Basically, besides whatever coverage of local fireworks you have in your city tonight, there are three choices on national TV networks.
First choice of TV Critic Robert Bianco of USA Today, is A Capitol Fourth (8 ET/PT), on your local PBS station. The 90-minute show from Washington, D.C. features Aretha Franklin, Michael Feinstein, Barry Manilow, the casts of Jersey Boys and Sesame Street, and the National Symphony Orchestra. The host is Jimmy Smits.
After that choice, Bianco likes both the Macy’s 4th of July Fireworks Spectacular (9 ET/PT) on your local NBC station, or the Boston Pops Fireworks Spectacular (10 ET/PT) on your local CBS station. The Macy show has singer Kenny Chesney, the Pops show has singer Neil Diamond.
