Better Things (10 p.m., FX) - Season 3 of this critically acclaimed Pamela Adlon show premieres. Adlon directs all episodes of the season — and it’s a season that almost didn’t happen. In 2017, Louis CK, Adlon’s longtime collaborator and her co-creator for the series, admitted to sexual misconduct. He was removed as an executive producer of “Better Things” and Adlon severed ties with him. She told NPR this week that after all that, her heart just wasn’t in the show, but that FX gave her the time to think and make up her mind.
