TV picks for Oct. 3: "Sean Saves the World,” Vincent Price, Jennifer Lopez

The right Price
TCM’s Star of the Month is Vincent Price, which gives us a chance to see the late actor as more than a ghoulish figure in horror movies. The Thursday-night marathons kick off with 1939’s “The Private Lives of Elizabeth and Essex” (7 p.m., TCM), in which Price plays none other than Sir Walter Raleigh.
Sean Hayes, who brought a creative burst of energy to “Will & Grace,” fails to live up to the title of his new series, “Sean Saves the World” (8 p.m., KARE, Ch. 11). Hayes just doesn’t resonate as a leading man in this over-the-top effort about a single father trying to raise his teenage daughter. The only big laughs come from Thomas Lennon playing a cuckoo boss — exactly the kind of role Hayes might have shined in.
Dance the night away
Jennifer Lopez’s backup singers get the spotlight in “A Step Away” (9 p.m., NUVOtv), a new docu-series that follows the 10-member troupe on Lopez’s first world tour.
