‘The Sinner’ Delivers For USA

‘The Sinner’ (USA)

Jessica Biel’s dramatic return to television on USA’s new limited series The Sinner has taken summer TV by storm. Pulling in 3.5 million viewers in L+3 ratings, making it the summer’s biggest cable drama debut.  And the series debut also makes an impressive debut in the XFINITY Weekly Top 20 Episodes On Demand list, jumping in at #3, just behind stalwarts Game of Thrones and Power. It’s a haunting tale of not who committed a horrible act, but why? Catch up on the series right here.

Catch Up: Bravo’s Below Deck is setting sail for a new season on September 5th. If you’ve ever wondered how the other half lives, check out this reality show that follows the employees that work on a luxury yacht as they cater to charter guest’s needs. Captain Lee doesn’t take any gruff, and chief stewardess Kate is fun to watch as she barks out commands to her staff while also doing whatever it takes for the crew to get their tip. Catch up on the previous season right here.

Hot Series: Are you hooked on Animal Kingdom yet? Well, if you aren’t, you should be. This TNT drama that follows the Cody family in Southern California and is hotter than ever, and in fact is one of the few series to grow their audience from Season 1 to Season 2. Catch up right here before the season finale airs later this month.
