1) Movies, cable. To re-live some long-ago fun, catch the delightful “Ghostbusters” (1984) — shown here with Harold Ramis, Bill Murray and Dan Aykroyd — at 7 p.m. on AMC. The fairly good “Ghostbusters II” (1989) follows at 9:35. For a newer hit, “Descendants 3” is at 8 p.m. on Disney; if you include delayed viewing, this bright musical drew an extraordinary 11.2 million viewers for its debut.
2) “What Would You Do?” 9 p.m., ABC. After lots of summer silliness on all the networks, ABC News is giving us a few interesting weeks viewing human nature. Each hour has hidden cameras watch a faked situation, to see how bystanders react. The season’s first two episodes have included rude restaurants, a clumsy bagger and a cashier who mocked an old man for paying in coins. One woman was clearly overdosing on opioids; another was desperately sharing a meager meal with two children.
3) Football, 8 p.m. ET, CBS. Trying to bounce back from 6-10 seasons last year, the Buffalo Bills and Detroit Lions have had opposite pre-seasons. The Bills are 2-0, outscoring their opponents 51-30; the Lions are 0-2, outscored 61-26. After holding quarterback Matthew Stafford out of both games, the Lions may be ready to play him for this home game.
4) “BH90210,” 8 p.m., Fox. Here’s a quick rerun of Wednesday’s episode, which has seven former “Beverly Hills 90210” actors playing fictional versions of themselves. This one even adds an eighth – Carol Potter, who played the mother of Brandon and Brenda. Tori Spelling scrambles, when there are doubts that Shannen Doherty (who played Brenda) will do the reboot. Also, Ian Ziering hasn’t told his gorgeous young wife that he knows about her affair.
5) And streaming. “Jawline” arrives today on Hulu, with a documentary view of young people groping for online fame. Meanwhile, Amazon Prime introduces two comedy specials – Alice Wetterlund and the #MomSoHard duo of Kristin Hensley and Jen Smedley. And Netflix debuts “Rust Valley Restorers,” a six-parter focusing on car buffs in the foothills of the Canadian Rockies.
