1) “Fam,” 9:30 p.m., CBS; and “Better Things,” 10 p.m., FX. For one more week, daughter and mother are back-to-back. First is the season-finale (and, probably, forever finale) of “Fam,” a fairly good show with fine work from Odessa Adlon (show here in last week’s episode); it’s time for her sister’s wedding. Then Pamela Adlon has another odd-but-great episode. This one starts with Frankie (the fictional version of Odessa) behaving badly. And it may be the first TV show to ask: “Frankie, why are you flushing towels down the toilet?”
2) “The Big Bang Theory,” 8 and 9 p.m., CBS. Saving it final six episodes, “Big Bang” offers a pair of reruns. The first is fairly good, as Penny’s hunky ex-boyfriend wants a big favor from Leonard. The second is hilarious, with Amy’s dad (Teller, a great magician) becoming fascinated by magic.
3) “Cloak and Dagger,” 8 p.m., Freeform. “This is really messed-up,” Tandy says. You think? In the opening of a strong episode, a lab scene shows a jolting side-effect of Roxxon. Then we see that effect on humans: It’s the ultimate good cop/bad cop … with both being variations of the same person.
4) “In the Dark,” 9 p.m., CW. In its second episode, this show wobbles in tone and in quality. Some of the sex and body-part scenes seem to be thrown in brashly, almost for shock appeal. But at the core, we still have Perry, who is blind, in an earnest search for her friend, who may have been killed. Late in the hour, a scene with the friend’s mother is beautifully written and played.
5) “Brooklyn Nine-Nine” and “Abby’s” 9 and 9:30 p.m., NBC. “Will & Grace” has ended its season, so NBC juggles anew. Back from a two-week break, “Nine-Nine” moves to 9 p.m., with an intimate episode: On their anniversary, Jake and Amy are guarding a hospital patient; they use the time to ponder their relationship. That leads to “Abby’s,” about the annual day when a rep brings free liquor. It’s only moderately funny, but has insights about Abby and how her outdoor bar started.
