Here’s what to watch tonight:

Watergate: Blueprint for a Scandal (9 p.m., CNN)

CNN rebroadcasts its 4-part docuseries reexamining the infamous break-in that led to the downfall of the Richard Nixon presidency. The story is told firsthand by John Dean, former White House Counsel to President Nixon. All four parts air tonight.

From CNN: “Watergate: Blueprint for a Scandal is an immersive look inside Nixon’s inner circle and the schemes that took place behind closed doors by the Committee to Re-Elect the President that would eventually unravel his presidency. Across four revealing episodes, Dean divulges more than he ever could under oath, shedding new light on the back-channeling, the back-pedaling, and the backstabbing. Featuring rich archival footage and interviews with key insiders who had a front row seat to the biggest presidential scandal of the 20th century, Watergate: Blueprint for a Scandal questions if America has learned anything since Watergate, or if we, as a nation, are destined to repeat the past.”

The documentary series features new interviews with Bob Woodward, Carl Bernstein, Elizabeth Holtzman, Richard Ben-Veniste, Alexander Butterfield and others. In addition to airing on cable TV, the series will stream live for pay TV subscribers via CNN.com and CNN OTT and mobile apps under “TV Channels,” or via CNNgo where available. The series is also available on demand to pay TV subscribers via CNN.com, CNN apps, and cable operator platforms.
