This week's TV Movies

Hemingway & Gellhorn

Captain America times two: Genuine WWII hero Audie Murphy plays himself in the 1955 bio-pic “To Hell and Back” and Gary Cooper is WWI’s highly decorated “Sergeant York” in that fact-based 1941 drama. (AMC, 10:04 a.m.; TCM, 5 p.m.)

Gary Sinise and Joe Mantegna return as hosts of the “National Memorial Day Concert” in Washington, D.C.. Trace Adkins, Natalie Cole, Daughtry and “American Idol’s” Jessica Sanchez are among the scheduled performers. (KOCE, 8 and 9:30 p.m.)


All is fair in love and war: Clive Owen and Nicole Kidman, above, star as literary lion Ernest Hemmingway and his third wife, trailblazing foreign correspondent Martha Gellhorn, in the made-for-cable docudrama “Hemingway & Gellhorn.” (HBO, 9 p.m.)


A guilty pleasure gone to soon, “The L.A. Complex”ends its first season, unlikely to return. Too bad, because we kinda like this sweet yet cynical dramedy — imported from Canada! — about young folks trying to make it in the City of Angels. (KTLA, 9 p.m.)


Manhattanites and their canine companions get counseling from dog trainer, animal behaviorist, pet care company owner and stand-up comic Justin Silver in the new reality series “Dogs in the City.” Woof, woof, woof, yadda, yadda, yadda. (CBS, 8 p.m.)


That little red squiggle that shows up when you misspell a word in a document or e-mail? These kids don’t need it. The country’s best young spellers will strive to be letter perfect in the finals of the “2012 Scripps National Spelling Bee.” (ESPN, 5 p.m.)


What color was George Washington’s white horse? When was the War of 1812? Who is buried in Grant’s Tomb? Hopefully, no such questions will be asked of students taking part in the inaugural edition of “The National History Bee.” (History, 9 p.m.)


Hail to the chimp! “King Kong’s” Andy Serkis gives yet another thoroughly captivating motion-capture performance as the super-smart simian leader of the “Rise of the Planet of the Apes” in this 2011 reboot of the classic sci-fi franchise. (Cinemax, 10 p.m.)
