If the stayed tuned after Super Bowl LII (and what a game!) to watch that night’s special showing of This Is Us, you saw an absolute tearjerker of a show – but one that managed to defy expectations while still, by the end, delivering the sad circumstances of the death of this show’s beloved patriarch, Jack, played by Milo Ventimiglia. But while Jack he’s dead, he’s not gone – not on this show, which will continue to show scenes from his life in this drama&rsqu

SERIES PREMIERE: Calling this a “premiere,” with the Acorn streaming service presenting yet another British import as part of its lineup, is really a stretch. That’s because this drama series, starring David Rintoul in the title role as a doctor establishing private practice after his stint in World War II, ran in the U.K. from 1993 to 1996. So this is a very golden oldie, even for loyal TV Anglophiles – but does offer some early looks at such familiar (to PBS viewers, an

Tonight’s episode of my favorite talk show – another new outing of one of the only TV shows I rely upon to make me laugh out loud, no matter what – features such guests as Liam Neeson and Dame Helen Mirren. Sounds like a somber crew – but with Graham Norton at the helm, expect irreverence. And hilarity. I’m guessing, for one thing, that Norton will be smart enough to point out that Mirren and Neeson co-starred in the movie Excalibur… 37 years ago. He played G

SEASON FINALE: Maya Rudolph continues her guest role as The Judge in tonight’s Season 2 finale of The Good Place, the most clever comedy series currently on TV. Last week, things didn’t look good at all for the futures of our main characters – and since that future is eternal, a Bad Place afterlife would be bad news indeed. But Michael (Ted Danson) may have one more trick to play. In fact, he’d better… though, with this show, part of its delight is its utter and in

SERIES PREMIERE: The creator of Love, Lies & Records, also shown by Acorn TV, is Kay Mellor, who is the mind behind this new six-part drama about three women who are friends, and who, for a TV series, are notably mature. Miranda Richardson, Phyllis Logan and Zoe Wanamaker star. For a full review, see David Hinckley's All Along the Watchtower.

This period serial killer series continues – and while it’s got some occasional scenes of interest, it’s also arriving at a time when dramas about serial killers, on television, outnumber those telling stories about just about any other profession or activity. So if you’re going to do one these days, it has to stand out, and not just because it’s set at an earlier time.

Every week on this show, comic Pete Holmes (playing, in this semi-autobiographical comedy series, an exaggerated version of himself) relies on the kindness of strangers. Well, not strangers, really, so much as fellow, more successful standup comics, upon whom he relies to give him advice, moral support, and a couch on which to crash for a while. Tonight’s victim? Bill Burr.

SEASON PREMIERE: This isn’t the first rodeo for Chip Baskets (Zach Galifianakis) – he started on this series taking a demeaning job as a rodeo clown. But as Season 3 begins tonight on FX, it’s the first rodeo Chip has managed to manage. Along with his twin brother Dale (also played, of course, by the delightfully deadpan Galifianakis) and their doting yet irritating mom (played, Emmy-winningly, by Louie Anderson), they’re now reviving and running the Bakersfield rodeo tha

Roseanne: The Complete Series

Roseanne is scheduled to return to ABC for nine episodes in March, 20 years after it went off the air. Most of the original cast is returning, include Roseanne Barr and her television spouse Dan, played by John Goodman, whose character will be revived (along with the show) even though he died in the prior series finale. Roseanne’s chiming chord with the working middle class was the series main draw, making it the most popular sitcom for a time. Producers are betting that, along with its reunion appeal (as with the recent reboot of Will & Grace) will make a success. On sale at Amazon for $25. –Eric Gould
