Saturday on TV – 8/22/15

Saturday is the season finale of Aquarius on NBC at 9/8c.

Tonight is also the series premiere of Blunt Talk on Starz at 9/8c. Set in Los Angeles, the story follows Walter Blunt, a British import intent on conquering the world of American cable news and the fallout from his well-intentioned, but mostly misguided decision-making, both on and off the air. Through the platform of his nightly cable news show, Blunt is on a mission to impart his wisdom and guidance on how Americans should live, think and behave. Besieged by network bosses, a dysfunctional news staff, numerous ex-wives and children of all ages, Blunt’s only support is the heavy-drinking, devoted manservant he transplanted from the U.K. to join him in Los Angeles. The cast is led by Patrick Stewart (Star Trek) in the role of Walter Blunt, Jacki Weaver (Silver Linings Playbook) as Rosalie, Blunt’s tough and motherly producer-manager, and Adrian Scarborough (The King’s Speech) as Harry, Blunt’s manservant. Dolly Wells (Doll & Em) who was cast as Celia, Blunt’s senior producer and head writer, with Timm Sharp (Enlightened) who was cast as Jim, Blunt’s head writer, round out the cast.

Finally, tonight is the season premieres of Ghost Adventures on Travel Channel at 9/8c & Survivor’s Remorse on Starz at 9:30/8:30c, as well as the season premiere of The Half Hour on Comedy Central at 12AM/11PMc, followed by a 2nd new episode at 12:30AM/11:30PMc.
