Barbra - The Music... The Mem'ries... The Magic! - Tour Opener - Los AngelesBarbra Streisand pages through her past, singing songs from her No. 1 albums and telling a lot of stories from her most recent tour in “Barbra: The Music …The Memories…The Magic” (Netflix,streaming). She invests in her songs, and the adoring audience is behind her every step of the way. Jamie Foxx stops by and because the concert was filmed in Miami last December, there’s a Christmas song too. We hear her order out for food during intermission and the whole thing gets a little indulgent when it ends with a teary salute to her dog.

The “SEAL Team” (CBS, 9 p.m.) grumbles about bringing home an American soldier they think was a deserter.
