Some of today’s biggest names in music celebrate a turning point in the career of Elvis Presley, John Oliver returns for another season of wringing comedy (and occasional pathos) from today’s headlines, and a couple of awards shows wedge themselves into the TV schedule before next week’s Academy Awards.
