1) “Little Women” (shown here), 8-11 p.m., PBS. Yes, the 2019 movie was masterful. Still, this 2018 mini-series is also first-rate. Given more time (but not more money), it has Louisa May Alcott’s special blend of unapologetic warmth and sentiment, alongside sibling rage and worldly ambition. Newcomer Maya Hawke (daughter of Ethan Hawke and Uma Thurman) is a superb Jo, in a tradition from Katharine Hepburn in 1933 to Saoirse Ronan in 2019. Emily Watson and Angela Lansbury offer fine support.
2) “Zoey’s Extraordinary Playlist,” 9 p.m., NBC. This show is in a category by itself. Its plots are often deeply flawed – especially tonight, holding the Zoey/Max relationship in eternal limbo. But the magic is in the songs that Zoey imagines … and in the cast, led by Jane Levy and Skylar Astin … and in the glowing palette, making this possibly the prettiest TV show ever.
3) More music, everywhere. “American Idol” (8-10 p.m., ABC) continues “Hollywood Week”; it will be duets today and solos Monday. Music is a bonus in “Frozen” (2013, 7:25 p.m., Freeform) an animated gem with great songs. And it redeems “The Greatest Showman” (2017, 8 and 10 p.m., FX), which has rousing music and a wildly idealized vision of P.T. Barnum.
4) “Black Monday,” 10 p.m., Showtime. The plan called for two new half-hours each Sunday, but Showtine trimmed to one-a-week, because of virus-related problems. That’s OK, because this episode is self-contained, with a big, bloody ending. Mo is on the lam in Miami, but Dawn found him and gave him $800,000 for his share of their Wall Street firm. Meanwhile, Keith owes the cartel $1 million.
5) “America vs. Virus,” 10 p.m. ET, Fox News. Harris Faulkner anchors, with experts including Dr. Marc Siegel and Dr. Nicole Saphier. They talk about the major outbreaks in the past 200 years and a worst-case scenario for the current one; they also discuss what people can do to help stop it.
