TV picks for April 8:  "The Survivor Diaries,” Dave Clark Five, "The Mindy Project”

  • April 7, 2014 - 2:54 PM

Catch him if you can

Elton John, Stevie Wonder and Bruce Springsteen are a little too glad all over in the two-hour documentary “The Dave Clark Five and Beyond.” Could it be because the writer and director is none other than Clark himself? The musician deserves his props and the ’60s footage is great, but the film could use less praise and more objectivity. 7 p.m. TPT, Ch. 2

You sexy thing

Did “The Mindy Project” need to get even raunchier? Mindy Kaling and her co-writers seem to think so. This latest batch of fresh episodes has ramped up the sex talk, which may make it more adult, but it’s not necessarily funnier. “Project” is teetering on the edge of being a solid sitcom, but it still requires a little polishing. 8 p.m. KMSP, Ch. 9

Dance fever

Professional dancer Adrianne Haslet-Davis, a Boston Marathon bombing survivor who lost part of one leg, allowed cameras to track her recovery for “CNN Special Report: The Survivor Diaries.” To show how far she’s come, Haslet-Davis treats host Anderson Cooper to a dance lesson. 9 p.m. CNN
