Anna Maxwell Martin, so quietly compelling in “Bleak House” as Esther Summerson, is the star, along with Julie Graham, Rachael Stirling, and Sophie Rundle (pictured). Rundle, by the way, was in Matt LeBlanc’s “Episodes.”

Bet on Your Baby 8 p.m., Channel 5

Cards, babies, easily interchangeable.

Four Houses 10 p.m., TLC
