1) “Live From Lincoln Center,” 9-10:30 p.m., PBS. OK, this isn’t live AND it isn’t from the Lincoln Center; other than that, the title is quite accurate. We follow the Chamber Music Society, as it visits and performs in iconic Greek settings (shown here). Classical pieces flow from the Ancient Amphitheater of Larissa, the Church of the Taxiarchon in Pelion and more.
2) Charlie Sheen roast, 9:30-11 p.m., Comedy Central. This was the perfect time and target– 2011, with Sheen at his weirdest. Seth MacFarlane hosted and did a brilliant bit with Sheen’s advance obituary. Amy Schumer — then unknown to many people (including, apparently, MacFarlane) had a great line about Sheen and Bruce Willis; she would soon vault to stardom. Others ranged from comedians (Jon Lovitz, Anthony Jeselnik) to … well, Mike Tyson and William Shatner. It was a fun night.
3) “Hawaii Five-0,” 8 p.m., CBS. Taryn Manning returns as McGarrett’s sister, now wanting him to help spy on her neighbors. (Hey, isn’t that what brothers are for?) Also in this rerun, the team investigates the murders of a ride-share driver and his passenger.
4) “Blue Bloods,” 10 p.m., CBS. As police commissioner, Frank (Tom Selleck) faces two dilemmas in this rerun: A cop-killer is up for parole and his daughter wants him to back a state police bill, part of a deal she made with the governor. Also, his son pursues the same suspect twice, when a lineup fails.
5) Also: Netflix has “The Spy,” a six-parter based on the real life of Eli Cohen, a key Israeli in the 1960s. Sacha Baron Cohen – yes, the guy who does wild comedy as Borat – stars. Plus, Netflix debuts Tony Hale’s animated kid show, “Archibald’s Next Big Thing.” And at 8 p.m., HBO reruns Melissa McCarthy’s Oscar-nominated work in a true story, the 2018 film “Can You Ever Forgive Me?”
