Gotham / 8:00pm (5) Rid­dle me this: The se­ries re­turns for the home stretch of its third sea­son with the new episode “Heroes Rise: How the Rid­dler Got His Name.” That vil­lain­ous alias fi­nally is as­sumed by Nygma (Cory Michael Smith) as he goes off on his own, apart from Pen­guin (Robin Lord Tay­lor), and causes prob­lems for Bul­lock and Lu­cius Fox (Donal Logue, Chris Chalk). Gor­don (Ben McKen­zie) learns trou­bling in­for­ma­tion about his fa­ther’s fate. James Re­mar guest stars.

APB / 9:01pm (5) The po­lice drama ends its sea­son with “Ric­o­chet,” as Gideon (Justin Kirk) deals with a tar­nished rep­u­ta­tion over ter­ror­ist at­tacks that he and his tech­nol­ogy couldn’t pre­vent. He and Cap­tain Con­rad (Ernie Hud­son) try to stop the as­saults as Danny (guest star Ty Ol­win) de­ploys more weaponry against the city’s pop­u­la­tion. Mur­phy (Natalie Martinez), Ada (Caitlin Stasey) and the other of­fi­cers try to lo­cate him — and not ev­ery­one may sur­vive. In­de­pen­dent Lens / 10:00pm (26.4) Is any sub­ject not fair game for hu­mor? The Holo­caust would seem to be one of those taboo top­ics, but Ferne Pearl­stein’s doc­u­men­tary “The Last Laugh” shows that even those who were in­terred in con­cen­tra­tion camps used lev­ity as a means of sur­vival. A por­trait of one of those who did leave Auschwitz alive — Re­nee Fire­stone — is un­der­scored by com­ments from Mel Brooks, Sarah Sil­ver­man and Gil­bert Got­tfried, as well an Anti-Defama­tion League mem­ber.

J. Cole: 4 Your Eyez Only / 10:30pm (HBO) On the heels of his well-re­ceived 2016 HBO doc­u­men­tary that cap­tured the mak­ing of his al­bum “2014 For­est Hills Drive,” this new film di­rected by rap­per J. Cole show­cases songs from the artist’s fourth al­bum, ac­com­pa­nied by and re­veal­ing footage con­tain­ing the heart­felt con­fes­sions, con­cerns and strug­gles of peo­ple in the South, in­clud­ing At­lanta, Baton Rouge, La., and Fayetteville, N.C.
