Seth Meyers: Lobby Baby (Netflix) — Yes, the Late Night host’s new Netflix comedy special does include a button that lets viewers “skip” a political section, but it’s all for a bigger joke. One of many, actually, because Lobby Baby includes everything from Meyers’ harrowing story of his second child’s birth to the joys of parenting.
The End of the F***cking World (Netflix) — It sure seemed like Netflix’s critically acclaimed The End of the F***ing World was going to end after the first season’s cliffhanger, but here we are with a whole new batch of episodes for season two. So, what happened? Why is Alyssa in a wedding dress accompanied by an urn? Is James really dead?

The Flash (The CW, 8:00 p.m.) — So, how well is Cisco handling his new role as the team’s leader in Barry’s absence? Not well. Not well at all.

Arrow (The CW, 9:00 p.m.) — Oliver’s efforts to understand, let alone try and stop, the coming “Crisis” must take a back seat when he and his team square off with a new Deathstroke.

Mayans M.C. (FX, 10:00 p.m.) — The Mayans have been struggling with some big decisions lately. There’s still a lot more to do, but now the Reyes brothers must come to terms with their own issues — and it’s not going to be pretty.
