1) “The Morning Show,” any time, Apple TV+. A new streaming service is born – with an even newer (and bigger) one looming. Unlike other streamers, Apple doesn’t have a backlog of classic shows. What it has, however, is starpower. “Morning Show” has Jennifer Aniston, Reese Witherspoon and Steve Carell. Another series — “For All Mankind,” imagining an accelerated NASA – is from Ronald Moore, the “Outlander” and “Battlestar: Galactica” producer. And Disney’s streamer will follow on Nov. 12.
2) More streaming, Netflix. With all those newcomers coming, Netflix loads up on shows of all sorts. It has a movie (“The King,” with a 15th-century prince thrust into power), a documentary (“Fire in Paradise,” about the California wildfire), a drama (“American Son,” the Broadway show with Kerry Washington and Steven Pasquale) and a new batch of four “Queer Eye” specials, in Japan.
3) “Great Performances: 42nd Street,” 9-11:30 p.m., PBS. Here’s the start of something special — five Fridays of Broadway-style shows. Coming up are two more musicals (“The King and I” next week and “Kinky Boots” on Nov. 29), sandwiching two plays, “Red” and “Much Ado About Nothing.”) All of that starts on the silly side; “42nd Street: has peppy songs (“We’re in the Money,” “Lullaby of Broadway,” the title tune), great dancing … and an empty-headed story of a chorus-girl-turned-star.
4) “The Blacklist,” 8 p.m., NBC. Liz probes a villain who usually weaponizes diseases … but now may be into something even worse. Meanwhile, Red’s investigation takes him to Cuba.
5) “Magnum P.I.,” 9 p.m., CBS. Magnum’s girlfriend, a lawyer, has a dilemma: She now realizes the client she successfully defended was guilty. The episode includes four “Hawaii Five-0” actors – Kimmee Balmilero, Taylor Wily, Shawn Mauahi Garnett and William Forsythe.
