What’s on TV This Week: ‘RuPaul’s Drag Race’ and the Golden Globes

Between network, cable and streaming, the modern television landscape is a vast one. Here are some of the shows, specials and movies coming to TV this week, Jan. 1-7. Details and times are subject to change.

2023 ROCK & ROLL HALL OF FAME INDUCTION CEREMONY 8 p.m. on ABC. Though celebrating music highlights of 2023 on the first day of 2024 feels a little belated, for Missy Elliott and Sheryl Crow I’ll let it go. This ceremony, which took place in Brooklyn in November, includes performances by Elliott and Crow, inductees that year, as well as appearances by Stevie Nicks, Elton John and LL Cool J.

MONKEY BUSINESS (1931) 8 p.m. on TCM. The title of this movie aptly portrays the shenanigans that go on when the Marx Brothers stow away on an ocean liner, stirring up drama and laughs while they avoid the wrath of the captain and his crew.

FINDING YOUR ROOTS 8 p.m. on PBS (check local listings). This show has told us that Bernie Sanders and Larry David are in fact related, the best-friend duo Matt Damon and Ben Affleck are 10th cousins (once removed) and Kevin Bacon shares relatives with his wife, Kyra Sedgwick. Now it’s back for its 10th season, hosted, as always, by Henry Louis Gates Jr. The first episode will feature the singers Ciara and Alanis Morissette.

I CAN SEE YOUR VOICE 8 p.m. on Fox. “The Voice” allows judges to hear contestants’ singing before laying eyes on them. This competition show does the opposite. Judges on the show, hosted by Ken Jeong, have to rate contestants based on lip-sync challenges and facts about them. The answers are revealed when the celebrity judges, including Adrienne Bailon-Houghton and Cheryl Hines, sing a duet with the contestant — either it goes really right or really wrong.

THE POWER OF FILM 8 p.m. on TCM. This original six-part documentary series uses storytelling devices to take a closer look at some of the most popular films of the last century. Using more than 50 film scenes, the episodes go through themes of paradoxes, character relationships and heroes and villains to illuminate what makes a film powerful.

GENERAL HOSPITAL: 60 YEARS OF STARS AND STORYTELLING 10 p.m. on ABC. The first episode of “General Hospital” had its premiere on April 1, 1963 — and it is now the longest running soap opera still in production and has a record for most outstanding daytime drama award wins. This special, celebrating the show’s 60 years (and counting!), features some of its actors, including Maurice Benard, Jane Elliot, Genie Francis, Finola Hughes, Kelly Monaco and Laura Wright. They will share behind-the-scenes memories, bloopers and a fan tribute.

RUPAUL’S DRAG RACE 8 p.m. on MTV. The new year is exactly when we need to hear: “If you can’t love yourself, how in the hell are you going to love somebody else?” RuPaul Charles returns for the 16th season of this drag queen competition show; as usual, we will see amazing customs outfits, passionate lip syncs from the queens and panels of celebrity guest judges, including Charlize Theron, Becky G and Ronan Farrow.

IT’S COMPLICATED (2009) 10:30 p.m. on E! Just because the holidays are over doesn’t mean we have to say goodbye to Nancy Meyers — the filmmaker has plenty of movies for every occasion. This one stars Meryl Streep as Jane, a restaurateur who is divorced from Jake (Alec Baldwin), except their romance has been rekindled — until Jane finds out Jake is remarried and she is now “the other woman.” Meanwhile, the architect Adam (Steve Martin) starts remodeling Jane’s kitchen (one of the most gorgeous I have ever seen), and you can guess what happens next.

THE GOLDEN GLOBE AWARDS 8 p.m. on CBS. This award show has been struggling to get back on its feet after NBC bowed out as the broadcaster in 2022 because of ethical concerns and a lack of diversity within the Hollywood Foreign Press Association, which had hosted the event. In June, the Golden Globes brand was bought by Eldridge Industries and Dick Clark Productions, and the voting body expanded to about 300 — so change is in the air. For movies, “Barbie” leads the nominations with nine, followed by “Oppenheimer” with eight — for television, “Succession” has the most nominations at nine.

THE GREAT NORTH 9:30 p.m. on Fox. This animated adult cartoon is back for a fourth season. Nick Offerman voices Beef Tobin, an eccentric dad trying to keep his equally eccentric children close. The season begins with Ham Tobin (Paul Rust) enlisting his family to help out with a speech he has to present during his public speaking class.
