DRAMA OLIVE KIT­TERIDGE

7. 3 0PM, S HOWCASE

De­but of the four-part HBO mini-se­ries that isn’t flashy or ground­break­ing and doesn’t fea­ture dragons bat­tling for thrones. But it is a ter­rif­i­cally­acted, heart­felt med­i­ta­tion on small-town life. Frances McDor­mand stars as the de­pres­sion-prone teacher who gives the show its name along­side Richard Jenk­ins (above with McDor­mand) as her de­voted phar­ma­cist hus­band. Also drift­ing in and out are Bill Mur­ray and Ros­marie DeWitt.

DRAMA

SCAN­DAL 1 1 PM, S E VEN Last episode ended with a shoot­ing cliff-hanger. Tonight wastes no time in re­veal­ing who sur­vived. Mean­while, Olivia con­fronts the killer. His re­sponse seems to shat­ter her belief in loy­alty, hu­man de­cency, the stars and stripes et cetera – how she had any such il­lu­sions left after three back­stab­bing-filled sea­sons re­mains a mys­tery.

SCI-FI

THE LI­BRAR­I­ANS 8. 3 0PM, UNIVER­SAL Ex­press from the US. Noah Wyle (right) is a li­brar­ian who has as­sem­bled a team to bat­tle monsters-of-the-week with wise­crack­ing and wise think­ing, Buffy- style. One episode it was dragons, in another they saved Santa. This week, it’s a teach­able mo­ment when a bunch of pesky stu­dents start dab­bling in witch­craft. Li­brar­i­ans to the res­cue!
