Two more episodes are shown tonight – and in one of them, Leslie organizes a rally to try and save her favorite diner, with a “Save J.J.’s” campaign. Hey, I know how she feels – if I ever felt Egg N’ You in Ft. Lauderdale was threatened, or Twohey’s in Alhambra, or Ponzio’s in Cherry Hill, I’d be right there on the front lines…

The final season continues to build momentum. Tonight, it’s not only Raylan’s investigation that begins to deepen and darken, but also Boyd’s own problems, conflicts and adversaries. These include Mary Steenburgen, who’s having a field day, and so much fun playing against her usual sweet-as-can-be type, portraying Katherine Hale, a woman with an icy heart and a coldly calculating illegal business scheme to match. And wait, that’s not all: Here comes Sam Elliott&hell

Guess who’s coming to dinner? In tonight’s new episode, Jane (Gina Rodriguez) brings the biological father of her child home to meet the family – which, given the genesis of this particular pregnancy, makes for some very chilly conversation.

MINISERIES PREMIERE: A Path Appears is a three-part documentary series which looks at tough problems, but also profiles and offers potential solutions, using empathic celebrities, and New York Times columnist Nicholas Kristof, as attention-getting guides. Tonight’s Part 1 looks at sex trafficking – but, quite pointedly, focuses on the United States, looking at the problem, and how to combat it, in Boston, Nashville, and Chicago. It’s very heartening – and, quite often, re

In tonight’s episode, the second installment of this series, time-traveling Cole (Aaron Stanford) finds himself in the year 2015. I can’t say I’m particularly impressed – these days, I do that all the time.

One of tonight’s guests on this new outing is politician Howard Dean. Another is comedian Bill Burr (pictured), whose name may be less familiar – but who, on Monday’s premiere installment of Comedy Central’s The Nightly Show with Larry Wilmore, provided the strongest laughs at the discuss-the-issues roundtable. And now, on a different coast, here he is, sitting in on his second talk-show roundtable of the week.

How much more drama can this series dish out as its heads towards next week’s finale? Lots. And tonight, it has another character rushing to the hospital.This time it’s Amber (Mae Whitman), who’s in labor. And with the end of the series on the horizon, nothing can be taken for granted.

SEASON FINALE: Tonight’s episode is the culmination of the Freak Show story. But don’t freak, because American Horror Story, and many of the Freak Show cast members, will return next season with an all-new story.

Jay Baruchel continues his quest for happiness, and a new girlfriend, in this slyly surreal new comedy series. In tonight’s episode, he sets his sights on a total stranger, after a chance meeting with her on a train. She’s played by Vanessa Bayer – the latest Saturday Night Live player to pop in, courtesy of the fact that this series comes from Broadway Video, the compay run by SNL creator and producer Lorne Michaels.

SEASON PREMIERE: With Breaking Bad gone, this drama series from FX gets my vote as the best current series on television, and it starts its current (and final) season superbly. This final run gives Timothy Olyphant’s Raylan some more deliciously strong and unpredictable adversaries. One is played by veteran laconic tough guy Sam Elliott – and another, introduced in this Season 6 opener, is played by Garret Dillahunt (pictured), who was so good opposite Olyphant’s Seth Bullock i

When Things Were Rotten

ABC’s current miniseries Galavant has been a fun, musical spoof of the Robin Hood era. That’s been done before, although without the music, back in 1975, by Mel Brooks. When Things Were Rotten was very short-lived, lasting only 13 episodes – they're all included here, starring Dick Gautier as Robin, Dick Van Patten as Friar Tuck, and Misty Rowe as Maid Marian. Until now, this DVD release was one of the missing links in the Mel Brooks chain of outrageous comedy, so this compilation hits the bullseye. Under $20 at Amazon. –David Bianculli
