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

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

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

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…

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

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.

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

SEASON PREMIERE: For her Season 3 premiere, the astounding, chameleonic Tracey Ullman portrays several powerful world leaders, including German Chancellor Angela Merkel (pictured) and British Prime Minister Theresa May.

SEASON PREMIERE: To begin Season 2, The Gifted starts with a realignment of the power structure within the fugitive mutant community – then jumps forward in time six months, to explore the effects of that change in leadership. Season 1 of The Gifted was one of the better new sci-fi shows probing the minority-treatment theme by looking at human’s wariness of mutants – a theme even more timely as we begin Season 2.
