Live From Lincoln Center Presents — Stars in Concert: Megan Hilty

HOW/WHEN & WHERE TO WATCH: Check local listings, PBS

Megan Hilty is a big, brassy Broadway talent, but in spite of that, her new special is pleasantly forgettable. On stage, she’s a magnetic performer. Here, though the set list is satisfying and her vocals flawless, the show feels more like background music. Hilty shines on everything from pop to standards to Broadway duets and medleys (her trio with former Wicked costars Shoshana Bean and Eden Espinosa is a true highlight), but this concert is more a feast for the ears than one that demands full attention. B —Maureen Lee Lenker

Vida

HOW/WHEN & WHERE TO WATCH: 9 p.m. on Starz

Season Premiere
Season 2 finally unites prodigal daughters Emma (Mishel Prada) and Lyn (Melissa Barrera) — a chilly corporate professional; a shopaholic Insta-bot — with their mom’s widow Eddy (Ser Anzoategui). They’re trying to hold on to the family’s building, a tavern-apartment complex occupying prime real estate in an East L.A. battleground of predatory gentrification. Vida still feels torn between sudsy nude-positive melodrama and complex political dedication. Worth watching, though, just for Roberta Colindrez (The Deuce) as a swagger-y bartender with love-interested eyes on Emma. B — Darren Franich

We Just Re-Watched…

Need a break from 24/7 cable news? Confused about how a bill becomes a law? Want a refresher on governmental inner workings before the 2020 election? Sounds like it’s time to relive the series that brought Josiah Bartlet’s presidency to life. Standout episodes tackle everything from the death penalty (“Take This Sabbath Day”) to PTSD (“Nöel,” with an Emmy-winning turn by Bradley Whitford). The series pulls back the curtain so we plebeians can better understand politics while balancing friendships, life, laughs, and, yes, even a romance or two along the way. #JoshandDonnaForever. By the time each episode’s credits roll, you’ll be asking, “What’s next?” —Brittany Kaplan
