Going for the gold
With amiable Jimmy Fallon at the helm, expect a kinder, gentler “2017 Golden Globe Awards” compared with those of recent years, in which the most memorable moments came via razor-sharp put-downs by hosts Ricky Gervais, Tina Fey and Amy Poehler. The Cecil B. DeMille Award is going to Meryl Streep, who probably should have received this honor nine hosts ago.

Keep on doin’ what you do
I doubt there was an outcry for a reboot of “One Day at a Time,” but creators Gloria Calderon Kellett and “Everybody Loves Raymond” veteran Mike Royce make this new sitcom work by focusing on a Cuban-American clan held together by a single mother who’s recovering from separation and war service. The 13 episodes are best when grandma (a campy but irresistible Rita Moreno) and granddaughter (Isabella Gomez) battle over the importance of recognizing one’s heritage. Original creator Norman Lear is an executive producer.

Guess who’s coming to dinner
Whether you like “My Kitchen Rules” will depend largely on your appetite for watching marginal celebrities use a loosey-goosey competition format to add meat to their public personas. Almost all of the contestants, who take turns hosting and judging each other in their homes, pull their weight, which means lots of “politically incorrect grandma” comments from Naomi Judd, eyerolling by Brandy and a threat by Andrew Dice Clay to punch a tablemate for eyeing his wife for dessert.
