Last week, Jeremy Irons was creepy personified as the sadistic villain – one of them – in this new iteration of the Watchmen saga. And this week, we get to know another new character, this time a law-enforcement official played by Jean Smart, who’s already added even more triumphs to her resume thanks to her recent role on FX’s Legion.Now comes another genre series and part, and I expect her to do great things here as well…

SERIES FINALE: Last week, a sudden turn of events threatened to claim the life of Maura Tierney’s Helen. It was a snakebite, suffered while hiking on a mountain trail – but she was with Noah (Dominic West), who got her to the hospital on time. In other words, the former snake Noah, who propelled this entire series with his illicit affair with Ruth Wilson’s alluring waitress Alison, is back at the bedside of the wife he betrayed. It’s just in time for tonight’s serie

Kathryn Hahn is really, really good as the empty-nest single mother in Tom Perrotta’s HBO adaptation of his own novel. At the end of last week’s premiere, she enrolled in an adult-education class, where one of the other students was a young man formerly bullied in school by her son. And as the final scene faded to the credits, she was flirting with the idea of flirting with that much younger man…

SPECIAL PREVIEW: In 2020, BBC America will present Sir David Attenborough’s new nature series, Seven Worlds, One Planet, with even more of the astounding visuals and soothing narrative voices we’ve come to expect. But tonight, the network provides a special sneak preview… easily the night’s very best bet.

Two years ago, when Kristen Stewart hosted SNL for the first time, she pulled a Charles Rocket and accidentally dropped the F-bomb. (Don’t recognize the name of Charles Rocket? That’s sort of the point.) But Stewart, who’s about to be featured as one of the stars of the latest movie reboot of Charlie’s Angels, is a big enough star to overcome her F***ing faux pas, and is scheduled to host tonight, again. Musical guest: Coldplay.

SERIES PREMIERE: The entire Apple TV+ streaming service launches today. All the programming is brand new, but much of it, at the outset, is decidedly average. Of the initial offerings, the best is this new series from Battlestar Galactica reimaginer Ronald D. Moore. Once again, he’s reimagining things. This time, in a drama starring Joel Kinnaman as a 1960s U.S. astronaut, For All Mankind presents an alternate world history in which the Soviets won the space race by lan

The one-non-Halloweeny offering mentioned in tonight’s Best Bets is this new final-season episode of The Good Place, titled “A Chip Driver Mystery.”  But perhaps, given the hellish twists and turns this Michael Schur sitcom has served up so far, maybe it fits the night’s theme, and mood, after all.
