1) “CMA Best of Fest,” 8-11 p.m., ABC. Each summer, ABC turns Nashville’s CMA Fest into a terrific special. This year’s festival was canceled, but the special continues. There’s new music from Luke Bryan (shown here), who hosts, and from Darius Rucker; others will be shown in bits from 16 previous years. We’ll get newer stars (Luke Combs, Kane Brown, Kelsea Ballerini) and A-list veterans – Garth Brooks, Blake Shelton, Carrie Underwood, Brad Paisley, Miranda Lambert, Keith Urban, Brooks and Dunn and more.
2) “Bob (Hearts) Abishola,” 8:30 p.m., CBS. In a rerun, Bob states (quite accurately) that Abishola’s son doesn’t seem happy. Abishola states (just as accurately) that she doesn’t want his advice on parenting. This does no go well for them.
3) Baseball marathon, AMC. We’re still 10 days from the delayed start of the season, so AMC fills the void. First, it has movies – “Major League II” (1993) at 2:55 p.m., “Major League” (1989) at 5:30. At 8 p.m., it has the darkly funny opener of “Brockmire,” with Hank Azaria as a once-popular play-by-play guy, now in the bottom of the minors. More episodes follow, until 12:08 a.m.
4) “Ocean’s 8,” 8 p.m., TNT. After going from Frank Sinatra to George Clooney, the “Ocean’s Eleven” franchise changes sex. Sandra Bullock leads an all-woman heist team, in a film that’s sleek and slick, even if the scheme seems thoroughly unlikely. More movies? “The Good Liar” (2019, 7:05 p.m., HBO, also strains believability, but it has strong actors (Helen Mirren, Ian McKellen) and smart dialog. And at 8 p.m. ET, Turner Classic Movies has the delightful “Some Like It Hot” (1959).
5) “The Nest,” any time, www.acorn.tv. A husband and wife have it all – brains, beauty, bountiful money; then a young woman complicates things. That describes many movies – Amanda Seyfried in “Chloe,” Rebecca De Mornay in “The Hand That Rocks the Cradle,” many more. This time it’s newcomer Mirren Mack and a five-part story that gives each character depth. Nicole Taylor’s smart script gets great performances, especially from Shirley Henderson, in the final hour, as Mack’s mother.
