Couples Therapy

10 p.m. on SHOWTIME – Series Premiere

The creative team behind this new docu-series hope viewers can set aside the nonsense they’re used to seeing on reality shows about love and dating while watching their nine-episode weekly series, which they insist is “true documentary filmmaking.” Each episode takes the format of therapy sessions with four couples, with therapist Dr. Orna Guralnik guiding couples through a complex minefield of confrontations with each other, as well as personal epiphanies.


The UnXplained

10:03 p.m. on HISTORY – Season Finale

Host William Shatner closes out Season 1 of this series that explores the uncanny with an hour devoted to “Incredible Survivors,” lucky people who cheated death by squeaking through a life-threatening situation. Whether it’s a skydiver who plummets thousands of feet when her parachutes fail to open, yet sustains only non-critical injuries, or a person in crisis who suddenly yet inexplicably performs a superhuman act to escape, their stories defy belief.


Good Talk With Anthony Jeselnik

11 p.m. ET on COMEDY – Series Premiere

The successful stand-up comic and former writer for “Late Night With Jimmy Fallon” hosts this new comedy-interview show in which he sits down for a half-hour of conversation with one of his friends, who include some of the brightest names in comedy. His guest for the series premiere is actor, comic and voice artist Nick Kroll, whose credits include “The League,” “Kroll Show,” “Parks and Recreation” and the upcoming “The Addams Family” animated movie comedy. Future episodes will feature David Spade, Natasha Leggero and Kumail Nanjiani, among others.


A Black Lady Sketch Show

11 p.m. ET on HBO – Season Finale

Among the sketches in “Born at Night, But Not Last Night,” the Season 1 finale of this well-received new comedy show, two friends quickly come to rue their decision to visit a new black-owned restaurant, and a judge, bailiff, court reporter and attorneys celebrate their first all-black-lady courtroom. In another bit, a mother and daughter go toe-to-toe in the latest episode of “Get the Belt.” Robin Thede, Ashley Black, Gabrielle Dennis and Quinta Brunson also star.
