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.

Well, it’s taken a very long time, but the impressive reign of The Big Bang Theory is about to end. This is the penultimate episode, “The Maternal Conclusion,” which is smart enough to make room for one of the show’s most entertaining recurring guest stars: Christine Baranski as Leonard’s mom, Beverly.

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.

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.
