Zombie House Flipping

9 p.m. ET on A&E – Season Premiere

Millennial house flipper Justin Stamper has found a way to reclaim many of the rundown and abandoned structures widely found across his home state of Florida. This new home renovation series follows Justin and his Orlando-based team as they acquire some of these empty residences, which include poorly plumbed “McMansions” and a few other abodes that were jeopardized by an approaching sinkhole. Fixing up these zombie homes can pose a major challenge, but the “reanimated” results can fetch a handsome price.

Having had a baby, Star (Jude Demorest) manages to jeopardize nearly everything she has fought to achieve, while Simone (Brittany O’Grady) fights for her family as this music-driven nighttime soap returns from hiatus with “When Stars Fall,” the spring premiere. Elsewhere, Cassie (Brandy Norwood) puts her neck on the line to save her nephew, while Carlotta (Queen Latifah) finally opens up about a past trauma she has kept buried. Chad Michael Murray and Ben Vereen guest star; Ryan Destiny also stars.


You’re the Worst

10 p.m. ET on FXX

Gretchen (Aya Cash) navigates life by trying to project a facade that suggests she can handle anything that the world can throw at her.

Chris Geere, Desmin Borges and Kether Donohue also star.
