The Ticket: Television

SUNDAY

MILEY CYRUS: BANGERZ TOUR
9 p.m., NBC

If you heard all the hullabaloo surrounding the pop star’s recent tour, here’s a chance to watch Cyrus and her band of furries traipsing across the globe — including a backstage look at stops in Barcelona and Lisbon — without having to buy a ticket.

MONDAY

THE ’90s: LAST GREAT DECADE?
9 p.m., NATIONAL GEOGRAPHIC CHANNEL

It’s hard to tell if NatGeo is trying to say the ’00s were a wash with that title, but it is excited about this series that looks back at the high and the low social, political, and cultural points of the alt-rock decade. This installment includes the infamous Tonya Harding-Nancy Kerrigan knee-clubbing scandal.

TUESDAY

CELEBRITY WIFE SWAP 10 p.m., ABC

Here’s a name you probably haven’t heard in a while, unless you’ve been listening to Tom Petty’s “Jammin’ Me”: Joe Piscopo. The former Not Ready For Prime Time Player with the killer Sinatra impression does the old ball-and-chain switcheroo with Barry “Greg Brady” Williams.

WEDNESDAY

EXTANT 9 p.m., CBS

Oscar winner Halle Berry comes to TV in this new Steven Spielberg-produced sci-fi drama. She stars as an astronaut who blasts off for a 13-month solo mission, but returns from space pregnant. We’re thinking an alien’s got some ’splainin’ to do to Berry’s husband, played by former “ER” hunk Goran Visnjic.

Burlington native Amy Poehler executive produces — and has a cameo appearance in — this new comedy starring her younger brother Greg, also a producer. The show finds the sweet-natured, Kinnear-esque Greg Poehler as Barry, an accountant giving up his successful life in New York City to live with his girlfriend — and her wacky, kind-of-mean family — in Sweden.

FRIDAY

GIRL MEETS WORLD
8:30 p.m., DISNEY

How many times did they say “world” in that pilot? We get it, it’s a whole new “World.” A new fantastic point of view. And although we have our doubts about that literal son-of-Minkus “Farkle” character, we’re still going to give this sequel to “Boy Meets World” another chance in the hopes of seeing how Alan (William Russ) and Amy Matthews (Betsy Randle) are coping with grandparenthood.

SATURDAY

THE GRAHAM NORTON SHOW
11 p.m., BBC AMERICA

“The Monuments Men” was not a huge success in the movie theaters, but the film’s costars obviously had fun together, as evidenced by Bostonian Matt Damon, comic acting legend Bill Murray, and everyone’s favorite “Downton Abbey” nobleman, Hugh Bonneville, yukking it up with the cheeky Brit host. Paloma Faith provides the tunes.
