Last week’s episode made it look like the Earth was doomed… but Eleanor (Kristen Bell) comes up with a desperate last-ditch option, which requires the ultra-indecisive Chidi (William Jackson Harper) to formulate a plan to save the planet, under a very intense and literal deadline. Oh, well – whatever happens, at least there’s shrimp…

SERIES RETURN: The original Mad about You, starring Paul Reiser and Helen Hunt as the married Buchmans, premiered way, way back in 1992, and won Hunt a passel of Best Comedy Actress Emmys. The series ended in 1999, with a finale episode that took their newborn baby, Mabel, and flash-forwarded 22 years into the future, where a now-grown Mabel, played by Janeane Garofalo, had become a young filmmaker. Now, do a flash-forward in the real world 20 years after that finale. The series M

Don’t expect tonight’s episode to be full of happy happy joy joy. Its title comes from one of Leonard Cohen’s saddest songs: “So Long Marianne.”

SEASON PREMIERE: It doesn’t take long for Olivia Colman, who takes the baton from Seasons 1 and 2 star Claire Foy and inherits the starring role of Queen Elizabeth II, to hit the ground running. In fact, she establishes her royal command of the role instantly, in this new Season 3’s opening seconds. Foy was brilliant; Colman, as an elder version of the same complicated leader, is equally convincing and compelling. It may be the best tag-team acting since Robert De Niro and Marlon Bra

Jeremy Allen White’s Lip has an even more weighty responsibility, as the father of a new baby. One Gallagher leaves on Shameless, as Emmy Rossum’s Fiona did at the end of last season, and another one, a very tiny and needy one, takes her place.

Impeachment hearings on Wednesday, more impeachment hearings on Friday, and John Oliver on Sunday. Three unmissable politically charged TV events of this week – but only one of them will make you laugh. Or should.

SEASON PREMIERE: This drama was more dynamic and artistic when original series creator Frank Spotnitz was in charge – but its tale of alternate realities remains compelling, with Allies as the resistance, and the Germans and Japanese the victors, after WWII. The first season established the existence of films showing a different world, and world war outcome – and last season established a way to travel between those worlds. Now, as Season 4 begins, a year has passed since last season

This second episode of the new three-minute Forky Asks a Question series is called “What Is a Friend?,” and it should come with a warning: Beware of contagious catch phrases. Ever since Forky introduced his best friend, a ceramic Happy Face mug whom Forky introduces by the name of “Whaaaat?? Nooooooo!!,” I’m been unable to stop imitating that particular phrase. Watch and see, and hear why… Another instant Pixar classic.

Today’s new episode of this documentary series has Goldblum exploring his love of ice cream. He not only takes a ride on an ice cream truck, but at one point visits with some ice cream entrepreneurs, adding to a temporary trio called Jeff & Ben & Jerry.

MINISERIES FINALE: Jenna Coleman has been remarkable in this four-part mystery miniseries – and tonight, as the mystery is solved, she’s even better. And the ending, I promise, will stay with you for a long time. I saw this when it premiered on Sundance’s streaming service, Sundance Now, a year ago, and I’m still haunted by it.
