8:00 PM The Incredible Shrinking Man

9:30 PM Them!

11:15 PM The Magnetic Monster 

12:45 PM Die, Monster, Die!

2:15 AM The Giant Behemoth

3:45 AM The H-Man

5:15 AM The Phantom From 10,000 Leagues 

Good lineup but I would've swapped Shrinking and Die for Godzilla and Mothra.

I agree with you- "Die Monster Die" is not about atomic radiation but a weak adaptation of H P Lovecrafts " The Color Out of Space" about the effects of an alien meteorite.

Also I can't help but find it odd to see a horror movie star like Boris Karloff in a movie like that. The only reason I'd get rid of shrinking man is because I didn't know that it was supposed to be about radiation, I just thought it was some weird mist. Also I find it strange that they played the H-Man over Godzilla and Mothra since it's not as famous as those movies are. I'm not insulting TCM but I feel like it could have different or split into two nights like that mental health theme a couple of weeks ago.

The various Starz Encore channels have been airing the Godzilla movies from the Shōwa era recently which probably precludes TCM from doing the same that night.

I know, it's just when it comes to monsters caused by radiation, Godzilla and the other Toho kaiju are probably the most famous.
