1) “Lucky Hank” finale, 9 p.m., AMC, rerunning at 11:02. This superb mini-series finds Hank (Bob Odenkirk, shown here) flailing. The school president wants him to fire three faculty people … his wife (Mireille Enos) is in New York, with a big, new job and a tiny, new apartment … and their daughter’s marriage is crumbling. It’s a busy hour that, as usual, offers deep characters and witty dialog.
2) “Call the Midwife” season-finale, 8 p.m., PBS. It’s been a bleak year for “Midwife,” stuffed with overwhelming crises. Even now, on Trixie’s wedding day, there are lots of small problems and one big, lethal problem. Still, it’s an enjoyable hour, redeemed by the warmth of its people. That’s followed by two fairly good hours — “Tom Jones” at 9 and the “Marie Antoinette” season-finale at 10, with the king newly confident and competent during wartime.
3) “MTV Movie and TV Awards,” 8 p.m., MTV, BET, VH1, Comedy Central, TV Land, Paramount Network, Pop; also, 10 p.m. and midnight, MTV. This may need some quick pivots, due to the writers’ strike. Drew Barrymore, who hosts, had already made some short films; they can be used, but there’s no chance for writers to add extra monolog quips. We’ll see if the stars show up; lots are scheduled, including Gal Gadot and Tiffany Haddish.
4) “NCIS: Los Angeles,” 10 p.m., CBS, Next week, the show starts the two-parter that will end its 14th and final season. First, the team jumps into action after four people, including a CIA officer, are killed in broad daylight. That follows new episodes of “The Equalizer” and “East New York.”
5) MORE: Tonight also brings the season-finales of “Family Guy” (9 p.m., Fox) and “The Company You Keep” (10 p.m., ABC). And at 9, “Lucky Hank” collides with two other great dramas – HBO’s “Succession” and Showtime’s “Yellowjackets.” The latter offers some brutal troubles for Shauna, both back then (during childbirth) and now (facing a police probe).
