The country’s most unrealistic urban high school is the setting for “Mr. Robinson,” a new sitcom that gets a failing grade in aptitude and attitude. Craig Robinson stars as a music teacher without any instruments and a club musician without any talent. Robinson’s too-cool-for-the-room approach to comedy worked for him in “The Office” and “Hot Tub Time Machine,” but there’s a difference between laid-back and just plain sleepy. Peri Gilpin somehow manages to forget everything she learned on “Frasier” in a thankless role as the repressed principal. By comparison, “Welcome Back, Kotter” seems downright edgy. 8 p.m. Wednesday, KARE, Ch. 11
When “Wet Hot American Summer” was released in 2001, it bombed at the box office and Roger Ebert put it on his “hate” list. So what justifies the spinoff series, “Wet Hot American Summer: First Day of Camp”? Credit a cult following that adored the blend of ridiculous and subtle humor created by Michael Showalter and David Wain, plus the cast of future stars, including Amy Poehler, Bradley Cooper and Elizabeth Banks, who all check back in for this eight-part season. Now streaming on Netflix.
Scratching the surface
The title may be “JFK & LBJ: A Time for Greatness,” but this fast-paced documentary focuses primarily on Lyndon Johnson’s passion behind the 1964 Civil Rights Act — and how he used John Kennedy’s death to get it. It’s a fine introduction for those new to that time in history, but anything involving a bigger-than-life figure like Johnson deserves a running time longer than one hour. 8 p.m. Tuesday, TPT, Ch. 2

No Minnesotans appear to be among the contestants in cycle 22 of “America’s Next Top Model: Guys and Girls,” which is just as well since most of the winners never secure a gig any more prominent than wearing a sandwich board in front of a new Chipotle. Creator and executive producer Tyra Banks returns as host. 7 p.m. Wednesday, WUCW, Ch. 23
