1) CMT Music Awards, 8 p.m., CMT, rerunning at 10:30. The show will have the most performances in its history, CMT insists. And these are A-list stars — Carrie Underwood (shown here), Luke Bryan, Keith Urban, Kelsea Ballerini and more. Two of this year’s nominations leaders, Maren Morris and the Zac Brown Band, will perform; so will the hosts, Little Big Town, plus Thomas Rhett, Tanya Tucker, Toby Keith, Cole Swindellm Kane Brown. For crossover, there’s Boyz II Men, Sheryl Crow, Brandi Carlile and Trombone Shorty.
2) “The Handmaid’s Tale” season-opener, any time, Hulu. For each of its first two years, this won the Emmys for best drama actress (Elisabeth Moss) and series. Now it’s back, in a week of big returns. “Tales of the City” arrives Friday on Netflix, “Big Little Lies” is Sunday on HBO.
3) “The Amazing Race,” 8 p.m., CBS. Seven of the 11 duos remain, including two that include “Big Brother” champions (Rachel Reilly and Nicole Franzel). Tonight, in Switzerland, the show has a first – a U-turn vote held in public.
4) “Grown-ish” return, 8 p.m. Wednesday, FX. Just before the show’s three-month break, Zoey’s comfy life crumbled. She was caught cheating on an exam; her parents cut off her support. Now comes a new blow: Aaron, whom she’d once considered a boyfriend possibility, has been having sex with her best friend Ana. Zoey’s gripe seems weak here – she chose Luka over Aaron – but this does give us a witty analysis of “relationship” and “situationship” and “girl code” and other modern mysteries.
5) “My Last Days” and “Jane the Virgin,” 8 and 9 p.m., CW. This wraps up a three-Wednesday stretch with double Justin Baldoni. “My Last Days” — the excellent documenary series he hosts, produces and directs, meeting people with life-ending ailments – closes its season. Then we see Rafael (Baldoni) and Jane settle for mere friendship, while raising their son. It’s a fairly good hour, ranging from her mom’s cancer crisis to her dad’s ongoing battles with River Fields (Brooke Shields), his telenovela co-star.
