Not so real housewives

I would never encourage you to engage in any “Real Housewives” antics — unless it involves some of Hollywood’s funniest women sending them up. “The Hotwives of Orlando” features Casey Wilson, Angela Kinsey and Kristen Schaal, talented and underused character actors who get a chance to hog the spotlight. Let the catfights commence! Available on Hulu and Hulu Plus on Monday.

Giving back

Bob Wright, former chairman of NBC, and his wife, Suzanne, are using their wealth and prestige to help autistic kids, including their grandson, Christian. They are among several people profiled in “Sounding the Alarm,” a new documentary about how autism affects the entire family. Now streaming on Netflix.

Futbol fever

Robert Rodriguez has directed the first episode of “Matador,” a new drama about a DEA agent who tries out for a professional soccer team so he can gain access to the corrupt billionaire owner. Maybe our hero should be focusing on something more important — like fixing whatever went wrong with the Brazilian squad. 8 p.m. El Rey
