What To Watch: 10/21/2019

One of our editors picks a show that’s a homonym of her name — remember Homonym! — we miss 30 Rock‘s shows within their show.

Catherine The Great [HBO, 10p]
Helen Mirren stars in the much-anticipated, four-part series about the Russian monarch. The large cast (in what should be a sweeping examination of Russian Royalty) includes Rory Kinnear, Jason Clarke, and Gina McKee.

2019 American Humane Hero Dog Awards [Hallmark, 8p]
Who doesn’t love a great hero dog story? The internet sure does (and I bet this doesn’t get even OOOOOOONE shaaaaare!).

Black Lightning [The CW, 9p]
Lynn finds out about Jefferson’s deal with Agent Odell and it puts a strain on their relationship. The stakes have never been higher in Freeland.



  • Albert Lin uses modern tech to enhance the explorations of abandoned worlds for Nat Geo’s new show, Lost Cities with Albert Lin.
  • Travel Channel digs deep (well, probably not that deep) into the effects of encounters with the potential paranormal on their newest, My Horror Story.
  • Travel’s other newest is closer to conventionally in its purview, but still flirting with the supernatural. It’s The Alaska Triangle.
  • We were kinda wishing that Rock The Block would have something to do with hip-hop (or at worst 80s glam metal), but it’s on HGTV, so it was never that likely. It’s a… wait for it… home renovation competition.
