BROAD CITY 10:30 p.m. on Comedy Central. Yass, queen! Abbi Jacobson and Ilana Glazer are back for Season 4, starring as 20-something New Yorkers who breeze through their millennial lives, despite the city’s many frustrations and their laughable bad luck. The actors’ chemistry is what makes their onscreen friendship worth watching: Ms. Glazer plays an outgoing, pot-smoking slacker whose exuberance loosens up the uptight and timid Ms. Jacobson. Set in 2011, the first episode of the new season traces the horrible events that led to the best friends’ first meeting.

And after Robert (Wendell Pierce) asks Rachel (Meghan Markle) to collaborate on a pro bono case, his explosive behavior reveals an ulterior motive.

MARLON 9:30 p.m. on NBC. In this family sitcom loosely inspired by his life, the comedian Marlon Wayans plays a zany father dedicated to raising his children with his former wife Ashley (Essence Atkins), whom he can’t quite let go of.

Pair it with “NAKED,” on Netflix, a film starring Mr. Wayans as a groom who’s stuck in a humiliating nightmare.
