Bernard Lefkowitz's bestseller Our Guys (9 p.m., ABC), about the 1989 coverup of a sexual assault on a mentally challenged girl by a group of high school jocks in Glen Ridge, N.J., becomes a TV movie. Heather Matarazzo ("Welcome to the Dollhouse") plays the victim; Ally Sheedy and Eric Stoltz are the investigators who uncovered the crime. The new cable movie Different (9 p.m., Lifetime) stars Annabeth Gish as a mentally challenged mother (are you detecting a pattern in tonight's docudramas?) whose own mother (Lynn Redgrave) challenges her for custody of her young daughter.
