1) “A Wild Year on Earth,” 8 p.m., BBC America. This third episode begins in May, amid fierce changes. North America is in its tornado season, Indonesia starts four months of monsoon rain (up to 30 inches in a day) and South Africa goes dry. We get awesome wildlife footage, from tree frogs in Sri Lanka to mustangs (shown here, but not in a scene from the film) in the U.S., plus cuttlefish, with their grabby, eight-armed lust. There are stunning scenes, including humans celebrating the summer solstice at Stonehenge and beyond.
2) “Superbowl of Gospel,” 8 p.m., BET. It’s the 22nd year for this event, which includes football stars – the NFL Players Chorus sings and Texans quarterback Deshaun Watson gets a Faith in Action award – and gospel greats. Performers include Kierra Sheard, John P. Kee, Erica Williams and many more.
3) “NFL Honors,” 9-11 p.m., CBS. For the third straight year, Steve Harvey hosts the event that honors pro-football’s best. This time, however, it will all be done virtually. There’s the most valuable player award, alongside ones for (not counting the MVP) the most valuable offensive and defensive players. There’s also rookie of the year, coach of the year and many more, including the Hall of Fame. This year’s first-time Hall nominees include Peyton Manning and Charles Woodson.
4) “OWN Spotlight: Cicely Tyson,” 10 p.m., Oprah Winfrey Network. Tyson, who died Jan. 28 at 96, was one of the all-time great actresses. In addition to career awards, she won a Tony, was nominated for an Oscar and received 16 Emmy nominations, winning three times. From the movie “Sounder” to TV’s “Roots” and “The Autobiography of Miss Jane Pittman,” her performances were classics. Here’s an interview, not previously aired, which Winfrey did in 2012, for a “Roots” retrospective.
5) “Saturday Night Live,” 11:29 p.m., NBC. Dan Levy – the key force in writing, producing and acting in “Schitt’s Creek” – has his first turn as host. Phoebe Bridgers is the music guest.
