?What is it about country music stars that they seem to need award vindication on a near-weekly basis?

?Jazz fans, on the other hand, will most likely be happier over on TCM, which is hosting a jazz-themed documentary festival.
The evening kicks off with Dave Brubeck: In His Own Sweet Way (8 ET/5 PT), followed by Thelonious Monk: Straight No Chaser (9:30 ET/6:30 PT) and Eastwood After Hours: Live at Carnegie Hall (11:15 ET/8:15 PT).
?The Middle (ABC, 8:30 ET/PT) repeats one of its best episodes tonight, as Frankie and Mike decide they're tired of being at their kids' beck-and-call and rally to take back the house.
