Boardwalk Empire 9 p.m., HBO
As if this HBO series didn’t have enough acting firepower, they went and added Bobby Cannavale to the operatic tale of Prohibition-era power grabs, murders, misdeeds, and misfits. The Emmy-winning and Tony-nominated Cannavale has excelled on every platform from TV (“Third Watch,” “100 Centre St.,” “Will & Grace”) to the big screen (“The Station Agent”) to the Broadway stage (“Mauritius” and the upcoming “Glengarry Glen Ross” revival). He joins “Boardwalk Empire” as Gyp Rosetti, a New York bootlegger with a very short fuse who will likely be making trouble. This may not be so lucky for Nucky but it should be good for viewers.
Food, Faith, and Culture 8 p.m., Channel 4
Food plays a huge role in defining our cultural, and sometimes religious, traditions. This special spotlights those traditions in Judaism (with a visit to a kosher restaurant in New York), Islam (in a chat with a halal-focused food writer), and Sikhism (with a look inside a langar). Hungry yet?
