2:30 p.m. on WCAU WBAL NASCAR Cup Series

The NASCAR Cup playoffs enters its Round of 8 today at Kansas Speedway, where contenders Joey Logano, Kevin Harvick, Kurt Busch and Brad Keselowski will go at it in the Hollywood Casino 400.

8 p.m. on WMAR WPVI Supermarke­t Sweep

“Saturday Night Live” alumna Leslie Jones is both host and executive producer of this classic, fast-paced game show in which each episode features three teams of two battling it out to prove their supermarke­t skills and general knowledge of merchandis­e to win big cash prizes. The team that manages to rack up the biggest grocery bill during their timed race around the store can win $100,000. Jones says she has an emotional stake in the game: She unsuccessf­ully auditioned to be a contestant on an earlier version of the show.

8 p.m. on WMPB WHYY The Trouble With Maggie Cole

Beloved British comedy actress Dawn French (“The Vicar of Dibley”) returns to series television in this new dramedy set in Thurlbury, a quaint coastal village. As the show opens, shop owner and busybody Maggie Cole (French), who presents herself as a local historian, stirs up life in the village during a tipsy interview on a radio show, when she makes some indiscreet revelation­s about several of her neighbors. Mark Heap, Julie Hesmondhal­gh and Vicki Pepperdine also star.

10 p.m. on FX Fargo

As an angry Josto (Jason Schwartzma­n) strikes back, Ethelrida (E’myri Crutchfiel­d) does the right thing in a new episode called “The Birthplace of Civilizati­on.” Meanwhile, the hapless Loy (Chris Rock) finds himself seemingly against the ropes, and Deafy (Timothy Olyphant) shakes the tree to see what falls out. Ben Whishaw and Jessie Buckley also star.
