TX Time: 18h00
Genre: Wildlife, Documentary Series

Photo Ark 2

Photo Ark is a multi-year effort to document every species living in zoos and wildlife sanctuaries, inspire action through education, and help save wildlife by supporting on-the-ground conservation efforts.

National Geographic photographer Joel Sartore started the Photo Ark in his hometown of Lincoln, Nebraska, in 2006.

Since then, he has visited more than 50 countries and photographed more than 10,000 species in his quest to create this photo archive of global biodiversity.

No matter its size, each animal is treated with the same amount of affection and respect.

The results are portraits that are not just stunningly beautiful, but also intimate and moving.

Now Joel is back and it's kind of a surprise considering what he encountered during production of the first season of Rare: Creatures of the Photo Ark.

Over the course of three episodes, Joel nearly killed himself in pursuit of the elusive Cross-River Gorilla in Cameroon, cursed on television as a spectacular horn billed sandpiper ruthlessly attacked his camera and drew blood from his hand, joyfully picked through piles of dung in search of new species of dung beetle, and brought home thousands of indelible images of animals on the brink.

The Good Doctor 2

Freddie Highmore stars as Dr. Shaun Murphy, a young surgeon with autism and savant syndrome, who relocates from a quiet country life to join the prestigious St. Bonaventure hospital's surgical unit.

Alone in the world and unable to personally connect with those around him, his only advocate, Dr. Aaron Glassman (Richard Schiff), challenges the skepticism and prejudices of the hospital's board and staff when he brings him in to join the team.

In the Season 2 premiere, "Hello": Shaun's proposed treatment for a homeless patient puts him and Jared in Andrews' crosshairs.

Meanwhile, Claire tries to overcome Melendez's reluctance to do a risky heart operation while Glassman must overcome his personal feelings about his oncologist, Dr. Marina Blaize (guest star Lisa Edelstein), and face a difficult decision about his health.
