Thursday TV: Unauthorized Tyson Tales

Trevante Rhodes is a bit intimidating in the title role of the eight-episode limited series “Mike” (Hulu, streaming), about the boxer Mike Tyson. But he might be looking over his shoulder throughout, as the entire production, which also stars Russell Hornsby as Don King, was done without the former champions consent or approval.

It’s Science Guy Bill Nye (and not, say, comedian Louis Nye) who is star of the new series “The End is Nye” (Peacock, streaming) in which solutions to global disasters are explored. Seth MacFarlane is a producer. 

“Everything I Know About Love” (Peacock, streaming) concerns four friends since childhood who compare notes about their love lives. Emma Appleton, Bel Powley, Aliyah Odoffin and Mardi Liu star in the series adapted by Dolly Atherton from her own book.

A new season starts for the animated spin-off “Star Trek: Lower Decks” (Paramount+, streaming). 

“House of Ho” (HBO Max, streaming) is a new series following a family of Vietnamese immigrants, living the high life. 

Also living lavish lifestyle are the characters of “Carl Weber’s The Black Hamptons” (BET+, streaming), starring Lamman Rucker, Vanessa Bell Calloway and Elsie Neal. 

“Little Demon” (FXX, 10 p.m.) is a new animated adult series about a teen who finds she’s a spawn f the devil. The voices of Danny DeVito, his daughter Lucy DeVito and Aubrey Plaza are used.
