This end-of-year New Year’s Eve special features, among others, talk show super-guest Tom Hanks… along with Matthew Rhys and many others.

Sundays on TV never will be as quiet as this one: Television critics call it “dead week” for a reason. Most weekly shows between Christmas and New Year’s Day are in repeats or on hiatus. Ray Donovan is one of the few shows stubbornly plowing on with an original episode: and tonight, here it is.

It’s not unusual for, me to recommend Saturday Night Live as a Saturday Best Bet – but that’s normally when it’s a new late-night episode. This is an old episode, and it’s not in late night: It’s a cut-down, 60-minute version of a program from six years ago, presented in prime time. But this is the episode from Dec. 21, 2013, with Jimmy Fallon as guest host and Justin Timberlake as musical guest. You get a holiday installment of “Bring It on Do

NONFICTION MINISERIES PREMIERE: The title of this latest Netflix offering might lead you to believe that it’s another raucous Kevin Hart standup comedy special.  Instead, Kevin Hart: Don’t F*** This Up (asterisks mine, not Netflix’s) is a six-part documentary, profiling and following the comedian as he addresses his many controversies while traversing the rocky trail through stardom and pop-culture moguldom.

SEASON PREMIERE: Season 1 of this series, which stars Penn Badgley as a bookstore manager and serial stalker – and, like the title character of Dexter, an occasional murderer with an ongoing interior monologue – was shown on Lifetime. You and Badgley return for Season 2, but on Netflix instead.

One of the most compelling and mysterious characters from the original series The L Word was Shane, played by Katherine Moennig. Moennig just left Ray Donovan, where she played the role of Ray’s private eye assistant Lena, to co-star on this other Showtime drama, a modern sequel to The L Word. And tonight, much of the episode focuses on Shane, whom Moennig is portraying once again. "Shane! Come back, Shane!" And she has...

Wade, the widower father played so winningly in this sitcom by Walton Goggins, gets to act happier than he probably in his combined previous TV roles altogether – and that’s taking into account his work, in toto, on The Shield, Justified, and Sons of Anarchy. Tonight, Wade, who has been reluctant and wary when urged by friends to re-enter the dating pool, experiences his first crush since his wife died. Remember the big deal, when Greta Garbo went from silent film

This week’s cross-promotional CW superhero mini-miniseries, “Crisis on Infinite Earths,” which began yesterday on Supergirl, continues tonight on Batwoman. Then it continues tomorrow night on The Flash – the TV equivalent of a storyline stretching across the titles of several comic books from the same company.

SEASON PREMIERE: This Emmy-winning Amazon series returns for a new season at full speed, with a big splash, and with a Season 3 opener that had me laughing out loud several times during the hour. The setting, for most of it, is a USO tour performance, for which the still-on-the-rise Mrs. Maisel (Rachel Brosnahan, nailing every single scene) takes the stage in front of a gaggle of fevered servicemen, and charms them. Series creator Amy Sherman-Palladino both writes and directs the opener, which a
