Today’s Top Picks


Weakest Link

8 p.m. on NBC – Series Premiere

Jane Lynch (“Hollywood Game Night”) hosts this reboot of a British game show that aired previously on this network from 2001-02, hosted by tart British TV personality Anne Robinson. In each episode, eight contestants work as a team to answer general-knowledge questions, with the value of each consecutive correct answer increasing exponentially. If a player gives a wrong answer, though, the money awarded drops back to the lowest amount. At the end of each round, the team votes to eject the player they see as their “weakest link.”


Little People, Big World

9 p.m. on TLC – Season Premiere

Season 21 opens on the end of an era, as Amy prepares to bid farewell to Roloff Farms for good, but while she’s moving off the property, she still co-owns part of it with Matt, who is eager to settle that legal issue in the season premiere, “To Sell or Not to Sell.” Meanwhile, Tori and Zach are experiencing the joys and challenges of parenthood with baby Lilah and Jackson. This season also will address how the pandemic affects the world of the Roloffs.


Hope Gap

10 p.m. ET on EPIX – Premiere

Bill Nighy and four-time Oscar nominee Annette Bening give memorable performances in writer-director William Nicholson’s 2019 adaptation of his play “The Retreat From Moscow.” The two stars play Edward and Grace, who have been married for nearly three decades, but Grace’s world tilts sharply on its axis when her husband announces he is leaving her from another woman. The film charts the turbulent emotional journey Grace is forced to take in the aftermath of that announcement. Josh O’Connor, Aiysha Hart and Ryan McKen co-star.


Sweet Home Sextuplets

10:02 p.m. ET on TLC – Season Premiere

The Waldrop family returns for Season 4 and, since apparently the challenges of parenting sextuplets are too easy, they currently are extensively renovating their house, forcing a temporary relocation to a mobile home, in the season premiere “Mobile Home for the Holidays.” Meanwhile, outside their temporary living space, their Alabama town is slammed by one crisis after another, ranging from violent storms to the weird new world of the COVID-19 pandemic.
