Everyone Is Doing Great

HOW/WHEN & WHERE TO WATCH: Streaming on Hulu

Series Debut
What do you do after your extremely successful teen TV show ends? Just ask James Lafferty and Stephen Colletti. It's been eight years since their hit series One Tree Hill ended, and their new comedy — streaming exclusively on Hulu — is giving OTH fans a peek inside what their lives have looked like ever since … with a twist. The darkly hilarious Everyone Is Doing Great follows Seth (Colletti) and Jeremy (Lafferty), two actors who starred together on a massively famous vampire TV show. But it's been five years since that fictional show-within-a-show ended, and now they're forced to lean on each other as they awkwardly navigate the perils of life and love after intense fame in a late coming-of-age story. Lafferty and Colletti wrote and produced all eight episodes that tell a fictionalized story based on their real-life experiences, and it's must-see TV for any OTH fan. —Sydney Bucksbaum

Night Stalker: The Hunt for a Serial Killer

HOW/WHEN & WHERE TO WATCH: Streaming on Netflix

Docuseries Debut
Some seven years after solving the case of Los Angeles' notorious serial killers, the Hillside Stranglers, LAPD homicide investigator Frank Salerno had another menacing case on his hands: the killer who came to be known as the Night Stalker. This four-part docuseries chronicles the series of gruesome murders and sexual assaults committed by Richard Ramirez from June 1984 to August 1985, the exhausting investigation that also included young detective Gil Carrillo, and the panic that washed over the entire city. Salerno, Carrillo, family members of victims, survivors, and media help tell this disturbing story, recounting the race to stop Ramirez before his list of victims — men, women, and children ranging in age from six to 82 — could become larger. —Gerrad Hall

HOW/WHEN & WHERE TO WATCH: 8 p.m./9 p.m./10 p.m. on NBC

One Chicago fans are in for a treat x 3 as Chicago MedChicago P.D., and Chicago Fire return tonight (after being preempted last week due to breaking news) with all-new episodes. Love is in the air, at least for most of our "will they/won't they" couples, and although not all have a happy ending, it's important not to lose hope just yet. With things finally over with Will Halstead (Nick Gehlfuss) on Med, Dr. Manning (Torrey DeVitto) is ready to move on. There's been a connection and a bit of flirtation between her and Crockett (Dominic Rains), who bonded after they were abducted together last season. But could this be a love connection? Crockett is the handsome newcomer who shared a kiss with April (Yaya DaCosta), wrecking her engagement to Dr. Choi (Brian Tee). Not to mention, he has a long history of one-night stands that has made Dr. Manning tread lightly. Could he be ready to let his guard down and let someone enter his heart for real?! Speaking of the Halstead men, Jay (Jesse Lee Soffer) over on P.D. has yet to realize his best friend and partner Upton (Tracy Spiridakos) is madly in love with him. This could be a great match, if only she'd be as brave with her words as she is fighting bad guys on the street. We won't say too much but they're definitely at a crossroad in tonight's episode, and she needs to speak now or forever hold her peace. And lastly, Fire will address that steamy kiss between Casey (Jesse Spencer) and Brett (Kara Killmer), but fans already know this is a complicated situation. Brett is loyal to her BFF Gabby (Monica Raymund) and is sticking to girl code, or at least she was until the fall finale. It's not like Casey and Gabby were casually dating, they were married. Brett may have lost herself in the heat of the moment but once she rationalizes what she's done, will she continue? If not, at least, this could open the door for Gabby to return again?! And maybe she can bring along her brother Antonio Dawson (Jon Seda), whose disappearance left a gaping hole in the hearts of One Chicago fans. —Rosy Cordero

Call Your Mother

HOW/WHEN & WHERE TO WATCH: 9:30 p.m. on ABC

Series Debut
Start the new year off with laughs with ABC's comedy Call Your Mother starring Kyra Sedgwick. Jean Raines (Sedgwick) is an empty nest mother who heads to L.A. to check in on her son, and ends up navigating a new life. "[Jean's] a fish-out-of-water in Los Angeles, and she's suddenly confronted with all of L.A.'s eccentricities, including an obsession with youth and beauty," Sedgwick explains. Call Your Mother aims to deliver both laughs and powerful messages, something Sedgwick compares to the Norman Lear comedies of the '70s. "The great thing about sitcoms is that you can present a problem, and then at the end of the episode, things are wrapped up," says Sedgwick, who is very happy for easy solutions at the moment. "Life is sort of trying how to do things at every stage in your life," Sedgwick explains, and all of the characters show that reinvention is often necessary at any age. —Alamin Yohannes
