“You, Me and the Apocalypse” (KOB-4 7pm) You probably didn’t watch this offbeat, British-American comedy/drama about family, cybercrime, sex, religion and the end of the world, but you should have. This is the finale of the innovative 10-part series. Hunt up the rest of it on Hulu and binge.

“The Eighties” (CNN 7pm) Having explored the sixties and the seventies, CNN and producer Tom Hanks take us back to the 1980s—an era of Reaganomics, Steven Spielberg movies, new wave music and parachute pants. Oh, and crack. We can’t forget the crack.

“Rush Hour” (KRQE-13 9pm) Jon Foo and Justin Hires (no idea) replace Jackie Chan and Chris Tucker in this belated TV spin off of the popular cop/kung fu comedy/action series.

“The Ranch” (Netflix streaming anytime) Ashton Kutcher and his pal Danny Masterson (both of whom were on “That ’70s Show”) star in this sitcom about two brothers trying to run a Colorado ranch.

Dead 7 (Syfy 6pm) Former members of ’90s boy bands Backstreet Boys, 98 Degrees, O-Town, ’N Sync and All-4-One star in this cheesy, zombie-fighting flick. They play cowboys. Also, it’s from the makers of Sharknado. So … yeah.

“Wynonna Earp” (Syfy 8pm) The great-granddaughter of Old West lawman Wyatt Earp teams up with immortal gunslinger Doc Holliday to prevent the evil souls of dead criminals from escaping Purgatory.

“The 2016 iHeartRadio Music Awards” (TNT/TBS/truTV 6pm) The fact that Justin Bieber and Meghan Trainor are headlining leads me to believe that maybe I don’t heart radio.

“The Story of God with Morgan Freeman” (National Geographic 7pm) Well, that’s just redundant.

Monday 4

“Fashion Police: The 2016 iHeartRadio Music Awards” (E! 9pm) Oh, but wait! What were Justin Bieber and Meghan Trainor wearing?
