Bold and the beautiful

The young women toiling behind the masthead of a Cosmopolitan-like magazine have more than a Prada-wearing devil to worry about as "The Bold Type" puts its second season into circulation. Since this is Freeform, love will definitely be in the air, but the show's willingness to address contemporary social issues is a key reason it has become a hit.

7 p.m., Freeform

Blood work

Viola Davis takes a break from showing how to get away with murder to shining a light on someone who may have been wrongly imprisoned. "The Last Defense," which she coproduced with her husband, Julius Tennon, centers on Darlie Routier, who was convicted of killing her son. Twin Cities-based blood spatter experts Terry Laber and Bart Epstein offer evidence suggesting she's innocent. The drama isn't as nail-biting as other offerings in the booming true-crime genre, but it's still more engrossing than a "Law & Order" repeat.

9 p.m., KSTP, Ch. 5

Showing their pride

Most of the documentaries in the series "Take Five: Beyond the Parades" were retired from the festival circuit years ago, but still feel relevant, particularly 2014's "Faith and Gay Fear," Steven Grandison's look at how individuals and organizations with an anti-gay agenda have made their presence felt around the world.
