SEC Storied: The Book of Manning, 8:00p.m. (ESPN)
A lucky filmmaker gets a rare look at the reclusive Manning family, a group that so loathes attention, they’re like the snow leopards of football. Actually, this film focuses on Archie Manning and his playing days. Of course there will be a lot of attention given to his children Peyton, Eli and Meg Griffin.

Meet Yi Fang, a man who accomplishes what appeared to be previously impossible: coming off as likable during the WSOP. ESPN is hoping that Fang has meme potential–so much so that they’re spreading this clip of a memorable hand between him and Jonathan Jaffe.

Being: Mike Tyson, 10:00p.m. (Fox Sports 1)
Fox delves into the well-traveled ground of Mike Tyson, the enigma. This series focuses on the day-to-day of his life, rather than spending a lot of time on his backstory. One thing that may separate this from the many other Tyson docs is an accompanying blog written by Tyson’s wife for each episode.
Brew Dogs, 10:00p.m. (Esquire)
A pair of Scottish brewmeisters travel around the United States looking for the perfect American beer. As a twist, they will produce a brew of their own that represents the town they’re in. They use fog as an ingredient for the San Francisco beer and coffee in Seattle. If they don’t make a blue beer in Albuquerque, they’re doing things wrong.
