The following sentence is grammatically correct?
I have been moved to tears by watching the TV show where people are not afraid to stand up for what is right.

Most would say it was OK, but I was taught 'where' can only refer to a place, so I would prefer: I have been moved to tears by watching the TV show in which people are not afraid to stand up for what is right.

Yes ... it's 'grammatically' correct, but I would leave out ''by'' and pluralise ''show''.
I have been moved to tears watching TV shows where people are not afraid to stand up for what is right

Yes, but usually in English one would say "I am moved to tears..." Your sentence is grammatically correct, but somewhat clunky, unless you mean "I was, and have not been since [some time in the past]".

but I think either of these would be better
- ...from watching the TV show in which...
- ...by the TV show in which...

It would make more sense to say "watching TV shows". There's more than one show, right?

Yes, but you might consider replacing "where" with "about."
