“15 Songs That Changed Country Music," 10:01 p.m., ABC.
In past years, Robin
Roberts preceded the Country Music Association awards with a batch of
Nashville interviews. This time, two days before the awards, she
tries to pinpoint songs that triggered changes.
ABC isn't saying
which they are, except that the hour ranges from Hank Williams to
Taylor Swift. There will be performances by Martina McBride, Lady
Antebellum, Hunter Hayes and Kacey Musgravees, plus comments and
memories from Keith Urban, Luke Bryan, Brad Paisley and more.
II: “Jane the Virgin,” 9 p.m., CW.
After a close call,
Jane's virginity is still intact. The alternative is a hurry-up
wedding, one week away.
That leads to some
quick humor (especially involving the well-meaning priest) and some
dead-serious moments. One bridal-salon scene is gorgeous; another
scene offers heartbreak. It's complicated (in clever, telenovela
ways), so be sure to catch the first minutes, when the narrator tries
to explain it all.
ALTERNATIVE: “Olive Kitteridge” conclusion, 9-11 p.m., HBO.
leaped between tragedy and humor, while introducing cranky, crabby
Olive (Frances McDormand). Now the conclusion sheds most of the
humor, while somehow getting us to like her.
Olive badgered her
son (improperly), disliked his wife and in-laws (properly) and
belittled her saintly husband. Now old age strikes: In some ways,
she's not ready; in others, she's always been there,
and “Monuments Men” (2014), 7:15 and 9 p.m., Starz. Here's an
exceptional double-feature – first Disney's animated gem, then a
George Clooney film – sometimes contrived, but always entertaining
– about the real-life effort to preserve art masterpieces in the
final days of World War II.
“Dancing With the
Stars,” 8-10:01 p.m., ABC. Last week, after all the Halloween-time
commotion, Tommy Chong and Antonio Sabato Jr. finished in the bottom.
Sabato was sent home; Chong – at 76, one of the oldest dancers in
the show's history – has reached the final seven.
8-10 p.m., NBC. Here's the last “knock-out round” night. It's
followed by a recap on Tuesday and then the live episodes, beginning
p.m., Fox. As battles between the Falcone and Maroni mobs get fierce,
Gordon regrets not killing “The Penguin” when he had a chance.
9 p.m., Fox. With Katrina in deep danger, Abbie and Ichabod rush to
10 p.m., NBC. After an Iranian nuclear scientist is killed, Red warns
that a cunning hitman has been hired to retaliate by killing an
Lens,” 10 p.m., PBS (check local listings). In India, the
once-thriving city of Kanpur is crippled by black-outs. The power
company promises 18 hours of electricity a day but, this film says,
often falls short. We meet Ritu, whose career crashed when she tried
to enforce rules ... and Loha, 28, whose mission was to thwart her,
becoming a neighborhood hero with his ragged ways
to steal power.
