Here’s what’s happening in the world of television for Monday, March 1. All times are Eastern. 


Top pick

Ruth: Justice Ginsburg In Her Own Words (Starz, 9 p.m., premiere): It’s been a little over five months since the death of Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg (though it may feel a lot longer—pandemic time just ain’t like regular time).

Regular coverage

The Bachelor (ABC, 8 p.m.)
Snowpiercer (TNT, 9 p.m.)

Wild cards

Debris (NBC, 10:01 p.m., series premiere): NBC scratches its sci-fi series itch with this new drama from Fringe’s J.H.
