1) “Gone With the Wind” (1939) and “Casablanca” (1942), 4 and 8 p.m. ET, Turner Classic Movies. A week from the Academy Awards, TCM fills its line-up with great films. That peaks here, “Wind” is ranked No. 6 on the American Film Institute’s best-film list; “Casablanca” (shown here, with Dooley Wilson and Humphrey Bogart) is No. 3. They’re sandwiched by the epic “Doctor Zhivago” (1965) at 12:30 p.m. and “The Way We Were” (1973), a lushly emotional Streisand/Redford film, at 10.
2) More movies. If you prefer more-recent films, there are good ones. At 7 p.m., the Disney Channel has the non-cartoon “Beauty and the Beast” (2017); at 8, TNT has the mega-movie “Black Panther” (2018). Also, CMT has a Chevy Chase marathon: “Vacation” (1983) and “European Vacation” (1985) are at 7:15 and 9:45 p.m.; “Vegas Vacation” (1997) is at 5 and atnmidnight.
3) “The Equalizer,” 8 p.m., CBS. It’s good to have this potent and well-crafted series back, after its long break. Tonight, a girl is dying of a rare brain disease; her mother is holding a hostage at the hospital, demanding help. Robyn (Queen Latifah) tries to intervene, despite government pushback.
4) “The Simpsons,” 8 p.m., Fox. We can’t imagine a world without Bart, but tonight his parents do. A prank causes chaos at school and they soon ponder what life would be if he’d never existed. Kerry Washington has her second turn as the 4th-grade teacher; she’ll be back next week.
5) “The Blacklist,” 10 p.m., NBC. Back in the first season, Parminder Nagra played Meera Malik, a skilled spy. She was killed in the season-finale … but when the 10th season opened last week, we met Meera’s daughter. Anya Banerjee, a newcomer, plays Siya Malik, the newest member of the team. Tonight, she helps infiltrate a high-stakes poker game, in an effort to catch Wujing.
