If You Are Vaguely Unsettled by This Image You've Got the 'Channel Zero' Experience Already

Riverdale on The CW at 8:00pm ET.

The Real Housewives of New Jersey on Bravo at 9:00pm ET. I know that I throw a lot of shit in the direction of The Real Housewives and I still don’t think this should be a TV franchise, but I have to say that Bethenny Frankel from the New York cast is doing a hell of a lot of work organizing aid for Puerto Rico as well as Houston and Mexico City. I guess if the celebrity in the White House can’t be bothered to help his fellow Americans, it’s up to other celebrities.

Channel Zero: No End House on SyFy at 10:00pm ET. I’ve seen some people asking about recaps or reviews of this and, look, I am an easy scare. I had to sleep with the lights on for about two weeks while reading House of Leaves. I never re-read Salem’s Lot or Pet Sematery, and will jump at jump scares I see coming a mile away. This is… not scary. I watched two episodes and everything seemed like it was built around a sentence that hinted at something creepy, but no one actually went back and did the work to put in the actual creepy part. Or the story part, for that matter. After watching an entire first season that felt that way (“It’s a kid made of teeth!” “But why? And what does he do?” “…TEETH!”) I gave myself permission to stop. If you’ve got a super compelling reason I should start again, let me know. For now, I feel like most of the imagery would work better without a story, because nothing on screen is matching what I’d think up on my own.

Mr.Robot on USA at 10:00pm ET.

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