SUCCESSION
August 11, 2019  | By David Bianculli

HBO, 9:00 p.m. ET

 
SEASON PREMIERE: It’s interesting, and maybe even a little scary, that two of premium cable’s drama series tonight are built, tangentially or overtly, around the media and political reach and muscle of Rupert Murdoch. The Loudest Voice, on Showtime, features Murdoch as a recurring character in its story of Fox News and Roger Ailes – and tonight’s Season 2 premiere of Succession, on HBO, continues its story of a Murdoch-like tycoon patriarch.
