1) “Grown-ish,” 8 p.m., Freeform. This was originally built around the college life of Zoey (shown here), from “Black-sh”; she still narrates, but tonight’s story ranges afar. Ana reaches a turning point in her romance and Aaron finds his activist spirit revived. This isn’t quite a comedy – there are plenty of them on Thursdays – but it is a crisply filmed half-hour, with likable young people exploring life.
2) “Inside Out” (2015), 8:30 p.m., Freeform. After “Grown-ish,” you can stick around for this delight. Peeking inside the character’s minds, it won an Oscar for best animated feature and was nominated for its script. Other choices range from grit – “No Country for Old Men” (2007), an Oscar-winner for best picture, at 7 p.m. on Showtime – to fluff: “Charlie’s Angels” (2019) – written and stylishly directed by Elizabeth Banks, who co-stars – is 8:26 p.m. on Starz.
3) “Mom,” 9 p.m., CBS. In a terrific rerun, tempers are frayed when the women are wedged together at a sober retreat. That follows a pair of “Young Sheldon” reruns, as Sheldon faces fresh adventures – riding a bike (none of his college classmates will have training wheels) and going to Bible camp.
4) “Mr. Mayor” and “Superstore,” 8 and 8:30 p.m., NBC. Here are some new episodes, to counter the CBS reruns. First, the mayor (Ted Danson) tries a new initiative, with his assistant (Holly Hunter) schooling him. Then Jonah’s friends try to help him rebound from Amy’s departure.
5) “Star Trek: Discovery,” 10 p.m., CBS. A week from the season-finale, everything is transforming … again. In a mirror world, Burnham managed to foil Captain Lorca (who was killed) and help the Discovery head back toward its own world. But time-travel is never precise (apparently) and new troubles arise: Can Ash – the Klingon who was disguised via human DNA – be saved? Will the Klingon war ever end? The final moments set up next week’s confrontation.
