DON’T MISS: “The 75th Annual Golden Globe Awards” – We don’t envy host Seth Meyers. Normally, this celebration of the year’s best movies and TV shows is a fun, free-wheeling and booze-filled bash. But as Hollywood continues to be rocked by claims of sexual harassment and assault, it’s unclear how current events will affect the proceedings. Of course, a sense of unpredictability often can make for good TV. 5 p.m. Sunday, NBC.
