Time to look at the upcoming week’s TV highlights.
Tonight Dancing with the Stars returns to ABC at 8pm, when America’s Next Top Model’s first deaf winner, Nyle DiMarco, goes up against Jodie Sweetin, Mischa Barton, Geraldo Rivera, Marla Maples, Kim Fields and other performers.
HBO’s latest documentary takes a look at the life and career of screenwriter and director Nora Ephron: Everything Is Copy follows Ephron’s journey from working in the Newsweek mailroom to iconic movies like Silkwood, When Harry Met Sally and Sleepless in Seattle. The documentary airs at 9pm.
At 8pm on Freeform, The Fosters delivers a musical episode as the curtain goes up on a Romeo & Juliet rock opera. The event promises 12 original songs and a Corbin Bleu guest appearance.
The Carbonaro Effect returns to TruTV at 10pm with new reality-defying pranks from actor-magician Michael Carbonaro. The new season kicks off with Shaquille O’Neal helping with one prank.
Ellen Page and Ian Daniel return to the U.S. in the latest episode of Viceland’s Gaycation at 10pm. The duo take a road trip from New York City to Iowa, where presumably they run into Ted Cruz at the Iowa State Fair.

Wednesday also brings a special episode of Comedy Central’s @Midnight, as James Adomian revives his performance as Bernie Sanders, joined by Anthony Atamanuik as Donald Trump.
A new Shondaland drama comes to ABC’s Thursday lineup: The Catch follows an investigator (The Killing’s Mireille Enos) who learns her fiance (Six Feet Under’s Peter Krause) has been plotting to steal her money.
Let’s hope The Catch captures a similar level of addictive drama and crazy WTF cliffhangers as How to Get Away with Murder.
Thursday also sees the season finale of Baskets on FX at 10pm: Louie Anderson has been riveting as Christine Baskets, whose adult children (both played by Zach Galifianakis) never fail to disappoint her.
Sad Downton Abbey is over? PBS hopes a second season of Grantchester will fill the void. The 1950s mystery series follows Sidney Chambers (James Norton), a handsome country vicar who teams up with the local police inspector (Robson Green) to solve crime. They’re joined by Sidney’s curate, Leonard (Al Weaver), who is both naive and closeted.
Much like how Downton examined the evolution of British values in the early part of the 20th century, Grantchester explores the changes in England in the 1950s. And offers plenty of beefcake shots of Norton and Green.
