What to Watch Monday: People of Earth series premiere

Posted on

TBS

Your daily guide to the most interesting stuff happening on TV and streaming. All times Eastern.

PICK OF THE NIGHT

People of Earth

TBS, 9 p.m.

The aliens aren’t just coming — they’re here. Executive produced by Conan O’Brien, People of Earth follows Ozzie Graham (The Daily Show‘s Wyatt Cenac) as he probes an alien-abductee support group for the truth. And, he’s surprised to find out that they might not be crazy. The endearingly bizzare comedy also stars SNL alum Ana Gasteyer as the support group’s leader and Oscar Nuñez (The Officer) as the priest who runs the church where the group meets. The invasion has begun, and it’s hilarious.

SERIES DEBUT

Chewing Gum

Netflix, Streaming

Meet your latest imported obsession: The quirky, BAFTA-winning British sitcom stars Michaela Coel (Black Mirror) as Tracey Gordon, a young virgin who loves Jesus and Beyoncé with equal vigor. That is, until she decides to embrace all the world has to offer — including sex. It’s basically a coming-of-age tale, but about a 24-year-old.

TIMEY-WIMEY FUN

Timeless

NBC, 10:01 p.m.

Next stop on this time travel adventure? The Battle of the Alamo. There, the not-the-Legends of Tomorrow team will learn “the meaning of trust and sacrifice from people prepared to die for those around them,” according to the episode’s logline. You know, some people learn lessons without having to time travel. Just saying.
