Saturday on TV – 5/12/18

Saturday is the season finale of The Joel McHale Show with Joel McHale on Netflix at 3:01AM/2:01AMc.

There are two series premieres tonight. THe first is the premiere of Abuse of Power on Oxygen at 7/6c. Hosted by esteemed television journalist Lauren Sivan, each episode will examine the twisted and true stories where people in positions of power and prominence took advantage of their authority to commit heinous acts of crime, all stemming from their control and unyielding power. Through emotional testimonials, never-before-seen interviews and dramatic reenactments, Abuse of Power will reveal the sordid details of some of the most notorious cases of exploitation and highlight gripping firsthand accounts from the victims and their families who will stop at nothing to get the justice they deserve.

The second is the series premiere of Patrick Melrose on Showtime at 9/8c. Get ready for the lowdown on the British upper class. This five-part limited series based on the acclaimed novels by Edward St. Aubyn tracks Patrick from a privileged but deeply traumatic childhood in the South of France through severe substance abuse in his twenties in New York and, ultimately, toward recovery back home in Britain. At once harrowing and hilarious, Oscar® nominee and Emmy® winner Benedict Cumberbatch stars as the troubled titular character.

Finally, tonight is a new episode of Saturday Night Live on NBC at 11:29/10:29c, with host Amy Schumer and musical guest Kacey Musgraves.
