1) “The Blacklist,” 8 p.m., NBC. The season opened last week with dazzling twists and illusions. Red woke up in a French hospital, nearly paralyzed … or he (and we) thought that happened. It was a fake hospital (in Maryland), an elaborate ruse by the Russian spy whose existence is a secret — even to her daughter Elizabeth, who’s scrambling to find Red. Now the illusions build. At this point, Red has escaped and been re-captured. It’s a brilliant and explosive (shown here) hour, with surprises to the end.
2) “American Housewife,” 8 p.m., ABC. Diedrich Bader has a reunion of his “Drew Carey Show” colleagues. That starts with the school’s lunch lady (Kathy Kinney) refusing to make eco-friendly changes. Greg calls in an environmentalist (Ryan Stiles) and “Mr. Green” (Drew Carey).
3) “Charmed” season-opener, 8 p.m., CW. Here’s a mega-reboot. The three sisters find themselves out of their home … and their city … and their world. It’s a blur … especially when their magic and their mentor are missing. It’s a compelling start … followed, alas, by the “Dynasty” season-opener.
4) “Great Performances,” 9 p.m., PBS.George Frideric Handel’s father was a businessman and barber-surgeon who wanted his son to be a lawyer. But he also introduced the boy to music; young Handel was 11 when his father died and was 20 when he moved to Italy, a music-prodigy living with a prince. In this finale of a four-part musical travelog, Scott Yoo visits the places Handel saw in his four-year Italian journey. It’s a gorgeous hour, filled with great music in beautiful settings.
5) “El Camino: A Breaking Bad Movie,” any time, Netflix. The brilliant “Breaking Bad” series ended with Walt being killed while helping Jesse (Aaron Paul) escape; now we see what Jesse’s been up to. Also on Netflix is the second “Haunted” season, re-enacting real people’s ghost stories.
