TV picks for April 20-21: 'Ramy,' Prince, 'Motown 60: A Grammy Celebration'

Star Tribune |

--Hope and a prayer

Mining jokes out of growing up Muslim in America may seem like heavy lifting, but Ramy Youssef makes it look easy in his terrific new sitcom, “Ramy.” He plays a single, barely employed New Jerseyan trying to maneuver the dating scene without sacrificing his religious beliefs. Wholly original hilarity ensues. Fans of “Louie” and “Master of None” have a new must-see sitcom to add to their lists.

Sign of the times

Honor the memory of Prince, who passed away three years ago this weekend, with two back-to-back documentaries on the artist, starting with “Slave Trade: How Prince Re-Made the Music Business” with commentary from former bandmates and music historians.

Noon Saturday, AXS TV

Keep me hanging on

It’s unlikely that “Motown 60: A Grammy Celebration” will move you even half as much as the record label’s 25th anniversary bash -- you know, when Michael Jackson introduced his moonwalk to the masses. But Stevie Wonder, Diana Ross and Boys II Men will do their best to create all new memories in this special taped back in February.
