What’s on TV
RUMBLE: THE INDIANS WHO ROCKED THE WORLD (2017) 10 p.m. on PBS (check local listings); rent on Amazon, Google Play, YouTube and Vudu. This documentary traces the history of American rock ’n’ roll — but this time without leaving out the monumental influence of Native American guitarists and drummers. Stars including Quincy Jones, Steven Tyler and Dan Auerbach share how they were inspired by Native musicians like Link Wray and Jimi Hendrix (who was part Cherokee). “Rumble” enriches the sound and meaning of rock, and boldly connects another piece of American history to its integral founders.
PARKS AND RECREATION 7 a.m. on Comedy Central. This beloved absurdist comedy series, streaming on a number of platforms, is back on network TV, and Comedy Central is celebrating its debut on the channel with an all-day marathon. Amy Poehler’s triumphant Leslie Knope and the rest of the all-star ensemble bring government bureaucracy to joyful life — who can forget “5,000 Candles in the Wind”?
BIXLER HIGH PRIVATE EYE (2019) 7 p.m. on Nickelodeon. For kids too young for “Riverdale,” Nickelodeon’s original movie may provide all the mystery while replacing the more adult themes with some light fun and humor. Follow the teenage detective Xander DeWitt (Jace Norman) as he tries to find his missing father. His new school, Bixler Valley High, may lead to a break in the case, but he must first forge a partnership with the school’s investigative reporter Kenzie Messina (Ariel Martin).
CELEBRITY BIG BROTHER 8 p.m. on CBS. Where can you find Ryan Lochte, Dina Lohan, Anthony Scaramucci and Tamar Braxton in the same place? The second season of “Celebrity Big Brother” will put them and other stars under constant surveillance as they share a house, with no connection to the outside world. As they fight to become the last remaining house guest, be prepared for stellar fights, alliances and betrayals, and some memorable lines.
PAWN STARS 10 p.m. on History Channel. One of the History Channel’s most popular shows returns for its 16th season of following three generations of the Harrison family and the inner workings of their pawnshop in Las Vegas. The series turns the world of hocking into one of amusement and suspense, where viewers can expect to celebrate the shop’s successes as much as the Harrisons do.
JUSTICE stream on Netflix. This drama, created by Walter Parkes and William Finkelstein (“L.A. Law”), follows the young lawyer Farah (Fatima al-Taei) as she forges a path within the Abu Dhabi Judicial Department in the United Arab Emirates. Fighting injustice and the pressure from her father to join his prestigious law firm, Farah defies her family’s expectations. The show, in Arabic, provides a look at modern life in Abu Dhabi.
