1) “Country Music,” 8 p.m. Sunday, PBS, rerunning at 10. Here is Ken Burns at his best – the start of an eight-night documentary that has depth, detail, great music and rich waves of humanity. Dayton Duncan wrote superb narration, supplemented by smart talking-head commentary – especially from Marty Stuart, Dolly Parton and the late Merle Haggard. The opener starts with the 1927 recording sessions that discovered Jimmie Rodgers and the Carter family (shown here), then sees the Grand Ole Opry begin.
2) Bradys and “BH90210,” 9 p.m. today (HGTV) and Wednesday (Fox). What decade is this, anyway? We revisit shows that were youth favorites back in 1969 and ’90. HGTV bought the house that was used for the “Brady Bunch” exteriors; its experts will link with the six actors who played Brady kids, to give the house a mega-revamp. Then “BH90210” gives us the “Beverly Hills 90210” stars, playing fictional versions of themselves. The season-finale sees personal crises, as they await news on their reboot pilot.
3) “Bring the Funny” finale, 10:01 p.m. Tuesday, NBC. The summer reality shows are wrapping up. Many are still a week from choosing a winner, but “Funny” is ready now. It started with 40 acts – stand-up comedians, sketch groups and offbeat “variety acts.” Now it has a final five going for $250,000. One is a “save,” decided by viewers’ vote; the others are two stand-ups (Ali Siddiq, Taccara Williams), plus a sketch act (The Chris & Paul Show) and a musical singing trio called Lewberger.
4) “America’s Got Talent,” 8 p.m. Tuesday and Wednesday, NBC. Last week, this ratings leader chose five acts for its finale; now it chooses the other five. Competing are singers Emanne Beasha, Luke Islam and Chris Klafford, two vocal groups (Detroit Youth Choir, Voices of Service) and guitarist Marcin Patrzale. Also, there’s a comedian (Ryan Niemiller), an impressionist (Carmen Carter), a magician (Dom Chambers), acrobatic dancers (V. Unbeatable) and a blacklight painter (Alex Dowis).
5) More reality shows. Yes, there’s more: “Songland” has its finale at 9:01 p.m. Wednesday, with songwriters pitching to Ryan Tedder of OneRepublic. ABC’s “Bachelor in Paradise” and CBS’ “Big Brother” continue. And three competitions have their second-to-last weeks: At 8 p.m. today, Fox’s “So You Think You Can Dance” has its final four dancers and NBC’s “American Ninja Warrior” has 28 finalists try the second phase; at 8 p.m. Wednesday on Fox, the “MasterChef” final four are in London.
6) Debate, 8-11 p.m. ET, ABC and Univision, Then there’s the ultimate competition, grasping for the Democratic presidential nomination. For this debate, a field that once had 26 candidates has been trimmed to 10, partly by requiring a quantity of donors. Front-runners Joe Biden, Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren will be there and others will have a better chance to be heard. They are Cory Booker, Pete Buttigieg, Julian Castro, Kamala Harris, Amy Klobuchar, Beto O’Rourke and Andrew Yang.
7) “Grand Hotel” finale, 10:01 p.m. today, ABC. Throughout the summer, we’ve seen beautiful people with ugly problems, in the gorgeous setting of a Miami hotel. Now it all peaks: Danny finally reveals his true identity. Working undercover at the hotel, he’s been trying to see what happened to his sister Sky; we learn what happened to her. And Santiago (Demian Bichir) has been clinging to his hotel, while facing steep debts to mobsters. He gets life-changing news from “Mrs. P,” the head of the staff.
8) “CBS Fall Preview,” 9 p.m., CBS. While summer shows wind down, we can peek a what CBS has for fall. The new dramas are opposites — “All Rise” is a bright and zesty show about a new judge; “Evil” is a gloomy search for … well, evil. The three comedies also cover broad ground: “Bob (hearts) Abishola” is a low-key and charming romance. “The Unicorn” is a frenetic (and quite funny) look at a widower tenuously entering the dating pool. “Carol’s Second Act” is so-so, despite Patricia Heaton.
9) “American Experience” and “American Masters,” 9 p.m. Tuesday and Friday, PBS. First is a revisionist view of the Hatfield-McCoy feud. Brushing aside hillbilly cliches, it eyes the effect of big-city bias and business greed. Then is a portrait of Raul Julia, who arrived from Puerto Rico at 24, ready for Shakespeare and Broadway and talk shows and more. Before his death (at 54, of a stroke after intestinal troubles) he ranged from “Addams Family” movies to praised roles as Latino activists.
10) “On Becoming a God in Central Floridda,” 10 p.m., Showtime. For almost three episodes, all hope was scuttled: Krystal (Kirsten Dunst) was widowed and swamped with pyramid-scheme debt; Ernie (the superb Mel Rodriguez), her boss, wanted to help, but didn’t know how. Last Sunday ended with a breakthrough, as her “splashercize” class soared. Now the darkness descends anew, followed by fresh hope … and the realization that this takes advantage of troubled people. It’s tough, but well-crafted.
