The Bold Type on Freeform at 9:01pm ET. First season finale.
American Horror Story: Election Night on FX at 10:00pm ET. Seventh season premiere. I thought this season was going to be called “Cult”? Whatever. Listen, Ryan Murphy, I don’t need your take on election night. It was less than a year ago. At this point I still have a physical aversion to wearing my “H” tee shirt even in my own apartment AND persistent TMJ issues that I can trace back to that night to say the least. And this is because I am a wildly privileged person in society who doesn’t need to fear worse repercussions (yet) even though a lot of people are already living through them, including all the DACA recipients desperately trying to understand their futures at this very moment. I don’t need a fictional representation of it in my life. I know we all work through these things in our own ways, but I find it a little selfish that you’re inflicting this on us.
Hard Knocks: Training Camp with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on HBO at 10:00pm ET. 12th season finale.
A Season with Navy Football on Showtime at 10:00pm ET. Third season premiere. I mostly understand the Naval Academy’s athletics program through their stiff croquet rivalry with St.John’s College, but that’s because I’m related to an alarming number of people who attended St.John’s College. They’re pretty good at getting plebes hoisted up a greased up obelisk. I hear the middies are also quite good at football, but that seems like the least interesting thing about them.
Shooter on USA at 10:00pm ET. Second season finale.
