Animation domination

Pity Cheryl Hines. After years of putting up with Larry David on “Curb Your Enthusiasm,” she’s now saddled with an even bigger pain: a sword-wielding warrior (Jason Sudeikis) who happens to be animated. In “Son of Zorn,” the cartoon daddy tries to adjust to suburban life — and the fact that his live-action family doesn’t appreciate his barbaric ways. The novel approach should attract eyeballs, but there’s little here to suggest Zorn should settle in for anything more than a layover.

The ‘Horror’

Creator Ryan Murphy has managed to keep a lid on details of the new season of “American Horror Story,” aside from the fact his go-to gal Sarah Paulson will return, along with Lady Gaga and Matt Bomer. One veteran not scheduled to pop by: Jessica Lange. But the Minnesota native will headline the busy producer’s 2017 anthology series on famous feuds, taking on the iconic role of Joan Crawford opposite Susan Sarandon’s Bette Davis.

Behind the curtain

Bill Hader was robbed of an Emmy nomination for his sidesplitting performances in “Documentary Now!” the ambitious series he co-created with Seth Meyers and Fred Armisen that sends up doc formats. He shows no signs of letting up in the Season 2 premiere, which imagines the heroes of D.A. Pennebaker’s political insider “The War Room” as sex-obsessed grinders who won’t hesitate to take a bullet to see their unqualified candidate take office.
