This is the first edition of The Circus after Tuesday’s midterm election – so there’s an awful lot to show, and the behind-the-scenes drama is still being played out, on many fronts. And in many back rooms, and on just as many protest lines…

This is the first episode without Andrew Lincoln as Rick Grimes, who left at the end of  last week’s installment very nearly dead – but who, it seems, destined to live, to fight another day (and be featured, reports have it, in a series of Walking Dead movies). And Negan managed to live as well – so what happens from now on? That’s the big question, and the focus of tonight’s episode.

Last night, Liev Schreiber demonstrated his versatility as an actor, working his way through a series of convincingly and impressively different accents, looks and characters as the guest host of Saturday Night Live. In one sketch alone, when Kate McKinnon was cracking him up with her antics, he smiled more than he has on Ray Donovan since its inception. Watch tonight’s episode, and play a drinking game: Every time Ray smiles, take a shot. You’ll go to bed sober – and thirsty.

SEASON FINALE: This Jim Carrey series has gotten darker every episode – so for the season finale, expect about 50 shades of grey.

This is one of TV’s best and smartest shows, and it’s a worthwhile and often educational viewing experience no matter the week’s topic. But after the midterm election, my expectations are especially high...

It’s a slow night – but I can use a little slow these days, even on my TV. So the only thing on TV I’m pointing out today is the new installment of SNL, with guest host, and Ray Donovan star, Liev Schreiber (whose first name I cannot type without my computer auto-incorrecting it to “Live”). Musical guest: Lil Wayne.

SEASON PREMIERE: Another season gets added today to Netflix’s pantry of British Baking Show programs – a newer season, and thus not one of the classic and generally more beloved ones, but it arrives nonetheless. And this week, Netflix also added the show’s “origin” episodes, the very first season, called The Beginnings. So either way, new or old, if you’re fond of fondants, here you go again…

Tonight’s scheduled roundtable guests are political strategist Cornell Belcher, BBC news anchor Katty Kay, and columnist Bret Stephens. And wait, that’s not all, not by any means: the midshow guest is Sarah Silverman, and Maher’s opening guest is author Bob Woodward (pictured).

SEASON PREMIERE: Series creators Mark and Jay Duplass are back with another season of this wide-ranging anthology series, whose common thread is a particular room in a particular, somewhat seedy motel. Except for flashbacks, everything takes place in that titular Room 104, and each time an episode (or the door) opens, you never know quite what you’re about to witness. Which is a large part of the fun here. Two new episodes are shown each Friday by HBO, starting tonight.

MINISERIES PREMIERE: Increasingly, more and more cable and network services are presenting streaming sister sites, which require monthly fees to watch – and as these services stack up, it takes more and more persuasion, and at least one really, really good TV show, to entice people to sample that service and add it to their viewing list (and monthly bill). In my opinion, today the Sundance Now streaming service does just that, by presenting a new four-part imported British miniseries calle

The Crown: Season One Box Set

It’s the royal wedding season after all, so grab your top hat or fascinator and join in this popular Netflix original chronicling the life of Queen Elizabeth II (Claire Foy) from her ascension to the throne at the age of 25 to modern times. With her reign at 66 years and counting, there’s a lot of territory to cover, and four seasons are planned. On sale at Amazon for $17. Remember, no smiling and wave only with the wrist. –Eric Gould
