TV highlights: ‘To the Mat,’ ‘CMT Made’

HIGHLIGHTS

CMT tries out original movies with rom-com “To the Mat” (CMT at 8 p.m.), starring Ricky Schroder and singer Laura Bell Bundy. Schroder plays a laid-back ex-athlete who helps run the family’s struggling wrestling school, and he instantly clashes with Bundy’s character, a high-strung consultant from New York brought in to help keep the business alive.

“Inside Story: Dances With Wolves” (Bio at 8) examines the making of the famed ’90s movie and talks to various members of the crew, along with actor-director Kevin Costner.

Fourteen people in dire financial straits compete on “Ton of Cash” (VH1 at 9), in which the contestants must (literally) haul one ton of cash from Malibu, Calif., to Las Vegas in order to keep it all.

A marathoner visits Hank on “Royal Pains” (USA at 9) with an unusual body temperature, and later, Hank decides to find out why Boris is in such bad shape, health-wise.

Right after Wednesday night’s movie, CMT debuts its version of “Made” (at 10) — similar to sister network MTV’s show, except this one is for adults who want to chase a dream. In the opener, a Texas police officer and family man decides he wants to pursue his goal of becoming a professional wrestler.

Six-part thriller “The Hour” (BBC America at 10) debuts; it follows the drama behind the scenes of a weekly news show in London in the 1950s, including rivalries, romantic complications and, like any good drama, espionage and murder. It is reviewed by Hank Stuever on Page C1.

The last two pairs on the season finale of “Love in the Wild” (NBC at 10) go on an overnight challenge; in the end, the couples must figure out if they actually like each other or just clung together all these weeks to save each other from scary elements of the Costa Rican jungle.

T.K. seeks help from a new therapist on “Necessary Roughness” (USA at 10), and Dr. Dani is busy elsewhere as she counsels a star golfer with a few psychological issues.

The chefs on “Rocco’s Dinner Party” (Bravo at 10) end Season 1 with a meal for Liza Minnelli’s birthday celebration, which includes guests such as designer Kenneth Cole and comedian Sandra Bernhard.
