1) “Shark Week” begins, Discovery. While “SharkFest” continues on National Geographic, the original returns for its 35th year, with lots of imposing creatures (shown here). This time, Jason Momoa hosts and it’s also on Max. There are reruns all day and new hours at night: At 8 p.m., cameras are inside a fake whale carcass, to film a feeding frenzy. At 9, experts ponders the extinct MEG — some 50 feet long. At 10 is a look at attacks near posh Red Sea resorts. At 11, an hour looks back at 35 years.
2) “HouseBroken,” 9 and 9:30 p.m., Fox. Yes, there really are summer shows that are new, fun and scripted … but they’re hard to find. On five of the past six Sundays, Fox’s cartoons were pre-empted by sports. Now they return, with “Simpsons” and “Family Guy” reruns and new episodes of this witty show. Lisa Kudrow voices Honey, a wise cat. In the first episode, she has resentful siblings; in the second, ghosts of pets want her to deliver messages.
3) “Project Lazarus” (TNT) and “The Walking Dead: Dead City” (AMC), both 9 p.m. Two intense dramas have opposite ways of wrapping. “Dead City” (rerunning at 11:04 p.m.), only has these six episodes; it concludes its story, amid rich layers of emotion – but peers at new possibilities. “Lazarus” (rerunning at 10:04) plunges into into a three-week time loop, starting with George’s worst day; it’s compelling … but leaves us hanging until next season.
4) “Ridley,” 8 p.m., PBS. Here’s the second half of a terrific story, centering on the fact that Ridley (a retired cop), savors music. That’s followed by a fairly good “Grantchester” at 9 and a powerful “D.I. Ray” at 10: The final “Ray” minutes offer a fierce jolt and a push toward next week’s finale.
5) ALSO: We can go back two years, for a rerun of a superb Tony Bennett/Lady Gaga special (see separate story). Or 30 years, for the documentary series “Last Call: When a Serial Killer Stalked Queer New York” (9 p.m., HBO); a fourth murder is found, propelling us toward next week’s finale. Or go back further to “1883” (8 p.m., Paramount Network); a weather crisis batters the pioneers. Or go way back for “The Chosen” (8 p.m., CW), viewing the people who would become Jesus’ followers; tonight, two brothers struggle with a tax collector.
