1) “Great Performances: Grammy Salute to Music Legends,” 9-11 p.m., PBS. “I had no idea (songs) would last this long,” Valerie Simpson (shown here) says. Or that singers would last. Simpson, 74, is in great voice; so are other honorees – Dionne Warwick, 78; and Sam Moore, 83. Songwriters Lou Adler, 85, and Johnny Mandel, 93, show up. But PBS isn’t afraid to get heavy (Rival Sons with a great Black Sabbath tribute) or funky (George Clinton). There are great bits from Garth Brooks, Jessie Mueller and more.
2) “Modern Love” debut, any time, Amazon Prime. Anthologies – once big on TV – are being revived by Prime. Last year was “Romanoffs”; now is a delightful mix of eight stories, taken from true-life essays in the New York Times. Not all involve romantic love – the first has a doorman’s fondness for a young woman; the seventh has a gay man’s feelings for his adoptive child and the birth mother. Andrew Scott and Olivia Cooke are great in that one; so is Anne Hathaway in the third, as a bipolar woman.
3) “The Blacklist,” 8 p.m., NBC. The brilliant two-part opener left two loose ends: The sly crook called Louis T. Steinhil (an anagram for “illusionist”) faked a suicide and escaped; the cunning Katarina Rostova moved into an apartment next to Liz … who doesn’t know this is her mother. Meanwhile, Aram goes undercover in a society of rich thrill-seekers who watch violence.
4) “20/20,” 9-11 p.m., ABC. Dorothy Stratten was 18 when she went from a Dairy Queen job to Hollywood; two years later, she was killed by her estranged husband. This documentary includes three Playboy Playmate friends and others, including co-star Colleen Camp, friend Max Baer Jr., and Mariel Hemingway and Eric Roberts, who played the couple in the movie “Star 80.”
5) “Living With Yourself” and “The Laundromat,” any time, Netflix. This is a big day for streamers. Prime has “Modern Love” and Netflix has a series – Paul Rudd competing with his clone in “Yourself” — and a movie. Meryl Streep plays a suspicious widow in “Laundromat,” based on a true story.
