Thursday TV: ‘Search Party’ Found Again

SearchPartyThe third season of the funny (and lately missing) “Search Party” (HBO Max, streaming) moves from TBS to the newish service, extending the story of Alia Shawkat’s Dory and her hipster friends in Brooklyn as a criminal trial begins. For all the hoopla over its other holdings, this is one of the few titles that is the real selling points of HBO Max.

A new season of Jordan Peele’s version of “The Twilight Zone” (CBS All Access, streaming) begins, with participants in the anthologies stories (which in season one were straight up remakes of Rod Serling’s originals) include Tony Hale, Billy Porter, Topher Grace and Sky Ferreira.

The beloved animated show “Adventure Time” produces a spinoff “Adventure Time: Distant Lands” (HBO Max, streaming), where Finn and Jake find themselves in new surroundings.

The superhero saga “Doom Patrol” (HBO Max, streaming) returns for a second season. The first season ran on the DC Universe streaming service.

The one hour special Variety’s Power of Women: Frontline Heroes (Lifetime, 10 p.m.) salutes doctors, nurses, teachers and others on the front line – though it’s sponsored by the magazine that honors celebrities, so there are a few that get awards for humanitarian efforts, including Cate Blanchett, Patti LuPone and Janelle Monáe. Robin Roberts hosts the event, rescheduled from earlier this month “in deference to recent cultural and societal events.”

It’s the last episode ever of “Broke” (CBS, 9:30 p.m.), the Pauley Perrette sitcom that wasn’t renewed for a second season.

Joanna reluctantly puts together a class action suit against ClearDawn labs on “Burden of Truth” (CW, 8 p.m.).

Madeline tries to do some shipping on “Blindspot” (NBC, 9 p.m.).

“Labor of Love” (Fox, 9 p.m.) just has five suitors remaining.

At Kat’s urging, Jane starts dating again on “The Bold Type” (Freeform, 10 p.m.).

“Council of Dads” (NBC, 8 p.m.) face a killer storm.

Someone tries to cut off Nia’s supply on “In the Dark” (CW, 9 p.m.).

“Alone” (History, 10 p.m.) is looking more and more like a torture exercise.

Can’t MTV find other hosts than these meatballs? In addition to “Double Shot at Love with DJ Pauly D & Vinny” (MTV, 8 p.m.), the duo also hosts the new “Revenge Prank” (MTV, 9:30 p.m.).

“Don’t” (ABC, 9 p.m.) pits divorced parents against one another. It follows another warped around of “Holey Moley II: The Sequel” (ABC, 8 p.m.).

Robert ranks his top five projects on “Restaurant: Impossible” (Food, 9 p.m.).

“Mountain Men” (History, 8 p.m.) do a whole lot of hunting.

Luann and Sonja watch an old episode of “The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” (Bravo, 9 p.m.).

“Ghost Adventures” (Travel, 9 p.m.) gets goofier by the episode as the quarantined crew tries to determine how “mankind’s spiritual energy has been impacted by the coronavirus epidemic.”

“Treasure Island with Bear Grylls” (Discovery, 8 p.m.) looks for a water source.

Labor day looms for the restaurants on “Summer Rush” (Food, 10 p.m.).

Hosts on “Kindred Spirits” (Travel, 10 p.m.) are left to reminisce on trips and answer viewer mail.

Mario Cantone, Rita Moreno, Raven-Symone and Deon Cole play “To Tell the Truth” (ABC, 10 p.m.).

“Celebrity Watch Party” (Fox, 8 p.m.) flips through Father’s Day fare.

The Jazz in Film series on Turner Classic Movies comes to an end with “New Orleans” (8 p.m.), “Lady Sings the Blues” (9:45 p.m.), “Pete Kelly’s Blues” (12:15 a.m.), “Blues in the Night” (2 a.m.) and “Rhapsody in Blue” (4 a.m.).

The day begins with the balance of the History of the Swimsuit, with “Muscle Beach Party” (7 a.m.), “Bikini Beach” (8:45 a.m.), “Beach Blanket Bingo” (10:30 a.m.) and “How to Stuff a Wild Bikini” (12:15 p.m.). Then it’s all Miss Marple with “Murder, She Said” (2 p.m.), “Murder at the Gallop” (3:30 p.m.) and “Murder Most Foul” (5:15 p.m.).

Golfers are dropping out right and left from Connecticut’s Travelers Championship (Golf, 3 p.m.), though the state has the best coronavirus numbers in the country.
