ROYAL WEDDING WATCH 10:30 p.m. on PBS (check local listings). Did you hear? Prince Harry and the actress Meghan Markle (“Suits”) will tie the knot on Saturday at St. George’s Chapel in Windsor Castle in England. Whether or not you’ve been following the royal-wedding mania, this five-part series will bring you up to speed. Hosted by Meredith Vieira and Matt Baker, it follows the preparations for the grand ceremony with help from experts, historians and commentators, as well as reporting from Windsor. For the infinitely curious, The New York Times has answered a running list of frequently asked questions about the big day.
LUCIFER 8 p.m. on Fox. The Devil swaps hell for Los Angeles in this adaptation of the Vertigo comic book series. In this third-season finale, a shocking death pulls Lucifer (Tom Ellis), Chloe (Lauren German) and the rest of the team into a search for the killer. Then Lucifer sees things in a new light and Maze (Lesley-Ann Brandt) tries to save a friendship.
SUPERIOR DONUTS 9 p.m. on CBS. Based on the play by Tracy Letts, this comedy revolves around a small doughnut shop in Chicago run by the old-fashioned Arthur (Judd Hirsch). Unable to keep up with the demands of his rapidly gentrifying neighborhood, Arthur hires Franco (Jermaine Fowler), a young, proactive artist who breathes new life into the dated establishment. In this Season 2 finale, an armed robbery at the shop motivates Arthur, Franco and Sofia (Diane Guerrero) to rethink their futures.
WHAT HAUNTS US (2018) 9 p.m. on Starz. Upon learning about a seventh suicide among her former classmates at a private school, Porter-Gaud, in Charleston, S.C., the director Paige Goldberg Tolmach dived into the school’s history and discovered that a beloved teacher, Eddie Fischer, had sexually abused students in the 1970s and ’80s. In this powerful documentary, Ms. Tolmach interviews survivors and reveals how little the school and community did to stop the abuse.
TALLADEGA NIGHTS: THE BALLAD OF RICKY BOBBY (2006) on iTunes, Amazon, Google Play, Hulu, Netflix, Vudu and YouTube. At the outset, the superstar Nascar driver Ricky Bobby (Will Ferrell) has everything a stereotypical man’s man needs: a fancy mansion, a ravishing wife (Leslie Bibb) and an endless supply of fast food. Plus, a less-talented best friend (John C. Reilly), who’s always around to boost Ricky’s self-esteem. But when a French Formula One driver, Jean Girard (Sacha Baron Cohen), rises to the top, Ricky’s life comes crashing down, forcing him to up his game and reclaim his title. Despite the film’s over-the-top product placement, “the brand that powers this ragged, intermittently uproarious fusion of sketch-comedy goofing and driving around in circles” is Mr. Ferrell, A. O. Scott wrote in The Times.
An earlier version of this column referred incorrectly to “Superior Donuts.” Although it is based on a play by Tracy Letts, it did not win a Pulitzer Prize. (Mr. Letts’s play “August: Osage County” did win a Pulitzer.)
