1) “Grand Hotel” debut, 10:01 p.m., ABC. Summer, we’re told, is about sun and fun and mindless pleasure; “Grand Hotel” has all of that, especially the mindlessness. Amid the beauty of a 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 are schemers with dark secrets. An exception is the owner’s daughter, fresh from grad school and filled with optimism … which will soon be strained.
2) MTV Movie and TV Awards, 9 p.m., MTV. As the summer movie season gets rolling, this fits in neatly. Zachary Levi (“Shazam”) hosts and Martin Garrix sings “Summer Days,” alongside Patrick Stump and Macklemore. Lizzo also performs and there are special awards for Jada Pinkett Smith and Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson. Up for best movie are “Avengers: Endgame,” “BlackKklansman,” “Us,” “Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse” and “To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before.”
3) “The Bachelorette,” 8-10:01 p.m., ABC. When love lets you down, you can always go to the romantic world of …. Latvia? That’s the case tonight, ABC says. Unhappy with her feuding men, Hannah Brown now finds herself wih them in Riga, a 700-year-old coastal town known for its arts and architecture. She soon vents to Chris Harrison about her disappointments so far.
4) “American Ninja Warrior,” 8-10 p.m., NBC. The show moves to Mondays, joining a reality overload. ABC has “Bachelorette” and Fox has “Beat Shazam” and “So You Think You Can Dance”; only CBS (“The Neighborhood,” “God Friended Me,” “Bull”) counters with scripted reruns.
5) “Village of the Year,” any time, www.acorn.tv. And on a reality-stuffed day, this streaming service gives us … well, its first reality show. In 24 episodes – six on each of the next four Mondays – it visits the sort of charming places we usually see in murder mysteries. The opener even has one that sprawls the English-Welsh border. For a time, smoking was legal in one pub, not the other. Everyone gets along splendidly, one man says “unless there’s a soccer match between England and Wales.”
