Wild about Harry

The "Twilight" and "Hunger Games" franchises get a reminder of who remains king of the castle with a four-day tribute to Harry Potter, starting with "Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets" (6 p.m., ABC Family). The network will showcase other films in the series every afternoon and evening through Thursday.

Stone cold

The director of "JFK" and "Platoon" gets back to being an American history professor in "Oliver Stone's Untold History of the United States" (7 p.m., Showtime), a 10-part series that attempts to debunk the traditional take on historic events. I would have watched it, but I'm working on a conspiracy theory that the preview DVD was stolen by squirrels.

Full speed ahead

Richard Hammond hosts "Top Gear: 50 Years of Bond Cars" (7:30 p.m., BBC America), which includes an exclusive set report from the latest James Bond thriller, "Skyfall." In a perfect world, that would be followed by "50 Years of Martinis" hosted by Amanda Bynes.
