Wednesday TV: Big Brother Lockdown

I’m a little more excited than I should be for the return of “Big Brother” (CBs, 8 p.m.), albeit an “all-star” season means a lot of too-familiar retreads in the house when a new group would be more exciting. It seems the right show for a pandemic lockdown, though. Those voted out should be exiled immediately to Costco to fight lunkheads without masks. Already two have reportedly bowed out because of testing positive.

The 16 participants won’t be named until the two hour debut. Julie Chen Moonves returns to host, there will be no studio audience, and after tonight’s premiere, the series will again air Sundays, Wednesdays and Thursdays as a way to fill those pesky scheduling gaps.

The latest drama to be imported from Canada (to fill the gap after TV production shut down) is the very well considered “Coroner” (CW, 9 p.m.), starring Serinda Cooper as a new coroner who in the first episode is called in to investigate the death of a teen in a youth detention center.

The leader of Mexico’s Sinaloa cartel gets some TV time in the new documentary series “World’s Most Wanted” (Netflix, streaming).

The documentary “Anelka: Misunderstood” (Netflix, streaming) profiles the French soccer star Nicolas Anelka.
