SEASON PREMIERE: This is the Season 3 premiere of LeBron James’ exceptional HBO talk show, which basically appears whenever he feels like it. He and Maverick Carter appear in almost every episode, guiding a refreshingly freewheeling and honest talk that always touches on sports, pop culture, money, and music. It takes place in a barbershop, a setting as casual as the conversation, and in this season premiere episode includes such guests as Super Bowl MVP Patrick Mahomes (pictured), Bl

This week’s new episode features Daniel Craig as guest host, even though he was booked to promote No Time to Die, the new James Bond international blockbuster – which its studio, MGM, two days ago delayed from release until November. Why? Because of fears about movie attendance dropping because of the spreading coronavirus. It could have been worse: The film in question could have been a remake of Live and Let Die. Regardless, the news of the delay of No Time

SERIES PREMIERE: If you remember the original 1985 Steven Spielberg anthology series, you might have the proper mixture of anticipation and skepticism regarding this new reboot. Yes, it has the same musical theme (by John Williams) and a similar opening title sequence, which worked so well the first time. But except for a few standout episodes, the original NBC Amazing Stories seldom featured stories that were… amazing. Apple TV+ provided only one episode for preview, and it&rsq

MINISERIES PREMIERE: This new eight-part sci-fi drama comes from FX – it’s an FX Production appearing first, and exclusively, on Hulu, in what is a new, occasional occurrence billed as “FX on Hulu.” More to the point, Devs is written, directed and executive produced by Alex Garland, writer and director of Ex Machina. It looks appropriately and impressively futuristic, and stars Nick Offerman as Forest, head of a very secretive and envelope-pushing tech

SEASON PREMIERE: It’s now Season 4 of Pamela Adlon’s FX series showcase, and she’s managed to keep capturing slices of life as a single mother, parenting three increasingly individual daughters. Adlon created this show, and stars in and directs it as well, and has evolved Better Things into an even better show – one that finds its beauty, and even its meaning, in the unexpectedly small, seemingly arbitrary moments.

SEASON PREMIERE: More strange stuff, more intriguing animated and live-action shorts – all coming from one of the most varied, and intelligent, anthology shows since The Great American Dream Machine.

SERIES PREMIERE: Two of my favorite British TV actors of recent years, Martin Freeman and Daisy Haggard, star in this new sitcom, as parents who are unmarried and absolutely harried. The message seems to be that comedy is hard, but parenting is harder – especially when your own parents still are part of the mix. Freeman, of Sherlock, TV’s Fargo, and British TV’s The Office, always exceeds expectations. And Haggard, from Episodes and

This has never happened before, and it’s not likely to happen ever again. But tonight, the best new hours of scripted television – the Season 1 unveiling of Amazon’s Hunters and the latest episode of NBC’s Lincoln Rhyme: Hunt for the Bone Collector – all happen to be programs on which my son, Mark Bianculli, happened to work. Hunters, created by David Weil and executive produced by Jordan Peele, stars Al Pacino as a Nazi hunter in 1970s

All things are relative, especially when relatives give their opinions about romantic relationships – which is what happens on tonight’s show, as Bob and Abishola’s loved ones pontificate about love and marriage.

This week’s documentary, We Believe In Dinosaurs, looks at the creation of a Kentucky theme park devoted to Noah’s Ark. And yes, dinosaurs do enter into this particular tale. Check local listings.
