Tonight is the series premiere of The Spanish Princess on Starz at 8/7c. Returning to the world of Tudor royal court intrigue, The Spanish Princess is a vivid and captivating story told uniquely from the point of view of the women, which also sheds light on a previously untold corner of history: the lives of people of color, living and working in 16th century London. Catherine of Aragon (Charlotte Hope) is the strong-willed young Princess of Spain, who has been promised the English throne since she was a child. She arrives in a grey, rain-lashed England with her glorious and diverse court including her ladies-in-waiting Lina (Stephanie Levi-John) — a Spanish noble of African Iberian descent — and the sweet and free-spirited Rosa (Nadia Parkes). When her husband Prince Arthur (Angus Imrie) dies suddenly, the throne seems lost to Catherine until she devises an audacious plan and sets her sights on the new heir, the charismatic and headstrong Prince Harry (Ruairi O’Connor), who will one day rule as King Henry VIII. The show also stars Aaron Cobham, Alan McKenna, Alexandra Moen, Alicia Borrachero, Dame Harriet Walter, Daniel Cerqueira, Elliot Cowan, Georgie Henley, Jordan Renzo, Laura Carmichael, Olly Rix, Philip Cumbus, & Richard Pepper.

Tonight is the series premiere of Klepper on Comedy Central at 10:30/9:30c. Klepper is a docuseries that follows host Jordan Klepper as he hits the road and leaves the comfort of his desk behind. Whether he’s in a capsized boat with environmental protesters in a Louisiana bayou or waiting to post bail at the Fulton County Jail in Georgia, Jordan is on the front lines of American activism.
 
Tonight is the complete first season premiere of Jailbirds on Netflix at 3:01AM/2:01AMc. At the Sacramento County Jail, incarcerated women fight the power and one another as they try to make the best of life — and love — on the inside.
 
Finally, tonight is the complete first season premiere of The Society on Netflix at 3:01AM/2:01AMc. The Society follows a group of teenagers who are mysteriously transported to a facsimile of their wealthy New England town, left without any trace of their parents. As they struggle to figure out what has happened to them and how to get home, they must establish order and form alliances if they want to survive. The series is a modern take on Lord of the Flies. Chris Keyser (The Last Tycoon, Tyrant, Party of Five) will write and executive produce the series that will span 10 episodes, and Marc Webb (500 Days of Summer, The Amazing Spider-Man) will serve as director and executive producer. Kathryn Newton (Big Little Lies, Lady Bird) stars as Allie, who has lived her entire life in the shadow of her more remarkable older sister Cassandra (Rachel Keller, Legion). Whatever Allie’s strengths are, she has very little sense of them. Allie inspires her sister to take charge of the group as they are thrust in to the mysterious new world. Also starring are Alex Fitzalan (Crash & Burn), Grace Victoria Cox (Heathers, Now Apocalypse), Jack Mulhern (Locke & Key), Kristine Froseth (Let the Right One In, Looking for Alaska), Olivia Dejonge (Will), Sean Berdy (Switched at Birth), Toby Wallace (Return to Nim’s Island), Salena Qureshi, Natasha Liu Bordizzo, Jose Julian, Jacques Colimon, Gideon Adlon, & Alex MacNicoll.

Tonight is the series premiere of Wu-Tang Clan: Of Mics and Men on Showtime at 9/8c. As the group marks the 25th anniversary of their breakout debut album Enter The Wu-Tang (36 Chambers), the series looks back on their career, combining intimate and reflective interviews from each of the nine living members with never-before-seen archival footage and performances. The series follows the founding members – RZA, GZA, Ol’ Dirty Bastard, Inspectah Deck, Raekwon the Chef, U-God, Ghostface Killah, Method Man, Masta Killa and Cappadonna – many of whom were childhood friends in the hardscrabble world of ’70s and ’80s Staten Island and Brooklyn. Their ingenuity and entrepreneurial spirit brought them together to overcome the poverty, violence and oppression of their neighborhoods. But it was music and their shared lyrical genius that allowed them to form the most recognized musical movement in the world, all while walking the treacherous tightrope that links business with brotherhood.

    If you can put teen mom showings that would be amazing !

    • Jenny says:

      Hi,

      I’m sorry, but due to personal beliefs, I won’t post anything like Teen Mom or any of the child pageant shows, etc. You can look at The Futon Critic if you need to find that.

      • Alicia says:

        I appreciate that Jenny. I think parents who subject their children to being on shows like that is abuse. I use your site all the time. Much love and thanks <3

    sneaky pete comes back to netflix on Friday

    • Jenny says:

      If you notice, I list Netflix shows (& Amazon, etc, those shows that air at 3:00AM ET) on the listings for the night before, since it actually comes out on that overnight. So Sneaky Pete is listed on Thursday. 🙂

    • Josh f says:

      Sneaky Pete is Amazon, and desus and Mero is missing from Monday and Thursday
