’13 Reasons Why,’ ‘The Affair,’ the return of ‘Ghost Hunters’ and everything else you don’t want to miss on TV this week.



I Ship It: A writer of fanfiction about a TV show becomes a writer’s assistant on said show on this new musical comedy. Series premiere.  8:30 p.m., The CW

Wall-E: I mentioned a couple of weeks ago that Babe is one of the three greatest children’s movies ever. The other two, in my opinion, are Charlotte’s Web and Up, but this beautiful — and underappreciated — film is high on the list.  6 p.m., Freeform

Paranormal Emergency: Here I was, believing that I was at least aware of all the goofy paranormal shows out there, and then lo and behold, this series about first responders dealing with weird shit is already up to episode three before I found out about it. In this episode, a police officer helps a man who apparently “is being stalked by Bigfoot.” Yes to this   9 p.m., Paranormal Emergency


Pose: Blanca attempts to reassemble the House of Evangelista after a medical setback in the season finale. 9 p.m., FX

Animal Kingdom: Joshua Cody moves in with his family in South Carolina. Season finale. 8 p.m., TNT

The Detour: Season (series?) finale. 9:30 p.m, TBS


Ghost Hunters: Alright, so it’s not the entire TAPS team, it’s just Grant. In fact, Jason, Dave, and Steve are going to be staring in their own ghost series, Ghost Nation, over on Travel Channel in October, and I have A LOT of legal questions about how this all went down, but the bottom line is GHOST HUNTERS IS BACK! (SORTA!) Series premiere. 7 p.m., A&E

Psychic Kids: So, people who used to be psychic kids mentor other kids who have psychic abilities in this new series. Sort of like that old show: Psychic Kids: Children of the Paranormal. Series premiere.  9 p.m., A&E

This Way Up: Hey, it’s another British comedy produced by the wonderful Sharon Horgan (Catastrophe), but starring and written by Aisling Bea. Hulu

Hyperdrive: Like American Ninja Warrior but with cars. And produced by … Charlize Theron? OK. Series premiere. Netflix


Baskets: I love this show and am sad to see it go, but I assume they are leaving on their own terms. Anyway, Martha removes her cast in the series finale.  9 p.m., FX

Brides, Grooms, and Emergency Rooms: I mean, this is just a title that sells itself. 9 p.m., TLC

Freaks: “ONE OF US. ONE OF US.” 7 p.m., TCM


13 Reasons Why: The third and final season asks “Who killed Bryce Walker?” Netflix

Jawline: And if 13 Reasons Why doesn’t give you enough anxiety about your kids and social media, there’s this documentary that was a Sundance Film Festival winner about kids trying to become famous on the internet. Hulu


Mortal Engines: There’s this dystopian thriller that received terrible reviews. 7 p.m., HBO

Star Trek movie marathon: And the old school movies, no less: Star Trek the Movie; Wrath of Khan; The Search for Spock; The Voyage Home; The Final Frontier; and The Undiscovered Country. 4:45 p.m., Epix Drive-In
