1) “Station 19” and “Grey’s Anatomy” season-openers, 8 and 9 p.m., ABC. It’s a crossover night, starting with personal problems at the firehouse. Just as Maya was marrying Carina (shown here) at the end of last season, she learned she’d been fired as captain; Andy blamed her own husband, Sullivan. Those issues and others are interrupted by crises at a festival. That takes us to the hospital, with its own woes. Bailey has trouble hiring doctors; Meredith, whose late mother lingers in her mind, meets a guy who knew her.
2) “Big Sky” season-opener, 10 p.m., ABC. It’s a high-octane start, right where the first season ended. Jenny was shot, Ronald escaped and Cassie grabs a squad car and roars in pursuit. When things settle down, the new season offers two stories: One is old (Ronald, alas), but the other is fresh and involving – the always-interesting notion of regular souls stumbling onto something huge and scary.
3) “The Price is Right 50th Anniversary Special,” 9-11 p.m., CBS. As this title tells you, “The Price is Right” is … well, 65 years old. Or 49. Or somewhere in between. It debuted in 1956 in NBC daytime, then moved to NBC primetime, ABC daytime, ABC primetime and to CBS daytime, where it’s been ever since. It arrived on Sept. 4, 1972 and has been there 49 years — making this the 50th season.
4) “The Big Leap” and “Our Kind of People,” 8 and 9 p.m. Fox. Rerunning the openers of two pilot films, Fox requires viewers to take a big leap from solid-enough drama to soapy excess. “Leap” offers a fictional dance show that will conclude with the “Swan Lake” ballet; the concept is flawed, but the people are worth rooting for. Then “People” takes us to a rich Martha’s Vineyard area, where the characters are quickly consumed by soap-opera cliches.
5) “Cake” season-opener, 10 p.m., FXX, rerunning at 10:36 and 11:12. When the pandemic was shutting down much of show business, this odd-bits series went into overdrive. Originally a mixture of animated and live-action shorts, it went all-animation; this is its third season in the past 14 months. Some bits bring laughs; others merely bring a “whaaaat!?!” But the longest (with several segments in the opener) is drolly clever, based on Reza Paramund’s web comic,”Poorly Drawn Lines.”
