The singer’s comeback album, “Purpose,” is likely to debut at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 albums chart — though it’s in a close race with One Direction’s “Made In the A.M.” Both albums were released Nov. 13, and Billboard will announce the news Sunday. The Lion Guard: Return of the Roar: This TV movie is a followup to the 1994 Lion King film and its 1998 sequel, The Lion King II: Simba’s Pride, and the start of a TV series that will debut on Disney Junior in 2016.American Music Awards (8 p.m., ABC) – Jennifer Lopez hosts the award show and is also expected to perform, along with 5 Seconds of Summer, Selena Gomez, Carrie Underwood, One Direction, Nick Jonas, Demi Lovato and Walk on the Moon.Taylor Swift, Ed Sheeran and The Weeknd lead the pack of nominees vying for the 2015 American Music Awards, to be announced Sunday at Los Angeles’ Microsoft Theatre. The show, hosted by Jennifer Lopez, will feature other A-listers, too: Carrie Underwood, Coldplay, Ariana Grande, Selena Gomez, Gwen Stefani and Luke Bryan will perform.

Brooklyn Nine-Nine (8:30 p.m., Fox) – Terry’s wife goes into labor sooner than expected, and an internet outage forces Charles and Amy to process all paperwork by hand. If Swift wins all the categories in which she is nominated, she could top the late Whitney Houston as the American Music Awards’ top all-time female winner. One Direction, who will also hit the stage, is nominated for artist of the year, pitting the group against Grande, Bryan, Nicki Minaj and Taylor Swift. Simba (Rob Lowe), Nala (Gabrielle Union), Timon (Kevin Schon), Rafiki (Khary Payton), Zazu (Jeff Bennett) and Kiara (Eden Riegel) are also along for the ride.

Swift has had the most successful year of the bunch, thanks to her top-selling album “1989” and hits like “Bad Blood” and “Black Space.” She is the leading AMAs nominee with six. They’re loaded with performances, including Toronto R&B sensation the Weeknd, who’s nominated for five prizes; Ariana Grande, Coldplay, One Direction, Justin Bieber, Carrie Underwood, Nick Jonas and many more. Utilizing both archival footage and more recent interviews, award-winning filmmaker Thom Zimny showcases Bruce Springsteen’s first-person take on the creation of his landmark double album The River, which was released in 1980.

Chef Mark McEwan and TIFF artistic director Cameron Bailey are the guest judges. (CBC at 8) The Walking Dead: If I divulge any spoilers AMC will sic a pack of zombies on me, but trust me when I say you’ll want to catch this Sunday’s episode, particularly the first few minutes. Beyond that, Rick’s group and the Alexandrians finally start to sort out their complicated relationship, but a new development puts everyone in jeopardy. (AMC at 9) Drain the Bermuda Triangle: Documentarian Wayne Abbott, who used computer animation to virtually drain the ocean water around the wreck of the Titanic, does the same for the part of the Atlantic known as the Bermuda Triangle, where numerous planes and ships have disappeared over the years. (Discovery at 9) Trevor Noah: Lost in Translation: If seeing Noah four nights a week on The Daily Show isn’t enough for you, you can check out this one-hour special, in which the South African comedian shares his world view and perspective on American culture via standup, including thoughts on “terrorism, racial tensions in America and his experiences travelling in the United States as an African during the Ebola crisis.” (Comedy Network at 10) The Passionate Eye: Terrorism is obviously top of mind for many with the recent events in Paris, Beirut and Mali. The documentaryWarriors From the North follows three young Muslim men born to immigrant parents in Denmark who go to Somalia to fight with the terrorist group Al-Shabaab.

It also tells the story of a young man known as “The Shadow” who explains how militant groups like Al-Shabaab make “holy war” seem so appealing to boys like him. (CBCNN at 10) First up is a look back at the 1960s, when a live Christmas Eve broadcast from Apollo 8 astronauts offered a bit of hope in a world that was navigating through turbulent times. After seven weeks of competition, seven finalists – including a rapper, a YouTube performer, a winemaker, an engineering student, an IT security executive, a CFL player and a teacher – return to vie for the crown. This hour-long special gives viewers a behind-the-scenes look at the teamwork required to create The Wiz Live!, which stars Queen Latifah, David Alan Grier and Shanice Williams, and will air on Dec. 3.

Airing on The Nature if Things, this doc explores something called “rewilding.” As more and more fields turn into ugly housing developments every day, “rewilding” is a radical environmental movement that believes we should be doing more than trying to conserve what’s left of the wild. But as this competition series returns – with Brad Smith, formerly of The Bachelor Canada, as the new host – 16 of Canada‘s best teen chefs will battle over five episodes.
