Tonight’s new dates feature more returning characters, who haven’t given up on dating entirely yet. In the first of this evening’s two episodes, Stephen and Mia (Ben Chaplin, Oona Chaplin) agree to meet for another date – but she’s a no-show, leading to another dating adventure entirely. And in the second episode, Jenny (Sheridan Smith) decides to try, try again, and go out on another date with a guy she met online: this time, a guy named Christian (Andrew Scott), w

Tonight’s new episode is called “Terrorism at Home and Abroad” – and it’s kind of amazing, when you start tallying up all of the domestic and international terrorist incidents that occurred in the Seventies, how frequent and brazen they were. And it’s all recounted here, from the kidnaping of Patty Hearst by the Symbionese Liberation Army to the rash of airline hijackings that led to intensified airport security, and from dozens of bombings by the anti-war Wea

In this episode, Johnny Rock (Denis Leary) learns that his reformed band, now with his daughter as lead singer, is popular again – just not in this country.

On one of their final shows, Jon Stewart and his staff gleefully get to geek out: Tonight’s guest is J.J. Abrams, who’s not only a producer of the new Mission Impossible film, but is responsible for the reboots of both the Star Trek and Star Wars cinematic franchises.

It’s bad enough I have to mourn the impending retirement of Jon Stewart from The Daily Show. Now I have to watch Key & Peele, another Comedy Central mainstay, knowing that this is that show’s final season as well. So how am I supposed to laugh now? Simple: Just tune in. Their sketch about teachers being revered as athletes is something plenty of people have imagined – but only these guys presented that hypothetical via a SportsCenter academic equivalent.

On tonight’s episode, Elliot (Rami Malek) helps plan a prison break. He’s reluctant at first – but if the people around Elliot know anything, and they do, it’s how to push his buttons. And not just the ones on his computer keyboard. And he's not the only character being pushed into a corner...

On tonight’s episode, Bruce’s parents, Patrick Duffy and Illeana Douglas, come to visit – and Greg goes skiing, which is not one of his strengths. Greg Poehler stars.

The three primary law-enforcement characters, at this point, are working together in an undercover capacity – but with other motives, and perhaps other bosses, as well, at least in one case. My main problem with this season of True Detective? The characters are always saying exactly what’s on their minds, which rarely happens in real life. Or really good dramas.

SERIES PREMIERE: Members of Boston Emergency Services – the same group of first responders who dealt with the Boston Marathon bombing – are followed, and their actions chronicles, in this new summer nonfiction series from ABC.

Now burning out its final episodes on its new, lower-profile night, Hannibal wastes no time in passing the time. Between the events of last week’s episode and tonight’s, several years have passed, and Hannibal has been in prison – where, tonight, his expertise is sought out in dealing with a dangerous killer. Sound familiar? It should. It’s the plot presented in Red Dragon and Manhunter, the dramas set before the action in The Silence of the Lambs.

Drunk History: Seasons 1 and 2

Take history experts, ply them with lots of alcohol, take the soundtrack of their sloshy, often erratic discussions of their subject, have A-list talent lip-synch and perform the whole thing in costume, and what have you got? Drunk History, of course. Conceived and hosted by Derek Waters (who is usually pouring by the tall glass for the narrators), DH is a recurring TVWW guilty pleasure and leads viewers across the country to learn the inebriated history of American cities, including Chicago, Detroit and Hollywood. (The tale of Mary Dyer against the Massachusetts Quakers starring Winona Ryder and Michael Cera is gold.) 18 episodes here, including outtakes, extended scenes and “Sober Reveals," all under $15 at Amazon. —Eric Gould
