Monday TV: Kenan Hosts the 74th Emmys

Expect some familiar winners in The 74th Primetime Emmy Awards (NBC, 8 p.m.), where “Succession” leads with 25 nominations, and “Ted Lasso” next with 20. But HBO’s “The White Lotus” also has 20. Kenan Thompson of “Saturday Night Live” hosts the event live from the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles on a Monday for a change (to avoid being slammed by Sunday Night Football). 

“Independent Lens” (PBS, 10 p.m., check local listings) begins its 24th season with Byron Hurt’s “Hazing,” looking deep into the deadly rituals of college rush weeks.

Many daytime programs begin new seasons, including a new talk show, “The Jennifer Hudson Show” (Syndicated, check local listings) — the second daytime host with an “American Idol” pedigree, after Kelly Clarkson. 

A longtime daytime broadcast soap — for more than 60 years — “Days of Our Lives” (Peacock, streaming) moves from its NBC slot to an online service. Replacing it on the network is the news show “NBC News Daily” (NBC, 1 p.m.). 

The computer-animated preschool series “Ada Twist, Scientist” (Netflix, streaming) returns to start its third season.

Monday Night Football begins a new season with Denver at Seattle (ABC, ESPN, 8 p.m.), bumping “The Bachelorette” this week.
