Thanksgiving (or eating day) has come and gone. Now, it is time to get ready for the holidays and 2021, which we can’t wait for. 2020 has been quite the year for us all; no doubt about it. But until we hit that new year, we can’t forget about the upcoming week in TV, no?
And this upcoming week sees Epix’s Britannia‘s second season end this Sunday night (December 6th; 9 p.m. ET), while Showtime’s Shameless series begins its eleventh and final season on Sunday (9 p.m. ET).
That’s not all for Sunday. Fans of HBO’s Euphoria have a special episode to look forward to tonight, and that airs at 9 p.m ET. Meanwhile, Showtime has a new series called Your Honor, starring master pizza thrower Bryan Cranston as a New Orleans judge getting tested on how far his character is willing to go to protect a son from unexpected trouble. This brand-new series debuts at 10 p.m. ET on Showtime.
Nurses premieres on NBC this Monday night, December 7th, at 10 p.m. ET. This brand-new show is set in Toronto and will showcase five young nurses working at a busy downtown hospital, who are struggling to find time for themselves from their busy schedules.
Both FBI and FBI: Most Wanted will air their last new episodes for the fall this Tuesday night on CBS, beginning at 9 p.m. ET. An hour before that though, CBS’ NCIS series begins its fall break once a new episode airs at 8 p.m. ET.
Do you need some Christmas content? If so, then how about watching Dr. Seuss’ The Grinch Musical! on NBC at 8 p.m. ET, and/or The CW’s one-hour special titled: Greatest Holiday Commercials Countdown 2020 at 9 p.m. ET. Both specials air on Wednesday, December 9th.
As for some recent TV news, CBS announced that The Equalizer will debut after the upcoming 2021 Super Bowl. Warner Bros. set off a seismic shock wave throughout the entertainment industry with the announcement that it is releasing all of its 2021 film slate on HBO Max and in cinemas simultaneously (R.I.P. movie theaters?). NBC’s Superstore will close up shop at the conclusion of it sixth season. And just when we thought the Arrow-verse was winding down there is exciting news that Arrow’s David Ramsey is set to return to the Arrow-verse to reprise his character of John Diggle, direct, and play a ‘mystery character’.
Lastly, on Saturday December 5th fans of actor David Lander (Lavern & Shirley) received word that he sadly passed away last week at the age of 73. His character of ‘Squiggy’ brought many laughs to viewers of the series, thus we are sad that he passed away.
Phew! That is it for now. But, as always, our question to you is this: what will you be watching this week? Once you know, do let us know when visiting the FoCC forum. Also don’t forget that this week’s TV schedule is below.
