Animal kingdom

When the subject of France comes up, the first thing you might think of is wine and cheese on the banks of the Seine River, gazing at the Eiffel Tower. But "Wild France," a new "Nature" documentary, shows you a different part of the country, one dotted with brown bears, wild boar, vultures and wolves. In other words, don't leave your picnic basket out after dark. 7 p.m. TPT, Ch. 2

We the people

"Mom" stars Allison Janney and Anna Faris host the "People's Choice Awards 2015," a scattershot event that's more about popularity than the craft. Among the expected highlights: an "Entourage" reunion, a performance by Iggy Azalea and an appearance from Ellen DeGeneres. 8 p.m. WCCO, Ch. 4

McCarthy hearings

What's a honeymoon without a crew of cameras in tow? The new series "Donnie Loves Jenny" opens with the wedding of Donnie Wahlberg and Jenny McCarthy, two celebrities who have thrived in the reality spotlight. Early drama revolves around adjusting to the presence of Jenny's dad and teaching her son, Evan, all about the birds and the bees. Hey, give the kid a few copies of "Singled Out." That should do the trick. 9:30 p.m. A&E
