Better Call Saul (10 p.m., AMC) – It’s the series “Breaking Bad” fans have been waiting for. This prequel-spinoff focuses on the story of Walter White’s lawyer, Saul Goodman ( Bob Odenkirk), six years before that infamous blue meth hit Albuquerque. In the opener, Saul is actually Jimmy McGill, a public defender trying to do the right thing. As with “Breaking Bad’s” examination of the moral unraveling of Walter White, this series will show Good Jimmy’s transformation into Sketchy Saul, but the tone will be decidedly lighter. The series moves to it’s regular Mondays at 10 p.m. timeslot tomorrow.

Grammy Awards (8 p.m., CBS) – The actual awards are often puzzling to music fans, but the show is always entertaining. LL Cool J hosts and scheduled performances include Ed Sheeran, Ariana Grande, Eric Church and for the old people, Madonna.
The Jinx: The Life and Deaths of Robert Durst (8 p.m., HBO) – The opening of this new six-part documentary series tracks a series of unsolved crimes, focusing on Robert Durst, heir to a New York City real estate empire. Durst, who cooperated with the series, has been linked to several murders, but never convicted of any of them. And for the most part, he has never discussed his life with reporters. This promises to be absolutely fascinating (and the series that finally draws me back into HBO’s billing cycle).
