Two of the most delightful Bob Hope-Bing Crosby Road pictures are shown tonight: 1942’s Road to Morocco, followed at 10 p.m. by 1946’s Road to Utopia. Both films co-star Dorothy Lamour, playing Sal Van Heusen in the latter, and Princess Shalmar (pictured) in the former.

SEASON PREMIERE: The first new TV series of 2020 premieres tonight, starring Stephen Dorff as a somewhat reluctant rookie lawman. I’d joke that it was the best series of the year (the year being two days old), but I’ve learned my lesson. Back on January 1, 1989 – now, sigh, 31 years ago – CBS premiered a terrible made-for-TV movie called The Karen Carpenter Story, starring Cynthia Gibb.

Happy New Year! The year 2020 begins on Syfy the way 2019 ended: with selected episodes of Rod Serling’s classic series, The Twilight Zone. Enjoy twisted tales of toy telephones, moving mannequins, cosmic cookbooks, and more.

To drum up interest in, and more viewers for, its underrated and certainly underwatched series Evil, which made my Top 10 TV list for 2019, CBS tonight is repeating the first three episodes of Evil in a convenient mini-marathon. That’d be great, if tomorrow night CBS woiuld continue with episodes four through six – but no. Instead, it shows a single episode, and jumps to episode eight. Nice work, CBS.

SEASON PREMIERE: Meanwhile, BBC America starts out the new year much more correctly, with the season’s first fresh episode of Doctor Who. Jodie Whittaker returns as the 13th Doctor, in what is the modern series’ Season 12. No idea whether they’ll appear in tonight’s top-secret season premiere – but at some point this year, both Stephen Fry and Lenny Henry will join the Who fold.

DOCUMENTARY PREMIERE: This CNN Film looks at the life and music of recent Kennedy Center Honors recipient Linda Ronstadt, whose voice is as pure as her musical enthusiasm is wide-ranging. She takes part in this documentary as an active participant.
