1) Grammy awards, 8-11:30 p.m. ET (5-8:30 p.m. PT),, CBS. Trevor Noah hosts for the third time and Beyonce leads with nine nominations … tying her husband, Jay-Z, as all-time leaders with 88 apiece. Performers include Harry Styles, Bad Bunny, Mary J. Blige, Luke Combs, Lizzo, Sam Smith, Brandi Carlile and many more … including an all-star tribute (organized by Questlove, shown here) to the 50th anniversary of the birth of hip hop music, dance and art.
2) “All Creatures Great and Small,” 9 p.m., PBS. In its third season, this sweet-spirited drama has had some surprisingly moving moments. Two weeks ago, it flashed back to Siegfried in World War I; now it focuses on his housekeeper and her estranged son. Beautifully underplayed by Anna Madeley and Conor Deane, it’s a potent episode … as is the one next week.
3) “Miss Scarlet and the Duke,” 8 p.m., PBS. The fractured pairing of Eliza and Inspector Wellington – the Scotland Yard official know as “The Duke” — has been repaired … but only for work. He was missing from two episodes, except when she spotted him with his new romance. Now she reluctantly works with him, on a clever case that could bring her some big money.
4) “Murder in Big Horn” opener, 10 p.m., Showtime. Henny Scott, a 14-year-old athlete, went to play basketball one day, then texted her mother from what her mom considered a “party house.” She was told her to come home; her body was found two weeks later. This three-week documentary starts with that story, then lays out a disturbing pattern of missing and murdered Crow and Cheyenne girls and women, often with sluggish response from officials.
5) “Murf the Surf: Jewels, Jesus and Mayhem in the USA,” 10 p.m. and midnight, MGM+. Formerly called Epix, this cable/streaming channel makes its push. It has a James Bond marathon at 10 a.m., the praised “Godfather of Harlem” at 9 and 11 p.m. and the start of this four-part documentary, from Ron Howard. Jack Murphy was a surfing champion who led the biggest American jewel heist, was convicted of murder and became an evangelist.
