Wednesday: ‘At Home with Amy Sedaris’

711600 At Home with Amy Sedaris 302 UnitHooray, the third season begins for the delightfully weird “At Home with Amy Sedaris” (TBS, 10:30 p.m.), even as all of us are at home as well, and in the first episode she shares everything she knows about babies, even as she convinces herself she’s having one too. Jane Krakowski begins the parade of guest stars this season.

Taped last year in New York, the concert “Ben Platt Live from Radio City Music Hall” (Netflix, streaming), the Broadway leading man and star of the soon-to-return “The Politician” sings from his solo album as well as covering Elton John, Brandi Carlile and Stevie Wonder.

How dumb will reality shows get this summer? Start with “Ultimate Tag” (Fox, 9 p.m.) which is, yes, the childhood game, but all gussied up like “Wipe Out” so contestants have to dodge, tumble, dive and vault against obstacles and resident taggers. It’s hosted by NFL players and brothers J.J., T.J. and Derek Watt and won’t come close to looking like athletic competition.

The seventh and final season begins for “The 100” (CW, 8 p.m.) with 16 episodes instead of the usual 13, so it can close with an even 100 total.

The Turtle, Frog and Night Angel will be identified in the season finale of “The Masked Singer” (Fox, 8 p.m.), and one will win a trophy.

Roger Mooking visits a smokehouse in rural Alabama on the season premiere of “Man Fire Food” (Cooking, 9 p.m.).

The first season of “Motherland” (Freeform, 9 p.m.) ends with three graduating from basic training.

It’s also the season finale for “S.W.A.T.” (CBS, 10 p.m.) and “Deadly Recall” (Investigation Discovery, 10 p.m.).

It’s tough to produce shows during the crisis, so the new offshoot “Married at First Sight: Couples’ Cam” (Lifetime, 8 p.m.) features the pairs doing their own camera work (as if they needed more stress on them).

And then comes “Once Upon a Quarantime” (Lifetime, 9 pm.) following several other self-filming couples who deal with weddings, pregnancies and border battles during the lockdown era.

Mo Mandel visits Appleton, Wis., to see why it’s called America’s Drunkest City on the special “Small Town Throwdown” (Discovery, 10 p.m.). He also sees if Lubbock, Texas, is the country’s’s most boring town.

How to fill up broadcast schedules? Movies! So here’s “Moana” (ABC, 8 p.m.).

Nick Kroll guest stars on both “What We Do in the Shadows” (FX, 10 p.m.) and “Crank Yankers” (Comedy Central, 10:30 p.m.)

“Nature” (PBS, 8 p.m., check local listings) checks on penguins, seals, wolves and polar bears as they use spy cameras in the Arctic and Antarctic circles.

Kyle puts his boss in jeopardy on “Tyler Perry’s The Oval” (BET, 9 p.m.). Then Brian’s wife is kidnapped on “Tyler Perry’s Ruthless” (BET, 10 p.m.).

“Expedition with Steve Backshall” (PBS, 10 p.m., check local listings) goes to Surinam.

Erika throw an astrology party on “The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” (Bravo, 9 p.m.).

Turner Classic Movies’ series on Asian Americans in film wraps up with “Flower Drum Song” (8 p.m.), “Sayonara” (10:30 p.m.) and “The Sand Pebbles” (1:15 a.m.).

During the day are complicated romances: “Wings and the Woman” (8:15 a.m.), “Million Dollar Mermaid” (10 a.m.), “A Notorious Affair” (noon), “Quality Street” (1:15 p.m.), “Give Me Your Heart” (2:45 p.m.), “Sadie McKee” (4:30 p.m.) and “Three Comrades” (6:15 p.m.).
