Creative crafters are back, true crime offers the unexpected, Hulu introduces a femme fatale and a marvelous missus returns for season three. The week’s highlight is a Denis Leary comedy on Fox.

Dispatches: Weekly TV news
NBC, the network of “America’s Got Talent,” along with producers Fremantle and Syco, released a statement regarding former host Gabrielle Union’s exit from the show, stating that they “remain committed to ensuring a respectful workplace for all employees.” Union, according to a report in Variety, was let go from the series after complaints about a toxic workplace culture.

Tweeting about a Pete Davidson show is highly discouraged. The “Saturday Night Live” cast member has been asking fans attending his comedy shows to sign a contract that forbids them from sharing their opinions about the performance on social media. The fine for breaking the non-disclosure agreement is $1 million.

Contenders: Shows to keep on your radar
Calling all hot glue gun aficionados. Charming show, “Making It,” returns for a second season of creative crafting. Hosts Amy Poehler and Nick Offerman (Dec. 2, NBC, 10 p.m. ET) welcome a new group of talented DIY crafters who will compete for the coveted title of “Master Maker.”

As part of Fox’s holiday programming, new “comedy event” series, “The Moodys,” airs over three nights with back-to-back episodes beginning Dec. 4 at 9 p.m. ET and continuing with the same start time on Dec. 9 and Dec. 10. With a what-could-go-wrong premise, the show features Denis Leary and Elizabeth Perkins who gather with their three adult children to have the perfect Christmas holiday.

It’s all about the suspects no one saw coming in new series “An Unexpected Killer” (Dec. 5, Oxygen, 8 p.m. ET). Using interviews, crime scene examinations and re-enactments, each standalone episode features a murder investigation that takes detectives in a completely unexpected direction.

Revenge drama “Reprisal” (Dec. 6, Hulu) follows a female antihero played by Abigail Spencer, who sets out to destroy her brother and his gang after they leave her for dead. The show is from creator Josh Corbin and executive produced by “The Handmaid’s Tale’s” Warren Littlefield.

Season three of “The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel” debuts on Amazon (Dec. 6), with Miriam experiencing the highs and lows of life on tour.

Apple TV+ airs legal drama “Truth Be Told” (Dec. 6), starring Octavia Spencer as Poppy Parnell, a true-crime podcaster who reopens the murder case that made her famous. The show is based on Kathleen Barber’s 2017 novel “Are You Sleeping.”
