Virtually every day of the year sees the premiere of a TV show. New or returning, the TV schedule is packed tighter than a skydiver’s parachute. So, with 2016 almost two weeks old, it’s important not to fall behind on what you need to be watching. Maybe you don’t need to watch every show, but you don’t want to miss out on a great series or even a show that’s got that actor you like.
To that end, make sure to set some time aside this week for at least a few hours of sampling. “Second Chance” premieres on Fox this Wednesday. USA’s “Colony” debuts Thursday. “Sesame Street” makes its HBO debut on Saturday while “Angie Tribeca” marathons its entire first season on TBS. Finally, “Billions” brings Damian Lewis back to Showtime on Sunday.
What are these shows about? Who’s in them? Who made them? Basically, why should you care? That’s what Very Good TV Podcast is here for, as this week’s episode runs down the week’s new entries with just enough information to help you sort series into “must see” and “can skip” categories. There may not be “too much TV,” but there is enough that you need to have a process. Let us help you with yours.
