Scott’s Vacation House Rules (HGTV). Real estate expert and contractor Scott McGillivray (above) talks about what to expect on Season 3 in a recent brioux.tv podcast conversation you can find here.
CMT Music Awards (CBS). They don’t even air on CMT anymore! Shouldn’t they be called the CBS Music Awards? Kelsea Ballerini and Anthony Mackie host.
Hard Cell (Netflix). This must be where the female criminals arrested on Pretty Hard Cases wind up — the Britich ones, anyway. A six-episode mocumentary about a prison for women starring series creator Catherine Tate (not to be confused with the CBC exec).
Our Great National Parks (Netflix). Former US president Barack Obama brings Hope to squirrels, etc., in this five-part look at America’s national parks.
The Kardashians (Hulu). The family that nips and tucks together, stays together, now on a new network. Episodes can be ignored every Thursday.
Killing It (Peacock). Craig Robinson stars in this 10-episode comedy about a prison guard who wants to buy some land. Love’s Claudia O’Doherty plays an Uber driver who convinces him to enter a python-hunting contest to raise cash. Hilarity ensues. From the folks behind Brooklyn Nine-Nine.
Paul Rabliauskas: Uncle (Crave). First Nations stand-up comedian Paul Rabliauskas performs in this Just for Laughs stage show shot in Montreal. First in a series of seven Crave original stand-up specials.
Tripping The Bruce (TVO). The third in executive producer Mitch Azaria’s annual real-time documentaries explores the wonders of the Bruce Peninsula — a destination I suggested! The three hour tour, in a sailboat, takes viewers on a 34 kilometer trip across the tip of the Bruce, winding up at Flowerpot Island. Highlights include underwater explorations of several shipwrecks. Listen as Mitch sets it all up starting Monday on the next episode of brioux.tv the podcast.
Anatomy of a Scandal (Netflix). This new, sex-episode anthology series from veteran writer-producer David E. Kelley is yet another courtroom drama. Sienna Miller, Rupert Friend, Michelle Dockery, and Naomi Scott star in a sexual consent scandal mixed in with the trial of a politician.
Come Dance with Me (CBS). Hosted by Philip Lawrence, this new dance competition features dancers aged between 9 and 15 paired with a family member with no dance training. Jenna Dewan, Dexter Mayfield and choreographer Tricia Miranda judge which pair wins the $100,000 grand prize.
It’s the Small Things, Charlie Brown (AppleTV+). This new, animated Peanuts special is themed around Earth Day. Seems Charlie Brown’s little sister Sally has taken a shine to a dandelion growing on the kid’s pitching mound, holding up the game. Good grief!
Bill Maher: #Adulting HBO; Crave). The Real Time host shows off his glasses in a new stand-up special. And, yes, he pokes fun at Trump. “Did you notice he was the only president who didn’t age in office? WE did!”
