SEASON FINALE: In this final new episode of the first season, Liv (Rose McIver) has to protect her brother, who’s unwittingly become involved with her evil zombie nemesis. Meanwhile, as usual, she’s got a case to solve, which means another diet of memory-tapping brains.

There are people out there, especially college students and younger, who have yet to experience Woody Allen’s 1977 comedy even once. Here’s a convenient chance to rectify that situation, and to watch, and record, one of the best and most inventive movie comedies ever made. And with all the comedy, there’s loads of heart, too – as when Diane Keaton, as the title character, sings in her nightclub debut.

Last Sunday at the Peabody Awards, Tina Fey showed up as an unannounced special guest to introduce Amy Schumer, who was being awarded with a Peabody for Inside Amy Schumer. On this repeat from earlier this season, Fey made another surprise appearance – in a tea-party sketch about aging female entertainers, and how they’re perceived by Hollywood and the media. It’s called “Last F***able Day” – and it’s brilliant.

Tonight’s guests will have a lot to say about comedy.

SEASON PREMIERE: Steven Bochco’s new series, co-produced with Eric Lodal, begins a new season – which means, as with the likes of True Detective and Fargo, the start of a new season-long story. This one begins with an attack on a particularly vulnerable target: a school bus.

Lily Rabe is good in the series lead here, as an investigator who relates especially well to children. But after watching the reworked series premiere of The Whispers, I wasn’t particularly drawn into watching more.

Yesterday, American Pharaoh completed a race to destiny by becoming the first Triple Crown winner since 1978. Today, at the 2015 French Open, Novak Djokovic gets a shot at attaining some sports destiny of his own, with a chance to complete his personal Grand Slam by winning, at long last, the French Open. But even after beating his long-time dominant clay-court rival, Rafael Nadal, in this year’s tournament, and taking two days to defeat semifinal opponent Andy Murray, Djokovic still has o
