Tonight is the series premiere of Young Sheldon on CBS at 8:30/7:30c. For 9-year-old Sheldon Cooper (Iain Armitage), it isn’t easy growing up in East Texas. Being a once-in-a-generation mind capable of advanced mathematics and science isn’t always helpful in a land where church and football are king. And while the vulnerable, gifted and somewhat naïve Sheldon deals with the world, his very normal family must find a way to deal with him. The Big Bang Theory’s multiple Emmy Award winner Jim Parsons narrates as Adult Sheldon. This single-camera, half-hour comedy gives us the chance to meet Sheldon in childhood, as he embarks on his innocent, awkward and hopeful journey toward the man he will become.
Tonight is also the series premiere of Me, Myself & I on CBS at 9:30/8:30c. Bobby Moynihan stars in a comedy about the defining moments in one man’s life over three distinct periods: as a 14-year-old in 1991 (played by Jack Dylan Grazer), at age 40 in present day (Moynihan), and at age 65 in 2042 (played by John Larroquette). During these pivotal periods of yesterday, today and tomorrow, Alex always finds a way to move forward with determination and humor, knowing his life story isn’t defined by the bad things that happen to him, but instead by how he chooses to deal with them. The show also stars Brian Unger as Ron in 1991 & present day; Christopher Paul Richards as Justin in 1991; Jaleel White as Darryl in present day; Kelen Coleman as Abby in 2042; Mandell Maughan as Maggie in 1991; Sharon Lawrence as Eleanor in 2042; & Skylar Gray as Abby in present day.
Tonight is also the series premiere of The Brave on NBC at 10/9c. While D.I.A. Deputy Director Patricia Campbell (Anne Heche) and her team of analysts wield the world’s most advanced surveillance technology from Washington, D.C., Adam Dalton and his heroic Special Ops squad of highly trained undercover specialists use their unbreakable bond and commitment to freedom to save lives of innocent people and execute missions in some of the most dangerous places in the world. The cast includes Anne Heche, Mike Vogel, Sofia Pernas, Tate Ellington, Natacha Karam, Demetrius Grosse, Noah Mills and Hadi Tabbal.
Finally, tonight is the series premiere of The Good Doctor on ABC at 10:01/9:01c. Shaun Murphy (Freddie Highmore, Bates Motel), a young surgeon with autism and savant syndrome, relocates from a quiet country life to join a prestigious hospital’s surgical unit. Alone in the world and unable to personally connect with those around him, Shaun uses his extraordinary medical gifts to save lives and challenge the skepticism of his colleagues.

Tonight is the series premiere of SEAL Team on CBS at 9/8c. The show stars David Boreanaz (Bones, Angel) in a military drama that follows the professional and personal lives of the most elite unit of Navy SEALs as they train, plan and execute the most dangerous, high stakes missions our country can ask of them. Deployed on clandestine missions worldwide at a moment’s notice, and knowing the toll it takes on them and their families, this tight-knit SEAL team displays unwavering patriotism and fearless dedication, even in the face of overwhelming odds. It also stars A.J. Buckley (CSI: NY), Jessica Pare (Mad Men, Jack & Bobby), Max Thieriot (Bates Motel), Neil Brown Jr (Dirk Gently’s Holistic Detective Agency), & Toni Trucks (Barbershop, Made in Jersey).
Tonight is also the series premiere of Best Baker in America on Food Network at 10/9c. Through six episodes, bakers from around the country must showcase their baking skills and creativity, as they are tasked with challenges that not only test their technical proficiency, but also their ability to execute under pressure, while under the watchful eyes of the judges: Food Network Star winner Jason Smith and Food Network’s Marcela Valladolid. Each episode the competitors must compete in two difficult rounds, including a Skills Challenge that tests their mastery of the essential technical skills of baking, followed by a Master Challenge that tests their prowess in working with specific flavors and ingredients to create the most authentic and delicious versions of classic baked delights. In the end, the judges help determine which baker moves one step closer to winning $25,000 and earning the title of Best Baker in America! Adam Rapoport (former editor-in-chief of Bon Appetit and editorial director of Epicuirous) hosts.
Tonight is also the series premiere of Face Value on BET at 10/9c. This is an edgy new 30-minute game show that will finally answer the age-old question, “Can you judge a book by its cover?” Hosted by Deon Cole (black-ish, Barbershop) with outrageous woman-on-the-street segments from Tiffany Haddish (Girls Trip, Carmichael Show), this series is flipping the script to award cash and prizes for correctly guessing facts about strangers from all walks of life…based solely on their appearance and a few personal details. Face Value will humorously break down stereotypes, expose prejudices, and celebrate the human spirit by highlighting the commonalities and differences among people of various backgrounds, races, religions, beliefs and life experiences.
Tonight is also the series premiere of Liar on Sundance Channel at 10/9c. The show stars Joanne Froggatt (Downton Abbey) and Ioan Gruffudd (Forever, Ringer, Fantastic Four). Liar introduces Laura Nielson (Froggatt) a bright and dedicated teacher, and Andrew Earlham (Gruffudd), a renowned surgeon whose son is a student at Laura’s school. After a seemingly innocent date, a series of volatile accusations capsize their lives. Secrets and lies slowly unravel in a tense and gripping series where everyone is lying in some way until the truth ultimately reveals itself.
Tonight is also the series premiere of 50 Central on BET at 10:30/9:30c. BET’s first variety comedy showcase will be unlike anything seen from the genre before. Along with unprecedented sketches, the 30-minute show will feature hidden camera pranks, musical performances, and A-list celebrity guests to create the ultimate late night party…all handpicked and hosted by 50 Cent. Few artists have had as much crossover success as Jackson and he showcases his talents as an MC, actor and producer for a fresh take on the variety series.
Finally, tonight is the series premiere of Rosehaven on Sundance Channel at 11/10c, followed by a 2nd new episode at 11:40/10:40c. SundanceTV has acquired the U.S. rights for season one of the Australian comedy series Rosehaven and will co-produce season two with The Australian Broadcasting Corporation (ABC), Screen Tasmania and Screen Australia. Written and created by real-life best friends and comedians Luke McGregor (Luke Warm Sex, Utopia) and Celia Pacquola (Utopia, The Beautiful Lie), this is an eight-episode comedy series set in rural Tasmania about two close friends with big plans. Luke McGregor plays Daniel McCallum, who returns to his rural Tasmanian hometown, Rosehaven, to help his intimidating mother with her real estate business. He gets a surprise when his best friend from the mainland, Emma (Pacquola) turns up on his doorstep…on the run from a marriage so fresh her husband is still on their honeymoon. In no time these two friends are thrown into the center of small town life with Daniel, confronted at every turn by the ghosts of his adolescent past and a town that hasn’t moved on while Emma is lapping up her anonymity in Rosehaven and newfound life on the land. Soon enough, these two best buddies find both their friendship and their sanity put to the test by the charming, but deeply eccentric, townsfolk of Rosehaven. The series also co-stars Kris McQuade (Wentworth), Katie Robertson (The Kettering Incident), and David Quirk (Please Like Me).

Tonight is the series premiere of The Rundown with Robin Thede on BET at 11/10c. BET joins forces with Executive Producer Chris Rock to bring the African American female voice to late night news satire. Comedian and former head writer and contributor for The Nightly Show, Robin Thede, gives her hilariously unique take on the week’s headlines in politics and pop culture in a fast-paced, no-holds-barred 30-minute late night show featuring biting social commentary, sharp sketch comedy and in-your-face pop culture parody.
Tonight is also the complete first season premiere of Big Mouth on Netflix at 3:01AM/2:01AMc. This is a 10-episode, half-hour edgy adult animated comedy from real-life best friends Nick Kroll (Kroll Show, The League) and Andrew Goldberg (Family Guy) about the glorious nightmare that is teenaged puberty. Comedian John Mulaney lends his voice to the character of Andrew, while Kroll (who serves as co-creator, executive producer) voices many including best friend Nick. Maya Rudolph, Jason Mantzoukas, Jordan Peele, Fred Armisen, Jenny Slate, and Jessi Klein are among those who lend their voice to the series.
Tonight is also the complete first season premiere of Paul Hollywood’s Big Continental Road Trip on Netflix at 3:01AM/2:01AMc. Gear up for a fast-paced journey as celebrity chef and avid auto enthusiast Paul Hollywood takes in the cars and culture of France, Italy and Germany.
Finally, tonight is the complete first season premiere of Tin Star on Amazon at 3:01AM/2:01AMc. Starring Tim Roth (Lie to Me, The Hateful Eight) and Christina Hendricks (Mad Men), this is a tale of the corruption of innocence, of murder, of grief and of all consuming revenge. Set in the majestic Canadian Rockies, it tells the story of Jim Worth (Roth), a former British detective now small town police chief, who brings his family to the tiny, tranquil town of Little Big Bear for a better life. When a vast new oil refinery, fronted by corporate liaison Elizabeth Bradshaw (Hendricks), opens nearby and their new home is flooded with workers looking for drugs, gambling and prostitution, Jim has to work hard to protect his family and the town from organized crime. Then crime strikes back. And when Jim’s family suffers a shocking tragedy, old, dark and dangerous secrets surface. We discover that Jim is not the man we think he is but is in fact “Jack”…the professional name for his alcoholic alter-ego: a man more unpredictable, more charismatic and infinitely more menacing than Jim. Part drama, part thriller and part dark comedy, Tin Star is an exhilaratingly smart, breathlessly suspenseful thrill ride of a show as deceit, guilt, love, and all-consuming rage lead inexorably to a gut-wrenching finale. It also stars Abigail Lawrie, Christopher Heyerdahl, Genevieve O’Reilly, Ian Puleston-Davies, Kevin Hanchard, Oliver Coopersmith, Roark Critchlow, Ryan Kennedy, Sarah Podemski, & Stephen Walters.

Tonight is the 2-hour series premiere of Marvel’s Inhumans on ABC at 8/7c. The show explores the never-before-told epic adventure of the royal family including Black Bolt, the enigmatic, commanding King of the Inhumans, with a voice so powerful that the slightest whisper can destroy a city. After the Royal Family of Inhumans is splintered by a military coup, they barely escape to Hawaii where they are greeted with surprising interactions with the lush world and humanity around them. Now they must find a way to reunite with each other and return to their home before their way of life is destroyed forever. It stars Anson Mount, Eme Ikwuakor, Isabelle Cornish, Iwan Rheon, Ken Leung, Mike Moh, Serinda Swan, Sonya Balmores, & Ellen Woglom.
Tonight is the series premiere of Active Shooter: America Under Fire on Showtime at 9/8c. This documentary series delivers an in-depth exploration of mass shootings and their devastating consequences. From the first-hand perspective of survivors, families of the victims, witnesses and heroic first responders, the series goes beyond the sensationalistic coverage of these nightmarish moments to offer a comprehensive report on these tragic events. Each of the eight episodes focuses on one of the numerous active shooter incidents that have occurred in the United States, to provide a thoughtful and comprehensive examination of one of the most important issues of our time. Making a careful study of the attacks at Aurora, San Bernardino, Charleston, the Washington D.C. Navy Yard, Santa Monica, Oak Creek, Orlando, and the incident that proved a fundamental turning point for the country, Columbine, the show analyzes the full arc of each incident…emotional as well as procedural. Even when there is no doubt about the guilt or cruelty of the shooter, identifying the root cause of mass shootings remains profoundly challenging. From the precipitating factors for each event to the heroic bravery and compassion of the first responders as they come upon the scene…and the ongoing impact on survivors, their families and communities…the show strives to create a forum for understanding, discussion and debate, keeping the lives and loss of the victims paramount amid the need to confront this grave pandemic.
