Drunk History 10 p.m. Comedy

Locals who have been enjoying Comedy Central’s new series featuring intoxicated comedians attempting to retell tales of American history—and re-enactments that come off just as tipsy—may want to tune in for some of the hair of the dog that bit you tonight, as the show turns its bloodshot eyes to Boston. Winona Ryder, Michael Cera, and Nick Offerman makes appearances in this episode, which chroni-[hic!], chroni-[hic!], chronicle the stories of the Puritan-irking Mary Dyer, as well as the Gardner Museum art heist, and a notorious Boston arsonist. (And no, they won’t be talking about what happened at your college graduation party, so don’t worry.)
