Succession (9 p.m., HBO) - Tonight we get the finale for a really terrific second season of HBO’s current big hit. In the finale, Logan weighs whether a member of the family or a top lieutenant will need to be sacrificed to salvage the companies tarnished rotation (be careful, cousin Greg). Also, Roman shares his hesitations about a new source of financing, and Kendall suggests a familiar alternative.

Why We Hate (10 p.m., Discovery) - This new series has evolutionary anthropologist Brian Hare searching for the origins of hate in both the past and current day, exploring what causes humans to treat each other with cruelty and violence.
