The winners of the 59th Annual Grammy Awards (6 p.m., CBS/Ch. 2) matter to the nominees, but not so much to the viewers. This is always a good show because of the performances.
And scheduled performers include Adele, Kelsea Ballerini, William Bell, Chance The Rapper, Gary Clark Jr., Andra Day, Cynthia Erivo, Tori Kelly, Lady Gaga, Barry Gibb, Lukas Graham, Alicia Keys, John Legend, Little Big Town, Demi Lovato, Metallica, Bruno Mars, Maren Morris, Anderson .Paak, Daft Punk, Sturgill Simpson, A Tribe Called Quest, Carrie Underwood, Keith Urban and The Weeknd. And there will be tributes to George Michael and Prince.
James Corden hosts, live from Los Angeles.
Also this weekend, Alec Baldwin will host “Saturday Night Live” (10:30 p.m., NBC/Ch. 5). I don’t think you need to be clarivoyent to know that he won’t be getting rave reviews on Twitter from the man in the White House.
Speaking of TV shows that man in the White House won’t like, PBS is airing “John Lewis — Get in the Way” (9:30 p.m., PBS/Ch. 7) — a profile of the 76-year-old congressman/civil rights pioneer who was denigrated by Donald Trump after deciding not to attend the inauguration last month.
