Sunday TV: Another New Detective for PBS

Wunmi Mosaku plays the latest imported European detective on public television — “Van der Valk” (PBS, 9 p.m., check local listings) who works out of Amsterdam and works tonight on a political caper.

“Lovecraft Country” (HBO, 9 p.m.) takes a strange turn to night as the blues singer Ruby makes a transformation into a white woman. 

They’re socially distanced and were already wearing masks, but the costumes on the upcoming season get a preview on a sneak preview of “The Masked Singer” (Fox, 8 p.m.). It’s part of a forward looking night on the network that also has “The 2020 Fox Fall Preview” (Fox, 9 p.m.), though I can’t imagine they could fill an hour of it. 

“Our Cartoon President” (Showtime, 8:30 p.m.) returns with new episodes, this time featuring such new characters as Dr. Fauci, Andrew Cuomo and Jill Biden. 

The purposeful dismantling of the post office in advance of election season is explored on “The Circus: Inside the Craziest Political Campaign on Earth” (Showtime, 8 p.m.). 

Sunday Night Football makes its debut with Dallas at Rams (NBC, 8:20 p.m.). If it’s anything like Thursday, racists will make themselves known by booing and coach facemarks will get totally fogged. 

It’s preceded by “Football Night in America” (NBC, 7 p.m.). Earlier games today include Philadelphia at Washington (Fox, 1 p.m.), Cleveland at Baltimore (CBS, 1 p.m.) and Tampa Bay at New Orleans (Fox, 4 p.m.).

The men’s singles final puts an end to an unusual U.S. Open (ESPN, 4 p.m.).
