Partial This Week on TV – 9/27/20-10/3/20

I’m not feeling great, so the schedule was kind of taking a LONG time to do. I got halfway through Tuesday and decided I just can’t do the rest tonight. I’m too tired for some reason. So…here’s Sunday & Monday. I promise to get the rest of the week done tomorrow and make a new post so you can have the entire week! 🙂


Sunday features 4 series premieres, 5 season premieres, & 3 season finales. To read more about the new series, click the link below. Otherwise, check out tonight’s schedule!

The primetime special goes behind the scenes of the original celebrity influencer culture, featuring archival interviews with Hilton, Spears, and Kardashian West, who open up about the price they paid for fame, and interviews with the star-makers who transformed them into celebrities. The two-hour program also explores how these superstars used the rise of tabloids, reality TV and celebrity news outlets to their advantage and laid the groundwork for today’s corporate celebrity empires and social media influencers.

Overnight was the complete limited series premiere of Whose Votes Counts, Explained on Netflix. The right to vote is at the foundation of America’s democracy. But not every vote is created equal. How does the system work, and can it be fixed?
Today is the series premiere of Together We Rise: The Uncompromised Story of GRM Daily on YouTube at 12PM/11AMc. This is a four-part documentary telling the story of a generation through the game-changing YouTube channel, GRM Daily and its founder Posty, the young, Black, British entrepreneur who helped contribute towards giving a new generation of talent opportunities via a global platform which in turn became a benchmark for their success. Posty’s story is not only a story of excellence within Black British business and culture but synonymous with Grime and Rap: seemingly from nowhere with the help of his peers, him and his team steps up and, in the face of adversity he upholds his own conviction against the odds, succeeds and continues to do so decades later.
Tonight is also the series premiere of The Big Bake on Food Network at 10/9c. Professional baking teams have five hours to design, bake and decorate grand-scale cake creations based on Halloween, holiday and spring themes. The bakers need to go big and bold, blowing up their designs to gigantic proportions and thinking outside the bakery box. In the end, the most ambitious, eye-popping and delicious cake will earn a $10,000 prize.
Tonight is also the series premiere of Emergency Call on ABC at 10/9c. Hosted by Luke Wilson, Emergency Call follows the dramatic moments leading up to the arrival of help rather than the events after the firefighters, police or emergency medical services teams arrive, and focuses on the extreme, suspenseful and sometimes humorous stories that flood 911 call centers.

    Take care of yourself. Truly appreciate the work you do to keep us updated on everything on TV. I’m acutely immunocompromised. Been inside more than outside since March and seems I will be for a while. Your weekly and daily emails are so helpful. Thank you.
