“Tickled,” 10pm, Monday, HBO. An engrossing doc about how someone with an insane amount of money attempts to thwart journalistic freedom. New Zealand reporter David Farrierdigs incessantly to find the truth about competitive tickling. Honest. Stick around, though, for “Tickle King,” a 20-min mini that continues the story with outstanding footage of the alleged ringleader. — “60 Days In” Season 3 premiere, Thursday, 9pm, A&E. You have to be on a crusade to volunteer to spend 60 days in jail for a TV series. This opener profiles the people who did. — Notable: “Conan Without Borders: Made in Mexico,” 10pm, Wednesday, TBS. Conan O’Brien’s most recent “Without Borders” special was an hysterical yet poignant trip to Berlin, where he deftly mixed comedy, culture and politics. Conan visited a polka band duo, a dominatrix and a refugee camp. His sixth international special, which was unavailable to us for review, will include celebs, such as actor Diego Luna and former president Vicente Fox. Considering the precarious state of U.S.-Mexico affairs, the special should be worth a look. — “Mythbusters: The Search,” 9pm ET, Saturday, Science. Props to Science for this live special from Jersey City’s Liberty Science Center. A quartet of mythbusters will attempt to prove that you can break out of jail using a rocket made from a rigged water heater. – Seth Arenstein
