1) “The Blacklist,” 8 p.m., NBC. After giving us exactly two episodes, “Blacklist” took a two-month break. At least, those two had some big moments – peaking with Red killing Liz’s mother, before she could reveal Red’s murky secrets to Liz. Now Liz is not happy; the former friendship (shown here in an earlier episode) has shattered.
2) “MacGyver,” 8 p.m., CBS. Here’s a variation on the “Rear Window” notion of a homebound guy who feels he’s spotted a murder in a neighboring apartment: Mac, Bozer and Riley are together on COVID quarantine, when they try to stop a crime in a neighbor’s house.
3) “In Concert at the Hollywood Bowl,” 9 p.m., PBS. Back in 1924, when many concert sites were segregated, the Bowl had its first Mexican-themed night. It has continued that emphasis for almost a century; now we see splendid examples from recent years. There’s a sensational guitar duo (Rodrigo y Gabriela), a great singer (Natalia Lafourcade) and more. They’re backed by the Los Angeles Philharmonic, led by Gustavo Dudamel, whose father was a salsa-band trombonist in Venezuela.
4) “Great Performances,” 10 p.m., PBS. There were many roadblocks to Vladimir Horowitz’s 1986 concert in Moscow. He was 82 … hadn’t performed in two years … hadn’t been in his native Russia for 60 years … and had steep demands: His Steinway must be flown from the U.S. (with Marine guard); fresh asparagus must be flown from Rome. The concert was seen as crucial to thawing the Cold War; this documentary has ample footage of it, alongside comments by current musicians.
5) “The Sister,” any time, Hulu. Russell Tovey keeps sliding skillfully between big-audience efforts (“Quantico,” “Being Human”) and classy dramas (PBS’ “Flesh and Blood,” HBO’s “Looking,” the movie “The Good Liar”). Now this movie has him play a guy who’s been holding a secret for a decade. Also streaming today are series: “Fate: The Winx Saga” (adapting a Nickelodeon cartoon into live-action) on Netflix and the Israeli drama “Losing Alice” on Apple TV+.
