Hulu beat its more prominent competitor Netflix to the punch when “The Handmaid’s Tale” became the first streaming series to win best drama. “The Looming Tower” just might follow suit with a sophisticated writing team, including former Minnesotan Ali Selim, and a brilliant cast led by Jeff Daniels as the FBI counterterrorism leader who saw the Sept. 11 attacks coming. This is what grown-up TV is all about.

The star of “Hollywood Medium With Tyler Henry” may be a con artist, but he’s one who has convinced increasingly big names to invite him into their homes.

“Marlon Wayans: Woke-ish” may leave you catching your breath, not from laughter but from the spectacle of a 45-year-old comedian trying to get away with a younger man’s act. Keeping up with his more famous siblings seems exhausting, but it’s less tiring than sitting through another season of NBC’s “Marlon.”
