BEST BETS

The Washington Times Daily - - LIFE -

Mar­lon / 9:00pm (4) With the episode “Model Par­ent,” Mar­lon Wayans re­turns with the sec­ond sea­son of his com­edy series, which is based loosely on his own ex­pe­ri­ences. His on-screen al­ter ego is deeply in­volved in co-par­ent­ing with his exwife (Essence Atkins), even if the ad­vice he doles out to his kids might not al­ways seem to be the wis­est. Notlim Tay­lor and Amir O’Neil play the young­sters, with Bre­sha Webb and Diallo Rid­dle also in the reg­u­lar cast. An­other episode fol­lows.

Girl­friends’ Guide to Di­vorce / 10:00pm (Bravo) As the hit dram­edy re­turns for Sea­son 5, a red car­pet event gives the main cir­cle of friends rea­son to re­flect on events of the past few months in the new “Rule No. 773: Step and Re­peat.” Abby (Lisa Edelstein) makes Mike (James Lesure) an of­fer, while Bar­bara (Retta) re­laxes her guard around ex-hus­band Leon (guest star Aaron D. Spears). After some dis­ap­point­ing news, Delia (Ne­car Zade­gan) gets a sur­pris­ing of­fer. Phoebe (Beau Gar­rett) con­sid­ers rec­on­cil­ing with her brother Tony (guest star Steve Tal­ley).

Alone / 10:03pm (His­tory Ch) 11:05pm (His­tory Ch) 1:06am (His­tory Ch) 3:06am (His­tory Ch) In Sea­son 5, 10 for­mer un­suc­cess­ful par­tic­i­pants get a sec­ond shot at glory in this gru­el­ing sur­vival series, which awards a cool half a mil­lion dol­lars to the most iron-willed sur­vivor of the bunch. In the sea­son premiere, “Redemp­tion,” this sea­son’s sur­vival­ists are dropped off in the most re­mote lo­ca­tion yet: North­ern Mon­go­lia, where they’ll have to con­tend with soul-crush­ing sub­zero tem­per­a­tures, deadly preda­tors, gnaw­ing hunger and the pun­ish­ing sense of iso­la­tion.

Essence Atkins stars in “Mar­lon” Thurs­day on NBC.
