In this feature, I look back at each day of the past week and determine what shows “won TV” for the night. That is, I consider every episode of television I watched that aired on a particular day and declare which was the best.


Sunday – Last Week Tonight with John Oliver
Monday – Olympics, featuring King of the 800 David Rudisha
Tuesday – Difficult People
Wednesday – Mr. Robot
Thursday – The Nightly Show with Larry Wilmore, because we should not confuse cancellation with failure
Friday – The Eric Andre Show
Saturday – Olympics: the 4×400‘s were fun
