Sunday TV: Winning Emmys from Home

It won’t be the most disrupted Emmys ever (that happened after 9/11 it was rescheduled twice and finally held in November). This year The 72nd Primetime Emmy Awards (ABC, 8 p.m.) will try to bypass the pandemic by showing presenters, nominees and winners from home from 130 different feeds all coming into the empty Staples Center, where Jimmy Kimmel, who had been juggling the live show aspects for his late night show for months, will host. H.E.R. will sing in the in memoriam segment. 

A pair of Sunday night hits from HBO,, “Watchmen” and “Succession” lead with 11 and 10 nominations respectively; “Ozark” has nine; “The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel” and “Schitt’s Creek” each have eight. “Mrs. America” and “The Crown” are each up for six.

The fourth season begins for the elder couple on “Last Tango in Halifax” (PBS, 8 p.m., check local listings). 

The 53rd season begins for “60 Minutes” (CBS, 7:30 p.m.) with a report on the imperiled post office. 

Sunday Night Football has New England at Seattle (NBC, 8:20 p.m.). Other games today include Denver at Pittsburgh (CBS, 1 p.m.), Washington at Arizona (Fox, 4 p.m.) and Baltimore at Houston (CBS, 4:25 p.m.).
