Rooting for One Day recognition@TVGMMattRoushWith Emmy favorite Veep out of the race this year, do you think there’s hope that Netflix’s One Day at a Time will finally get some recognition? If not in the comedy series category, then at least for the stellar performances of Justina Machado and Rita Moreno. I loved Season 1, but Season 2—particularly the season finale—knocked my socks off! —JackMATT ROUSH: I’d love for One Day and its stars to break through. I’d even put odds on the wonderful Moreno adding a supporting actress Emmy to her EGOT shelf. Anything’s possible, but it’s still a crowded field, and the Veep void could be filled by another HBO comedy (Barry? Insecure?) or Netflix’s own GLOW.I wanted to compliment the writers of FX’s The Americans for the…

FOOD FOR THOUGHTThanks so much for spotlighting my favorite food series, The Great British Baking Show [June 11, page 57, “What’s Worth Watching”]. Always so charming, always so delicious…and that’s just judge Paul Hollywood. The amazing culinary creations also make me drool! —SharonSTREAM ON Thanks for all of the streaming info. Please add more. I am a longtime subscriber and mostly watch streaming. I love to binge-watch TV and find my cable provider restricts how many shows are available, so I don’t use it anymore. Keep up the great work. —BeckyFALL FAIL I, for one, will not be watching the new Magnum P.I. When I first heard about it, I was hoping it would involve the now-grown daughter. I am looking forward to the reboot of Murphy Brown, though. Hopefully,…

SUMMER THROWBACK EDITIONSIX FEET UNDERStream on HBO Go and Amazon Prime VideoWho could predict that a drama about death and grief, set inside a family-owned funeral home, would become one of the most-talked-about shows of the usually lighthearted summer season? But the achingly funny, blackly comic travails of the flawed Fisher clan captured our hearts and imaginations, starting in June 2001. The Alan Ball–created HBO series helped spur the second Golden Age of Television and delivered one of the most iconic series finales ever, with viewers getting to see the characters’ fates as their lives played out in an epic, heart-wrenching montage. —Christopher Wallenberg, ResearcherMONKStream on Amazon Prime VideoThe mysteries were wonderfully odd, but what endeared me to Monk when it premiered on USA in July 2002 was the relatability…

taking flight

EVEL LIVE, AIRING in real time from Las Vegas on July 8, promises more sky-high thrills than the most spectacular fireworks display. So save some “oohs” and “ahhs” for X Games champion Travis Pastrana, who will attempt a trio of famous jumps originated by motorcycle daredevil Evel Knievel in the 1960s and ’70s. In the three-hour special, motorsports superstar Pastrana, decked out in Knievel regalia astride an Indian Scout FTR750, will first try to leap the length of 52 crushed cars, then 16 Greyhound buses and, finally, Vegas’s famed Caesars Palace fountain.That last stunt at the casino-hotel’s 141-foot water feature nearly killed Knievel in 1967 when it ended in a crash that caused multiple broken bones and a concussion. It was Knievel’s attitude toward handling that and other setbacks that…

(TOP: SLAVEN VLASIC/GETTYIMAGES BOTTOM: HISTORY CHANNEL)1956–2018ANTHONY BOURDAIN WAS more than a media personality; he was a moveable feast. When it was announced June 8 that the 61-year-old had committed suicide (he was found in a hotel room in France, where he was filming an episode of his CNN travelogue Parts Unknown), it felt as though we’d lost our coolest, smartest, funniest friend.Bourdain’s work—starting in 2000 with his memoir Kitchen Confidential, which details his wild antics as a young chef in New York City, and then on multiple series that documented him eating and drinking across various cultures—was a way into his mind, providing access to his unique voice and voracious appetite.In 2011, Bourdain sat down to dinner with TV GUIDE MAGAZINE. In person, he was gentler and more restrained than…
