From Italian Nonnas to social media influencers to pitmasters, the series has all the angles—and all the types—covered and things are primed to heat up. It’s about time we got a whole cooking competition dedicated to the dish that’s spawned a thousand variations and Best in Dough does it with style.

On NBC

Quantum Leap is making a comeback to warp your brain cells with time-space-travel-science once again. It’s been almost 30 years since Dr. Sam Beckett vanished in the Quantum Leap accelerator. Now, physicist Ben Song (Raymond Lee) is here to repeat history. When Ben leaps, he has no memory of what happened or why he leaped, only that he’s in the body of a getaway driver in the middle of a bank robbery in the 1980s (AKA instant panic mode). From there, the show treads familiar territory as the team in the present tries to figure out the whys & wheres & whos of the story. And the added mystery of what happened to Sam is always on the periphery, threatening to overwhelm the team with the dangers of their mission. By not wasting any time on setup—relying on existing pop culture knowledge—Quantum Leap launches you right into the action and makes for a thrilling series premiere that’ll have you on the edge of your seat from the get-go. 

Quantum Leap debuts on NBC tonight.

From NBC:
It’s been nearly 30 years since Dr. Sam Beckett stepped into the Quantum Leap accelerator and vanished. Now, a new team, led by physicist Ben Song (Raymond Lee), has been assembled to restart the project in hope of understanding the mysteries behind the machine and the man who created it.

Reboot

Season 1
Tues Sept 20
On Hulu

Photo by: Hulu

We live in the golden age of reboots—why bother creating something new when you can make some quick cash…right? Hulu’s new series explores that with a wink in its new comedy Reboot. Hannah (Rachel Bloom) is a writer who wants to reboot the classic sitcom Step Right Up. Unfortunately, the cast members are all a far cry from the beloved characters they played onscreen—Hollywood has chewed them up and spit them out and they’ve found different ways of dealing with it. Whether they’re looking for a comeback or are riding high on success, forcing these big egos to come together after such a long time reignites some old flames (and some old feuds). Their shared history feels so real and the chemistry is fantastic. The sitcom family is played by Keegan-Michael Key, Judy Greer, Johnny Knoxville, and Calum Worthy and they sell their messy dynamic so well—naturally creating a ton of ridiculous situations and setting up some giggle-worthy jokes. If you’re sick of reboots, get ready to poke fun at them all while cheering for a bunch of Hollywood misfits and their hot mess of a comeback story.

Watch Reboot on Hulu tomorrow.

From Hulu:
Hulu reboots an early 2000’s family sitcom, forcing its dysfunctional cast back together. Now they must deal with their unresolved issues in today’s fast-changing world.

Patton Oswalt steps back onto the stage for his new Netflix special and he’ll immediately bring a smile to your face. He gives you a rundown of his time during the lockdown, starting with some stories about getting older, home workouts, and getting vaccinated (that’s right, y’all, Patton knows what’s up). He says what we’re all thinking with extra sauce, before turning the spotlight on the audience to transform simple questions into hilarious commentary. His observations are spot on—even when you don’t know where he’s going with his stories at first—but you’ll soon be chuckling at the truth, especially when he asks, “What the hell is going on?” We don’t know but Patton might just have all the answers you need.

Patton Oswalt: We All Scream hits Netflix tomorrow.

From Netflix:
Filmed at Paramount Theatre in Denver Colorado, Patton makes his directorial debut with his fourth Netflix comedy special, We All Scream.

New Amsterdam

Season 5 premiere
Tues Sept 20 – 10PM
On NBC

Photo by: Eric Liebowitz/NBC

As we rejoin Max (Ryan Eggold) for another season we find him heartbroken but trying to keep himself together, especially when so many people depend on him. Iggy (Tyler Labine) and Martin (Mike Doyle) are doing their best to adjust to their new parenting dynamic, impacted by the stressful nature of their jobs. When the ER receives an influx of patients from a protest march, Elizabeth (Sandra Mae Frank) makes a promise to a dying patient she doesn’t know how to keep, and the hospital receives a big donation with poisonous strings attached, it’s up to the team’s talent and tenacity to keep things moving. And they use these wonderfully human stories to make a stand about how abortion, sex work, and queer rights are worth fighting for every single day. Is it a lil cheesy in its execution? Sure, but the message is loud and clear. It’ll make your heart ache, reminding you why New Amsterdam is such a great series—and it’ll make you wish the medical field was this open and driven in caring for its patients.

New Amsterdam returns to NBC tomorrow.

After a tumultuous year in which the leadership of New Amsterdam underwent dramatic change, the idealistic and beloved Max Goodwin is back at the helm.

Eilyn and Ray Jimenez are a husband and wife duo who share a passion for design. That’s why they run two design companies with different styles, approaches, and clients, competing but also cheering each other on. With high tastes and high-flying lifestyles, they clash in all the best ways—which makes for an interesting dynamic. Eilyn has a minimalist aesthetic with a natural eye for detail, while Ray is a champion of maximalism. That means you get treated to distinct layouts that will give you a ton of #inspo for your Pinterest boards. And their big personalities and attitudes are full of friction and sparks that give Designing Miami a lot of energy to keep you entertained in between the big reveals.

Watch Designing Miami on Netflix on Wednesday.

From Netflix:
Miami’s two hottest designers aren’t just competitors, they’re also husband and wife. Eilyn and Ray Jimenez are making South Florida chicer one house at a time – she with a minimalist aesthetic and he with a more maximalist approach. Juggling the needs of their deep pocketed clients, their staffs of young designers, their close-knit families (some of whom are also contractors) and their relationship with each other isn’t easy, but this talented, stylish duo manages to pull it off while always maintaining a healthy sense of humor.

The S2 premiere sees the faculty bringing their summer adventures into the classroom, including ASL courses and beach getaways, with varying degrees of usefulness.

Owen (Leslie Odom Jr.) gets to hang out with his fellow park manager buddies…but it turns out his memories of their good times are a little rose-tinted. Good luck getting the song “Four Park Harmony” chorus out of your head (it’s a gem). While Owen and Paige (Kathryn Hahn) are busy at the manager meetup, aunt Abby (Kristen Bell) takes Cole (Tituss Burgess) and Molly (Emmy Raver-Lampman) on an adventure to find her a job, with…mixed results. Meanwhile Bitsy (Stanley Tucci) lays out some new orders to get the floors cleaned, forcing Helen (Daveed Diggs) to realize that Bitsy’s penchant for firing everyone is finally coming back to bite them both in the ass. “Golden Owen: Manager Damager” highlights the flaws of some of our Central Park crew in fun, colorful ways, gently making them self-reflect and improve.
