CBS (8-9 p.m. ET)

Host Richard Thomas takes his 5-year-old son, Richard Francisco (but not his 6-month-old triplets), on a three-ring tour under the big top. Then ringmaster Paul Sorvino cracks the whip on the show's 112th year, with stars like animal tamer Gunther Gebel-Williams, aerialist Elvin Bale and one of the world's tiniest people, 33-inch Michu.
