1) “Miracle Workers: Dark Ages” finale, 10:30 p.m., TBS, rerunning at 11:30. As an enemy army approaches the village, King Cragnoor the Heartless springs into action: He loads up his gold and flees. His son, Prince Chauncely the Pretty Cool (Daniel Radcliffe shown here,), has a different approach. He wants to rescue the villagers in general and the woman he loves in particular. It’s a tough task, so this will take a clever scheme. The result is very funny … and a reminder that these weren’t the good old days.
2) “Empire,” 9 p.m., Fox. Andre has prepared TV’s most splendid wedding since Harry and Meghan. There’s a white-robed choir, a white-violin orchestra, two great singers and stylish guests clutching gold tickets. What could go wrong? Well, the bride hates the groom. Also, this is on Fox, where weddings are iffy; in one show (the original “Party of Five”) the same bride fled two weddings in one season. There are the usual over-the-top moments, but this hour works well, with a big finish.
3) “American Experience: Polio Crusade,” 9 p.m., PBS. In the 1940s and ‘50s, polio was killing or paralyzing a half-million people a year. This richly crafted rerun talks to survivors and traces the surge in medical philanthropy, research and rehabilitation. To view another crisis, catch “Influenza 1918” on pbs.org; it views the two-year ordeal that killed 600,000 Americans.
4) “Schitt’s Creek,” 9 p.m., Pop. Setting up next week’s series-finale, we find the family ready to move to New York. Moira is available, having botched her acting comeback by demanding too much; her son David is obsessing on his wedding with Patrick. Laughs are scarce here, but there are some moments of solid drama. If you prefer broad comedy, “One Day at a Time” follows at 9:31; it’s a fairly good episode, with a new driver suddenly becoming everyone’s chauffeur.
5) New Amsterdam,” 10 p.m., NBC. After a one-week break, this is back without “This Is Us” (which ednded its season) as a big lead-in. Tonight, women on a retreat end up in the emergency department; some troubling news could put a patient in danger. Also, Sharpe and Kapoor try to help feuding sisters.
