This week, the guest host is Emma Thompson, who brings more versatility and talent, as well as more of a sense of humor, than most actors who step on the SNL center stage. Musical guests: the Jonas Brothers.

MINISERIES PREMIERE: This four-part look at the Wu-Tang Clan traces the history, influences and legacy one of hip-hop’s most defining artistic collectives. If you don’t know your RZA from your GZA, or even how to pronounce those particular performers and Clan members (and especially if you do), give this series a try. Other members, of course, include Ghostface Killah, Method Man and Ol’ Dirty Bastard.

In Part 5 of this abbreviated 10-part series (each episode is about a dozen minutes long), it becomes clear that all the therapy sessions we haven’t been watching between Tom (Chris O’Dowd) and Louise (Rosamund Pike) – in State of the Union, we see only the period before each session – haven’t helped them resolve their conflicts and issues. In fact, as we start tonight’s installment, Tom has moved out.

Tonight’s episode is called “Dead Lift,” and has Liv (Rose McIver) continuing to look into the murder case with the missing body. The difference this week is that she’s doing it after sampling the brains, and absorbing the personality, of a fitness guru. So whatever steps she takes this week to solve the crime, expect plenty of reps.

SERIES PREMIERE: Even before it premieres, attention must be paid. In an advance segment promoted and sampled for this new Comedy Central series, host Jordan Klepper, a savvy Daily Show alum, invited the Clintons to sit down with him and have the former First Lady, senator and presidential candidate read, while her former President husband watched with glee, from the Mueller report, as though she were recording an audio book of a horror story. I’m not certain whether that’s part of t

SEASON PREMIERE: Why shouldn’t biblical characters be able to enjoy new life, and be revived after a brief period of dormancy? Lucifer, the satanic character and his Fox TV series, were canceled after three seasons. But Netflix stepped in and picked up Lucifer for a Season 4, resurrecting the show. And if you can stand one more biblical reference, this new season introduces one of the very first characters from the Old Testament: Eve, played by Inbar Lavi, who joins Lucifer (Tom Ellis) in

At the end of last week’s show, there was a surprise incendiary ending: The vampire clan leader was accidentally sunlit to death. Tonight’s show, written by Flight of the Conchords co-star and Shadows co-creator Jemaine Clement, is called “The Trial.” It may be devoted to the consequences of last week’s unexpected conflagration – but at any event, according to FX, promises to be loaded with surprise guest stars, who may or may not be under some of those hoods.

In tonight’s new episode, Gabby finds out she’s pregnant, then finds out her wife is cheating on her. If that sounds like a new spin on an otherwise common plot, try this: In order to console Gabby, his broadcast booth partner, Brockmire puts himself in the unlikely role of sympathizer.

Delayed from last week, this hour is scheduled to be about Ted Kennedy, Chappaquiddick and Mary Jo Kopechne – respectively, the politician driving the car that veered off a bridge and overturned in the water, the place of the accident, and the drowning victim who was the car’s only other passenger.
