Everybody back in the pool: Tonight’s episode returns to “The Pool,” a memorable setting, and episode, from Season 1, for more memories… and more conflicts. Meanwhile, on the set of M. Night Shyamalan’s new movie, Kevin has a big scene (pictured), and, when the cameras are through rolling, an even bigger conversation.

Last week’s premiere episode laid on the improbabilities rather thickly, and tried a bit too much to be ABC’s newest mysterious-mystery series – but Allison Tolman from FX’s Fargo remains an instantly appealing series lead, and, playing police chief Jo Evans here, she’s helped by such likable veterans as Clancy Brown and Donald Faison. Alexa Swinton plays the mysterious little girl she finds at a beachfront plane crash site, and after one episode, all we k

Last week, Candy’s wealthy new boyfriend offered her all the money she needed to make her next porn film – but she turned him down, preferring to raise the funds herself and keep their relationship on a personal level. Tonight, she seeks out new sources for money, and also looks for some stars for her upcoming movie. One place she might look: to her former star Lori (Emily Meade), who’s now trying to shift to performing as background talent in mid-Eighties music videos for the

SEASON PREMIERE: This CBS series launched in 1968, and is the oldest continuous TV series in prime time. And after more than half a century, 60 Minutes still manages to win its time slot, and often rank in the week’s Top 10. How? Because it still delivers, week in and week out, some of the best reporting on some of the most current and/or fascinating subjects. Tonight’s Season 52 opener is a perfect example: It leads with Scott Pelley’s interviews with House Speaker N

This documentary series returned last week – apparently, just in time. What I can’t wait for, anticipating tonight’s show, is how the reporters on this show dispatch themselves, and where – and what they get, when news on the hill about the whistleblower accusations is traveling so fast and furiously.

Bill Maher had his chance to comment on the week’s news on his live Friday HBO show. Saturday Night Live had its chance, last night. And tonight, in which I suspect will be the best of the three, John Oliver gets his turn…

SEASON PREMIERE: Every time SNL starts a new season, I get a little nostalgic, and feel a little older. The original premiere of the first season of Saturday Night Live was the way I talked my way onto the TV critic job for a real newspaper, Florida’s The Gainesville Sun (“Hey, this is a college town, I’m a college student, this new NBC show is aimed at college kids – why not let me review it?”). And now, since tonight marks the Season

SERIES PREMIERE: Ryan Murphy was lured to Netflix with a very lucrative contract, and this new series is the initial result of that new arrangement. Ben Platt from Broadway’s Dear Evan Hansen stars as an ambitious high-schooler who runs for class president, and is faced with all manner of obstacles and opponents while pursuing his goal. Co-stars include some familiar faces from some of Murphy’s previous series – Gwyneth Paltrow from Glee, Dylan McDermott fro

This is the sort of news week that makes a show like this required viewing. And tonight, Maher has increased the potency even more by scheduling two of his most reliably talkative and provocative guests: author Salman Rushdie and former Massachusetts Democratic Congressional Representative Barney Frank.
