Today’s Top Picks


NBA Basketball

7:30 p.m. ET on ESPN

Atlantic rivals get down to business tonight in Philadelphia, where Joel Embiid and the 76ers will square off against Jaylen Brown and the Boston Celtics. The Sixers are hoping new head coach Doc Rivers can work his magic on a team that has made a few key player moves after a disappointing first-round exit from the playoffs this past fall. And the team that eliminated them in a four-game sweep, the Celts, have NBA Finals aspirations after falling short in the Eastern Conference finals last season.



8 p.m. ET on NBC

Now in its eighth season, this diabolically twisty crime thriller keeps coming up with ways to bring main characters into intense confrontations wherein it seems unlikely more than one player will live to fight another day. That’s certainly been true for this show’s two central characters, master criminal Raymond “Red” Reddington (James Spader) and FBI special agent Elizabeth Keen (Megan Boone). So just because tonight’s new episode finds Liz hellbent on getting revenge on Reddington, nothing fatally irreversible is likely to ensue.


In Concert at the Hollywood Bowl

9 p.m. ET on PBS

Drawn from the performance archives of the Los Angeles Philharmonic at the Hollywood Bowl, this music series featuring iconic moments with the orchestra at that historic performance venue continues with the episode “Hecho en Mexico (Made in Mexico).” The program features conductor Gustavo Dudamel and the LA Phil with guest artists including Natalia Lafourcade, Los Angeles Azules with YOLA (Youth Orchestra of Los Angeles) and La Santa Cecilia.


Little Women: Atlanta

9 p.m. ET on LIFETIME

After a hiatus year that has seen massive challenge and change around the world, this hit reality series returns for Season 6, which opens with tonight’s “Kick-Off Special.” To get things started, the women reassemble with host Terra Jolé for a two-hour look back at the previous five seasons. Any sense of nostalgia quickly evaporates, however, as old rivalries re-ignite and some shocking confessions come to light under some tough questioning about their complicated relationships.
