1) “American Masters: Amy Tan: Unintended Memoir,” 9-11 p.m., PBS. Tan (shown here) was a successful business writer, working on “all the subjects I had no interest in.” She was interested in people – and had known some vivid ones. Her sweet-spirited father and brother died of brain tumors, leaving her, she said, as “a very angry girl … with this crazy, suicidal mother.” Later, fictionalizing slightly, she wrote “The Joy Luck Club”; she had a best-seller at 36, with more to follow. Here’s a fascinating proile.
2) “The Incredibles 2” (2018), 8-10:30 p.m., ABC. After stumbling in the Monday ratings, “American Idol” is being confined to Sundays only. Instead, it’s reviving the “Wonderful World of Disney” banner, for five weeks of animated movies. This one has the government scuttling its Superhero Relocation Program. Soon, Elastigirl has solo missions, with Mr. Incredible becoming a stay-at-home dad.
3) “The Voice,” 8-10 p.m., NBC. With no “Idol” on Mondays, “Voice” has the music audience to itself. Right now, it has 16 of the 17 contestants for the live shows; four people will compete next week for the last spot. For now, it pauses to view the season so far, plus the history of the show.
4) “Bob (Hearts) Abishola,” 8:30 p.m., CBS. Earlier, Abishola reluctantly agreed to let her teen son spend the summer in Nigeria with his father. As the time gets closer, she has her doubts; her mood isn’t impoved when Bob creates a “Sights and Bites” guidebook.
5) “Home Economics,” 10:30 p.m., ABC. Here’s a good chance to sample this Tuesday comedy about siblings with mismatched incomes. Conner, the rich one, gets a bounce house to cheer up his daughter; when he invites the cousins, his brother tries to prove he can be a fun uncle.
