Critic’s corner: What’s on TV Wednesday

Nova: Asteroid: Doomsday or Payday?  9 p.m., Channel 2

It seems likely that most people don’t spend a lot of time thinking about asteroids unless Bruce Willis is trying to save Earth from being hit by one — perhaps while Aerosmith performs a terrible ballad. But occasionally, a large one makes some kind of news — like the recent asteroid that exploded over Siberia injuring more than 1,000 people and doing damage in six cities — and we’re reminded that those suckers can be truly devastating. (Just ask T. Rex and his buddies.) But there is also a group of people less concerned about an extinction-level event and more interested in mining asteroids — that don’t, you know, wipe us out — for their precious and lucrative elemental contents, like iron, nickel, and platinum.

South Park  10 p.m., Comedy Central

Black Friday is dark and full of terrors, and the kids in “South Park” know it. Thus we get this “Game of Thrones” parody paired with the absurdity of post-Thanksgiving shopping hell. Winter is coming and it’s not going to be pretty with 80 percent off gaming consoles.

Arrow  8 p.m., the CW

Killer “Queen”?

Inside the NFL  9 p.m., Showtime

Key & Peele  10:30 p.m., Comedy Central

Funny & funnier.
