‘Veep,’ ‘Barry,’ ‘What We Do in the Shadows,’ and everything else you don’t want to miss on TV this week

The Hunger Games marathon: No reason. 1 p.m., TNT


Miracle Workers: This delightful little show which has received ZERO love from the louder TV critic voices ends its first season. I can’t recommend this series enough — you can watch it on TBS.com if you’ve missed the first 7 episodes. 9:30 p.m., TBS

What We Do in the Shadows: The original hilarious movie that the upcoming FX series is based on. Hey! That debuts tomorrow night! 5 p.m., FX

What We Do in the Shadows: This adaptation of the delightful 2014 movie (see above) looks perfect. Can not wait. Series premiere. 9 p.m., FX

Happy!: This bonkers series is back for season two. Season premiere. 9 p.m., Syfy

Million Dollar Mile: I don’t know, it’s some sort of race? But not The Amazing Race? Maybe Amazing Race lite? Like I said, I don’t know, CBS hasn’t been promoting this one very much. Series premiere. 8 p.m., CBS


Abby’s: This backyard bar sitcom (filmed, remarkably, outside in front of a live audience) has all the right genes: Natalie Morales leads a charming cast in a show created by a New Girl and Superstore producer and it is from Mike Schur’s production company. But the fact that NBC is premiering it in late March does not bode well for how NBC feels about its future. Keep your fingers crossed for this one. Series premiere. 8:30 p.m., NBC

Broad City: The groundbreaking comedy comes to an end. I WILL LOVE YOU FOREVER, ABBI AND ILANA. Series finale. 9 p.m., Comedy Central
