 “Tosh.0” begins its 12th and final season at 10 p.m. EDT Tuesday on Comedy Central, with host Daniel Tosh taking his last shots at viral videos and pop culture’s highs and lows.

The series had been renewed, but the channel’s decision to move toward a more animation-heavy lineup apparently doomed it. “I look forward to doing an animated reboot of my show on MTV in 25 years,” was Tosh’s wry response. The series, which includes sketches and parodies, will wrap its run on the cable channel with 10 episodes.

Our safe harbor during the pandemic, celebrates itself with Sunday’s Emmy Awards. Jimmy Kimmel hosts the virtual ceremony (8 p.m. EDT, ABC) that will give nominees the chance to win or lose from the comfort of their home or other preferred spot, formal dress optional.

Kim Cattrall is at the center of Fox’s “Filthy Rich,” a prime-time soap opera loaded with money and betrayal that debuts 9 p.m. EDT Monday, Sept. 21.

The premise: a Southern patriarch (Gerald McRaney) and head of a popular Christian TV network dies in a plane crash, which proves only shock No. 1 for his wife (Cattrall) and offspring. Turns out dad had three children outside of marriage, and they threaten both the wealth and reputation of the infuriated family.

The series from writer-director Tate Taylor (“The Help”) was intended to air last spring but was held to bolster Fox’s fall schedule amid pandemic-caused production delays.
