Today is mostly about the upcoming week in television. But we're also going to talk about things that are little farther out because they're just. so. cool. And I can't help myself.
Let's start with the brand-new. truTV's new reality series about three families in Idaho's backcountry, Way Out West, premieres Monday. The Youren, Bullock and Korell families all run rival outfitting businesses and compete to lead the best excursions, survive their various family shenanigans and participate in local festivals and time-honored traditions. It's exactly as outrageous as you'd expect, see for yourself:
Sticking with the theme of outrageous comedy, the season finale of Adult Swim's Superjail airs Sunday. Stay up late (11:45 p.m.) or, if you're like me and have the bedtime of a nerdy middle-schooler, DVR it for viewing during daylight hours.
On Monday, HBO Documentaries premieres The Newburgh Sting, which goes inside the FBI's involvement in the homegrown terror case that ultimately resulted in 25-year prison sentences for the "Newburgh Four." Watch the trailer below.
CNN's original series The Sixties continues with its "1968" episode on Thursday. If you haven't heard (or seen the series yourself), it's getting great reviews and was recently nominated for two Primetime Emmys. Needless to say, highly recommend it.
Now that that's out of the way, I'm breaking my own rules and jumping ahead to the season of foliage and apple picking. Because there are a couple things happening this fall that are really, really cool.
First up, Beyoncé and Jay-Z's On the Run Tour is coming to HBO in September. It really doesn't get better than this.
And then things get creepy. Before The Conjuring, there was Annabelle. The new Warner Bros. film hits theaters in October, but you'll want to watch the trailer right now.
