Around the remote: Chuck Barney’s TV picks for week of March 13-20

Chuck Barney Tribune News Service

DON’T MISS: “The Americans” – The spy games continue for Philip (Matthew Rhys) and Elizabeth Jennings (Keri Russell) as Season 4 of the critically acclaimed Cold War thriller launches with a pulse-pounding opener. Now that teen daughter Paige (Holly Taylor) knows her parents are KGB operatives, things get really complex – and perilous – for all involved. 10 p.m. Wednesday, FX.

Other bets

SUNDAY: Agatha Christie’s “And Then There Were None” comes to prime time in a two-part miniseries. Set in 1939, as Europe teeters on the brink of war, 10 strangers with dubious pasts are invited to an isolated island where a murderer stalks them one by one. 8 p.m., Lifetime.

MONDAY: Another soggy-eyed season of “The Bachelor” comes to a close and we have questions: Who will Ben Higgins choose? More importantly, who will post the snarkiest comments on Twitter? 8 p.m., ABC.

MONDAY: Arsenio Hall is our host for the “2016 BET Honors.” Among the black influencers being celebrated are producer-director Lee Daniels (“Empire”) and singer Patti LaBelle. 8 p.m., BET.

MONDAY: It’s time to throw down (musically) on “The Voice” as the Battle Rounds begin. This season’s advisers include Sean “Diddy” Combs, Tori Kelly, Patti LaBelle and Gwen Stefani. 8 p.m., NBC.

TUESDAY: On the milestone 300th episode of “NCIS,” the team re-examines an ambush on a group of Special Ops snipers in Iraq after an American couple is attacked in the same area six months later. Taye Diggs guest stars. 8 p.m., CBS.

TUESDAY: “Crowded” is a new sitcom about a couple (Patrick Warburton and Carrie Preston) just starting to relish their empty-nest freedom when their adult daughters (Miranda Cosgrove and Mia Serafino) decide to move back in. Hilarity allegedly ensues. 10 p.m., NBC.

WEDNESDAY: TV’s infatuation with spin offs continues with “Criminal Minds: Beyond Borders.” Gary Sinise stars as the head of a special international division of the FBI that comes to the rescue of Americans who find themselves in danger while abroad. 10 p.m., CBS.

THURSDAY: We expect at least a handful of crazy “OMG” moments in tonight’s Season 2 finale of “How to Get Away With Murder.” But will they all make sense? Don’t be silly. 10 p.m., ABC.

THURSDAY: On the Season 1 finale of “Colony,” the Resistance kidnaps a valuable hostage and the entire Los Angeles bloc is placed on lockdown. But through it all, Josh Holloway’s hair should be just fine. 10 p.m., USA.

FRIDAY: As “Yukon Men” returns for another season of harsh living and icy danger, we find ourselves wondering: Is there anyone left in Alaska who hasn’t been on a reality TV show? 10 p.m., Discovery Channel.

SATURDAY: The new late-night sketch comedy series “Party Over Here,” executive produced by The Loney Island comedy trio (Andy Samberg, Akiva Schaffer and Jorma Taccone), continues its maiden run with another half-hour of much-needed laughter. 11 p.m., Fox.
