1) “One Day at a Time,” 6:30-10 p.m., Pop. Here’s the entire season – what there was, before the virus shutdown – plus a bonus, a new episode via animation. First, the reruns: They start with a very clever bit, with Ray Romano as a census-taker, explaining the characters to new viewers. Then “One Day” settles into being a fairly good (albeit too broad) comedy, The new episode is at 9:30 p.m. (simulcast on TV Land) and reruns at 12:30 a.m. Guest stars include Lin-Manuel Miranda and Gloria Estefan.
2) “Mae West: Dirty Blonde,” 8-9:30 p.m., PBS. West was already 39 when she reached Hollywood, but she promptly took control. She agreed to do a small role, but rewrote her lines and grabbed attention. After that, she would write, produce and star; she soared at the box office… briefly. After five years, censorship cut into her success; after five more, she was retreating to theater and clubs. Still, it’s a fascinating story of a woman piercing the male world of movie moguls.
3) “Stargirl,” 8 p.m., CW. So far, Courtney has only one colleague in her new superhero society; now she goes after two more. One fits the usual James Dean/Luke Perry reluctant-hero cliches, but the other brings a fresh (and chatty) touch. “Stargirl” is heading in promising directions.
4) “Let It Fall: 1982-1992,” 8-10 p.m., ABC. Amid new waves of rage, TV keeps viewing the riots that consumed Los Angeles in 1992, after a not-guilty verdict for police in the Rodney King beating. Last week, PBS had Anna Deveare Smith’s one-woman play; now here’s John Ridley’s 2017 documentary – winner of DuPont and National Board of Review awards – viewing the riots and preceding events.
5) “Frontline: The Virus,” 9:30-11 p.m., PBS. Martin Smith views countries that succeeded in halting the virus and four that didn’t – China, Iran, Italy and the U.S. (The U.S. has 6.5 times as many people as South Korea, but 400 times as many COVID deaths.) He traces the slow start by China and by the World Health Organization, then the sluggish response (with a two-month warning) by the U.S.
