Wednesday TV: Recounting the 2000 Vote

Even if you’ve already voted, you can get skittish by reliving what happened in 2020, when Al Gore won the popular vote and the Supreme Court told Florida to stop a recount to see if George W. Bush really won there. The documentary “537 Votes” (HBO, 9 p.m.) goes back to the days of hanging chads and ersatz Republican protestors but begins with something else that happened earlier that election year in Florida: Elian Gonzalez.  

“My Next Guest Needs No Introduction with David Letterman” (Netflix, streaming) returns for a shortened third season, profiling Kim Kardashian, Robert Downey Jr., Dave Chappelle and Lizzo.

Armie Hammer and Lily James star in a remake of “Rebecca” (Netflix, streaming) that also stars Kristin Scott Thomas. 

A number of network comedies begin their pandemic-delayed seasons tonight, and they’re writing the Covid era into their stories as well in “The Conners” (ABC, 9 p.m.) and “Black-ish” (ABC, 9:30 p.m.). 

But “The Goldbergs” (ABC, 8 and 8:30 p.m.) is a period piece so it turns with a salute to “Airplane!” in the first of two episodes.

A new four-episode dramatic series looks at early leaders in the gay rights movement, “Equal” (HBO Max, streaming) features a cast that includes Cheyenne Jackson as Dale Jennings and Anthony Rapp as Harry Hay. 

Game 2 of the World Series has Tampa Bay vs. Dodgers (Fox, 8 p.m.) from the same place as last night.
