To watch

White Light/Black Rain: Hiroshima and Nagasaki, 7:30 p.m., HBO: A grim anniversary is acknowledged in this new documentary, which revisits the 1945 bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki.

Series finale: Age of Love, 9 p.m., WFLA-Ch. 8: Mark decides between the remaining 20-something and 40-something. And as long as they get their paychecks for the show, they probably don't care how it turns out, either.

Fat March, 9 p.m., WFTS-Ch. 28: Need to lose weight? Just walk it off. That's the concept behind this new reality series, which invites chubby contestants to go on a "journey of a lifetime." They begin at the starting line for the Boston Marathon and head for Washington, D.C., with two fitness trainers coaxing them along. The incentives: A slimmer physique and cash prizes.
