Season Premiere
Big Sky is back with new mysteries for its second season, and a new showrunner, Elwood Reid (Barkskins, The Chi) taking over from creator David E. Kelley. Just weeks after their violent showdown with Ronald (Brian Geraghty), Cassie (Kylie Bunbury) and Jenny (Katheryn Winnick) are trying to pick up the pieces of their lives. Still recovering from being shot, Jenny decides to take Tubbs up on his offer and return to life on the force. But Cassie is single-minded in her determination to find Ronald. Meanwhile, a new case is afoot as a group of local teenagers accidentally witness a shady man crash his truck.

The Problem With Jon Stewart

HOW/WHEN & WHERE TO WATCH: Streaming on Apple TV+

Series Debut
"This is what I look like now," jokes Jon Stewart on the premiere of his new Apple TV+ news-comedy series. "I'm not happy about it either." Stewart may be a bit more grizzled, but there are plenty of things that will feel happily familiar about this Problem. Each biweekly episode begins with the comedian and activist delving into a particular topic — today's episode focuses on the toxic "burn pits" used by the military during the Iraq War — and offering pitch-perfect reactions to the news clips from his desk. (See: His GIF-worthy "WHAT THE F---?" or the barely-contained glee of, "Agreed… 'Auschwitz' is a terrible prom theme.") The second half of each episode goes deeper, as Stewart interviews people actively dealing with the Problem at hand — like soldiers coping with cancers and other illnesses caused by the burn pits, yet still being denied critical healthcare from the VA. Along the way, guest stars drop by for silly-sharp interstitial segments ("Jennifer Lewis: Oppression Mentor"), and Stewart himself ventures out of the studio for key interviews — armed with facts and an unwillingness to take vague soundbites for an answer. Watching him grill Secretary of Veterans Affairs Denis McDonough ("I don't think you could say we haven't established a link between exposure to jet fuel and certain cancers and autoimmune disorders. We have!") is riveting stuff. Welcome back, Jon Stewart — gray hair and all. —Kristen Baldwin

Unidentified With Demi Lovato

HOW/WHEN & WHERE TO WATCH: Streaming on Peacock

Series Debut
Sorry not sorry if this new series freaks you out. Demi Lovato — along with their sister, Dallas, and best friend, Matthew — is on a mission to learn whatever she can about the unexplained and investigate extraterrestrial events, sparked by her own experience. "We were stargazing and we tried to do this protocol where you make contact, and all of a sudden something showed up directly above us in the sky," Lovato says of a trip to the Southern California desert on their 28th birthday. "It was huge lights that made a question mark, almost, in the sky — and then it just backed out. I realized [then] that my life was probably going to change in a spiritual way, because I have a spiritual connection to this journey as well." We're confident you may see something cool and questionable on this journey too. —Gerrad Hall
