What else needs to be on your radar this week? Take a look below, and I’ll see you back here next week for some major TV premieres coming your way.
Sunday, May 8
Mom Genes (Netflix): Comedian, podcaster, and mom of two Christina P. releases her second Netflix special on Mother’s Day. Her first one-hour special, Christina P: Mother Inferior, premiered almost five years ago on Netflix, and she’s back with more hilarious commentary on motherhood. Streaming
Monday, May 9
Candy (Hulu): The limited series starring Jessica Biel, Timothy Simons, Melanie Lynskey, Pablo Schreiber, and Raúl Esparza airs a new episode every night this week, culminating with the finale on Friday. The synopsis, per Hulu: Candy Montgomery is a 1980 housewife and mother who did everything right—good husband, two kids, nice house, even the careful planning and execution of transgressions—but when the pressure of conformity builds within her, her actions scream for just a bit of freedom. With deadly results. Take a look. Streaming
Tuesday, May 10
This Is Us (NBC): After tonight, only two new episodes remain. This one though, titled “Family Meeting,” focuses on Kevin, Kate, and Randall’s plan for Rebecca in her final few years. The episode is written by TIU executive producers, Isaac Aptaker and Elizabeth Berger, and all I can say is that you’d better stock up on the tissues because you’re going to need them. And if you don’t, send them my way, because I’m still crying. 9 p.m. E.T./P.T., 8 p.m. C.T., and streaming the next day on Hulu
