What’s on TV Sunday: The ESPY Awards and ‘The Woods’

THE 2020 ESPY AWARDS 9 p.m. on ESPN. While other award shows have been postponed or put on hold in the wake of the coronavirus pandemic, the ESPY Awards will go on this year, but not as usual. The show, which normally celebrates the year’s top athletes and moments in athletic achievement, will instead shift its focus to honoring humanitarian stories from the sports community. The Seattle Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson, the soccer star Megan Rapinoe and the W.N.B.A. champion Sue Bird will host the two-hour event remotely.

UNITED WE SING: A GRAMMY TRIBUTE TO THE UNSUNG HEROES 8 p.m. on CBS. This two-hour special follows Harry Connick Jr. and his daughter Georgia on an RV trip around the country to hear and celebrate the stories of essential workers during the coronavirus pandemic. The pair started from their home in Connecticut and snaked their way down to New Orleans. Along the way, the Connicks spoke with those who work in health care, food preparation, sanitation and trucking. The special also features performances from Trombone Shorty, Jon Batiste, Dave Matthews, Tim McGraw and Cyndi Lauper, among others.

THE CHI 9 p.m. on Showtime. Lena Waithe’s drama series set in Chicago’s South Side returns for a third season.
