A few notable premieres are coming up this week, including the second season returns of two of my favourites from last year: Succession and Lodge 49. Also, The Terror returns, The Teen Choice Awards are back, and Jimmy Kimmel’s collaboration with the great TV creator Norman Lear is back for another airing next Saturday. Also, you can re-visit (or visit for the first time) the classic 1960s sitcom, Gidget. Happy viewing!
