1) “Great Performances: Gloria – A Life,” 9-11 p.m., PBS (check local listings). It’s been a big life, actually. Once a Toledo kid dreaming of being a Rockette, Gloria Steinem helped alter the possibilities for American women. Christine Lahti (shown here) portrays her, with six actresses taking all the other roles. It’s a good (if flawed) show that ends with a twist: Steinem, strong and sharp at 86, arrives. She takes comments from people in the audience … many of them witnesses to a world she transformed.
2) Daytime Emmy Awards, 8-10 p.m., CBS. For the first time in nine years, the daytime awards get a broadcast-network spot. That’s hosted by the five women from “The Talk”; their show is nominated, facing the Ellen DeGeneres and Kelly Clarkson shows, plus “GMA3” and “Live With Kelly & Ryan.” It’s a virtual ceremony that will jump to the homes of winners, from soap actors to game-show hosts – a field that has Alex Trebek facing Steve Harvey, Wayne Brady, Pat Sajak and Alfonso Ribeiro.
3) “World of Dance,” 8 p.m., NBC. Here’s a quick rerun of Tuesday’s episode. It’s callback time, with 10 groups returning, competing for the four remaining spots. The bad news is that there’s a sameness to the styles and approaches; the good news is everything else – gifted dancers, smart judges, good hour.
4) “Blue Bloods,” 10 p.mn., CBS. This was the opener for this 10th season – and the 200th episode overall. While the police commissioner (Tom Selleck) tries to help a friend (Treat Williams), his kids are busy. Danny probes a year-old murder case, Jamie goes apartment-hunting and Erin faces a fierce defense attorney from her past.
5) “The Story of Fire Saga,” any time, Netflix. Back in 2007, Will Ferrell was an odd figure-skater in “Blades of Glory.” Now he and Rachel McAdams play an Icelandic duo, hoping to win the Eurovision music contest. More music-based films? Hulu has just added “Once Were Brothers: Robbie Robertson and the Band”; and at 7:40 p.m., HBO has “Bohemian Rhapsody,” a delight that was nominated for five Oscars (including best picture) and won four including best actor, Rami Malek as Freddie Mercury.
