The serialized nature of this series, telling an ongoing story about the evolving – or devolving – relationship between “Billy Crystal” and “Josh Gad” – is what may keep viewers tuned. The writing won’t help, but the performers will, so if you like the real Crystal and/or Gad, stay tuned to watch how they poke fun at their own images.

On tonight’s very funny episode, Louie (Louis C.K.) hosts an open mic night – but not before falling victim to one of the toughest challenges the average New York city street has to offer: finding a handy place to go to the bathroom.

Part 2. “Location, Location, Location” is the title of this week’s episode, which examines not only why animals build or occupy the homes they do, from bear caves to bird nests, but also the reasons behind where they exist. Check local listings.

Tonight’s Nova takes a chicken-and-egg approach to the major mathematical theorems of the universe. Which came first, the principles of math or the fabrics of the universe? Why do so many elements in nature feature designs based on identical mathematical properties and proportions? It’s certainly a question worth pondering. And about that chicken egg, anyway… Check local listings.

We’ve arrived at that point – another penultimate episode for another season of another excellent TV drama. This time it’s The Americans – and this time, it features the return of a long-missing, long-missed character: Margo Martindale as Soviet handler Claudia.

Alex Anfanger and Lenny Jacobson have their filmmaking dreams back on track, even if it is a very bumpy railroad. And tonight, the scheme they employ to help them advance their dreams is a risky visit to Cuba. That is, to Cuba Gooding Jr., playing a very antic version of himself.

SERIES PREMIERE: Paul Feig, creator of Freaks and Geeks, wrote the original pilot script for this new Yahoo series about a decade ago, for NBC. They never produced it, but Feig – whose TV habits as a kid included not only Lost in Space, but even such ultra-obscure space-age comedies as Quark – always had a soft spot for his sci-fi comedy idea, and recently revived and rewrote it for Yahoo. And Yahoo: The entire Season 1 is available now by finding and watching Yahoo Screen. The stars

TCM has been my default channel almost since the day of its launch – the place I keep my TV tuned when it’s at rest, or when I’m restless. For two decades, I’ve enjoyed the comfort of watching TCM host Robert Osborne introduce old movies and interview veteran actors and directors – and tonight, Osborne moves into the center spotlight seat, and deservedly so, for this one-hour tribute. And he didn’t even know it was coming: Osborne was ambushed, in true classic
