1) “CMT Celebrates Our Heroes,” 8 p.m. Wednesday, CMT, rerunning at 10. Country stars were the first to switch to at-home music. When their April awards show was postponed, they filled a CBS special with songs from homes, porches, barns and beyond. Now they offer music plus tributes. The line-up includes Carrie Underwood, Thomas Rhett, Miranda Lambert, Darius Rucker, Kelsea Ballerini, Sam Hunt, Kristen Bell, Lauren Daigle, Brandi Carlisle, Lady Antebellum and (shown here in pre-distancing days) Little Big Town.
2) “The Baker and the Beauty” finale, 9 and 10 p.m today, ABC. Most shows have wrapped their seasons, but there are a couple finales this week. Beautifully filmed (in Atlanta and then Puerto Rico), “Beauty” flips the tale of Cinderella and a prince. Daniel is a decent chap, working in a family bakery; Noa is a pop-culture star. They met by accident, stirring a gossip flurry. Tonight, they reconnect after a falling-out. Daniel wants a normal life; his sister hopes her quinceanera can mend their parents’ rift.
3) “Legends of Tomorrow” season-finale, 9 p.m. Tuesday, CW. This is another finale, but the show will be back sometime in 2021. (“Baker and the Beauty” is unlikely to return.) When “Legends” began, superheroes breezed throcheaugh time, correcting errors. But then “The Fates” – three godlike Greek women – took over, flinging them into new worlds. Now they’re in a place similar to the novel “1984.” The team struggles first to get people’s trust and then to convince them to stand up for their rights.
4) “Quiz,” 9 p.m. Sunday, AMC, rerunning at 10:05. Here’s the mid-section of a three-Sunday mini-series that brilliantly mixes humor and drama, while relating the creation of “Who Wants to Be a Millionaire?” … and the cheating accusations that rocked the British version. The opener had glimpses of a court case, then flashed back. We saw Diana Ingram and her brother each win 16,000 pounds; now her husband, wonderfully played by Matthew Macfadyen, gets his turn. The true-life story is great fun.
5) “I May Destroy You” debut, 10:30 p.m. Sunday, HBO. Michaela Coel is a poet, playwright, producer and more. After drawing praise for the British comedy “Chewing Gum,” she turns to a dead-serious subject. Coel plays a young woman with a sexually adventurous life … until she has trouble remembering one night; suspicions of a date-rape drug follow. That joins a crowded night for HBO. At 9 p.m. is the acclaimed “I Know This Much is True,” which concludes a week later; at 10 is “Insecure.”
6) “Stargirl,” 8 p.m. Tuesday, CW. We might not expect much from summer sci-fi, but this show is surprising. It has terrific casting – particularly Luke Wilson – and intelligent production from Geoff Johns, the former creative chief of DC Comics. Last week, a battle put Brainwave in a coma. Now Courtney – a steel-willed teen who has just discovered her superpowers – wants to fight. Her stepdad (Wilson), who has a giant robot suit, preaches caution; her mom (Amy Smart) is blissfully unaware.
7) “Game On,” 8 p.m. Wednesday, CBS. Now there are three elite athletes doing silly things. The captains are greats in tennis (Venus Williams) and football (Rob Gronkowski). Gronk’s team adds Ronda Rousey, who once won six straight Ultimate Fighting Championship bouts9 in an average of under three minutes. Ehat are these skilled folks doing? They try an air-combat challenge and race up a sailing mast. They also give a teammate a bowling-ball helmet and propel him to knock down pins.
8) “Young Sheldon,” 8 p.m. Thursday, CBS. “Sheldon” jumps back to its season-opener, which showed it can be subtly serious. The previous season ended with Dr. Sturgis having a nervous breakdown; now Mary worries that her son Sheldon – who, like Sturgis, is strong of mind and fragile otherwise – might have that trouble some day. Stick around at 8:30 for “Man With a Plan,” which is a week away from its series finale. Adam (Matt LeBlanc) reluctantly tries to get his daughter ready for her driving test.
9) “A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood” (2019), 8 p.m. Friday, Starz. In difficult times, we need Fred Rogers – or this movie about him. Tom Hanks easily plays the good guy who gently presided over decades of “Mr. Rogers Neighborhood.” It’s a true story about Rogers and a cynical reporter. More movies? On Saturday, Turner Classic Movies has “D-Day: The Sixth of June” (1956) at 6 p.m. ET and “Lawrence of Arabia” (1962) – a true story that’s epic visually, yet tells a deeply human story – at 8
10) ALSO: Perpetual Gordon Ramsay. Let’s decide if there’s enough Gordon Ramsay. On Tuesday, Fox reruns his “Hell’s Kitchen” at 8 p.m. and his “24 Hours to Hell and Back” (visiting a Korean restaurant in Arkansas) at 9 …. At 8 p.m. Wednesday, it reruns his “MasterChef.” And on Saturday, National Geographic reruns the first season of “Gordon Ramsay: Uncharted” – twice. That’s from 5 p.m. to 5:31 a.m. ET; then, at 10:03 p.m. ET Sunday, a new “Uncharted” season starts, with Ramsay in Tasmania.
