TV Highlights: ‘Unforgettable’ gets a second chance on CBS


Saturday night’s “Hidden Away” (Lifetime at 8) is a classic Lifetime Original Movie: A woman pretends she and her daughter were killed so they can escape her abusive husband, but eight years later, he discovers they’re still alive and well in Palm Springs.

Likewise, “Second Chances” (Hallmark at 9) is classic Hallmark: A single mom working at a 911 call center flirts with a firefighter when he calls in an emergency, and when he is injured and needs a place to stay, guess who happens to be renting out a guest room for extra money?

OWN brings back “Iyanla: Fix My Life” (OWN at 9), featuring life coach Iyanla Vanzant trying to help with people’s problems, and “Welcome to Sweetie Pie’s” (at 10), following the adventures at a family-owned soul food restaurant in St. Louis.

Fox rolls out Animation Domination High-Def, a new animated programming block starting at 11 p.m. that offers 15-minute animated shows, starting with “Axe Cop” and “High School USA!”

Sunday talk shows: “Fox News Sunday” (Fox at 9) hosts Treasury Secretary Jack Lew and Sen. Mike Lee (R-Utah); “White House Chronicle” (WETA at 9) has WTOP’s Dave McConnell, The Washington Post’s Terence Samuel and U.S. News & World Report’s Ken Walsh; “State of the Union” (CNN at 9) features Lew, Rep. Peter T. King (R-N.Y.) and Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.); “This Week” (ABC at 10) features “Scandal” executive producer and crisis management expert Judy Smith, Lew, and Sens. Richard J. Durbin (D-Ill.) and Saxby Chambliss (R-Ga.); “Newsmakers” (C-SPAN at 10) talks to Sen. Ron Wyden (D-Ore.); “This Is America & the World” (WETA at 10 and WHUT at 6 p.m.) talks to Harold Forsyth, Peru’s ambassador to the United States; “Meet the Press” (NBC at 10:30) has Lew and Rep. Mike Rogers (R-Mich); “Face the Nation” (CBS at 10:30) talks to Rogers and Sen. Mark Udall (D-Colo.); and “Bloomberg Government’s Capitol Gains” (WUSA at 11:30) has Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack and Bloomberg’s Allan Holmes and Rob Levinson.

Canceled and then brought back to life, “Unforgettable” (CBS at 9) gets a second life. Carrie — the NYPD detective with an impeccable memory — investigates a kidnapping.

New docu-series “Total Divas” (E! at 10) chronicles the lives of the women who work as the famous WWE Divas.

On the Season 3 premiere of “Oprah: Where Are They Now?” (OWN at 10), the former talk show host gives an update on her half-sister, Patricia Lee, as well as “Survivor’s” first-season winner, Richard Hatch, and actress Denise Richards.
