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

PICK OF THE WEEK

Atlanta

FX, 10 p.m.

After months of hype and a steady stream of dreamy trailers, Donald Glover’s show is finally here. The former Community actor stars as Earnest Marks, a homeless Princeton dropout slumming it the show’s namesake city. Expect comedy, music, absurdity, artiness, and all the other good stuff you’ve come to expect from Glover.

SERIES DEBUT

Queen Sugar

OWN, 10 p.m.

Ava DuVernay, director of 2014’s Oscar-nominated Selma, has teamed up with Oprah Winfrey for a new series about three siblings who come together in Louisiana to look after their dead father’s sugar cane farm. But hey, you were already sold way back at “Oprah,” weren’t you?

SERIES DEBUT

StartUp

Crackle, streaming

Still don’t know what Crackle is? Well, Martin Freeman and Adam Brody sure do — the two of them costar in the streaming platform’s latest show. The Miami-set drama follows a white-collar finance type (played by Brody) who teams up with a whiz-kid hacker (Otmara Marrero) and a street-level gangster (Edi Gathegi) as they try to launch a Bitcoin-style business. Freeman, meanwhile, plays a corrupt FBI agent who has other ideas. 

SEASON FINALE

Difficult People

Hulu, streaming

If you’re not caught up on the deliciously snarky Billy Eichner-Julie Klausner sitcom, you should definitely spend your entire day bingeing on it so that you’re in good shape for today’s finale. You can tell your boss we said it’s okay.
