My Leftovers Usually End with a Trip to the Trash, HBO Will Probably Do Better
Sunday Night with Megyn Kelly on NBC at 7:00pm ET. Series premiere. I know it would be tasteless for her to literally dance on Roger Ailes’s corpse with this new show, but it’s basically what I’m picturing her doing.
2017 NBA Finals - Game 2 on ABC at 8:00pm ET.
Fear the Walking Dead on AMC at 9:00pm ET. Two-hour third season premiere. This has already been renewed for a fourth season, which surprises me. The Walking Dead itself went from a show that was watched by EVERYONE I knew down to almost no one I knew, but I never heard anyone talking about this one outside of a vague feeling of interest. But I have learned long before that my understanding of a show’s popularity has nothing to do with its actual popularity.
The Leftovers on HBO at 9:00pm ET. 75 minute series finale. Oh man, I don’t know if I need the largest box of tissues I can find, or a good punching pillow, or a pint of ice cream to get me through this. Maybe all of them. It’s gonna be good, probably. And in case you were wondering, no, I never got over thinking that the title is pretty damn dumb. I just got better at ignoring it.
Last Week Tonight with John Oliver on HBO at 10:15pm ET. Special time.
