1) “The Blacklist” season-finale, 8 p.m., NBC. For much of the year, Liz and her former mentor Red (they’re shown here in a previous season) have been after each other. Now they must work together (along with Dembe) to survive an attack from Townsend. Meanwhile, Cooper and the task force try to de-escalate the situation.
2) “Sense and Sensibility” (1995), 8 p.m., Turner Classic Movies. Yes, Emma Thompson is a terrific actress; her spectacular work in the new “Cruella” movie proves that. But she’s also a smart writer who’s created seven movies. Here, she won an Academy Award for adapting Jane Austen’s novel; she was also nominated for supporting actress. It’s a beautifully crafted, Ang Lee film that totaled seven Oscar nominations, including Kate Winslet (also in support) and best picture.
3) “American Masters,” 9 p.m., PBS. Peter Anastos was emerging as a choreographer, not a dancer. Then, he says, “I just declared myself to be a prima ballerina.” He co-created Les Ballets Trockadero de Monte Carlo, the all-male company. It’s billed as a comedy act, but the humor comes mainly in the choreography and such. “Masters” makes it clear that these men work hard at performing the female roles with grace and style, creating gender-free artistry.
4) “Cellmate Secrets” debut, 10:03 p.m., Lifetime. Angie Harmon hosts a show that talks to cellmates plus guards and former friends and lovers. That starts with Casey Anthony – after an 8 p.m. rerun of “Prosecuting Casey Anthony” (2013). Coming: Drew Peterson, Susan Smith, Joyce Mitchell and more.
5) “Lisey’s Story,” any time, Apple TV+. Stephen King was walking on a road in 1999, when a swerving truck hit him. He barely survived, then fictionalized the experience. In 2004, he adapted a mini-series into the “Kingdom Hospital” series; two years later, “Lisey’s Story” imagined a woman (played here by Julianne Moore) whose husband, a famous author, has died. Also streaming today: The third “Conjuring” film (HBO Max) and “Sweet Tooth,” with feral human/animal hybrids (Netflix).
