This was the first week of the primetime networks premier week. What are you watching? What have you watched? Here’s what I’ve watched so far.
Parts Unknown Sundays on CNN. I thought it might be too so.on to watch this but I throughly enjoyed Anthony taking Kamau Bell to Kenya. It was amusing to see Kamau drink blood and partake in all the rituals Anthony takes as second nature.
The Good Doctor and Manifest Mondays on ABC. I love The Good Doctor and think Freddie Highmore is brilliant. What is it with British actors playing quirky male doctors so well that you are shocked by their natural accents? Manifest was off to a good start. The whole thing about a plane full of people hitting some sort of wormhole for time travel was hashed out very quickly and we got straight to acclimating back into present day without aging for five and a half years. There are some interesting quirks among the survivors.
The Voice on Mondays and Tuesdays on NBC. This is Banjos’s favorite show because I “sing.” Fun fact: I I cannot sing. Erica will be recapping again this season and the season is already starting off great with some big voices. I predict the winner will be a 13-year-old girl. She’s jawdroppingly good and not a speck of nerves.
This Is Us & New Amsterdam on Tuesdays NBC. This Is Us wasn’t too sad the first episode. The triplets futures will be explored this season. New Amsterdam is the newest hospital show. I enjoyed it and thought the cast was very interesting.
Mr. InBetween Tuesdays on FX (at like 11pm). This is an Australian produced show that may be a bit violent. I have two of the half hour episodes on my DVR. Both of them taped last night (this morning) the first one came on at 11. I’ll probably get to them this weekend.
The finale of Big Brother and the premiere of Survivor TONIGHT on CBS. I have it on pause right now trying to get this up so I can relax and watch it. This is one of my favorite TV nights of the year. Cho will be recapping Survivor this season! I’m recording the premieres of Empire and Star on Fox. And also A Million Little Things on NBC.
Greys Anatomy and HTGAWM return on Thursdays on ABC and Murphy Brown is back on CBS. Greys will be two hours. Not sure what will go in the Scandal slot yet.
I’m excited to have Hell’s Kitchen back on Fridays on Fox.
Please tell me what you are excited to watch this Fall! I have to go now. I am missing the Survivor première!
