Thursday 6

“From Wags to Riches with Bill Berloni” (DFC 7pm) Bill Berloni rescues animals and trains them for appearances in movies and television. Little bastards have to earn their keep somehow, am I right, Bill?

Friday 7

“Club de Cuervos” (Netflix anytime) Netflix adds this Spanish-language comedy/drama about a rich family fighting for control of a beloved soccer team.

“Animals LOL” (DFC 6pm) Because “All Those Cat Videos Your Aunt Posted on Facebook” was just too long a title.

“The Comment Section” (E! 8:30pm) Comedian Michael Kosta deconstructs the snarky comments on popular websites. … Including all the racist stuff? Because there’s a lot of racist stuff.

Saturday 8

“America’s Next Weatherman” (TBS 9pm) Funny or Die presents this real(ish) “weathercaster reality competition show.” Despite the silly challenges, the winner will get a chance to do the weather on CNN’s “New Day.”

Sunday 9

“Downton Abbey Rediscovered” (KNME-5 7:30pm) Do you really need to “rediscover” it? I mean, it’s only been off the air for six months. This look back at the past five seasons (and a sneak-peek at the final sixth season) might be a nice refresher. But it’s not like the show is freaking Pompeii.

Monday 10

“She’s Got Game” (VH1 7pm) California rapper The Game follows in Flavor Flav’s footsteps, asking VH1 to find him a date. So clearly, his career is going well.

I Am Chris Farley (Spike 7pm) Friends, family and colleagues discuss the life and career of late, great “SNL” comic Chris Farley.

“Style Unzipped” (FYI 8pm) Fashion experts, designers and stylists offer insight into the history of clothing and accessories—starting with bridesmaid dresses, bomber jackets, tighty whities and skinny jeans.

Tuesday 11

“Ken Burns: The Civil War” (KNME-5 7pm) The 25th anniversary screening of Ken Burns’ seminal docu-series features new video clips and interviews with the creators.

“Boss Nails” (Oxygen 7pm) Because you can never have too many reality shows about nail salons.

“The Agent” (Esquire 8pm) This docu-reality series follows a real-life “Jerry Maguire” as he tries to land the big bucks for professional football players.

Wednesday 12

“Kevin From Work” (ABC Family 6pm) On the eve of quitting his job and taking a new position overseas, Kevin pens a letter to the coworker with whom he’s been smitten for years. Unfortunately for him, the new job falls through, and he’s stuck working next to his (now clued-in) crush. Awkward! This romantic sitcom comes from the creator of “How I Met Your Mother.”

“Carnival Cravings with Anthony Anderson” (Food Network 8pm) Apparently, the “Black-ish” star no longer cares about all that weight he lost—because he’s now hosting a show about bacon-wrapped, deep-fried desserts on a stick.
