One thought on “‘The Crown,’ ‘The Real Housewives of Salt Lake City,’ ‘Grey’s Anatomy,’ and everything else you don’t want to miss on TV this week

  1. One more viewing suggestion: On Friday, Great Performances is airing a wonderful documentary, Fiddler: A Miracle of Miracles (8 p.m., PBS). This is the origin story about that internationally beloved musical about a Jewish milkman and his five daughters living in a shtetl in czarist Russia. Very heart-warming. (And if you can’t wait, the film is already streaming on Amazon Prime and kanopy.)
