  • Updated: February 17, 2014 - 2:30 PM

Cary Grant and Eva Marie Saint in “North by Northwest.”

I hear a train a comin’

“The Rise and Fall of Penn Station,” the latest offering from “American Experience,” looks at how one of New York’s architectural treasures was destroyed as Americans largely abandoned train travel for cars and airplanes. The city still has a Penn Station, but that underground terminal will never be featured in a documentary. 8 p.m., TPT, Ch. 2

Clueless in Seattle

Woody Harrelson is getting well-deserved accolades for his intense character on HBO’s highly addictive “True Detective,” so it’s a good time to revisit Woody Boyd, his character from “Cheers.” Enjoy the lovable, naive bartender as he makes a guest appearance on a 1999 episode of “Frasier” 9:30 p.m., Hallmark

Long-distance runner

All revved up from an evening of Olympics coverage? Keep the energy level high by taking in 1959’s “North by Northwest,” Alfred Hitchcock’s most action-packed film, with Cary Grant making more twists and turns than a snowboarder. 11 p.m., TCM
