My Wild Affair (8pm, UNC-TV) - Get your “awwws!” ready – tonight’s episode (“The Seal Who Came Home”) looks at the 25-year bond between a harbor seal named Andre and Harry Goodridge, the arborist from Maine who rescued it as a pup in 1961. Over the next 25 years, Andre and Harry established a friendship that brought Andre into the world of humans without Andre’s ever having to sacrifice his wildness. The human world gave Andre shelter during the harsh New England winter, but staying wild at heart meant Andre had the know-how to make the 200-mile swim home to Rockport. This interspecies friendship weathered every kind of challenge, including, at the end, Andre’s blindness.
