1) Magnum P.I.” 9 p.m., CBS. After reruns last Friday, CBS is back to new hours. That includes “S.W.A.T.” – staying here, after CBS scuttled a plan to move it to Sundays — at 8 p.m. and “Blue Bloods” at 10. And it includes this episode, with a tricky twist: People usually hire a private eye when a marriage goes bad; now a guy wants his bride-to-be (shown here, right, with Higgins) investigated before the wedding.
2) “The Oratorio” and “Da Ponte’s Oratorio,” 9 and 10 p.m., PBS (check local listings). Lorenzo De Ponte’s life sprawled afar. He was a Catholic priest who fathered six children, hung with Casanova and was expelled from Vienna. He was the librettist for Mozart’s three top operas. He was a grocer. And in 1826, he produced New York’s first operatic concert. That church still stands and its former choir boy, Martin Scorsese, narrates this film. In the second hour, we see the 2018 re-creation of the concert.
3) “Dickinson,” any time, Apple TV+. The third and final season begins amid the enduring agony of the Civil War. In the first episode (one of three arriving today), Emily Dickinson sees death, rage, adultery, alcoholism and impending spinsterhood. (She was in her early 30s then, beautifully played here by Hailee Steinfeld, 24.) And through it all, there are great bursts of sharp, dark humor.
4) More streaming. Tom Hanks is on his own again. In “Cast Away,” he was mostly stranded with his soccer ball; in “Finch” (arriving today on Apple TV+), he’s alone with his dog and the robot he built. Also streaming today is “The Unlikely Murderer,” a Swedish mini-series based on a theory about the real-life, 1986 killing of the prime minister. That’s on Netflix, which this week added “The Harder They Fall,” pitting Idris Elba and Jonathan Majors in cowboy days.
5) ALSO: After a week when the World Series bumped it over to cable, wrestling is back on Fox. That’s 8 p.m.; against moderate sports competition – pro basketball on ESPN (Knicks-Bucks at 7:30 p.m. ET, New Orleans-Golden State at 10) and college football. It’s Virginia Tech and Boston at 7:30 p.m. ET on ESPN2,then Utah and Stanford at 10:30 on Fox Sports1.
