1) “Magnum P.I.,” 9 p.m., CBS. After waiting on the shelf for 10 weeks, this show is finally back. “Hawaii Five-0” has ended its 10-year run; now “Magnum” gets the timeslot … and the state of Hawaii. Tonight, Kumu (Amy Hill) is kidnapped by a man accused of killing his wife; Magnum and Higgins (shown here) try to rescue her.
2) “The Wizard of Oz” (1939), 8 p.m. ET, Turner Classic Movies. This is just what we need in tough times – or in any time – a movie with childlike magic, grown-up intelligence and great songs. “Oz” is No. 10 on the American Film Institute’s all-time list; a documentary about it is at 7. If you prefer James Bond, HBO has Daniel Craig films at 5:45 and 8 p.m.; Epix has previous ones all day.
3) “The Blacklist,” 8 p.m., NBC. Aram, the team’s technical whiz, needs Red’s help. He’s been dating Elodie, but now he wants to learn what really happened to her husband. Meanwhile, another case – a disappearance in the “Alaska Triangle” – becomes personal for Agent Alina Park.
4) Eastertime movies, cable. “The Passion of the Christ,” the intense film directed by Mel Gibson, drew crowds and controversy when it debuted in 2014. Now it’s at 9 and 11 p.m. ET on UpTV, preceded by “Noah’s Ark” at 7 p.m. ET. Also on this Good Friday, Lifetime has “Joyful Noise” at 5; an OK story is boosted by rousing gospel music from Dolly Parton, Queen Latifah and more. That’s followed by “Miracles From Heaven” at 8 and “Faith Under Fire” at 10:33, repeating them at midnight and 2:34 a.m.
5) And streaming. This wraps up a huge week for streaming. On Monday, Quibi debuted, offering big-money productions in 10-minute chunks; also, Acorn offered the beautifully crafted (but depressing) “Deadwater Fell.” On Wednesday, Hulu added “Parasite,” the offbeat and entertaining Korean film (with English sub-titles) that won the best-picture Oscar. On Thursday, CBS All Access launched a new “Good Fight” season. And today, Netflix has the comedy series “Brews Brothers.”
