Monday TV: CMT Music Awards on CBS

Kelsea Bellerini hosts the 2022 CMT Music Awards (CBS, 8 p.m.) with Anthony Mackie, the first time on a broadcast network in the show’s four decade long history. Along with the fan-voted awards in Nashville, Kacey Musgraves will introduce the first reunion of the Judds in more than 20 years. Performances are also set from Luke Combs, Kane Brown, Miranda Lambert, Little Big Town, Maren Morris with Ryan Hurd, Jason Aldean with Bryan Adams and Mickey Guyton with Black Pumas. The CMT Red Carpet Special (CMT, 7 p.m.) is still on cable, though.

The new series “Bake or Break” (Food, 10 p.m.) sounds like a “Restaurant Rescue” for bakeries. Stephanie Boswell is the adviser. 

 Bebe Rexha mentors the hopefuls on “American Idol” (ABC, 8 p.m.) as the Hawaii performances conclude by naming the Top 20. 

A fourth season starts for the French mystery series “Balthazar” (Acorn TV, streaming). 

Sam struggles with anxiety on “Better Things” (FX, 10 p.m.).

On “My Brilliant Friend” (HBO, 10 p.m.), Elena’s marriage is on the rocks. 

The show’s namesake returns to “The Rachel Maddow Show” (MSNBC, 9 p.m.) after a hiatus. 

Trevor Noah faces a studio audience on “The Daily Show” (Comedy Central, 11 p.m.) for the first time in two years. 

OK, “The Invisible Pilot” (HBO, 9 p.m.) is a pretty wild story. Which became clear when the guy considered dead showed up for his interview.
