1) “The Wonder Years,” 9 p.m., ABC. After being bumped for two straight weeks, this has an episode that’s a “West Wing” reunion. In late-’60s Alabama, Dean’s dad (Dule Hill) isn’t used to the idea of an inter-racial friendship. But he’s a musician and likes Dean’s music teacher (Bradley Whitford, Hill’s “West Wing” colleague; they’re shown here with Dean). They plan a couples’ night – while the kids have home-alone schemes.
2) “Abbott Elementary,” 9:30, ABC. This is Teacher Appreciation Day, but the appreciation is modest: There are two free basketball tickets … and a dilemma to see who gets them. It’s a funny rerun, but some scenes with Janine’s sister (Ayo Edebiri, an Emmy nominee on “The Bear”) feel stiff.
3) “Big Brother 25th Anniversary Celebration.” 9 p.m., CBS. A week before its 25th season begins, this show looks back at its noisy history. The three most recent winners – Taylor Hale, Xavier Prather and Cody Calafiore – will be there, plus winners from seasons 11 (Jordan Lloyd), 13 (Rachel Reilly) and 16 (Derrick Levasseur) and fan favorites. Also included: Julie Chen (who has hosted every season) and glimpses of fights, romances and controversies.
4) “The Human Footprint,” 9 p.m., PBS. As humans play favorites, the world changes. Americans, some sources say, raise nine billion chickens a year; our cats annually kill 1-3 billion birds and 7-10 billion small animals. We obsess on grass (one desert golf course gulps 300,000 gallons of water daily) and corn. Less that one percent of corn reaches us directly, this intriguing hour says; as cattle feed, it becomes “a crop that walks itself to market.”
5) ALSO: There’s a great double-feature on Turner Classic Movies – “To Kill a Mockingbird” (1962) and “In the Heat of the Night” (1967), at 8 and 10:15 p.m. ET. And the big networks have plenty of non-reruns – at 8 p.m., “LA Fire and Rescue” (NBC), “Judge Steve Harvey” (ABC), “Nancy Drew” (CW) … at 9, “Riverdale” (CW). And all night, women’s World Cup soccer (Fox), including the U.S. and Netherlands at 9 p.m. ET.
