Like Father, Like Son (9 p.m., WGN) - The premiere of this new series starring Duane “Dog” Chapman (of “Dog the Bounty Hunter” and “Dog’s Most Wanted”) starts with Dog’s wife, Beth, having been diagnosed with throat cancer and deciding the best way to live out her last few months is to hunt down fugitives. According to TV Insider, Beth’s final days are covered on the show, including hair loss and her last days in the hospital, so this could be an emotional watch. Beth passed away on June 26, 2019.
