The dating game

Josh Greenberg is having a bad breakup. His sister has set him up on a rebound date — with a troll. His ex is dating Adolf Hitler. He needs the president's cabinet for advice on how to ask out a potential love interest. Welcome to the weird world of "Man Seeking Woman," a clever new sitcom starring Jay Baruchel ("This Is the End") as a cursed single. The ability of the cast and writers to fully accept this absurd alter-world is what makes this such a different delight. Who said there's nothing new in comedy? 9:30 p.m. Wednesday, FXX

Foreign legion

"The Golden Globe Awards" should have zero credibility with its limited number of largely anonymous voters. Yet somehow the event manages to be a star-studded event that eerily predicts Oscar nominations. It doesn't hurt that the show has once again recruited Tina Fey and Amy Poehler to host. 7 p.m. Sunday, KARE, Ch. 11

Not so smooth criminal

Filmmaker Darius Clark Monroe has found a fascinating subject to be the heart of his documentary, "Evolution of a Criminal"— himself. The director revisits old friends, family members and victims of a foiled bank robbery. It's a heartbreaking but ultimately soul-saving journey back in time. 9 p.m. Monday, TPT, Ch. 2

Making it up

Minneapolis' Darla Edin took a big step forward when she ran the makeup department for "Solitude," a film that earned an official selection to the 2014 Twin Cities Film Festival. Now she's on the national stage as a contestant on "Face Off: Return of the Champions." Based on her performance in the first episode, she may have a shot at the grand prize. 8 p.m. Tuesday, Syfy
