Los Espookys

11 p.m., Comedy of the Sky

The motley crew of “horror techs” are finally here, two years after hitting the United States. Created by and starring Ana Fabrega, Fred Armisen and Julio Torres (of whom Andrés, heir to the blue-haired, tongue-in-cheek chocolate empire, steals the show), the show stars a group of friends. who decide to turn their obsession with scary things into a strange company. On the surface, that’s a half hour of completely ridiculous camp fun. Don’t be fooled, however; it’s a smart comedy. Hollie richardson

What could be better than watching TV? Let the Goggleboxers watch it for you, of course. There have been a lot of great series for the gang to criticize lately, but even though this is just a juicy newsletter, there is still a happy range of views. Hannah j davies

More Kentish trauma as this hilarious and catastrophic drama starring Robert Carlyle as the beleaguered Prime Minister continues.

Zodiac (David Fincher, 2007), 11:25 p.m., BBC One
Between Seven and Mindhunter, David Fincher’s interest in serial killers led him to an unsolved San Francisco-area case in the late 1960s. Jake Gyllenhaal plays cartoonist Robert Graysmith, who becomes obsessed with the Zodiac killer case when encrypted messages are sent to his journal by the murderer. Alongside journalist Paul Avery (Robert Downey Jr) and cop Dave Toschi (Mark Ruffalo), Graysmith tries to find clues to his identity. It’s a slow but gripping story of tension and frustration, with a touch of hard-earned reality. Simon wardell
