Wednesday TV: ACM Awards Tries Again

Postponed from April, The 55th Academy of Country Music Awards (CBS, 8 p.m.) is finally presented — from Nashville for the first time — with live and taped performances from its most iconic venues, the Grand Ole Opry, Ryman Auditorium and the Bluebird Cafe — all still minus an audience.

Performers include Taylor Swift, Maren Morris, Tim McGraw, Miranda Lambert, Trisha Yearwood, Blake Shelton and Gwen Stefani, host Keith Urban alongside Pink and all five nominees for entertainer of the year — Luke Bryan, Eric Church, Luke Combs, Thomas Rhett and Carrie Underwood.  

Tom Holland stars in an adaptation of Donald Ray Pollock’s psychological thriller “The Devil All the Time” (Netflix, streaming), set in postwar Ohio. Robert Pattinson, Riley Keogh and Bill Skarsgard also star.

A new four-part documentary series “Challenger: The Final Flight” (Netflix, streaming), looks into the 1986 space shuttle disaster. 

The three episode nature series kicks off, “Islands of Wonder” (PBS, 8 p.m., check local listings), looking at three different islands and their unique traits — Madagascar, Borneo and Hawaii.

The 11th season of “Archer” (FXX, 10 p.m.) is set into the future, where the title star is just emerging from a three year coma.
