Your daily guide to the most interesting stuff happening on TV and streaming. All times Eastern.

PICK OF THE NIGHT

Thirteen

BBC America, 10 p.m.

Thirteen years after being abducted, Ivy, 26, has finally escaped. Quietly despondent, with pasty skin and a tangled head of hair, she’s a wreck. Also? She’s emotionally stuck at age 13. The series, which comes to America from the U.K., takes a hard look at the themes like abuse and psychological damage.

SERIES DEBUT

Queen of the South

USA, 10 p.m.

Adapted from the Spanish-language telenovela La Reina del Sur, this narco-drama stars Alice Braga as a rising cartel leader hunted by brutal Mexican drug lords.

SEASON FINALE

Lip Sync Battle

USA, 10 p.m.

The celebrity-karaoke show wraps up the season with Chris D’Elia and Brett Morin, stars of NBC’s Undateable.

WHO YOU GONNA CALL?

The Graham Norton Show

BBC America, 11:15 p.m.

Ol’ Norton has got quite the lineup tonight, starting with Melissa McCarthy, Kristen Wiig, Kate McKinnon, and Leslie Jones. It’s almost as if those four actors have some sort of big project coming up! And besides them, there’s, uh, Charlie Sheen as the other big guest. That should make for an interesting combination.
