1) Basketball finals, 9 p.m. ET, ABC. For the next couple weeks, the pros will dominate ABC and beyond. That starts with the Golden State Warriors (shown here) hosting the Boston Celtics. It happens again Sunday, then moves to Boston on June 8 and 10. The other games, if necessary, are June 13, 16 and 19. Games are at 9 p.m. ET (except 8 p.m. Sundays). The preceding hour (today, that’s 8 and 8:30 pm.) has a Jimmy Kimmel special and a pre-game show.
2) Royal coverage. It was 69 years ago today that viewers watched the coronation of Queen Elizabeth. (She became queen 70 years and four months ago and has outlasted Victoria by seven years.) Now the Platinum Jubilee begins. A parade is 6 a.m. ET today, with the queen and kin on the balcony; a concert is Saturday night. For most of that, viewers will need to catch news channels or links to the BBC telecasts in England. Also, the True Royalty TV streamer has a documentary, “The Queen Unseen.”
3) “Her Majesty the Queen,” 10 p.m., CBS. As the first day of the Jubilee wraps up, Gayle King will host this special. She plans to have highlights from the 200-horse, 400-musician parade. She’ll talk to royalty experts Tina Brown and Wesley Kerr, and to Paul McCartney. The queen knighted him in 1997 and he sang a new song to her in 2012; he’s seen her often enough, he said, that he once told her:“We have to stop meeting like this.”
4) “B Positive” return, 9:30 p.m., CBS. One of TV’s great comedy performances has been mostly overlooked. On Broadway, Annaleigh Ashford is already a star, with a Tony award in a play and a nomination in a musical. But her brilliant work here as Gina – bright, sweet, well-meaning, a tad daft – was ignored in the first season; in the second, the show was canceled. After three months on the shelf, it returns for reruns. Peter (Ben Vereen) is one of the residents; now his son is Gina’s lawyer … and asks her for a date.
5) ALSO: Tonight was supposed to bring the season-opener of “Coroner,” a solid Canadian drama. Instead, CW has moved the show to fall; “Legacies,” with only three episodes left in its final season, airs at 9 p.m. Also, “MasterChef Junior” has a double edition, at 8 and 9 p.m. on Fox. And a cowboy classic – the witty “Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid” (1969) – is at 8 p.m. ET on Turner Classic Movies.
