I’ve mostly cleared out my backlog in preparation for fall returns and sampling.
- The Mindy Project (Hulu) Season Premiere, Tuesday – The sixth and final season, too bad I have yet to cave on getting Hulu.
- Hand in Hand: A Benefit for Hurricane Relief Telethon (Various) Tuesday, 8pm – A telethon to aide victims.
- Riviera (SundNow) Series Premiere, Thursday – Julia Stiles stars in this 10 part thriller with other good picks like Lena Olin and Anthony LaPaglia, and yes Sundance Now is yet another pay service.
- Better Things (Fx) Season Premiere, Thursday, 10pm – This dramedy series featuring Pamela Adlon as mother of three is a total gem.
- American Vandal (Net) Series Premiere, Friday – A half hour Making a Murder-ish true crime satire.
- ACM Honors (CBS) Friday, 9pm – Nashville hosted awards.
- Emmy Awards (CBS) Sunday, 8pm – Even if they did pick the right things there’s too much tv out there for this format to still really work.
- The Vietnam War (PBS) Sunday, 8pm – 10-part, 18-hour series from Ken Burns, I really hear these are all amazing.
