Sunday TV: ‘Succession’ Season Three

It’s one of the best shows on TV, yet the third season of “Succession” (HBO, 9 p.m.) shows us that things haven’t changed one bit in the Roy family saga, where the central question is the same one as when it started: Who will succeed the garrulous head of the media conglomerate, played by the ever-fuming Brian Cox. It would almost be a shame if they ever decide — the bickering is so entertaining. The strong cast of Jeremy Strong, Sarah Snook, Alan Ruck, Kieran Culkin and Matthew Macfayden all have an offhanded way of delivering their barbs that is as naturalistic as it is rollicking. 

A second season begins for “Batiste” (PBS, 10 p.m., check local listings), the spinoff of “The Missing” starring Tchéky Karyo. 

“The Circus” (Showtime, 8 p.m.) looks into the Trump presidency.

Sunday Night Football has Seattle at Pittsburgh (NBC, 8:20 p.m.). Earlier games include Miami vs. Jacksonville (CBS, 9:30 a.m.), Chargers at Giants (Fox, 1 p.m.), Kansas City at Washington (CBS, 1 p.m.), Arizona at Cleveland (Fox, 4 p.m.) and Dallas at New England (CBS, 4:25 p.m.). 

Instances of bribery are investigated in the documentary “The Men Who Stole the World Cup” (Discovery+, streaming).

“Hightown” (Starz, 8:55 p.m.), the drug drama set in Cape Cod, returns for a second season. 

A sixth season begins for the zombie spinoff “Fear the Walking Dead” (AMC, 9 p.m.) in a post nuclear world. On “The Walking Dead: World Beyond” (AMC, 10 p.m.), Huck gets an ultimatum. It all makes for a lot to talk about on “Talking Dead” (AMC, 11:11 p.m.).
