Here’s what’s up in the world of TV for Thursday, August 11. All times are Eastern.
BoJack Horseman (Netflix, 4 p.m.): Les Chappell is just two episodes away from finishing up his journey through BoJack Horseman’s third season. In “That’s Too Much, Man!” BoJack decides to make amends to the people he hurt but keeps getting distracted by his drug-fueled bender with Sarah Lynn. This episode is something of a game-changer for BoJack and, as always, Les is on hand to keep track of the curse words and highlight the background jokes.
2016 Summer Olympics (NBC, 8 p.m.): Gymnastics is one of the most high-profile events of the Summer Olympics, and tonight’s coverage puts America’s biggest gymnastics superstar front and center. Simone Biles competes in the women’s all-around final and is expected to blow the competition out of the water. Elsewhere, Michael Phelps dives into the water to compete in the 200-meter individual medley, which will air live.
Queen Of The South (USA, 10 p.m.): USA’s female antihero drama keeps on truckin’ with the third-to-last episode of the season. In “Billete De Magia,” Camila tries to pull off a tricky heist while an undercover Teresa must make “a life-changing decision.”
Triumph’s Summer Election Special 2016 (Hulu, 3 a.m.): Considering both of this year’s presidential candidates are ’90s throwbacks, it only makes sense that a staple of late ’90s comedy would weigh in on them. Triumph, the Insult Comic Dog, follows up his February election special with a summer edition, which has footage filmed at both the Republican and Democratic National Conventions. Having previously reviewed Triumph’s winter special, we asked Dennis Perkins to slather on some sunscreen and throw on some shades to tackle the summer edition too.
Take My Wife (Seeso): In this new comedy series, Cameron Esposito and her real-life wife/fellow comedian Rhea Butcher play a pair of married stand-ups trying to make it in L.A. Esposito and Butcher co-wrote the series, which we’re guessing will have somewhere between zero to 20 references to that famous catchphrase. All six episodes drop today, and while the full series is available only to Seeso subscribers, the first episode is already online for free.
Steven Universe (Cartoon Network, 7 p.m.): For all intents and purposes, Cartoon Network is just continuing to barrel through its nonstop “Summer Of Steven” marathon. Technically, however, the show kicks off its fourth season tonight with “Kindergarten Kid.” Steven and the Gems deal with a monster problem, while Eric Thurm looks forward to the fact that there’s only one more episode left before Steven Universe returns to a weekly schedule.
Real Housewives Of Orange County (Bravo, 10 p.m.): It’s time for the “Bravoholic” edition of Real Housewives Of Orange County. To be honest, we’re not 100 percent sure what that means, but we’re gonna guess it’s not a huge win for positive female representation.
Life, After (Vimeo): Despite being struck by a car and turned into ghosts, best friends Corinne and Erica still deal with a lot of the same problems: Making friends, getting dates, and fitting in with other ghosts. Oh and they can fly now too, which is cool. Created by and starring Corinne Caputo and Erica Tachoir, this charming webseries is Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt meets Ghost with a touch of Shaun Of The Dead’s deadpan thrown in. While these kinds of comedy web series can be hit-or-miss, Life, After is a lovely little gem. You can find all eight episodes on the show’s website, and the premiere is below:
