1) “Now Hear This” season-opener, 9 p.m., PBS. In the first two seasons, Scott Yoo (shown here) traveled Europe, visiting places where classical masterpieces began. But this year he stays in the U.S. … and finds ample greatness. This hour traces Amy Beach, who (in 1896, at 29) was the first American woman to have a symphony published and performed. Yoo (a violinist) and his wife Alice Dade (a flutist) sample gorgeous music from Beach and other women.
2) “Malcolm X” (1992), 6-9 p.m., BET. The life of Malcolm X sprawls across enormous turf, from prison to the centers of power. Spike Lee captured it in this epic, which is strong visually and emotionally. Denzel Washington is perfect in the title role.
3) “Magnum P.I.,” 9 p.m., CBS. In the first episode of this reboot, we saw flashbacks to Magnum’s prisoner-of-war ordeal, when Nuzo saved his life. Nuzo was killed in that episode, but has shown up in several more flashbacks. Now he’s implicated in a murder; Magnum rushes to help his late friend.
4) “Blue Bloods,” 10 p.m., CBS. A Marine veteran becomes a local celebrity after saving a woman’s life; now he wants Frank to let him join the police department, despite being over the age limit. Also, Danny races to find an abducted child and his sister Erin looks into what may be a wrongful conviction.
5) “Cry Macho” (2021), 6:10 p.m., HBO; “Unforgiven” (1992), 8 p.m., AMC. It’s a Clint Eastwood double-feature. First, a recent film, with Eastwood, 91, asked to bring a man’s son home from Mexico. Then Eastwood at his peak, as a former gunman with a final mission. It won four Oscars (including best picture and Eastwood as director) and was nominated for five more, including Eastwood as best actor.
