1) No Tonys, CBS. This was supposed to be the night CBS had the Tony awards, filled with song and dance and fun. Alas, COVID put Broadway (and the Tonys) on hold. If you still want a musical, there are choices: CBS has John Travolta and Olivia Newton-John in “Grease” (1978, shown here) at 8:30 p.m., complete with singalong lyrics onscreen; FX has Hugh Jackman as “The Greatest Showman” (2017) at 8 and 10 p.m. Both have so-so stories, salvaged by vibrant music.
2) “Quiz,” 9 p.m. AMC, rerunning at 10:05. Based on a true story, this three-week gem ripples with odd bursts of humor and humanity. In last week’s opener, the British obsessed on “Who Wants to Be a Millionaire?” Diana Ingram and her brother each won 16,000 pounds; now her husband – an Army major, wonderfully played by Matthew Macfadyen – has his turn. Jauntily directed by Stephen Frears (“The Queen”), “Quiz” pulls us into an agreeable band of misfits.
3) “Celebrity Family Feud,” 8 p.m., ABC. The first game has the “Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” battling a team led by Andy Cohen … the guy who ends up hosting all those messy “Housewives” reunions. The second has Kevin Nealon and family facing Drew Carey and friends.
4) “Countdown 1945,” 10 p.m. ET, Fox News Channel, rernnning at 1 a.m. Chris Wallace, an FNC anchor, hosts an hour based on his book, which looks at the 116 days before two atomic bombs were dropped on Japan on Aug. 6, 1945. Wallace researched President Truman’s diaries and interviewed people impacted … including a woman who unknowingly helped build the bomb.
5) “I May Destroy You” debut, 10:30 p.m., HBO. After drawing praise for the British comedy “Chewing Gum,” Michaela Coel – a poet, playwright, producer and more — turns to a dead-serious subject. She plays a young woman with a sexually adventurous life … until she can’t remember one night and suspects a date-rape drug. That joins a big night for HBO. At 9 p.m. is the acclaimed “I Know This Much is True,” which concludes next Sunday; at 10 is “Insecure.”
