TV HIGHLIGHTS

“Antiques Roadshow” (WETA and MPT at 8 p.m.) wraps up in Billings, Mont., and examines lots of expensive jewelry, such as diamond and jade rings worth $60,000 from a 1925 collection, and a sword from 1843.

The last seven “Dancing With the Stars” (ABC at 8) couples dance to their favorite guilty pleasure songs on performance night. Speaking of guilty pleasures, at least for people who deny they ever listened to boy bands, pop group Hanson appears on the show to sing its classic, “MMMBop.”

National Geographic Channel re-airs photojournalist/
filmmaker Tim Hetherington’s documentary “Restrepo” (at 9), several days after the news that Hetherington was killed while covering combat in Libya. The documentary — nominated for an Academy Award — follows the deployment of U.S. troops, specifically a 15-man outpost, in Afghanistan.

“American Experience” (WETA and MPT at 9) presents “Stonewall Uprising,” a documentary on the 1969 riot in New York City after a police raid at a Greenwich Village gay bar, and talks to both police and rioters who recall what happened.

Someone at the White House gets very ill on “The Event” (NBC at 9), so Sterling and the chief of staff search for who’s responsible.

Naomi decides that the best time to talk to Max about their relationship is at an academic competition on “90210” (CW at 9), especially when she thinks he’s being unfaithful.

A special, post-“Dancing With the Stars” episode of “Better With You” (ABC at 9:30) is all about — what do you know?! — dancing, as Casey and Mia take a class to get ready for the first dance at their wedding. Derek Hough (of “DWTS” fame) plays their instructor, while former CNN host Larry King makes a somewhat random guest appearance as himself.

Bethenny’s pleased with the way her own business and career are going on “Bethenny Ever After” (Bravo at 10), so she decides to take time out of her busy days and try to help her friends with their lives.

Singer Christina Aguilera and actor Paul Reiser visit “The Tonight Show With Jay Leno” (NBC at 11:35), along with musical guest Alison Krauss and Union Station featuring Jerry Douglas.

“Late Show With David Letterman” (CBS at 11:35) has talk show host Bill Maher, actress Cote de Pablo and a performance by Lupe Fiasco.
