1) “Good Trouble” return, 8 p.m. Tuesday, Freeform. Every now and then – but not often – TV has a surprise like this: A fairly good show delivers a terrific episode. This one is called “Percussion” and it keeps having Dennis — wracked with pain and self-loathing — pound his drum set. He has a brief-but-passionate storyline; Mariana has a so-so one. The real power involves the end of the trial of the cop who killed a black teen. Callie, the lawyer (Maia Mitchell, show here with Beau Mirchofff) and Malika, the activist, are enmeshed, with fierce impact.
2) “Grand Hotel” debut, 10:01 p.m. today, ABC. Now for the opposite of “Good Trouble”: This is a blue-sky soap opera about pretty people at a gorgeous, Miami Beach hotel. We meet the owner (a widower), his son and daughter, his new wife and her two daughters, plus key staffers. Most are gorgeous; most, of course, are schemers filled with dark secrets. One exception is the owner’s daughter, fresh from grad school and filled with bright-eyed optimism. She’ll have a busy summer.
3) “Reef Break” opener, 10 p.m. Thursday, ABC. This network wants to bathe us in tropical sunshine this summer. Three days after opening “Grand Hotel,” it has Poppy Montgomery (“Without a Trace and “Unforgettable”) producing and starring. She plays Cat Chambers, a former crook who returns to her home on a Pacific island. When she’s at the center of a kidnapping, her knowledge of crime and criminals comes in handy. Soon, the governor of the island hires her for some more adventures.
4) “BET Awards,” 8 p.m. ET Sunday, BET, rerunning at 12:30 a.m. Here’s an early-summer burst of starpower. Cardi B leads with seven nominations, including best album (going against Travis Scott, Meek Mill, Ella Mai and The Carters). She’ll perform, along with Billy Ray Cyrus, DJ Khaled, City Girl, Migus, Lucky Daye, Kiana Lede and more. Mary J. Blige gets a special award. Regina Hall hosts and is up for best actress, going against Taraji Henson, Viola Davis, Tiffany Haddish and Issa Rae.
5) “Yellowstone” season-opener, 10 p.m. Wednesday, Paramount, rerunning at 11:11 p.m. and 12:22 a.m. After building a mega-ranch at the edge of Yellowstone, John Dutton (Kevin Costner) faces pressure on all sides. One son is a lawyer and politician, opposing his dad; the other is an ex-SEAL who moved onto the neighboring reservation with his wife and son. Also, the daughter schemes with land developers. Filmed in the sprawling beauty of Montana and Utah, this has an epic look and feel.
6) “Holey Moley” and “Food Fight,” 8 and 9 p.m. Thursday, ABC. A primetime, network show about miniature golf? Yes, things get strange in the summer. For these, the husband-wife Currys are in charge. Steph (better-known for basketball) is also a golf buff; he’s the producer and resident golf pro for the10-week “Holey,” with Rob Riggle doing commentary. Ayesha is a cook who does books and videos; now she hosts a competition: Instead of high cuisine, it has families combining to do everyday-type meals.
7) “American Masters: Robert Shaw,” 9 p.m., PBS (check local listings). “My entire life has been a make-up lesson,” Shaw said. A preacher’s kid from a town of 3,000, he had no formal music education. But Fred Waring saw him conduct a college group and hired him; at 22, Shaw did 500 shows a year. Some people scoffed … until Arturo Toscanini called him “maestro” and George Szell hired him for the Cleveland Orchestra. Many stations will follow this a 10 p.m. with a Cleveland Orchestra rerun.
8) Big3 basketball season-opener, 8 p.m. ET Saturday and 1 p.m. Sunday, CBS. You didn’t think the men’s basketball season would end, did you? As soon as the NBA finishes, Big3 starts its third season. It’s 3-on-3, half-court, with a 14-second shot clock and a 25-point half, stuffed with ex-pros (Lamar Odom, Jason Richardson, Metta World Peace, etc). This season expands to 12 teams, with three quick games each Saturday and three more on Sundays; all will be carried by CBS or the CBS Sports Network.
9) “City on a Hill,” 9 p.m., Sunday Showtime, rerunning at 10. Last week’s opener (rerunning at 7 p.m.) linked a rule-breaking FBI agent (Kevin Bacon) and a prosecutor (Aldis Hodge) who tried working through the system. One is white, one is black; in a racially charged, early-’90s Boston, both seek the gang that pulled a lethal armored-car robbery. This second episode – like the first, beautifully written (albeit fiercely foul-tongued) and played — gives Bacon progress at work and a crisis at home.
10) And more, Sunday. A month before the 50th anniversary of the moon landing, CNN has “Apollo 11,” an intricately assembled portrait of the mission, using only footage from the time. That’s 9 p.m. ET Sunday, rerunning at 11, barring local news. “Masterpiece: Endeavour” (9-10:30 p.m., PBS) uses that era’s moon-interest as the backdrop for a fairly good (albeit tangled) murder mystery. And at 8, ABC has Nik and Lijana Wallenda doing a highwire act; that will be live in Eastern and Central zones.
