‘Torchwood: Miracle Day’

DRAMA. It doesn’t take long before people begin to realize Miracle Day — an event that causes humans to become immortal — is much more bleak than wondrous. A new take on the British sci-fi series, this import retains the series’ action, wit and kickass hero, Captain Jack (John Barrowman), while adding newcomers Mekhi Phifer, Bill Pullman and Lauren Ambrose.

Season premiere, Friday, 10 p.m., Starz



‘Curb Your Enthusiasm’

COMEDY. Larry David continues to make enemies in Season 8, particularly when he finds himself in NYC. Big Apple, consider yourself warned.

Season premiere, Sunday, 10 p.m., HBO



‘Say Yes to the Dress: Bridesmaids’

REALITY. And say no to your dignity.

Series premiere, Friday, 10 p.m., TLC
