Things are getting crazier during Barney and Robin’s wedding weekend on “How I Met Your Mother” (CBS at 8). Robin feuds with her future in-laws, while Ted and Marshall have an argument about wedding-gift etiquette.

Speaking of nuptials, Brennan and Booth start planning their wedding on “Bones” (Fox at 8), but the process comes to a halt when they have to help investigate the death of a high school principal.

Max and Caroline not only need more money, but also can’t figure out how to work their new cappuccino machine — so they kill two birds with one stone and land temp jobs at a coffeehouse on “2 Broke Girls” (CBS at 8:30).

On Monday, HBO airs three films that were nominated for an Academy Award this year in the Documentary Short Subject category. “Mondays at Racine” (at 9) spotlights a Long Island beauty salon that gives free services once a month to women with cancer; “Redemption” (at 9:40) profiles New Yorkers who make a living by redeeming bottles and cans at a recycling center; and “Open Heart” (at 10:20) follows an Italian cardiologist in Sudan who performs heart surgeries for young patients from Rwanda.

“POV: 56 Up” (WETA at 10) features the latest from the “Up” documentary series that started in 1964, interviewing a group of 7-year-olds in Britain and catching up with them again every seven years. Pete, a musician, participates for the first time since he was 28 and accidentally made waves with comments about Margaret Thatcher.

A young female murder suspect will talk only with Castle and refuses to cooperate with any other detective as she takes a bunch of people hostage on “Castle” (ABC at 10).

Liz must go up against a drug lord in court on “The Blacklist” (NBC at 10), and needs Red’s help when a witness in the case goes missing at the last minute.

Need an update on Paula Deen? The celebrity chef gets the “E! True Hollywood Story” (at 10) treatment, as the documentary profiles her rise to fame and fall from grace, thanks to the recent scandal.

Actors Ray Romano and James Franco are on “Late Show With David Letterman” (CBS at 11:35).

“The Tonight Show With Jay Leno” (NBC at 11:35) hosts actor Robin Williams, entrepreneur Mark Cuban and singer Gavin DeGraw.

Actor Woody Harrelson and pop star Ke$ha are on “Jimmy Kimmel Live” (ABC at 11:35), along with musical guest Ben Rector.
