Fall TV premieres continue this week, but amidst the new show craziness, Kate and Noel take a moment once again to reflect and evaluate how they’re doing on their 2016 TV resolutions. Noel resolved to watch more non-fiction and documentary television and Kate vowed to broaden her TV horizons and make sure she’s watching programming featuring voices that are underrepresented on television. Before we dive in with that, however, it’s another exciting premiere week. First we look at a full week in television, including the premieres of Bob’s Burgers, Drunk History, and Younger, the finale of Survivor’s Remorse, and notable episodes of You’re the Worst, black-ish, and The Good Place. Then we head over to the genre, reality, and drama entries, discussing the much-anticipated Luke Cage premiere, the less-anticipated Van Helsing and Secrets and Lies premieres, and the eagerly anticipated (at least among Aidan Turner stans) Poldark premiere, as well as engaging installments from Frontline, RuPaul’s Drag Race All Stars, Halt and Catch Fire, and Star Wars Rebels.

Please chime in below, or via email (theteleverse@gmail.com), or on social media with your thoughts on the non-fiction and representational TV you think we should be seeking out!
