All times eastern; PBS time slots may vary on your station.

Better Call Saul is back, and he’s bringing a new AMC series with him. Lodge 49 stars the son of Kurt Russell and Goldie Hawn as a former surfer who joins a mysterious fraternal lodge. The third season of Chesapeake Shores kicks off this week, too. And I will pay a gazillion dollars to anyone who catches me watching new seasons of the Kardashians, Bachelor in Paradise or anything else remotely related to reality. Happy viewing!
