DON'T MISS: "Motown 60: A Grammy Celebration" -- Sadly, many of the legends who built Berry Gordy's iconic record label into a pop-cultural powerhouse have left us. But Motown legends Smokey Robinson, Diana Ross and Stevie Wonder are present and accounted for in this joyous two-hour celebration. They're joined by contemporary acts such as John Legend, Tori Kelly, Little Big Town, Meghan Trainor and Ne-Yo. The set list is packed with a number of classic tunes guaranteed to get you off the couch and start dancing. (8 p.m. Sunday, CBS).

Other bets:

SUNDAY: "American Idol" slips on some mouse ears and heads to Disneyland for tonight's installment. The Top 10 contestants perform -- you guessed it -- songs from Disney movies. Rebel Wilson serves as celebrity mentor and Lea Michele guest stars. (8 p.m., ABC).

SUNDAY: Tonya Harding, Morgan Fairchild and Jimmie Walker are among the culinary-challenged folk taking part in the latest edition of "Worst Cooks in America: Celebrity Edition." Here's hoping they don't blow up the kitchen. (9 p.m., Food Network).

MONDAY: In the Season 1 finale of "The Neighborhood," Dave is thrilled when Calvin invites him on a golfing trip, confident that it represents progress in their shaky relationship. Ah, but Calvin may have an ulterior motive. (8 p.m., CBS).

MONDAY: "Gentleman Jack" is an eight-episode drama about real-life 19th-century landowner Anne Lister (Suranne Jones), who routinely bucked society's expectations. She dressed all in black, charmed her way into high society and set her sights on marrying a wealthy woman. (10 p.m., HBO).

TUESDAY: After four drama-filled seasons, "Being Mary Jane" bids farewell with a two-hour finale. Will our leading lady (Gabrielle Union) accept Justin's (Michael Ealy) surprise proposal? And if so, what will his reaction be to those frozen embryos she had implanted? (8 p.m., BET).

WEDNESDAY: Brace yourself for another kick-butt season of "Cobra Kai." After watching Johnny (William Zabka) claim a controversial victory at the All Valley Championships, Daniel (Ralph Macchio) opens his own karate training school and a new rivalry between opposing dojos is born. (YouTube Premium).

THURSDAY: It's the end of the line for "Gotham." In the series finale, we leap forward 10 years. Gordon is now police commissioner and Penguin and The Riddler are up to no good. Now, a new figure (guess who!) emerges from the shadows to be the hero the city desperately needs. (8 p.m., Fox).

 

THURSDAY: All hell apparently breaks out in the season finale of "Supernatural" as Sam, Dean and Castiel are thrown into an epic battle. Meanwhile, Jack becomes disenchanted with all the lies, and an old friend from the past shows up. (8 p.m., The CW).

FRIDAY: In the creepy new series "Chambers," a young heart transplant patient is haunted by eerie visions and sinister impulses. So she becomes desperate to dig up the truth behind her donor's mysterious death. The cast includes Sivan Alyra Rose, Uma Thurman and Tony Goldwyn. (Netflix).

SATURDAY: After a two-year wait, "The Son" returns to finish off the saga of the wealthy Texas family. Pierce Brosnan stars as ruthless Eli McCullough, a man who will stop at nothing to secure his legacy against the backdrop of the nascent oil industry of 1917. (9 p.m., AMC).
