Here’s what’s happening in the world of television for Thursday, August 2. All times are Eastern.

Top pick

NFL Hall Of Fame Game: Chicago Bears Vs. Baltimore Ravens (NBC, 8 p.m.): Thursday Night Football broadcasts are moving to Fox this fall, but before that change of possession, here’s one last encroachment on broadcast’s best night of comedy: Trial & Error is preempted tonight in order to bring you this exhibition matchup between The Monsters Of The Midway and The Birds From That Edgar Allan Poe Poem. Kristin Chenoweth will resume kicking the second season of the true-crime parody through the uprights next week. (Mixed football metaphors; writer maintains possession of the What’s On Tonight. Five-yard penalty, second down. Play will resume at regular coverage.)


Regular coverage

Wild card

Marvel’s Cloak & Dagger (Freeform, 8 p.m.): When last we left the budding heroes of Cloak & Dagger, Tyrone was on the run, Tandy had a pivotal decision to make, and Freeform’s trippy superhero series was poised to wrap up its first season.
