SEASON FINALE: The acting in this Fox series, about a serial murderer and his son, has been better than the writing. But if you’ve stuck with it this far, at least you’ve made it to the end of Season 1. Will there be a Season 2? The odds are good, but these days, little on broadcast TV can be taken for granted.

Like another HBO series, Watchmen, this series gets better, and showcases additional strong performers and performances, each week. His Dark Materials is not in the same league as Watchmen, but it’s rapidly defining the players and strategies on its particular chess board.

In tonight’s episode, the title character (played so winningly by Kathryn Hahn) gets distracted by a series of increasingly frank and sexy texts – which may or may not be coming from the former high-schooler who was tormented not so long ago by her bullying son.

This long-running arts interview program, hosted for about a quarter-century by James Lipton, has moved from Bravo to Ovation, and Lipton, while remaining involved with the show, has turned over on-air duties to a series of guest hosts. Tonight, that guest host is Kelsey Grammer, and his guest is James Burrows, the best TV comedy director of a couple of television generations now. Not only did he direct Grammer in all of Frasier, and Cheers before that, but Burrows other prominent

Here’s another example of why Graham Norton continues to reign over television’s most entertaining and genuine talk show. By bringing his guests on all at the same time, he allows for moments of true spontaneity, and interactions you won’t witness anywhere else. Tonight’s guests include Elizabeth Banks, Ricky Gervais and singer Kylie Minogue, all of whom have been on Norton’s show before – but not together. In her most recent appearance, Banks was surprised wh

SERIES PREMIERE: I don’t have the slightest idea why Apple TV+ didn’t include this spooky new M. Night Shyamalan series when the streaming service launched earlier this month, because it’s better than The Morning Show or anything else the service has offered thus far. Well, actually, that may explain it, because had Servant rolled out with all the other new Apple TV+ shows November 1, it would have eclipsed them all. I don’t have an explanation, though

DOCUMENTARY SPECIAL: This hour on ocean pollution, and other effects of non-biodegradable plastics, comes from the PBS NewsHour team, and comes armed with enough images and statistics that it attention should be paid. Here’s just one statistic I can’t shake: by some estimates, by the year 2050 there will be more plastic in the ocean than fish. I don’t know whether that’s by number or tonnage – but either way, it’s dead wrong. Check local listing

Bob and Abishola aren’t even a couple yet, and already they’re part of a potential romantic triangle. An old suitor of Abishola’s, played by Tony Tambi, re-enters the picture, asking Abishola for a second chance. How can Bob compete – or can he?

In this week’s episode, we finally spend time with two long-awaited elements of this HBO series: the armor-plated polar bear, and the intrepid adventurer played by Lin-Manuel Miranda. Only one of them arrives courtesy of CGI special effects – but rest assured. So long as I’m aware, no Lin-Manuel Mirandas were hurt in the making of this TV show.
