‘American Gods’ Has a Heavenly Debut

‘American Gods’ (Starz)

American Gods has shot out of the gate strong for Starz. The new epic drama from creator Bryan Fuller centers on the conflict between old and new gods as they fight for relevancy and control in modern day America. The show had a strong ratings premiere, just shy of the best debut ever for a new Starz series. And it enters the XFINITY Weekly Top 20 On Demand list all the way at #2, just trailing Empire for the top spot. Catch up on past episodes right here.

Don’t Miss: The Big Bang Theory wraps up its 10th season this Thursday night on CBS, and the show is hotter than ever. It’s still the most popular comedy on TV, and was recently renewed for two more seasons. In the finale, the gang is concerned when Sheldon’s former admirer Dr. Ramona Nowitzki returns while Amy is away at Princeton. You can get more Big Bang fun in the fall when Young Sheldon premieres, a new comedy about Sheldon as a child. Watch past episodes of The Big Bang Theory right here.

Catch Up: 60 Days In wraps up its second season this Thursday night on A&E. This season saw the action move to a jail in Atlanta, and the drama was ramped up even more. The compelling stories, the unforgettable inmates, it’s all there, real as can be. Watch all past episodes right here.

Hot Series: Southern Charm has turned into a bonafide hit for Bravo, and it in fact has now created a spinoff, Southern Charm Savannah, which just premiered. The new series follows the same formula, following six life-long friends as they deal with their personal lives, love and work. All with that Southern sensibility! Watch the premiere episode right here.

This Week’s Premieres: Master of None (Netflix – Friday), What Happens at the Abbey (E! – Sunday), My Super Sweet 16 (MTV – Sunday), Invite Only Cabo (Bravo – Sunday)
