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

PICK OF THE NIGHT

Nightcap

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.

SERIES DEBUT

Undercover

BBC America, 8 p.m.

People who spent the summer rapt by HBO’s The Night Of will find a lot to like in this six-episode British drama. It comes from the same person, Peter Moffat, and tackles similar themes of race, bias, and criminal justice. At the center is a death-row inmate nearing his last day (a stoically terrific Dennis Haysbert) and his passionate lawyer (Sophie Okonedo), who’s been tapped as England’s top public prosecutor. That’s just half the drama: Her husband of 20 years isn’t who he says he is (hence the title), throwing everything into a tailspin.

WATER WORKS

Code Black

CBS, 10 p.m.

The doctors are sent to a Russian submarine to treat a sailor. Worst work trip ever?

SEASON FINALE

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.
