1) Academy of Country Music awards, 8-11 p.m., CBS. Miranda Lambert will open the show, singing “Drunk” with Elle King (they’re shown here); she’ll also link with Jack Ingram and Jon Randall for “In His Arms.” Her ex-husband Blake Shelton will celebrate the 20th anniversary of “Austin” and also do “Minimum Wage.” From three Nashville locations, others include Carrie Underwood (with gospel great CeCe Winans), Dierks Bentley, Luke Combs, Kane Brown, hosts Brad Paisley and Mickey Guyton, and many more.
2) “American Idol,” 8-10 p.m., ABC. A week before the Academy Awards, “Idol” has the 12 finalists sing Oscar-nominated songs. One of the judges, Lionel Richie, happens to be an expert on that: He’s been nominated for writing the theme songs to “Endless Love” and “The Color Purple” and won in 1986 for “Say You, Say Me” (from “White Nights”) … which he performs to open the show.
3) “Zoey’s Extraordinary Playlist,” 9 p.m., NBC. In a brilliant episode last week, Zoey had a mind mix-up, hearing people sing other people’s thoughts. She learned she hadn’t really been paying attention to many of them – especially the pain of her sister-in-law Emily, a new mom. Now she tries to help; also, her boyfriend Simon bonds with her friends Max and Mo.
4) “My Grandparents War,” 8 p.m., PBS. A key to World War II was holding off Hitler’s invasion of Russia. It was a fierce fight for Russians (more than 20 million killed) and for Allies, trying to get supplies there. Kristin Scott Thomas (an Oscar-nominee for the wartime “English Patient”) learns of her grandfather’s dangerous duties, leading the battleship that protected supply boats. It’s a well-made hour; so is “Atlantic Crossing” (9 p.m.), with Franklin Roosevelt growing fond of Princess Martha.
5) ALSO: Fresh from the much-praised start of “The Nevers” (9 p.m.), HBO adds “Mare of Easttown” (10), with Kate Winslet as a small-town cop with a big case. And with “Shameless” gone, Showtime moves the terrific “City on a Hill” to 9 p.m. At 10 and 10:30are the modestly-interesting “Couples Therapy” openers, with three real couples. And from 9-11 p.m. ET (repeating at midnight), CNN concludes “The People vs. the Klan,” with the mother of a lynched teen facing the Ku Klux Klan in court.
