1) “The Good Doctor,” 10 p.m. today, ABC. Shaun, the autistic surgeon, faces a malpractice suit. His lawyer (Felicity Huffman) advises a settlement, but her researcher (beautifully played by Kennedy McMahon, shown here, the “Nancy Drew” star) disagrees. She’s also autistic and this is a pilot for a “Good Lawyer” series. We’re not sure it would work as a series, but it makes a strong and moving episode.
2) “Great Performances: Remember This,” 9-11 p.m., PBS. The Polish Resistance told Jan Karski to observe conditions and report them internationally. He was captured twice and escaped twice, once after surviving torture and a suicide attempt. Then came a new ordeal, witnessing the Holocaust and getting little reaction from international leaders. His story is told in a one-man play, brilliantly acted (by David Strathairn) and filmed (in black-and-white).
3) “9-1-1,” 8 p.m., Fox. “Buck” Buckley has had some wild detours. He dropped out of college and out of SEAL training. He was a biker, a surfer, a drifter. As a firefighter, he was fired once for bad behavior and other times almost lost his leg and his life. And as last week’s episode ended, he was struck by lightning. Now he’s in a coma, with his mind drifting to alternate lives where he never was a firefighter.
4) “All American: Homecoming,” 9 p.m., CW. In real life last spring, a women’s lacrosse team’s bus was stopped by deputies in rural Georgia. When they saw its Black passengers, they searched all the luggage. That drew understandable outrage then … and this so-so episode now. Some elements – a forfeit and (in another storyline) a penalized student – seem absurd; others are mainly clumsy.
5) ALSO: On the comedy side, CBS’ “Bob (Hearts) Abishola,” at 8:30 p.m., finds Bob failing to soothe the spat between Goodwin and Kofo. On the documentary side, the Fox Nation streamer has “Jussie Smollett: Anatomy of a Hoax.” Smollett was a successful actor and musician, until being convicted of falsely reporting he was the victim of a hate crime. The documentary interviews the brothers who say he hired them as fake attackers.
