We’re In The Middle Of 2017’s Best Week Of Television

We warned you it would happen. Now it’s here.

There was 455 original scripted shows on television (that includes “broadcast, cable, and streaming sources,” according to FX’s figures) in 2016, and 2017 is on pace for even more. That’s a lot of TV to keep up with. You might even say… too much TV. But like everything in life, you take the good (Mom and Zoo) with the bad (everything else on CBS), and this week, the good heavily outweighs the bad. In fact, this is the best seven-day stretch of TV all year.
