Between network, cable and streaming, the modern television landscape is vast. Here are some of the shows, specials and movies coming to TV this week, January 22-28. Details and times are subject to change.

THE SINGLE PERSON 8 p.m. on ABC. The last few installments in this franchise have been a bit of a headache. (A Hollywood Reporter article raised questions about Golden Bachelor Gerry Turner’s past; he called the report “entirely fictitious.” Clayton Echard was involved in a paternity battle Last year. Then again, no “Bachelor in Paradise” couple lived up to their promises.) But having Joey Graziadei in the lead makes me excited for this season. Graziadei, a tennis instructor who was previously on Charity Lawson’s season, has returned to the Bachelor mansion and is dating 32 women. Jesse Palmer returns as host.

UNDER THE MEDITERRANEAN BRIDGE 9 p.m. on Bravo. This season of the “Below Deck” spinoff feels like it’s going on forever — partly because of a holiday hiatus, but mostly because of second flight attendant Kyle’s drama — and this week, it finally comes to an end. With Captain Sandy Yawn at the helm of another boat sailing the Mediterranean, this season’s drama included a crew member having fake certifications and everyone on deck getting sick. We don’t have to wait too long for a fresh start, though: the new season of “Below Deck” premieres on February 5.

ELECTION NIGHT: NEW HAMPSHIRE PRIMARY from 8 p.m. on different networks. Once the Iowa caucuses are over, the New Hampshire primary is next, with 22 Republican delegates up for grabs. Linsey Davis and David Muir will be presenters when the results are broadcast live on ABC. On CBS, anchor and editor Norah O’Donnell will anchor live from New Hampshire.

CHRISSY AND DAVE DINNER OUT 10 p.m. on Freeform. If you like food and gossip, this show is for you. Chrissy Teigen and Dave Chang eat their way through Los Angeles, inviting celebrity guests to dine and chat. In the first episode, they’ll be at chef Chris Bianco’s Pizzeria Bianco with Jimmy Kimmel and his wife, writer-producer Molly McNearney.

HELL’S KITCHEN 8 p.m. on Fox. Chef Gordon Ramsay concludes the 22nd season of his cooking competition this week. With winners from previous seasons serving as sous chefs on both competing teams, the fight to become head chef was intense.

AMERICAN FIGURE SKATING CHAMPIONSHIP from 2 p.m. on USA Network. With the Olympics coming to Paris this summer, watching the figure skating championships is the best way to prepare for a match. Different programs are broadcast throughout the weekend but on Thursday they start with the short couples program at 2 p.m. Next comes the rhythm dance program at 5 p.m. and the women’s short program at 8 p.m.

HIGH CITY 9 p.m. on Starz. This show is back for its third and final season this week. The series began with Jackie Quiñones (Monica Raymund), a National Marine Fisheries Service agent, traveling to Cape Cod and struggling to stay sober while trying to solve the opioid crisis. The third installment begins with Quiñones returning to his partying ways and Detective Ray Abruzzo (James Badge Dale) at the top of his game.

HARRY POTTER MARATHON starting at 8 a.m. on Syfy. Although the “Twilight” and “Harry Potter” series came out at different times and had different themes, people often ask me which one I prefer. So if you weren’t up for the “Twilight” marathon last weekend, maybe it’s your speed. The story follows young wizard Harry Potter (and Ron and Hermione, of course) through his years at Hogwarts.

SHREK I (2001) & SHREK II (2004) from 7 p.m. on E! Sometimes when life is overwhelming, it’s dark outside, and you’ve had a long week, the best cure is for a couple of ogres to fall in love and start a life together. This mini marathon features Shrek, Fiona, Donkey, Puss in Boots, the Gingerbread Man and of course, Lord Farquaad. “Like many films these days, ‘Shrek’ is a wild ride through pop culture, and what the film represents is a way of bringing back the brash, vulgar comedy of ‘The Simpsons’ and ‘South Park,’ as well as that the institutional irreverence of ‘Saturday Night Live, to a very young audience,’ Elvis Mitchell wrote in his review of the first film in 2001 for the New York Times.

LIL NAS X: LONG LIVE MONTERO 8 p.m. on HBO. Ever since Justin Bieber’s “Never Say Never,” I’ve loved tour documentaries. This one follows Lil Nas to black and queer spaces.

THE MANY LIVES OF MARTHA STEWART 9 p.m. on CNN. Whether she’s serving time in prison for insider trading, hanging out with Snoop Dogg, or creating a beautiful tablescape, there’s no doubt that Martha Stewart is endlessly fascinating. This original four-part documentary series will use archival footage of Stewart as well as interviews with friends, staff and inmates.
