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.

ABC and CBS are burning off reruns during the opening hour of prime time tonight, prior to President Barack Obama’s State of the Union Address – but NBC is burning off its final season of Parks and Recreation with all delberate speed. Two episodes are shown back to back tonight.

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

This new Comedy Central series premiered last night – but tonight, the first show to be produced without oodles of advance preparation and second-guessing, is a more accurate representation of the show as it gets up to full speed. And for tonight’s show, Wilmore has selected an intentionally inflammatory central topic: Bill Cosby. For my full review of the series premiere, listen to today’s Fresh Air with Terry Gross on NPR or visit the Fresh Air website.

When a hurricane bears down on the resort hotel, Jane (Gina Rodriguez) is forced to stay at the Marbella – and the proximity to everyone else at the hotel, especially its owner, makes things complicated.

Tonight’s episodes are likely to be buried alongside the football game tonight – but for the record, the guest stars of this evening’s episodes include “Weird Al” Yankovic and Ricky Gervais.

Lady Violet (Maggie Smith) gets a blast from her past tonight – one that sheds some light into a hidden corner of her past, when she was young, and smitten by what she considered a sort of forbidden love. Details to follow… and they’re delicious. Check local listings.

NEW SEASON PREMIERE: Like Downton Abbey, this series crosses the Atlantic after being seen in the United Kingdom, but with a fan base on both sides of the ocean eager for more episodes, whenever they’re delivered. Netflix, which added Season 1 of The Fall to its roster not too long ago, beginning today provides the entirety of the just-completed Season 2. Gillian Anderson continues her role as Stella, the investigator heading the hunt for serial killer Paul (Jamie Dornan), whose identity s

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
