Last week, the Season 3 premiere had the French king retreating to Victoria’s palace for protection – but by the end of the episode, her walls were being surrounded as well. And her water was breaking, too… Check local listings.

Season 3 continues, at a similarly slow pace, but with much better characters and a story line, than Season 2. Mahershala Ali stars, playing a dedicated detective in three different time lines.

SEASON PREMIERE: Pete Holmes returns with his comedy series about a standup comic trying to make it – a sort of male, current Marvelous Mrs. Maisel, with a self-deprecating edge and a more realistic sense of the comedy club world than most shows of this type. Judd Apatow is involved, so that’s not surprising. But when Pete returns from the college tour to New York, his trajectory is surprising…

SERIES PREMIERE: The latest nature documentary series from the Planet Earth group takes the very latest in modern technology (both the footage and audio are astounding) and pairs it with an unprecedented commitment of time, filming various creatures and their plights over months and years. In a way, this up-close-and-very-personal approach has a lot in common with those early Walt Disney nature documentaries of the 1950s and 1960s, giving animals names and families and dramatic story lines so th

TELEMOVIE PREMIERE: This new movie stars Benedict Cumberbatch as political strategist Dominic Cummings, who found the path, the issues, the slogans, and the allies to stoke public fervor, flaming the fans of the British movement to exit the European Union – the titular Brexit movement. The parallels to what happened just afterward in the United States, with the rise of Donald Trump’s similarly emotional presidential campaign, are implied but unavoidable. And while, for the first 20 m

The first new SNL of 2019 is televised tonight, and the guest host for the occasion is Rachel Brosnahan, star of the Emmy-winning Amazon period series sensation, The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel. And since she plays an emerging standup comic, her opening monologue ought to be especially interesting. Musical guest: Greta van Fleet.

SERIES PREMIERE: This British import from ITV, which was televised there last fall, pulls off the same tricky balancing act as Showtime’s U.S. adaptation of Shameless: It creates characters so believable that you actually begin to worry about them and even root for them. (I know, that’s the goal of every scripted show, but I rarely forget that I’m only watching actors in a TV program.) The first three episodes of Butterfly are available today, and they introduce a family that&r

SEASON PREMIERE: It’s been two months since Bill Maher presided over an installment of his live, comically barbed dissection of current events. And he returns, for the start of Season 17 of Real Time with Bill Maher, one day after new allegations suggest that President Donald Trump may have suborned perjury by directing his attorney, Michael Cohen, to lie to Congress about his real estate negotiations with Russia during his campaign for president. Among tonight’s scheduled guests are

SEASON PREMIERE: The first season of this latest offshoot in the Star Trek canon established its time line (before the events of the original series), its alternate mirror universe, and many of its characters and conflicts. Season 2 gets a bit more aggressive, boldly going where the original Star Trek went before – at least in terms of characters. We get, for example, the introduction of Anson Mount as Captain Pike, who preceded James T. Kirk as captain of the Enterprise, and who figured i
