“Veep” (8:30 p.m., HBO) - Selina helps monitor the first free and democratic election in the former Soviet republic of Georgia. I’m sure that will go smoothly.  

“American Crime” (9 p.m., ABC, Season Finale) - Kimara counsels Dustin to tell the police about the crime that occurred in the Webcam house. Meanwhile, Clair and Nicholas profess their innocence to detectives. 

“Gotham,” (7 p.m., Fox) - The Court of Owls devises a new plan regarding the future of Gotham; Gordon uncovers information about his father’s and uncle’s past; and Bruce wakes up in the temple and learns of the Shaman’s wish for him. 

“Warning: This Drug May Kill You” (8 p.m., HBO) - A look at opiod addiction in the U.S. profiles four families whose lives have been decimated by drug abuse that began with legitimate prescriptions to dangerous painkillers. 

“Victorian Slum House” (7 p.m., PBS, Series Premiere) - The series, which features modern-day people recreating 19th century life in London’s East End, begins with participants moving into an 1860s tenement that includes sparse rooms, a shared water pump and outdoor privies. It’s basically, “Survivor: Victorian Era Edition.” 

“Below Deck Mediterranean” (7 p.m., Bravo, Season Premiere) - Seven new shipmates join returning crew members Hannah and Bobby as the luxury yacht Sirocco sets sail in the season two premiere. After “Top Chef,” this is my favorite Bravo series. 

“The Goldbergs” (7 p.m., ABC) - The TV movie “The Day After” freaks out Barry, who attempts to convince Murray to build an underground bunker. I’m old enough to remember when that Jason Robards led film came out in 1980s. It freaked me out too! I feel ya Barry! 

“Survivor: Game Changers” (7 p.m., CBS) - This season has been about as unpredictable as what Debbie says she does for a living. Great blindsides and drama so far and I have no idea who's going to win. I’ll be glued to my TV until the end of the season. 

“Superstore” (7:30 p.m., NBC, Season Finale) - In the series two finale Glenn tries to figure out which employees to lay off; Jonah copes with the fallout of an admission he made to Amy; and Mateo creates an alliance to keep his job. 

“The Amazing Race” (9 p.m., CBS) - The race continues in Venice, Italy. Amazingly all three contestants from Colorado are still in the race. In fact they all finished either first or second during the last leg. 

“First Dates” (7 p.m., NBC) - One couple’s mutual misunderstanding of a romance language leads to sparks while another dater is shocked to find out her match is already a fan of hers.  

“Shark Tank” (8 p.m., ABC) - U.S. Army veterans from Chicago hope to empower farmers in a war-torn country by helping them cultivate and harvest saffron. Other pitches include an undershirt that prevents embarrassing sweat stains and a belt buckle that doubles as a wallet.   

“Batman and Bill” (Hulu) - Everyone thinks that Bob Kane created Batman, but that’s not the whole truth. One author makes it his crusade to seek justice for Bill Finger, a struggling writer who was the key figure in creating the iconic superhero, from concept to costume to the very character we all know and love. 

“Sully” (6:20 p.m., HBO) - This inspiring biopic of airline pilot Chelsey “Sully” Sullenberger depicts his successful emergency landing of an Airbus A320 on the Hudson River in January 2009.
