"The Fix"

To its credit, “The Fix” doesn’t try to pretend this is anything other than what it is: pure wish fulfillment, a postmortem revenge fantasy. Beyond that intrigue, there isn’t much here.


Comedian Amy Schumer (“I Feel Pretty”) returns to stand-up with a run-of-the-mill performance in her latest Netflix comedy special “Growing,” shot in Chicago.


Rather than crafting a story that will organically offer up emotional gravitas, “The Village” exploits elements that will guarantee cheap sympathy.

If you take “Turn Up Charlie” for what it is — a casual show about a DJ nanny — then there’s enough charm to salvage it. It’s meant to be an outrageous, feel-good show, and it honestly achieved that feat.

Lilly Singh

Singh represents the changes in Hollywood that are necessary to keeping the diversity train rolling – without diverse people in powerful positions, Hollywood may be doomed to a white, testosterone-laden, future.

Bob Saget

“Videos After Dark” is perhaps Bob Saget’s driest return to television possible. He makes his comeback as the host of this show after hosting “America’s Funniest Home Videos” for eight years, from 1989 to 1997.

"Queer Eye"

“All things keep getting better,” goes the “Queer Eye” theme song, a pulsing, techno-dance anthem that always manages to get the dopamine factories churning. This is a show about striving toward self-improvement and recognizing betterment not as a stopping point, but as a way forward.

Oprah and Gayle

Neither spends much time on the question of separating the art from the artist — that’s the sort of thorny dilemma that doesn’t make for a compact primetime special. But what Winfrey and King both do well is to give their viewers the tools to make those decisions for themselves.

Amazon Prime Studios

In an age where captivating, thrilling TV has somehow become dime a dozen, “The Widow” offers little of note to make it stand out in this crowded field.


This is a show whose only aim seems to present the strangeness or general ordinariness of rich Mexicans.
