The US election has drowned out almost everything that isn’t the US election. And this week’s TV is no different. A few big name series returns, but nothing that doesn’t have name recognition. As always, I’ve listed all of the new and returning shows below.
My big viewing suggestion for this week: We lost Sean Connery during the week. Wyy not spend your TV time this weekend with some Connery films. Me being me, I’d put in a strong recommendation for The Untouchables. But, I’m going to check out two of his films that have been high on my ‘I really should get around to watching this’ list: Zardoz and The Man Who Would Be King.
