Feeling the summer TV void? The Bachelorette is over, so is Game of Thrones, and fall shows won’t begin until September (the Olympics will only get us so far, after all). Luckily for us, there’s an endless stream of quality TV (and plenty of guilty pleasures, too) at our fingertips. The problem? With so many options, it’s hard to know what’s worth watching and what will suit your every mood. So we’re bringing you our editor-curated “watch list” each week.
Filled with quirky hidden gems, salacious reality stars, comedy geniuses, and scary newcomers that have us binge-watching (with the lights on!) until 2 a.m., we hope this weekly list will help broaden your viewing horizons and fill you with escapist joy. Whether you’re looking for hours of Netflix originals, a juicy prime time drama to watch with your bae, or just mindless background entertainment while you clean the house, we’ve got you covered thanks to the diverse TV tastes of our team. This week it’s all about the best of August’s cable offerings, and the little-known shows we’re sure will hook you. So ready your remote and dive into something new. Happy watching!
