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

HE’S JUST NOT THAT INTO YOU (2009) 8:30 p.m. on E! This movie, adapted from a book with the same title by Greg Behrendt and Liz Tuccillo, has an extremely star-studded cast: Bradley Cooper, Jennifer Aniston, Ben Affleck and Scarlett Johansson, to name a few. The movie follows a group of friends and couples in their 20s and 30s who are all trying to navigate the trials and tribulations that come with relationships.

TRAINWRECK (2015) 7:30 p.m. on Freeform. The comedian Amy Schumer wrote and stars in this film about a woman who is (as the title suggests) an emotional train wreck when she meets the super successful and put-together sports doctor Aaron Conners, played by Bill Hader. While the movie has its hilarious moments, the heartfelt love story that revolves around Schumer’s character’s commitment to taking care of her sick father is the part worth investing in. “Schumer is at her strongest when she insists that women aren’t distressed damsels but — as they toddle, walk and race in the highest of heels, the tightest of skirts, the sexiest, mightiest of poses — the absolute agents of their lives and desires,” Manohla Dargis wrote in her review for The New York Times.

SURVIVOR 8 p.m. on CBS. The stakes are especially high as the accelerated, 26-day version of this longstanding reality show is wrapping up its season this week. One of the final three contestants left standing will compete to be crowned as the “Sole Survivor,” which will be followed by an after show, hosted by Jeff Probst.

VANDERPUMP RULES 9 p.m. on Bravo. In case you’ve missed the drama surrounding the latest season of this Los Angeles reality show, the tl;dr version is that two of its stars, Tom Sandoval and Ariana Madix, split after Sandoval had an affair with another co-star Raquel Leviss. Madix has already spilled lots of tea about her situation on Bravo and even in The Times, but the reunion airing this week will get even more in depth on the scandal and other drama from the season.

THE SEVEN YEAR ITCH (1955) 8 p.m. on TCM. In this classic, Richard Sherman (Tom Ewell) ships his wife and son away to Maine for the summer. Meanwhile in Manhattan, a woman (played by Marilyn Monroe) moves in upstairs from Richard, and he feels tempted to act on his feelings of desire.

COUPLES THERAPY 8 p.m. on Showtime. On the season finale of this docu-series following the therapist Orna Guralnik and her clients, some couples reach their breaking point while others use the skills they’ve learned all season to improve the quality of their relationships.

GREAT PERFORMANCES: ANYTHING GOES 9 p.m. on PBS (check local listings). The Tony Award winners Sutton Foster and Robert Lindsay perform in this recorded performance of the Cole Porter musical “Anything Goes” in London’s West End. The show is about a romance aboard the SS American, with the mood set by sailors singing and dancing on the deck.

THE SECRETS OF HILLSONG 10 p.m. on FX. This four-part docu-series (which wraps up on Friday) is an investigation by Vanity Fair reporters Alex French and Dan Adler as they reveal the scandals that have plagued the now infamous megachurch as well as the people involved in it. The show features interviews with former pastors Carl and Laura Lentz who were publicly ousted from the church as well as congregants who still support the church.

DIRTY DANCING (1987) 9:30 p.m. on CMT. It’s been decades since this film came out, and still nobody puts Baby in the corner! The story follows Frances ‘Baby’ Houseman (played by Jennifer Grey) while she vacations with her family at a Catskills resort during the summer of 1963. There, Baby meets Johnny Castle (Patrick Swayze), who enlists her as his dance partner — and naturally, they fall in love. Come for the romance, stay for the iconic lift during “I’ve Had the Time of My Life.”

SARAH SILVERMAN: SOMEONE YOU LOVE 10 p.m. on HBO. In her first filmed HBO special since 2013, the comedian Sarah Silverman performs live from the Wilbur Theater in Boston, with plenty of jokes centered around her being a New England native.

SUCCESSION 9 p.m. on HBO. Every episode this season since the patriarch Logan Roy died has been its own flavor of chaos — there has been back stabbing, party crashing and plenty of wordy threatening, but it is as uncertain as ever who will take over Waystar Royco. As its creator, Jesse Armstrong, said in an interview with The New Yorker, the title of the show is a promise. So this finale will answer the question: Who is going to be the person in charge? It could be Kendall, Roman or Shiv — or a dark horse like Tom or Greg (or an even darker one, Connor).

BARRY 10:30 p.m. on HBO. This is the fourth and final installment of this show starring Bill Hader as Barry, a contract killer. This season has focused on Barry behind bars, reflecting on everything he has done and facing the consequences of his actions. All that we really know about the ending is that it probably won’t be as happy as the characters wish it would be.
