SEASON PREMIERE: Graham Norton is back – and to start his new season, he’s got not only the new star of Doctor Who (Jodie Whittaker, the first female Doctor, who bows Sunday on BBC America and worldwide), but the two stars of the newest incarnation of A Star Is Born: Bradley Cooper and. Lady Gaga. Oh, and Ryan Gosling. Oh, and Rod Stewart…

Last week’s Season 3 premiere was a clever, charming hour of comedy, and one that allowed star Ted Danson to play five roles – including (Cheers!) a bartender – while once again hitting reset on this show’s premise, plots and characters. This sitcom is so wildly unpredictable, and so novel in its approach, that it’s evolved into one of the best comedies on broadcast TV right now. Wait, that’s not enough praise. Make that: one of the best shows on broadcast TV

SEASON PREMIERE: Last year, this long-dormant sitcom returned to TV along with another long-dormant former hit sitcom, ABC’s Roseanne. That series is returning this season, but under a new name and without its former star, whose tweets and other behavior led to her dismissal from her own show. The stars of Will & Grace engaged in no such extracurricular controversies – and, thus, return for Season 2 tonight without incident, and with a new roster of guest stars lined up for year

Last week’s Season 11 premiere, rebooting the series after a 20-year resting period, established that Candice Bergen’s Murphy Brown had come out of retirement to accept a new job as host of a cable news morning show. This week, Murphy dives back into the fray of covering the current White House administration by attending a White House press briefing – and getting there, in part, by wearing a disguise. And by confronting, through use of carefully edited news clips, White House

Has this long-running series finally lost its edge, and its appetite to approach third-rail subjects? Uh, no. Not even close. Last week, in its Season 22 premiere, South Park did a show about multiple school shootings, including at South Park. And tonight, in an episode called “A Boy and a Priest,” South Park has Butters developing a relationship with his parish priest that leads to Catholic Church leaders being notified, and called in. And this is only week two of the new season&hel

This Australian import plays a bit like a Down Under version of Showtime’s Ray Donovan, with Scott Ryan as a fixer, and sometimes hit man, with a complicated work and home life. But it’s also, at times, surprisingly funny, and as it’s developed, its closest American counterpart may actually be HBO’s Barry. Which is, indeed, quite a compliment.

The closer this season gets to concluding, the more dread I have regarding this show’s central relationship between Jimmy (Bob Odenkirk) and Kim (Rhea Seehorn). And while last week they reteamed in a devious way that not only worked, but reunited her passion for him, that   unorthodox victory may have increased her appetite for playing on the wrong side of the law – which, very shortly, could prove to be her undoing. Or theirs.

SEASON PREMIERE: Hard to believe, and impressive to behold, but The Simpsons is beginning Season 30 tonight. That’s a lot of laughs – and a lot of garish yellow.

SERIES PREMIERE: Brian Micheal Hall of The Mayor brings his easygoing charm to this new CBS fantasy series, in which he plays an atheist who is “friended” on social media… by God. This means, I guess, that God had to register for an account – but then again, if anyone could find a way around the red tape requirements for entry… But I digress. In concept, this series isn’t far at all from Joan of Arcadia, which I watched and enjoyed. But it starred Amber Tamb
