Ride the rush of “Queen Sugar” as a second season begins. Or opt for the quiet charm and scene-stealing dog performances of “Paterson” and “Wendy and Lucy.”

What’s on TV

QUEEN SUGAR 10 p.m. on OWN. Oprah Winfrey and Ava DuVernay’s seductive drama about three disconnected siblings returns for a second season. Charley (Dawn-Lyen Gardner), the wife and manager of a professional basketball player; Nova (Rutina Wesley), a journalist with a spiritual bent; and Ralph Angel (Kofi Siriboe), a brooder with a son and a prison record, are now running their Louisiana sugar cane farm after their father’s death. Part family tableau, part Dust Bowl saga, part lush romance, the show, which “wasted no time announcing its boldness,” Salamishah Tillet wrote in The New York Times, “is also representative of something more: a recognition that both critical hosannas and business success can be had with intelligent scripted programming for, and about, black lives in America.”

CBS THIS MORNING 7 a.m. on CBS. Norah O’Donnell interviews President Moon Jae-in of South Korea at the Blue House in Seoul, where he is expected to discuss his plan for engaging North Korea as nuclear tensions mount and his decision to suspend the deployment of an American antimissile defense system ahead of his meeting with President Trump.

STATES OF UNDRESS 10 p.m. on Viceland. Hailey Gates investigates how the rise in Islamophobia in France is affecting what Muslim women wear.
