1) Grammy awards, 8-11 p.m. ET Sunday, CBS. Alicia Keys (shown here) hosts a night filled with music stars. Ariana Grande and Demi Lovarto will be singing; so will Blake Shelton and Gwen Stefani. Bonnie Raitt will perform a tribute to Lifetime Achievement Award-winner John Prine; another lifetime award-winner, Run-D.M.C., will perform with Aerosmith. There’s much more, including Camilla Cabello, the Jonas Brothers, Billie Eilish, Lizzo, H.E.R., Charlie Wilson, Rosa, Lizzo, Tyler the Creator and late additions.
2) “Station 19” season opener, 8 p.m. Thursday, ABC. The season starts big, with a car crashing into a bar. There are medical people (Ben and Pruitt) trapped inside and others (Andy and Sullivan) struggling to get there. As workmen try to crash through the wall, doctors can merely slip in some supplies and some advice. Then there are the people in the car, teetering toward death. It’s a strong, emotional episode that crosses over to “Grey’s Anatomy.” The shows share a producer. With more mixes expected
3) “A Million Little Things” return, 10 p.m. Thursday, ABC. As soon as the “Station/Grey’s” crossover ends, ABC offers another dose of drama intensity. It’s been three months since Eddie and Delilah admitted the affair that shattered friends and family. Some relationships are mending, some are crumblling; Sophie, Delilah’s teen daughter, is barely speaking to her. But now the focus shifts to young Danny, who must kiss a girl in “Grease,” while he longs for a romance with a boy in the show.
4) “9-1-1: Lone Star” 8 p.m. today, Fox. In Sunday’s opener, we met Owen (Rob Lowe), a captain who had to rebuild his firehouse staff after Sept. 11. Now he’s been brought to Austin, Texas, where an explosion killed most of the station’s firefighters. With his son – fresh from a break-up with a boyfriend – he’s creating something new, alongside EMT’s led by Michelle (Liv Tyler). As the show settles into its regular night, there’s a wave-pool tragedy and mercury poison that leaves zombie-like victims.
5) “Project Blue Book” season-opener, 10:03 p.m. Tuesday, History. In the first season, this ratings hit saw an Ohio State professor link with an Air Force Captain in the 1950s, to probe UFO’s. That season’s final three episodes rerun from 7-10 a.m. Tuesday, followed by six hours of UFO documentaries. The new season starts in 1953, as the Cold War tightens. A townsperson from Roswell, New Mexico, threatens to tell about a crash there, six years earlier. Starting a two-parter, the men rush tor Roswell.
6) “Expedition With Steve Backshall,” 10 p.m. Wednesday, PBS. The world noticed Greenland when word came that Donald Trump wanted to buy it. Reporters (and Conan O’Brien) visited the island, which has lots of ice and few (56,000) people. It’s also a lotgcal stop for Backshall, whose show takes him on global adventures. This week, he tries the unpopulated part of Greenland – which is most of it. In the Arctic’s most volatile time, the spring melt, he tries to kayak across the world’s largest fjord.
7) “Awkwafina is Nora from Queens,” 10:30 p.m. Wednesday, Comedy Central. In real life, Nora Lum grew up in Queens; her roots are Chinese on one side (her dad), Korean on the other (her mom, who died when she was 4). She studied classical music in high school and journalism in college, but became an outspoken rapper/actress named Awkwafina. There were viral videos, hit movies (“Crazy Rich Asians,” Ocean’s 8”), an Oscar nomination for “The Farewell” … and now a series, loosely based on her life.
8) “Outmatched” debut, 8:30 p.m Thursday, Fox. Many people hope to have smart kids, but here’s too much of a good thing: Three of the four kids are geniuses; one is refreshingly average. The house is awash in charts and labs; the parents (Jason Biggs and Maggie Lawson) are overwhelmed. Like its lead-in (“Last Man Standing”), “Outmatched” is a pleasant show, without being more. It adds to a night of comedy overflow – four shows on CBS, four on NBC, two on Fox and “Grown-ish” on Freeform.
9) “Blue Bloods,” 10 p.m., Thursday, CBS. Shows are at their best at the start and end of a season. So here – wrapping up the second straight Friday of CBS reruns – is the episode that opened the 10th season: Frank (Tom Selleck), the police commissioner, tries to help a former police partner whose daughter was arrested. Meanwhile, his own sons have missions: Danny and his partner are probing a year-old murder case; Jamie and Eddie (his wife and former police partner) look for a new apartment.
10) “Saturday Night Live,” 11:29 p.m., NBC. The past calendar year brought “SNL” some of its best shows – two by returning stars (Adam Sandler and Eddie Murphy) and one by newcomer Phoebe Waller-Bridge. Then “SNL” had five weeks of reruns; now the first new episode of 2020 has Adam Driver – fresh from his second Oscar nomination and his second “Star Wars” film – hosting for the third time. Halsey is the music guest; a year ago, when she also hosted, she had spectacular numbers.
