1) “Great Performances: Grammy Salute to Legends,” 9 p.m., PBS. Most music shows have beautifully adjusted to the pandemic … but not this one. It does have a few good moments – from Sam Moore, Yola and Brandi Carlile – and one great one – a Roberta Flack tribute, gorgeously sung by Cynthia Erivo (shown here in a previous performance) and Leslie Odom, Jr. Then things fall apart — badly written film tributes, so-so introductions and endless acceptance speeches … including separate ones from every member of Chicago.
2) “Shark Tank” season-opener, 8 p.m., ABC. Here’s a sign that ABC is assembling its regular line-up. On Sunday, Leslie Jones’ “Supermarket Sweep” debuts; next week, the comedies (including “Black-ish”) are back. Next month, it’s “Grey’s Anatomy” and friends; life will be semi-normal.
3) “Clouds,” any time, Disney+. Justin Baldoni is best known as Rafael from “Jane the Virgin,” but he’s also spent years skillfully directing films about people facing deadly diseases. That’s included documentaries (CW’s “My Last Days” series), fiction (“Five Feet Apart”) and now a scripted version of a true story. It portrays Zach Sobiech, a teen determined to make music in his final year.
4) More streaming. It’s a busy night, led by three two major documentaries – “Time” (about a woman’s 20-year fight to free her husband from prison) on Amazon Prime, “The Trial of the Chicago 7” on Netflix and “Meet the Chimps” (from National Geographic, which is very good at this) on Disney+. Also, Hulu has a Marvel action series, “Halstrom,” and Netflix has two series – “Grand Army” and the violent French “La Revolution.”
5) “The West Wing,” 9 a.m. to noon, TNT. Each Friday this month, TNT will rerun election-themed episodes, alongside get-out-the-vote messages. These three are from 2002, as Bartlet pushed his re-election campaign, squeezed from the right and (via a third-party candidate) the left. They arrive one day after HBO Max released a new special from – a restaged version of the episode that season in which the campaign focused on a tiny town that is the first to report its results.
