Alicia Keys hosts the 61st Annual Grammy Awards (7 p.m., CBS). Among the scheduled highlights is a performance by Diana Ross to commemorate her 75th birthday.
- Fans wanting to get an idea of Oscar odds might check out the EE British Academy Film Awards (8 p.m., BBC America). Hosted by Joanna Lumley (“Absolutely Fabulous”) and held at London’s Royal Albert Hall, the awards often overlap with the American Oscars. “The Favourite” has been nominated in 12 categories. “Bohemian Rhapsody,” “First Man,” “Roma” and “A Star Is Born” each have seven nominations.
- Netflix’s “The Crown” returns for a third season sometime this year with Olivia Colman (“The Favourite”) assuming the role of Queen Elizabeth II. Given its wonderfully intelligent scripts, gorgeous photography, seemingly limitless production budget and access to stunning settings, “The Crown” makes other series seem decidedly second-rate. “Victoria” on “Masterpiece” (8 p.m., PBS, TV-PG) comes to mind. At best, it serves as a placeholder till the real thing comes along.
PBS continues its “Victoria” promotion with the two-part documentary “Margaret: The Rebel Princess” (9 p.m., TV-PG). Over two successive Sundays, it chronicles the life of Elizabeth’s overshadowed sister, who broke with royal protocol and fell in love with a married man, wed a philandering photographer and spent the 1960s and ’70s consorting with a louche crowd.
As longtime friends, journalists and biographers interviewed here recall, Margaret was a rebel only up to a point. She might have partied with Mick Jagger, but she still insisted on being called Her Majesty, a duality that struck some as spoiled and insufferable.
In one famous anecdote recalled here, George Harrison essentially kicked her and her husband out of a party for “A Hard Day’s Night.” The quiet Beatle, then 21, said, “Your highness, we really are hungry, and we can’t eat until you two go.”
Vanessa Kirby has played Margaret in the first two seasons of “The Crown.” Helena Bonham Carter picks up the mantle for season three.
- “60 Minutes” is pre-empted for coverage of the red carpet arrivals (6 p.m., CBS) to the Grammy Awards.
- Eddie Redmayne stars in the 2016 adaptation of J.K. Rowling’s fantasy “Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them” (6 p.m., NBC), a spin-off from the “Harry Potter” universe
- James’ undercover work consumes him on “Supergirl” (7 p.m., CW, r, TV-14).
- Management makes a decision on “Counterpart” (7 p.m., Starz, TV-MA).
- A demon for the books on “Charmed” (8 p.m., CW, r, TV-14).
- A tragedy brings the gang together on “The Walking Dead” (8 p.m., AMC, TV-MA)
Roddy McDowall stars in 1943’s “Lassie Come Home” (7 p.m., Sunday, TCM), a sentimental tale about a boy’s collie that inspired six other “Lassie” movies through the early 1950s and the popular TV series “Lassie,” which ran from 1954 to 1973.
Unfaithfully yours on “The Simpsons” (7 p.m., Fox, TV-PG) ... Candid camera work on “America’s Funniest Home Videos” (7 p.m., ABC, r, TV-PG)
