Here’s what’s happening in the world of television for Friday, January 26 and Saturday January 27. All times are Eastern. 

Top pick

One Day At A Time (Netflix, Friday, 3:01 a.m.): This is it: The premiere of the second season of One Day At A Time, which picks up after Penelope’s (Justina Machado) divorce, Elena’s (Isabella Gomez) coming out, Alex’s (Marcel Ruiz) party-planning coup, and Lydia’s (Rita Moreno) sartorial success. The first season of this reboot made the case for revisiting the multi-cam format, and the earnestness continues in these new 13 episodes, which touch on queer identity, immigration, and gun control. But don’t worry about this great cast—they also get to take on more lighthearted fare, like gentrification (look, we had to mention Schneider at some point). We’ll be dropping in on the complete second season over the weekend.
