1) “A Small Light” opener, 9-11:29 p.m., National Geographic. People worldwide know Anne Frank, the teen whose diary described her life while hiding from the Nazis. Now we meet the heroic Miep Gies. A young woman who worked for Anne’s father Otto, she took huge risks for two years, bringing supplies. (She’s shown here, right, helping Anner’s older sister.) The story is told slowly (eight-plus hours on four Mondays) and well, with great work from Bel Powley and Liev Schreiber, as Miep and Otto.
2) “The Good Doctor” season-finale, 10 p.m., ABC. A farewell stretch begins for ABC. Over the next three days, eight shows will have their season-finales; for two of them (“Goldbergs” and “A Million Little Things”) it will also be the series finales. The rush starts now, with Lea ready to have her baby; then a tragic accident pulls everyone – including her husband Shaun – away.
3) “The Voice” (NBC) and “America Idol” (ABC), 8-10 p.m. While some of the scripted shows wrap up, these competitions are at their best. Tonight, “Voice” starts its “playoffs”; Blake Shelton and Chance the Rapper must trim to two singers each. The “Idol” judges have come up with song suggestions for the top-10; by the end of the night, that will be down to seven.
4) “Bob (Hearts) Abishola,” 8:30 p.m., CBS. Right now, there’s too much togetherness. Bob needs time away from his mom, who’s there at work and home; Kofo needs time from Tunde, his new landlord.
5) “White House Plumbers” opener, 9 p.m., HBO. A half-century later, the Watergate break-in is providing fresh cable entertainment. A year ago, it was “Gaslit” on Starz, focusing on Martha Mitchell, the attorney general’s wife. Now this five-parter views the operation’s masterminds: Woody Harrelson plays E. Howard Hunt, a former CIA guy who had already written 30 novels under five names; Justin Theroux plays G. Gordon Liddy, a fomrer FBI guy.
