new and noteworthy tv: 10/2-10/8

I’ve been chipping away at some of the new shows but other than locking in a few oldies Big Bang, Lethal Weapon, Brooklyn 99, Speechless, Superstore, and The Good Place nothing new has stuck, though I might check out second eps.

  • 9JKL (CBS) Series Premiere, Monday, 8:30pm – Newly divorced and washed up actor moves back to an apartment neighboring his family, good actors so far not great buzz.
  • The Gifted (Fox) Series Premiere, Monday, 9pm – In the X-Men universe a man tasked with rounding up mutants has a change of heart as his family becomes the hunted, sounds like it has potential.
  • Grown Folks (Bounce) Series Premiere, Monday, 9:30pm – Two couples deal with ‘issues of life in hilarious ways,’ on a network someone probably gets.
  • The Halcyon (Ova) Series Premiere, Monday, 10pm – A drama set in 1940 showing London life in a 5-star hotel and the impact of war.
  • The Mayor (ABC) Series Premiere, Tuesday, 9:30pm – The new sitcom has gotten the most consistent good buzz so worth checking out a rapper turned mayor.
  • Ink Master: Angels (Spike) Series Premiere, Tuesday, 10pm – I don’t normally point out new reality, but I’m intrigued to see four female former contestants travel around competing in inking challenges as victors could be heading to Ink Master.
  • Kevin (Probably) Saves the World (ABC) Series Premiere, Tuesday, 10pm – Jason Ritter stars as a guy who doesn’t quite have his act together when he gets a ‘messenger of God’ only he can see, looks quirky.

  • Suburra (Net) Series Premiere, Friday – Italian-language organized crime.
  • Superstition (Syfy) Series Premiere, Friday – Mario van Peebles stars as head of a funeral home with a little extra responsibility dealing with the paranormal.
