This week is a little bit lighter than the past few because of sports. And specifically, the most boring of all sports. But we’ll bet to that later. The point is, even in a short week we still get something special and in this case, it’s BoJack Horseman. Eight new episodes hit this week and I will have to watch them all in one sitting, as is my tradition.
Here’s what to watch on TV this week!
8-10 Dancing with the Stars – I don’t know what the theme is this week, but I’m furious that the non-elimination last week stuck us with at least one more week of Sean Spicer. Even more furious that he did a Toy Story dance and ruined something I love. Monster!
9-10 The Deuce – Lori revisits The Deuce which means she’s returning to that block in New York City and this is not a weird way of saying she’s coming back to the show. That might be confusing to people who aren’t watching, which I assume is most of you.
The World Series begins tonight! That exclamation point indicates a level of enthusiasm that I do not possess. This will mean FOX is mostly showing baseball this week and the other networks are mostly showing repeats.
8-8:30 It’s the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown – A beloved holiday classic that still absolutely holds up except for the very long Red Baron sections. I wonder if those are trimmed in modern showings to accommodate increased commercial lengths.
10-11 Treadstone – The first episode was pretty good! This week, Tara travels abroad and Doug has nightmares. I really appreciate their commitment to not letting this sound exciting.
8-9 Survivor – No information available! I don’t think CBS realizes how dorky the Rob and Sandra segments are. I like them, but they’re super dorky.
10-10:30 It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia – The gang goes to the zoo and a text change goes awry, so they learn how to communicate from meerkats. I know it sounds like I made that up, but I promise you, I did not.
10:30-11 Cake – The pretty good anthology series continues! Feel free to use that as a pull quote.
8:30-9 Perfect Harmony – Arthur’s father in law tries to take the family houseboat back, and it’s just occurring to me how long it’s been since I’ve watched a show where somebody lives on a houseboat. The last one I can think of is Kellerman on Homicide, but there must have been something since then.
9-9:30 The Good Place – Michael and Jason hatch a plan. Again, my friends are watching Season Three now, so I can’t say more than that. I guess I’ve spoiled that Michael and Jason are still on the show. Oops!
8:30-9 The Unicorn – Wade realizes that his daughter is getting special treatment at school while Delia and Forrest get a non-Wade centered subplot. We’re branching out!
10-11 Evil – Kristen and David assess an exorcism on Halloween night. How is this show on CBS? This thing is pushing all kinds of boundaries on the network that is exclusively aimed at your parents. It’s wild.
10-10:30 Mr. Inbetween – Ray does favors, but he doesn’t forgive. Since this is Australian, they actually spelled it “favours” in the listing, but I didn’t want to confuse anybody.
BoJack Horseman – The first half of the sixth and final season hits today and I may just be wired from knowing the show is ending, but the trailer made me cry. And as is tradition, I’ll watch the whole thing tonight after work. No sleep for EJ!
9-10 The Walking Dead – No information available! I assume that, like the last 20 episodes, they’ll be facing the menace of those people who wear zombie masks.
9-10 Watchmen – I am not looking at the listing because the premiere hasn’t aired as I write this and I would like to go in as fresh as possible. I am very excited about this show!
10-10:30 Silicon Valley – SEASON PREMIERE! Richard finds out his promise not to collect user data is threatened. Also, Kumail Nanjiani got cast in a Marvel movie and now he’s jacked so look for Dinesh to get bigger as the season goes on.
10:30-11 Mrs. Fletcher – SERIES PREMIERE! Kathryn Hahn starts in this miniseries adapting the Tom Perrotta novel. The last Tom Perrotta adaptation was The Leftovers, so obviously I’m all in.
“I’m excited to bond with April. She’s like the little sister I never had. Because the little sister I do have is normal and not terrifying.” — Ben Wyatt
“Remember that time you broke some of my ribs? And then all the remaining ones?” — Sterling Archer
