1) “The Terror: Infamy” debut, 9 p.m., AMC. Two horrors – one supernatural, the other real and historical — blend. The backdrop is the internment of Japanese-Americans during World War II. On an island and at the camp, the terror begins – ill winds, ominous predictions, sudden blindness or death. This clearly isn’t for everyone, but it’s well-crafted. Despite his surname and his past credits (“Narcos”), Josef Kubota Wladyka has family roots in Japan; he directed this beautifully. (For a story about the show and co-star George Takei, hit “Stories” or scroll to the bottom and hit “older posts.”)
2) “The Big Bang Theory,” 8:30 and 9 p.m., CBS. Here are two reruns of TV’s best comedy. The first introduces the dull-minded scientists (Sean Astin and Kal Penn) who accidentally confirm Sheldon and Amy’s theory … then want a chunk of the credit. The second gives Sheldon a dilemma, when friends want him to break some rules.
3) “Grand Hotel,” 10:01 p.m., ABC. This is all about secrets. Tonight, Gigi learns what her husband (Santiago,the hotel owner) was hiding. And Danny — working undercover at the hotel while probing his sister’s disappearance — tries to keep them from discovering his romance with Santiago’s daughter.
4) “Lodge 49” season-opener, 10:10 p.m., AMC. Last season ended with some jolts: Dud was attacked by a shark and Ernie inexplicably dropped out as the lodge leader. There will be something much bigger, tonight’s first scene shows — but that’s a flashforward to later in the season. For now, Dud has crutches and a lawyer. The lawyer scenes are funny, others are odd, but “Lodge 49” remains interesting.
5) ALSO: “Family Pictures,” a good-spirited PBS show that uses old photos to study a region, debuts at 9 p.m., visiting North Carolina. It concludes Tuesday with Detroit and Florida. And “My Life is Murder” has its second hour, any time on www.acorn.tv. Like the first one, it has a slick look and a likeable star (Lucy Lawless); unlike the first, it has a well-developed story. As a police colleague puts it: “How can you say no to a locked-door mystery?”
