1) “Power Book II: Ghost” debut, 9 p.m., Starz. The “Power” series was a ratings winner for Starz – tough, taut and often lethal. Even the main character – a drug boss known as Ghost – was killed; his son Tariq did it, but Ghost’s wife Tasha was charged. Now Tariq is in college (shown here), stretching for ways to make money and get his mom free. Meanwhile, there’s a new drug boss, played by Mary J. Blige.

And there’s baseball – the Brewers and Indians at 1 p.m. on ESPN2, the Cubs and Cardinals at 7 on ESPN.
3) “I Am Geraldo,” 10 p.m., Fox News Channel. As a reporter for WABC-TV in1970, Geraldo Rivera stood out instantly. He was a long-haired lawyer, half-Puerto Rica, half-Jewish, with a hip manner. He soon had a Peabody Award and latenight ABC specials. The years that followed have included war-reporting, four divorces, “Dancing With the Stars” and more. Rivera, who turned 77 on July 4, continues at FNC; this special looks at 50 years of reporting. A longer version streams on Fox Nation.
