The Crimson Petal and the White (8-10 p.m. Monday, Encore) A young prostitute tries to escape her seamy life in Victorian London by latching onto a wealthy client in this dark but impressive two-part miniseries. For a full review, go to page 1M.
Go On (9 p.m. Tuesday, NBC) Matthew Perry gives TV another shot, playing a sarcastic sports-talk host whose radio station forces him into group counseling after his wife is killed in an auto accident. Doesn’t sound like sitcom material to you? Well, you’re wrong. Perry’s subversive needling of the New Age airhead therapist can be quite funny. But when the grief wells up, as it sometimes does, Go On can also feel like a punch in the stomach.
Bomb Girls (10 p.m. Tuesday, Reelz) As the world dissolved into combat in 1941, men went to war and women went to work — often in defense plants. Meg Tilly stars in this drama set in a Canadian munitions factory.

Guys With Kids (10-10:30 p.m. Wednesday) The 150 millionth iteration of Three Men and a Baby proves that there’s still life in the concept if you do it right — which Guys With Kids soooo does. Anthony Anderson, Jesse Bradford and Zach Cregger are hilarious in their various roles as single or stay-at-home dads.
