A wide variety of choices this week, from a new(ish) comedy on Thursday night from CBC, to the return of ABC’s summer Fun & Games block on Sunday, to a rare glimpse behind the curtain of the best of the best in military operatives, America’s Navy SEALS on History. Plus, Fox begins the summertime burn-off of its ill-fated comedy, Ghosted, a look at the final phase of David Cassidy’s life, and PBS ends the week with a look at how some of the world’s most influential people have made their mark in the world on Breaking Big. Happy viewing!
