On TV

JOJO’S FOLLOW YOUR D.R.E.A.M. 8 p.m. on Nickelodeon USA. JoJo Siwa, a YouTube personality and former reality star on Lifetime’s “Dance Moms,” has taken Generation Z by storm — and sparkles. The performer embarked on an international tour, “D.R.E.A.M. the Tour,” in May; this Nickelodeon special documents her journey, with looks inside rehearsals and backstage at her shows, as well as at her time on the road, during which she mostly lived on a glittery tour bus. While the unabashed peppiness of the superstar may baffle older generations, JoJo’s millions of followers on various social media platforms, consumer-product empire and sold-out concerts are reason enough to believe she is just getting started.

A SUMMER ROMANCE 9 p.m. on The Hallmark Channel. No, it’s not Christmas, but that doesn’t mean it’s not a good time for another original romance film from The Hallmark Channel. In “A Summer Romance,” Samantha Walker (Erin Krakow), owner of her family’s ranch, has a difficult choice: sell her family’s legacy, or risk foreclosure. To make matters more complicated, Richard Belmont (Ryan Paevey), a real estate developer, arrives at the ranch to buy it, but his plans for the property might cause it to lose some of its charm. As romance blooms, the impending sale could undermine everything.
