Make Uncaught TypeError not stop Javascript

I have a script which is polling for new data every 10seconds and doing things with the data.
Is there a way that if the browsers incurs an Uncaught TypeError - that the polling just tries again rather than stopping the js?

Try with an if statement like this:
if((typeof data) === "undefined"){
//code here
}

just put the code that throw the "Uncaught TypeError" in a try catch

setInterval(function() {
       try {
            // put the code here
       }
       catch(error){}
}, 10 * 1000);
