PICK OF THE NIGHT
Pop, 8 p.m.
Pop is one of those networks most people don’t really know how to find, but, every now and then, a show gives them a reason to look it up. Nightcap is one of them. Starring Ali Wentworth as the talent booker for a third tier late-night talk show, the offbeat comedy follows the odd, awkward goings-on of the staff behind the scenes staff. Imagine 30 Rock but less caustic and with a revolving door of celebrity guests baked into the plot — Sarah Jessica Parker, Andy Cohen, and Kelly Ripa all make cameos in the premiere.
BBC America, 8 p.m.
CBS, 10 p.m.
The doctors are sent to a Russian submarine to treat a sailor. Worst work trip ever?
American Horror Story
FX, 10 p.m.
“Yes! Thank goodness, it’s finally over!” exclaim the beleaguered members of the North Carolina board of tourism.
