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


The Syndicate: All or Nothing

AcornTV, streaming

The third iteration of BBC anthology series The Syndicate arrives in America Monday on online streaming service Acorn TV. Like Downton Abbey, it follows the goings-on at a rural British manor and the complicated dynamics between servants and masters. Unlike Downton Abbey, however, this series is set in the present day. The past few decades have not been easy on the British nobility, and Lord Hazelwood (Anthony Andrews) is running out of money… just as his servants strike the lottery. Good thing there aren’t any long-running class prejudices in British society that could make this sudden reversal weird, right? Right? 


The Late Late Show With James Corden

CBS, 12:37 a.m.

After a two-week Olympics break, all late night shows return Monday night with two episodes — but the most interesting of all will probably be The Late Late Show since Monday marks host James Corden’s birthday. One can only imagine what kind of gifts, pranks, and/or songs bandleader Reggie Watts has ready for the occasion (just remember what he did when he had the wrong date).


Cheer Squad

Freeform, 10 p.m.

It’s been a few years since the last Bring It On movie, and unfortunately there doesn’t seem to be a The Force Awakens-style franchise reboot coming down the pipe anytime soon. Cheer fans can console themselves with this new two-week reality show that follows the defending world champions of cheerleading, Canada’s Great White Sharks, as they navigate the ups and downs of the intense sport.
