Elvis Presley movies and documentaries, TV Land and Turner Classic Movies. On the 30th anniversary of Elvis Presley's death, cable offers some long looks. TV Land has obsessed on Presley all month. Tonight, it has "Ed Sullivan Show" segments at 4:30 p.m. and "Elvis, By the Presleys," a family documentary, at 5 p.m. That's followed at 7 p.m. by "Myths and Legends," checking lingering ideas. Was Presley related to Oprah Winfrey? Did he hope Richard Nixon would make him a drug agent? Turner counters with a mixed batch of movies. Two good ones — "Jailhouse Rock" (1957) at 2 p.m. and "Viva Las Vegas" (1964) at 4 p.m. — are sandwiched by the awful "Kissin' Cousins" (1964) at 12:15 p.m. and "Clambake" (1967) at 5:30 p.m.

"I Hate My 30s," 7:30 p.m., VH1. Here's the fun episode that VH1 scheduled for last week, then delayed. When Vicki enters a battle of the bands, people are reluctant to mention how awful she is.
