Planet Earth II
BBC America/AMC/Sundance, Saturday, 9 ET/PT
A decade after its landmark nature series Planet Earth, the BBC returns with this six-part sequel, which will be simulcast on AMC, Sundance and BBC America. As a bonus, this time around Americans will get to hear the original narration by David Attenborough, who did both shows in Britain but was replaced in the American version of Earth by Sigourney Weaver.
The Good Fight
CBS, Sunday, 8 ET/PT
Fans of The Good Wife have two important decisions to make Sunday: Do you want to see an Alicia-less sequel built around Christine Baranski’s Diane Lockhart? And, after the first hour, are you willing to pay to see it? The pilot airs Sunday on CBS and the network’s CBS All Access, but all subsequent episodes will be streamed exclusively, starting with the second, also available Sunday.
HBO, Sunday, 10:30 ET/PT
Append “Bore” to the title and you have an unfortunately apt description of this meandering comedy, loosely based on stand-up comic Pete Holmes’ early career. Holmes comes across as a very sweet man but not a particularly funny one in a show that, sadly, is neither.
