1) “Motown 60: A Grammy Celebration,” 9-11 p.m., CBS. Here is a cascade of stars, young (Tori Kelly, Chloe x Halle, Fantasia) and old, with Thelma Houston, 72, Diana Ross, 74, and co-host Smokey Robinson, 79. There are potent medleys from Ne-Yo (shown here) and Jennifer Lopez, plus a rousing tribute to Motown women. And there’s deep emotion: Watch Ross sing to Motown founder Berry Gordy … Stevie Wonder sing to a montage of departed stars … and John Legend soar with the music of Marvin Gaye.
2) “American Idol,” 8-10 p.m., ABC. Disney songs will be performed by each of the 10 finalists and by two guest acts — Lea Michele and a duet by last year’s winner and runner-up, Maddie Poppe and Caleb Lee Hutchinson. Two people will be ousted before Monday’s “Meet the Finalists” special.
3) Easter movies, cable. On the light side, Hallmark repeats Saturday’s “Easter Under Wraps” at 6 p.m. and Turner Classic Movies has the 1948 “Easter Parade” (Irving Berlin tunes, with Judy Garland and Fred Astaire) at 8. More seriously, History repeats the full “Jesus: His Life” from 4 p.m. to midnight and TCM has a marathon: “Silver Chalice” (1954) at noon, “Barabbas” (1962) at 2:30 p.m., “The Shoes of the Fisherman” (1968) at 5 and both “King of Kings,” at 10 p.m. (1961) and 1 a.m. (1927).
4) “Good Girls,” 10 p.m., NBC. With clever little flashbacks, we see how these three met, 28 years ago. That’s key now, with Ruby on the brink of giving Beth to police, to save her husband’s career. As usual, this hour mixes humor and drama cleverly … but has its people turn indecisive at annoying moments.
5) “Les Miserables” and “The Chi,” 9 p.m. PBS, 10 p.m., Showtime. Life is brutal in old France and new Chicago. In one, Fantine (Lily Collins) – abandoned by her rich lover – wanders desperately with her young daughter. In the other, Ronnie is frantic to get out of jail and see his grandmother, who was savagely beaten. He’s recanted his confession, creating crises for Kevin and for Det. Cruz.
