Fall TV Shows 2018 Guide
The dog days of summer and the early fall are too hot to do much else than lounge around. Naturally, television programming executives figure you might as well do this in front of some sort of screening apparatus (actually, they want you to do everything in front of your monitor as long as you keep it on).
The new shows coming in August and September are a mix of campy fun (Rob Lowe is directing and starring in a remake of The Bad Seed for Lifetime), important investigative pieces (Starz’s America to Me; ID’s Sugar Town), and prestige programming that’s mandatory viewing for the television elitist (Netflix’s Maniac). There’s also returning favorites like the second season of HBO’s The Deuce and USA’s The Sinner.
