TVWW fan Matt Glaser is a well-known fiddler (and featured on the soundtrack of Ken Burns The Civil War)... He’s also an ardent student of Shakespeare and runs down the upcoming third season of PBS’s Shakespeare Uncovered...

SEASON PREMIERE: In real life, based on what’s been happening lately in the U.S., it might not seem to be such a great time for women’s rights, or female equality. But today, worldwide, there’s this: In the 55-year history of Great Britain’s Doctor Who series, which introduced its character of the body-shifting Doctor way back in 1963, today marks the first time that the role of the intermittently chameleonic Time Lord has been given to a female: In this case, Jodie Whitt

Once again this week, in trying to track down and give new perspective to breaking Beltway news, Circus co-host John Heilemann lands another key interview. This time, it’s with Kamala Harris, junior Democratic Senator from California.

SEASON PREMIERE: The Season 9 premiere of this very popular AMC series is called “A New Beginning.” And it can use one, after two lackluster seasons driven (and driven off course) by the bat-wielding Negan. At least this season, there’s a new primary narrative thread to address: the announced departure from the series this season of Andrew Lincoln, who stars as Rick Grimes. For a full review, see David Hinckley's All Along the Watchtower.

After coming into some fast and sizable cash, Frankie (one of two twin brothers played here by James Franco) is tapped by Candy (Maggie Gyllenhaal) to invest in “Red Hot” – which is her planned X-rated version of the “Little Red Riding Hood” fairy tale. And one of Candy’s on-camera stars. Lori (Emily Meade, pictured) has her eyes on the titular role.

Politically, this past week was a very good one for President Donald Trump. Now let’s see if John Oliver can make sense, or at least a good comic review show, out of it…

SPECIAL PREMIERE: I can’t believe it’s been almost a decade, since 2009, that Flight of the Conchords have been on TV, singing their strange songs and acting in their very strange, entertaining manner. And yes, I’ve gotten used to watching Jemaine Clement as one of the supporting players on FX’s fabulous, freaky Legion. But he and his musical partner, Bret McKenzie, are so delightfully droll as the Conchords, I couldn’t be happier that they’re back, singing so

Last week’s season premiere will prove unforgettable because of unbilled guest star Matt Damon’s forceful appearance as Brett Kavanaugh. Tonight’s episode, even before it begins, is memorable also, because its guest host is Crazy Rich Asians star Awkwafina – the first female Asian to host SNL since Charlie’s Angels star Lucy Liu appeared in 2000. Musical guest: Travis Scott.

SEASON PREMIERE: This is Season 3 of Amazon’s ambitious adaptation of the Philip K. Dick novel, and this year, the show’s alternative history drama is all over the map. Literally. Japan has achieved parity with Germany, the other victor in this reality-warping outcome to WWII, by developing a more powerful bomb. The Nazis have used firing squads, torture and propaganda to further their message and aims in this dour season opener – and in the program, a solo child’s voice

There’s quite a crew for tonight’s show, which arrives after quite a week in Washington. Doris Kearns Goodwin provides some long-range historical perspective, former Florida Rep. David Jolly provides some insider insights, journalist Soledad O’Brien and commentator Andrew Sullivan weigh in on the week’s events – and Jeff Bridges gets us all to chill a little. Which we need, sorely…
