This week’s best new TV: The Get Down, Rio 2016 and a Night Manager marathon

Its peak Olympics on NBC, but away from sport theres Baz Luhrmanns hip-hop drama and you can pull an all-nighter with Tom Hiddleston


Rio 2016

There are no premieres on non-streaming TV this week because everyone is watching the Olympics and maybe you should be too or else youre going to look like a jerk when you have no idea who Simone Biles is. In fact, the Olympics dominate so much that most of your favorite summer series arent even showing new episodes. Luckily Netflix, Hulu and other streaming services dont give a hoot about what is going down in Rio. NBC Universal channel

Take My Wife

Thanks to Louie, standup comedians are obsessed with shows about being standup comedians and theres been such a glut of them that I wish I could tell them to stop making them. Im glad I didnt make that pronouncement before this great addition. This very autobiographical show charts the lives, careers and relationship of Rhea Butcher and Cameron Esposito, a married lesbian couple who cohost a comedy show in LA. Just like Maria Bamfords Lady Dynamite (she guest stars in an episode), Butcher and Esposito have found a way to make a comedy about comedians fresh and original by focusing on the struggles of female comedians and using their comedy to get at some thorny issues surrounding race, gender and sexual orientation. The jokes are pretty damn funny too. Seeso, Thursday 11 August
