Tonight’s television has oodles to do with what sort of nation we wish to be, so without further ado, it’s time to start running…
Democratic Presidential Debate (Part 1) [Various, 9p]
Some have suggested that the first night is Elizabeth Warren at the kids table (and I love Warren so would watch this anyway), but you’ve got one-time next-big-Democrat (and only Senator to buy me and my partner movie popcorn) Cory Booker, two rising Texans (one of whom should run for friggin’ Senate, bee tee dubs!), and Jay Inslee, who is at least running for a reason bigger than himself.
True Justice: Bryan Stevenson’s Fight for Equality [HBO, 8p]
This HBO doc follows Stevenson’s “struggle to create greater fairness in the system and shows how racial injustice emerged, evolved and continues to threaten the country, challenging viewers to confront it.”
Grown-ish [Freeform, 8p]
Zoey has some more growing to do. The reality of her financial situation is setting in and her friends are not very sympathetic. Honestly, I’m not either.
