TONIGHT’S MUST-SEE: “In Performance at the White House,” 9
p.m., PBS (check local listings).
This is a great TV week for music. “American Idol” and “The
Voice” had their finales, country had its tribute to the troops and PBS’ “National
Memorial Day Concert” is coming Sunday. Now PBS fills a gap by rerunning last
month’s “Women of Soul” concert.
Here are some greats – Aretha Franklin, Patti LaBelle, Jill
Scott, Melissa Etheridge – joined by newcomers Janelle Monae, Ariana Grande and
Tessanne Chin. And many stations follow by rerunning the “Memphis Soul” concert
in the White House; it mixes classic stars (Mavis Staples, Sam Moore, etc.)
with Justin Timberlake, Queen Latifah, Alabama Shakes and more.
TONIGHT’S MIGHT-SEE: “Hannibal” finale, 10:01 p.m., NBC.
In the first minutes of this season, “Hannibal” pointed to
this moment: It flashed forward to a fierce fight between Jack (Laurence
Fishburne), the FBI guy, and Hannibal Lecter, the serial killer and cannibal.
Then “Hannibal” spent the season getting there. Now Jack
realizes Lecter framed Will, the decent-but-fragile consultant. NBC isn’t
bringing it back, so let’s hope this hour wraps things up.
TONIGHT’S ALTERNATIVE: “Labyrinth” conclusion, 8-10 p.m.,
During an archeological dig, Alice sensed a connection with
Alais (Jessica Brown Findlay, who was Lady Sybil in “Downton Abbey”), a 13th-century
Frenchwoman. The story leaped between both lives.
We saw Alice in the modern world, pursued by thugs who think
she found a vital artifact. And we see Alais, facing a castle siege by the
Pope’s army. The story’s conclusion is dark and violent, but manages to tie
together a fairly good story that spans centuries and emotions.
Other choices include:
“Undercover Boss,” 8 p.m., CBS. “Unforgettable” has ended
its Friday run, but will start its third season June 29, in a
summertime-Sundays line-up. Now “Boss” returns with reruns, starting with the
CEO of the Utah Jazz. Joining the Dunk Team, he becomes (among other things) a
“24,” 8 p.m., Fox. On an overcrowded Monday, you might have
missed this episode so here’s a second chance. As forces pursue Jack Bauer in
London, he heads to the U.S. embassy; he’s trying to prevent the assassination
of the U.S. president, who currently faces a verbal barrage when speaking to
“Gang Related,” 9 p.m., Fox. This rerun of Thursday’s debut
starts with a wildly over-the-top car chase and shoot-out; it later adds unlikely
foot chases. In between, however, is a deep, cable-style drama about a young
cop who remains loyal to the crime boss who was his boyhood protector.
“Hawaii Five-0,” 9 p.m., CBS. A zombie-like man is shot on
Halloween. Soon, the Five-0 team scrambles to stop someone from doing
experiments on humans. Also in this rerun, Rumer Willis, the daughter of Bruce
Willis and Demi Moore, returns as Sabrina, the girlfriend of Max (Masi Oka).
“Blue Bloods,” 10 p.m., CBS. A little girl may have been
kidnapped; her mother denies it, but Danny feels her story doesn’t add up. Also
in this rerun, Frank visits a priest who was arrested for drunken-driving.
“Chrome Underground” debut, 10 p.m., Discovery. This reality
show offers a different kind of global treasure hunt – finding and bringing
back valuable old cars. It involves big money in dangerous places, so the car
buffs bring along an ex-Marine. The opener seeks a 1937 Bugatti in Mexico City.
