"When Does a Monotone Voice-over From an Unreliable Narrator Become a Bad ASMR Video Instead of a Good TV Show?"

Riverdale on The CW at 8:00pm ET. Second season premiere.

Dynasty on The CW at 9:00pm ET. Series premiere. No matter how rebooted series handle the reintroduction, “series premiere” or “season X premiere”, I don’t like it. Can’t tell you why, but both feel disingenuous. I have no better solution to offer.

Mr.Robot on USA at 10:00pm ET. Third season premiere. I fell off this at the beginning of the second season, when I felt like they were drawing out the “reveal” longer than necessary just to show off how clever they could be in the framing of it. I’ll rely on you good people to let me know if it’s worth plowing through season 2 some weekend to get caught up to this season.

Broad City on Comedy Central at 10:30pm ET.

Full Frontal with Samantha Bee on TBS at 10:30pm ET.
