    As Aaron Barnhart writes today, One Day at a Time may be TV's most resilient show. In its first incarnation, it spent barely a season in the same timeslot, yet still managed to crack the Neilsen top ten. When Netflix canceled its reboot, it found a new home on Pop TV. And when COVID-19 shut down production on the show's fourth season, the show's creative team rallied to produce an all-new animated special, airing tonight. Also today: America's Got Talent continues scouting gifted performers, Vanderpump Rules airs part three of its reunion, and The CW Happy Hour delivers a another round of laughs. Here's what's new and noteworthy on TV for Tuesday:

    ANIMATED EPISODE: Although production on its fourth season was shut down back in March, One Day at a Time is back with an animated special entitled "The Politics Episode," in which the family is visited by conservative cousin Estrellita (Melissa Fumero), along with Juanito (Lin-Manuel Miranda) and Mirtha (Gloria Estefan) for an episode that's sure to have fans seeing the beloved characters in a whole new way. Watch a preview. 9:30 PM ET on Pop TV

    NEW EPISODE: Last week gave us The Demented Brothers, Celina, and Shakir and Rehan.
