DON’T MISS: “One Day at a Time” – After being canceled by Netflix, the rebooted Norman Lear comedy begins life anew on another network thanks to passionate fans who rallied around it. This 13-episode fourth season finds Penelope (Justina Machado) exploring a surprising relationship, while her mother Lydia (Rita Moreno) experiences a religious crisis – and reveals the details of her surprise trip to Cuba with Dr. Berkowitz (Stephen Tobolowsky). Also, Schneider (Todd Grinnell) grows even closer to Avery (India de Beaufort), Elena (Isabella Gomez) prepares for college, and Alex (Marcel Ruiz) starts to date. (9:30 p.m. Tuesday, Pop TV).

In “Just My Type,” a big-city pop culture writer novelist (Bethany Joy Lenz) lands an interview with an illustrious and reclusive mystery author (Brett Dalton) in his quaint rural town.
