Also on Sunday: BET Awards on CBS

rihanna-bet-2019The comedian Amanda Seales hosts The BET Awards 2020 (BET, CBS, 8 p.m.), where performers include Alicia Keys, Chloe X Halle, DaBaby, D Smoke, Jennifer Hudson, John Legends, Lil Wayne and Usher among others. The pandemic means the ceremony will be socially distanced (and not like last year’s event with Rihanna, pictured above).  But it also means, because of general lack of broadcast content, it will also be simulcast on network TV for the first time, on CBS.  Drake leads all nominations with six; Meghan Thee Stallion and Roddy Ricch follow with five each; Beyonce, Nicki Minaj, Chris Brown, Lizzo and Da Baby have four.
