1) “Jeopardy,” check local listings. James Holzhauer stirred fresh interest in a show that’s been around for 55 years. He won 32 straight nights and amassed $2.46 million, close to the non-tourney record of Ken Jennings ($2.52 million, with 75 wins). Then Emma Boettcher, a young librarian, beat him; she won twice more, totaling $98,000. Now the two-week “Tournament of Champions” begins. The schedule has him on Wednesday and her on Thursday; they could collide next week.
2) “Prodigal Son,” 9:01 p.m., Fox. “Even you could not have foreseen this,” Malcolm tells his mom. No one could have, actually. This hour has a wildly tangled plot; you have to admire its creativity … while admitting it would be maybe 100-percent impossible to pull off. The story gets Malcolm and his sister in the cell with their dad, a surgeon and serial killer. Then (no surprise) there’s trouble.
3) “His Dark Materials” debut, 9 p.m, HBO. With “Game of Thrones” gone and one of its prequels nixed, HBO needs a new fantasy epic. There’s “Watchmen” on Sundays and this adaptation of Phillip Pullman novels. A near-newcomer (Dafne Keen, 14) stars as an orphan searching alternate universes, with familiar people – James McAvoy, Ruth Wilson, Lin-Manuel Miranda – in support.
4) “All Rise,” 9 p.m., CBS. Two of Lola’s friends face each other in her courtroom. It’s Emily Lopez for the defense, Mark Callan for the prosecution … and Lola’s mom as one of his witnesses.
5) “Slings & Arrows,” any time, www.acorn.tv. Between his triumph in “Kids in the Hall” and his so-so role (Glenn) on “Superstore,” Mark McKinney co-created this Canadian delight. Paul Gross (“Due South”) plays a theater star, returning to the site of his greatest triumph … and his biggest failure. This six-episode season (the first of three) is from 2003, with a young Rachel McAdams as Kate. Also reaching Acorn today are the first two seasons of “Mount Pleasant,” an OK British drama-comedy
