    State of the Union, 31 Days of Oscar, Wine Drama

    Turner Classic Movies kicks off its monthlong 31 Days of Oscar movie marathon with a lineup of all Oscar winners. President Biden commands the airwaves with his first State of the Union address. While ABC’s wine-soaked soap Promised Land moves to Hulu, OWN’s The Kings of Napa wraps its first sudsy season.

    State of the Union Address

    At a particularly precarious moment in world history, President Joe Biden delivers his first State of the Union address to the U.S. Congress. Followed by the Republican response. As is his recent tradition, Stephen Colbert hosts a live edition of The Late Show (11:35/10:35c) after the speech, with Bernie Sanders making his 14th appearance as a guest.

    Promised Land

    If you were looking for this midseason prime-time soap set in wine country in its regular time period on ABC Monday night, you must have missed the news that the show has moved to streaming for the remainder of its first (and presumably only) season. Low ratings doomed it, but at least the rest of the season can be seen somewhere.

    The Kings of Napa

    Another soapy drama set in the world of wineries, Kings wraps its first season (not yet renewed for a second) with an episode juicily titled “Judas and the Black-Owned Vineyard.” In the climax, August (Ebonée Noel) finally learns who’s behind all the sour grapes bedeviling the family business.

    31 Days of Oscar:

    (Starts at 6 am/5c, Turner Classic Movies): For the 28th year, TCM celebrates the Oscars (airing March 27 on ABC) with a monthlong programming showcase of movie classics with Oscar cred. This year’s theme: “The Winners,” for the first time only showing films that actually won an Oscar. The first week’s lineup is broken into decades, starting with 1940s winners on Tuesday (Wednesday is the 1950s, Thursday the 1960s, Friday the 1970s). The Oscar parade begins with 1940’s The Westerner, which earned Walter Brennan a supporting-actor Oscar as the infamous Judge Roy Bean. Prime-time highlights include 1945’s best-picture winner The Lost Weekend (8/7c)

    Inside Tuesday TV:

    • American Auto (8/7c, NBC): This workplace satire is beginning to test my tolerance for squirm-inducing bad behavior. The setting for Season 1’s penultimate episode is a swank Payne Foundation fundraiser, where a neurotic Katherine (Ana Gasteyer) begins to suspect the auto company’s board may be wooing a former astronaut to replace her as CEO. Fellow Saturday Night Live alum Brad Hall plays Katherine’s oft-neglected husband, and Tom Bergeron appears as himself as the event’s emcee, needling all the Paynes except pathetic Wesley (Jon Barinholtz, appearing with real-life brother Ike).
    • Naomi (9/8c, The CW): The sole scripted network original series airing opposite the president’s speech is the teen superhero series, where Naomi (Kaci Walfall) learns more than she bargained for during Port Oswego’s Homecoming.
    • Murder in Provence (streaming on BritBox): The beguiling setting in southern France is just window-dressing for a procedural where the British cast doesn’t even pretend to speak the native language. Roger Allam (Endeavour) is Investigating Judge Antoine Verlaque in a series that opens with deadly intrigue within a local university’s medieval history department.
    • Mogul Mowgli (streaming on HBO Max): Riz Ahmed, Oscar-nominated for Sound of Metal, co-wrote, produced and stars in a film about British-Pakistani rapper Zed, who’s felled by illness on the eve of his first world tour.
