Broad City 10:30 p.m., Comedy Central

This new comedy starring buddies Ilana Glazer and Abbi Jacobson began life as a series of Internet shorts. They caught the eye of both Comedy Central and Amy Poehler, who signed on to executive-produce the show, about 20-somethings trying to navigate the entry-level life in New York City. “What we did in the Web series, which we really tried to do in the TV show, which was just draw from our own lives,” Jacobson told reporters at the recent Television Critics Association press tour in Pasadena, Calif. “And then, in the show, we have a writer’s room, and so we’re always trying to draw from something real that’s happened to one of us or one of our friends and then blow it up from there. “


Wahlburgers 10:30 p.m., A&E

They sing, they dance, they act, they produce TV shows, and now they make burgers. This new reality series follows the goings-on at the titular Hingham restaurant owned by brothers Paul, Donnie, and Mark Wahlberg. Expect appearances from Wahlberg matriarch Alma, the real-life inspiration for the Johnny “Drama” character on the Mark Wahlberg-produced HBO show “Entourage,” and, of course, the guys’ friends from back in the day.
