duhamel and J.B. Smoove, whose surname he can adopt.
