Around the Remote: streaming shows to rule at Emmys

DDO NOT MISS : “73rd Emmy Awards” – It’s TV big night, and we have a lot of questions: Can the comedic soccer underdogs of “Ted Lasso” really feel the thrill of victory? Is “The Crown” about to win a spectacular royal flush? Will Baby Yoda grace the red carpet with his presence? (Yes please!)

At least one thing seems pretty certain: shows from streaming platforms will dominate. As for our host, just hope that Cédric the Animator lives up to his name. (5 p.m. Sunday, CBS).

Other bets

SUNDAY: Prolific filmmaker Ken Burns focuses on another American icon with “Muhammad Ali”. This is a gripping four-part, eight-hour documentary series that chronicles Ali’s extraordinary life and examines how it intersects with sport, culture, civil rights and religion. (8 p.m., PBS)

MONDAY: Two reality TV stalwarts return as “Dancing With the Stars” waltzes into its 30th season starring Tyra Banks again. Meanwhile, “The Voice” is kicking off its 21st search for a pop star, with Ariana Grande making her coaching debut. (8 p.m., ABC and NBC)

MONDAY: It’s a double dose of “NCIS”. First, the most popular prime-time drama opens its 19th season. Next is the debut of “NCIS: Hawai’i”. Vanessa Lachey plays Jane Tennant, the great kahuna who runs things in Pearl Harbor. (9 p.m. and 10 p.m., CBS)

MONDAY: James Wolk has his work cut out for him as the star of the high profile drama “Ordinary Joe”. He plays three versions of the same character and shows us what could happen if he chose different paths in life. (10 p.m. NBC)

TUESDAY: Are there more FBI agents on TV than in real life? We’re asking because “FBI” and “FBI: Most Wanted” are both launching new seasons and the spin-off series “FBI: International” is making its debut. (8 p.m., 9 p.m. and 10 p.m., CBS)

TUESDAY: “Our Kind of People” is a soapy new saga set in a wealthy enclave of Martha’s Vineyard where the rich and powerful black elite come to play – and a lot of drama takes place. Yaya DaCosta directs the cast. (9 p.m., Fox)

WEDNESDAY: Two more popular reality competitions return as “The Masked Singer” and “Survivor” return to the game. The latter launches his – gulp! – 41st season with a two hour opening. (8 p.m., Fox and CBS)

WEDNESDAY: Ready to spend the night in the Windy City? Producer Dick Wolf’s popular trio of heroic dramas – “Chicago Med,” Chicago Fire “and” Chicago PD “- raise the curtain on their new seasons. (8 p.m., 9 p.m. and 10 p.m., NBC)

WEDNESDAY: We tend to greet TV reboots with a scowl. But “The Wonder Years” intrigued us. This version follows a middle-class black family in Montgomery, Alabama, circa 1968. The story is told from the perspective of an adorably awkward 12-year-old played by Elisha “EJ” Williams. (8:30 p.m., ABC)

THURSDAY: The “Law & Order” franchise offers three scorching hours tonight. First, “Law & Order: SVU,” the longest-running prime-time live action series in television history, kicks off its 23rd season with a two-hour debut game. This is followed by the opening of Season 2 of “Law & Order: Organized Crime”. (8 p.m. and 10 p.m., NBC)

FRIDAY: Isaac Asimov’s iconic sci-fi trilogy about a dying galactic empire gets an ambitious screen adaptation in “Foundation.” The series stars Jared Harris as a brilliant mathematician who predicts a bleak future for humanity. Enter a band of exiles determined to save him. (Apple TV +)

FRIDAY: Halloween is still a month away, but “Midnight Mass” should bring some spooky chills. From horror maestro Mike Flanagan (“The Haunting of Hill House”; “The Haunting of Bly Manor”), the series tells the story of an isolated island community where miraculous and terrifying things begin to happen after arrival of a mysterious priest. (Netflix)
