1) “Erin Brockovich” (2000), 8 p.m., Pop. This is clearly a night to watch Julia Roberts, with three strong choices, at 8 p.m. The best is “Brockovich,” the true story of an office assistant who used brains and people-skills to confront a giant power company; Roberts (shown here with Albert Finney) won an Oscar and there were four more nominations, including best picture. In TNT’s “Ocean’s Eleven” (2001), she’s the ex-wife of a heist master (George Clooney); in the Movie Channel’s “Eat Pray Love” (2010), she tries mid-life changes.
2) “In Concert at the Hollywood Bowl” opener, 9 p.m., PBS. For the first time in 98 years, the Bowl didn’t have any summer concerts. Fortunately, it taped many of the previous ones; now a six-week series begins. The opener focuses on Broadway and movie music, wioth four great voices – Audra McDonald, Kristen Chenoweth, Sutton Foster and Brian Stokes Mitchell. An interlude of conversation adds nothing, but the rest is musical magic.
3) “Great Performances,” 10 p.m., PBS. To many people, Maria Callas was known for her romances (including Aristotle Onassis) and her temper. But to opera fans, she was the soprano superstar; when she set a comeback performance of “Tosca,” people camped out five days for tickets. This fairly interesting hour has part of the performance, intercut with comments from current singers and directors.
4) “Magnum P.I.,” 9 p.m., CBS. As a major hurricane hits the island, Magnum and friends duck inside the La Mariana bar. There are problems there – including two armed killers, plus Rick’s confession to T.C. Also: Roger E. Mosley, 82, who was TC in the original series, has his second episode as Booky.
5) “WandaVision,” any time, Disney+. In Marvel’s “Avengers” movies, Wanda Maximoff (Elizabeth Olsen) has been able to manipulate reality. Now, in her life after “Endgame,” she’s settled into suburbia with Vision (Paul Bettany) … until things start changing in odd ways. The first two episodes arrive today, with the other seven being weekly. Also streaming: Netflix has the third season of Matt Groening’s “Disenchantment”; on Thursday, HBO Max started the fourth season of “Search Party.”
