“A Series of Unfortunate Events”

Thursday 12

“Taking the Stage: African American Music and the Stories That Changed America” (KOAT-7 8pm) ABC celebrates the opening of the Smithsonian’s National Museum of African American History and Culture.

“My Kitchen Rules” (KASA-2 8pm) Celebrities like Lance Bass, Andrew Dice Clay, Naomi Judd, Brandy and Ray J. compete in a cooking competition. Why would any of these people care what we, the general public, think of their cooking skills?

“Caraoke Showdown” (Spike TV 8:30pm) It’s an amateur karaoke competition, but it takes place in a car! And actor/comedian Craig Robinson is driving the car! And it’s a rip-off of “Cash Cab”! Also “Carpool Karaoke”! Did I mention it takes place in a car? Gosh, what will TV think of next?

Friday 13

“A Series of Unfortunate Events” (Netflix streaming anytime) Neil Patrick Harris stars in this darkly comic series based on the gloomy, gothic books by Lemony Snicket.

Saturday 14

“Queen Boss” (Centric 8pm) Think “Shark Tank,” but exclusively for female African-American entrepreneurs. Because that’s what it is.

Sunday 15

“First Family of Hip Hop” (Bravo 10pm) Sylvia Robinson was the founder (along with husband Joe) of Sugar Hill Records—which, in 1979, released what is considered the first commercial rap single, “Rapper’s Delight.” Now, Sylvia’s offspring—much like the lesser Jacksons—are trying to put their own stamp on the music industry. Naturally, they’re starting with a reality show.

“The 44th President: In His Own Words” (History 7pm) History Channel reflects on the legacy of President Barack Obama with this two-hour exit interview.

“Victoria on Masterpiece” (KNME-5 8pm) England needs to start pumping out new kings and queens, because PBS and the BBC have dramatized the ones we’ve already got to death.

“The Young Pope” (HBO 7pm) This irreverent, almost surreal series looks at the Vatican’s first American Pope (played by Brit Jude Law). The series is written and directed by Italian Paolo Sorrentino (The Great Beauty, Youth), whose lavish eye for detail puts him in league with Australian Baz Luhrmann (Romeo + Juliet, Moulin Rouge!, The Great Gatsby).

Monday 16

“Howie Mandel All-Star Comedy Gala” (KWBQ-19 7pm) So long as Howie isn’t actually performing, we might survive.

“Rock ’N’ Roll Inventions” (Smithsonian 6pm) From 78rpm records to transistor radios to jukeboxes to cassettes to synthesizers, the music industry has had its hand in a lot of modern innovations. ... Tight leather pants too, by the way.

Tuesday 17

“Throwing Shade” (TV Land 8:30pm) Based on the popular podcast of the same name, this pop cultural gossip show treats the day’s hot topics with “much less respect than they deserve.”

Wednesday 18

“People’s Choice Awards 2017” (KRQE-13 8pm) Kevin Hart, Nick Jonas, LL Cool J, Hilary Duff, Tim Allen and Kevin James are among those nominated in the acting categories. Forgive me if I don’t exactly trust “the people.”

“Six” (History 8pm) History Channel dramatizes the work of the Navy’s SEAL Team Six with this military action series written by Willam Broyles Jr. (Cast Away, Jarhead).
