All the way to Memphis

Let’s see if President Obama shows off his dance moves when “In Performance at the White House” (7 p.m., TPT, Ch. 2) pays tribute to Memphis soul music with help from Mavis Staples, Queen Latifah, Alabama Shakes and Justin Timberlake.

Like father, like daughter

Acclaimed filmmaker Ken Burns teams up with daughter Sarah Burns, as well as David McMahon, to investigate “The Central Park Five” (8 p.m., TPT, Ch. 2), the 1989 case in which five New York teenagers were wrongfully accused of rape.


Ashton Kutcher isn’t done punking people. The actor is co-creator of “Who Gets the Last Laugh?” (9 p.m., TBS), a new hidden-camera comedy in which well known comedians such as D.L. Hughley, Cheri Oteri and Andy Dick see who can pull off the best practical joke.
