SEASON PREMIERE: It’s the start of Season 8 for this long-running, immensely popular dystopian horror series. And this year, Rick has amassed enough allies from neighboring communities to make his war against Negan more of a fair fight. For a full review, see David Hinckley's All Along the Watchtower.

Tonight’s episode is called “Au Reservoir” – a clever title for an episode which has the police of New York City trying to clean up the streets and sweep away the prostitution around Times Square. Well, not sweep it away, so much as sweep it under the rug. And the rug, in this case, is a metaphor for indoor “massage parlors.”

Ray is used to getting his clients out of jail, and his colleagues, and even his brothers and (sometimes) his father. But in tonight’s episode, the person Ray is striving to free from incarceration is his own daughter, Bridget.

This has been a great season for Curb, once again – how about Salman Rushdie appearing as himself, last week, to give Larry tips on the unexpected babe magnet appeal of “fatwa sex”? But tonight’s episode promises something even more delicious: Bryan Cranston, guest starring as Larry’s therapist, and dueling with him verbally in a counseling session. Cranston, of course, has worked with David before – on Seinfeld, where Cranston memorably played a dentist.

In this second episode of this shows second season, Letty (Michelle Dockery) resigns herself to returning to her life of crime, and not only persuades her man to go along, but also to allow her to take control. After all, he may be a hit man – but she’s a con woman.

Last week, Dirk Gently began its second season. What happened? It’s still way too early to tell, because that’s the kind of series this is. Tonight there’s a discovery of a body – or, at least, a connection between the body and another of Dirk’s cases. Maybe.

Graham Norton rarely makes room for politicians on his guest couch, but tonight’s show is a high-profile exception. One of his guests tonight is Hillary Clinton –and while she’s no stranger to late-night talk show appearances, The Graham Norton Show is a very different kind of animal – freewheeling, uninhibited, and usually requiring lengthy interaction with the week’s other guests, who, in this case, include actor Jeff Goldblum. But I wouldn’t be surprised if

Last week, in the Season 3 premiere, Rebecca (Rachel Bloom) came back from her jilted-at-the-altar fiasco with a dramatic new look and a questionably thirst for revenge. She’s abandoned some of those plans, but not others – and her revenge quest continues tonight, with even more songs for (and from) jilted lovers.

The Dana Carvey Show

The new Hulu documentary about SNL veteran Dana Carvey’s failed 1996 ABC sketch comedy show is now available. Too Funny to Fail recounts how the iconoclastic series, cancelled after seven episodes, got off to a horrendous start with advertisers, after a sketch with Carvey as then-President Bill Clinton, eager to demonstrate his compassion, suckled a baby, puppies and a kitten simultaneously from canine-like array of prosthetic nipples. Carvey’s edgier side turned out to be somewhat ill-suited for prime time, and the show lost six million viewers before the premiere episode ended. The show is now considered a milestone however for it’s now A-list stable of performers and writers: Louis CK, Steve Carell, Stephen Colbert and Robert Smigel. Includes the final unaired eighth episode and deleted scenes. On sale at Amazon for $18. –Eric Gould
