1)“Snowfall,” 10 p.m., FX, rerunning to 11:05 p.m. and 12:15 and 1:20 a.m. At a perilous point in its story, “Snowfall” pauses for an odd interlude. Last week, Jerome finally proposed to Louise … who secretly ordered a hit that could set off gang warfare. Trouble looms … but first, there’s an odd twist at the wedding. Some viewers will love it, some won’t, but it has great performances – especially by Damson Idris (shown here in a previous episode), whose character (Franklin) is usually stoic.
2) “Nature,” 8 p.m., PBS. Reality and artifice merge seamlessly. Using footage of various hippos – they do all sort of look alike – this claims to follow 35 years of one life, from birth to decline. Some parts get quite nasty; humans, it seems, didn’t invent toxic masculinity. Others are fascinating, including the oxpeckers that perpetually live and feast on hippos … and “sausage trees” that drop sausage-shaped fruit in the midst of a drought.
3) “Chicago P.D.,” 10 p.m., NBC. Driven to desperation by the kidnapping of a friend’s daughter, Ruzek goes undercover inside a dangerous drug group. That damages his fragile relationship with Burgess.
4) “A Million Little Things,” 10 p.m., ABC. After a one-week break, this returns with Maggie and Gary finally back together. Meanwhile, Regina’s parents get back together to help her business. Also, Greta and Katherine catch their high school reunion; Rome’s documentary makes an impression on students.
5) “Moneyball” (2011), 8 p.m., AMC. On the eve of baseball’s season-opener, here’s a terrific movie about the sport. Aaron Sorkin adapted a non-fiction book about Oakland A’s general manager Billy Beane (Brad Pitt). Working with a small-market budget, Beane nudged the A’s into being a contender.
