DON’T MISS: “Quiz” – This thrilling three-part miniseries whisks viewers back to 2001 and a remarkable moment in British TV history. It recalls how Charles Ingram (Matthew Macfadyen), a former British Army major, and his wife, Diana (Sian Clifford), were accused of cheating their way to a million pounds on England’s “Who Wants to Be a Millionaire?” As Charles sat in the hot seat across from host Chris Tarrant (Michael Sheen), Diana and an alleged accomplice (Michael Jibson) supposedly coughed when the correct answers were read during the multiple-choice game show. But did they really do it? (10 p.m. Sunday, AMC).
