1) “Great Performances,” 9-10:15 p.m., PBS. Yes, we know John Williams as the guy whose music propels “Jaws,” “Star Wars,” “Harry Potter” and many more. But he’s also a gifted conductor and classical composer. Williams, 89, conducts the debut of his 32-minute violin concerto for violinist Anne-Sophie Mutter (shown here in a previous concert). They stay for a “Star Wars” love song, then depart; the Boston Symphony carries the rest of a strong musical evening.
2) “Magnum P.I.,” 9 p.m., CBS. When an anonymous source suddenly goes silent, a journalist hires Magnum to learn what happened. Also, Higgins has a new assignment from MI-6, the British spy agency. And in a story that continues next week, Rick’s old friend visits, drawing suspiciou.
3) “Disney+ Day.” This streaming service began two years ago today, combining the power of Disney, Marvel, “Star Wars” and more. By this July, it was boasting 116 million subscribers. Now the second anniversary brings the arrival of a new Christmas movie (“Home Sweet Home Alone”), two adventure films that played in theaters (“Jungle Cruise,” “Shang-Chi”), documentaries (about Billie Eilish and about the Hawkeye character) and animated shorts, from “Simpsoms” to some “Olaf Presemts” tales.
4) “Red Notice,” any time, Netflex. While Dwayne Johnson’s “Jungle Cruise” propels Disney+, he has this film on competing Netflix. Johnson plays an FBI profiler, linking with a con man (Ryan Reynolds) to catch a master thief (Gal Gadot). That arrives two days after Netflix debuted “Passing” (two sisters in the 1920s, one passing for white) and one day after AMC+ started “Ragdoll,” a six-part crime tale from the “Killing Eve” producer. Also today, Martha Stewart judges “Table Wars,” on Discovery+.
5) More movies: Let’s assume that Dwayne Johnson is in every movie. In addition to Netflix and Disney+ tonight, he’s also in “Rampage” (2018), at 8 p.m. on TNT, with giant, mutated beasts terrorizing humans. Alternatives include Francis Coppola’s passionate teen film “The Outsiders” (1983, 8 p.m. ET, Turner Classic Movies) and “An Ice Wine Christmas” (8 p.m., Lifetime). The latter stars Roselyn Sanchez and starts a flurry of 35 new Christmas movies on Lifetime.
