    Jeffrey Tambor

Tonight
The bulk of this month's John F. Kennedy-themed programs mostly recall and dissect the circumstances surrounding his assassination. The two-part portrait "American Experience: JFK" instead focuses on the life and legacy of the 35th president, beginning with his childhood years.
The film also re-evaluates JFK's strengths and weaknesses in the Oval Office. Part 1, 9 p.m. Monday, KCTS. Part 2, 9 p.m. Tuesday.
"Crisis Hotline: Veterans Press 1" is a sobering documentary that introduces viewers to trained responders who take calls from military vets struggling with PTSD, depression, addiction and suicidal thoughts. 9 p.m., HBO.
Tuesday
The danger keeps mounting on "Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D." Tonight, Coulson (Clark Gregg) works to save Ward and Fitz (Brett Dalton, Iain De Caestecker) during a risky Level 8 classified mission. 8 p.m., ABC.
Wednesday
On "Modern Family," Phil and Claire (Ty Burrell, Julie Bowen) are planning surprises for each other for their 20th anniversary. Yes, their hearts are in the right place, but you just know they'll screw it up. 9 p.m., ABC.
Thursday
The new sitcom, "Ground Floor," follows what happens when a hotshot banker (Skylar Astin), who thought he was having just a one-night stand with a partygoer (Briga Heelan), discovers that she works in the bank's maintenance department. Oops. 10 p.m., TBS.
Friday
It's "Miley's Sexy Night Out" on "Styled to Rock" as the designers are challenged to create a sultry club look for headline-grabbing singer Miley Cyrus. Let's hope no giant foam fingers are involved. 8 p.m., Bravo.
Jeffrey Tambor ("Arrested Development") drops in on the zany Season 4 premiere of "Raising Hope." He plays a mysterious figure who, for some reason, keeps popping up in the Chance family's lives. 9 p.m., Fox.
Saturday
Mike Tyson and Spike Lee bring their one-man stage show to TV with "Mike Tyson: Undisputed Truth." It's a raw and powerful production that has the former heavyweight champ opening up about his troubled youth, extraordinary career, prison time, controversies, family life and new beginnings. 8 p.m., HBO.
