1) “Dynasty,” 9 p.m., CW. After a six-week break, the show is back and Blake (Grant Show) resumes his trial. Naturally, his ex-wife Alexis (Elaine Hendrix, shown here) shocks people. She jolts the jury with her testimony and jolts her daughter Fallon with her latest marriage.
2) “Charmed,” 8 p.m., CW. Here’s another show that’s back from a six-week break. Maggie and Mel have a startling discovery that changes their world. Also, Eric Balfour begins a guest sting; he’s a SafeSpace investor who has a chance and with Macy.
3) “Country Music,” 9-11 p.m., PBS. The third chapter begins as World War II ends, with new sounds emerging. Bill Monroe was still a teen-ager when he moved to northern Indiana, near Chicago. He worked by day, made music by night and named his group The Bluegrass Boys; a style of music was born. Meanwhile, honky-tonk music emerged in the bars … and Hank Williams showed country sounds could merge with deep lyrfics and strong passion; he would be dubbed “the hillbilly Shakespeare.”
4) “Magnum P.I.,” 9 p.m., CBS. On a dating app, Magnum poses as a rich doctor. Maybe everybody does, but he has a reason: He’s trying to catch womeone who preys on rich guys. That’s in a night of CBS reruns. “Hawaii Five-0” (8p.m.) sees a hurricane bash the island; “Blue Bloods” (10 p.m.) sees Frank order a raid on an apartment building where police are being harassed.
5) “Hopelessly in Love,” all night, Lifetime. Love seems precarious in these true stories – Lisa “Left Eye” Lopes and Andre Rison at 5 pm., Faith Evans and the Notorious B.I.G. at 7, a new film on Anna Nicole Smith and Larry Birkhead at 9 and 11:03. To add to the cynicism, Turner Classic Movies has “Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf” (1966), with Richard Burton and Elizabeth Taylor doing blistering work as husband and wife.
