What’s on TV Monday: Veterans Day Documentaries and ‘Ill Behaviour’

HBO and PBS honor Veterans Day with two new documentaries. And the wildly imaginative comedy “Ill Behaviour” arrives on Showtime.
What’s on TV

WAR DOG: A SOLDIER’S BEST FRIEND (2017) 8 p.m. on HBO; also on HBO streaming platforms. Directed by Deborah Scranton (“The War Tapes”), this new documentary looks at the bond between Special Operations soldiers and the K9s that serve them in combat. Three soldiers recount how their loyal, four-legged partners stood by their side on the battlefield and provided emotional support during the darkest times.

PARADISE RUN 7 p.m. on Nickelodeon. Set in Hawaii, this game show pits pairs of young contestants against each other in grueling competitions.
MAN WITH A PLAN 8:30 p.m. on CBS. Matt LeBlanc dips his toes into hands-on parenting in this family sitcom. Mr. LeBlanc plays Adam Burns, a contractor who gives up his role as Daddy Fun Times to become a stay-at-home dad after his wife, Andi (Liza Snyder), returns to work. Adam — a beer-loving man’s man — struggles with his new role but finds his way. The sitcom has its amusing moments, but its premise is a tad outdated, James Poniewozik wrote in The New York Times. In this second-season premiere, Andi becomes jealous when her daughter Kate (Grace Kaufman) turns to the family’s new babysitter for advice. Even worse, the attractive hire has her eyes on Adam.

ALMOST SUNRISE (2017) 10 p.m. on PBS (check local listings). Two Iraq veterans, Tom Voss and Anthony Anderson, decide to come to terms with their wartime memories by walking from Milwaukee to Santa Barbara, Calif. Their symbolic trek was an attempt to overcome their “moral injury,” which this documentary defines as “a wound to the soul, caused by participation in events that violate one’s deeply held sense of right and wrong.” The 2,700-mile journey also helped raise funds for a veterans gathering place in Milwaukee.
ILL BEHAVIOUR 10:30 p.m. on Showtime. This new dark comedy series imagines just how far some would go for the ones they love. When Charlie (Tom Riley) announces he has cancer but is opting for natural healing remedies instead of chemotherapy, his best friend, Joel (Chris Geere), won’t have it. With the help of his college friend Tess (Jessica Regan), Joel kidnaps Charlie, locks him in a basement and has an oncologist (Lizzy Caplan) administer chemotherapy against his will.
