The Gospel of Eureka (10 p.m., PBS / UNC-TV) - This American Masters documentary looks at Eureka Springs, Arkansas, a town with a population of just over 2,000 known for being a Southern haven from LGBTQ people, and also for being the site of the long-running Great Passion Play, a reenactment of Jesus’ life and crucifixion. Towering over the town is a seven-story-tall white statue of Jesus. The documentary presents this parallel universe of conservative christians and their LGBTQ neighbors, who coincidentally, puts on their own “play” in the way of an irreverant drag show at a popular gay bar, and how those communities peacefully (for the most part) coexist.

Legion (10 p.m., FX) - In the Season 3 premiere, David gains a following.
