Today’s Best Bets


Living Biblically

CBS | 9:30 pm
It seemed for a while that this comedy might not get a proper send-off, since it was pulled from its original time slot before all the episodes had aired. However, it makes its official exit here with the last story filmed, as "David and Goliath" finds Chip (Jay R. Ferguson) trying to get Mrs. Meadows (Camryn Manheim) reinstated after she’s fired. He only succeeds in getting himself dismissed, too — turning him into the David who goes up against the Goliath represented by corporate bigwigs. […]

Eye in the Sky

STARZ | 8:00 pm
The hot-button topic of drone warfare is the subject of this 2015 British thriller starring Helen Mirren as Col.

Aaron Paul ("Breaking Bad"), Alan Rickman, Jeremy Northam and Iain Glen ("Game of Thrones") also star. […]

Me, Myself & I

CBS | 8:00 pm
The series airs its last three episodes back-to-back-to-back, starting with "Phil Ricozzi," named for Alex’s (Bobby Moynihan) prime enemy from childhood (played as an adult by guest star Stephen Rannazzisi). The story jumps back to the past, when the two were about to come to literal blows at school, and also leaps ahead to the future — when one attends the funeral of the other. Jack Dylan Grazer and John Larroquette share the role of Alex with Moynihan. […]

The Revenant

FX | 7:30 pm
With his work in this grueling, fact-based 2015 survival drama, Leonardo DiCaprio was a lock to receive an Oscar for his largely silent portrayal of Hugh Glass, a 19th-century frontiersman left by most of his trapping party to die after being savagely mauled by a bear (in a harrowing sequence). The film made Alejandro Gonzalez Innaritu one of the few directors to receive consecutive Academy Awards, his also having won for "Birdman" the previous year. Tom Hardy, Domnhall Gleeson and Will Poulter also star. […]

Inside Out

DISNEY | 6:00 pm
This much-praised 2015 Disney-Pixar offering gives emotions their own lives, with Amy Poehler, Bill Hader and Mindy Kaling among those giving voice to animated representations of such feelings as Joy and Fear. Director and co-writer Pete Docter ("Up") based the story on his daughter, with a youngster (voiced by Kaitlyn Dias) struggling to adapt to the changes when she relocates with her parents (voices of Diane Lane and Kyle MacLachlan). Lewis Black also is heard. […]
