1) “Charmed” season-opener, 8 p.m., CW. This show could have shattered when Madeleine Mantock (who played Macy) left. Harry lost his lover, Mel and Maggie lost their sister, the “power of three” was broken. But now comes a terrific hour that seems to make the show better than ever. We meet a mechanic and graffiti artist (shown here), smart, sturdy and self-reliant. This hour wastes too much time in denial, but sweeps “Charmed” in some intriguing directions.
2) “Dynasty,” 9 p.m., CW. This may be one of the biggest mismatches since beauty-and-the-beast: The smart fantasy twists of “Charmed” are followed by a show that has preferred the noisy and the soapy. “Dynasty” had a Christmas two-parter, paused for three months, and now resumes its season. Fallon is ready to leap back into her high-stakes life; that worries Liam, who has married her twice. Also, Amanda tries to help Alexis’ case.
3) “Blue Bloods,” 10 p.m., CBS. In the 250th episode for this almost-eternal show, Frank feels guilty. After he reassigned a detective who didn’t mesh with his office, she was shot. Also, Eddie probes a case in which a man was murdered after she responded to an altercation he had with his neighbor.
4) “Turning Red,” any time, Disney+. Covid and streaming have transformed the movies. Consider: The two Pixar films prior to the pandemic each topped $1 billion worldwide; this one will skip theaters in most countries, and simply stream. This animated tale joins two other big streamers today: Ryan Reynolds time-travels in Netflix’s “The Adam Project”; Samuel L. Jackson is brilliant as a guy in dementia, in the “Last Days of Ptolemy Gray” opener on Apple TV+.
5) ALSO: The Paralympics are 8-9 p.m. on NBC, while conference basketball tournaments fill the cable schedule. Games are on USA (noon, 2:30, 6 and 8:30 p.m. ET), CBS Sports Network (12:30, 3, 5, 7:30), ESPN (noon and 2 p.m.), ESPN2 (1 and 3 p.m.), Fox Sports1 (6:30, 9 and 11:30) and more. Also “Kramer vs. Kramer” (1979) is 8 p.m. ET on Turner Classic Movies; two gifted actors, Dustin Hoffman and Meryl Streep, collide in a film that has wit, warmth and drama.
