Welcome to This Week in TV, a weekly feature in which we spotlight the series debuting or returning to air. Set your DVRs and alarms: below are the highlights for the next seven days. 

Monday, March 21


Dancing With the Stars (ABC, 8 p.m.)

Judging by this picture, Mischa Barton’s serious about winning that mirror ball trophy. Or maybe she’s just reconsidering the outfit.


Everything Is Copy (HBO, 9 p.m.)

The doc celebrates Nora Ephron’s witty works through interviews with bold-faced names like Meryl Streep, Tom Hanks, and Meg Ryan.

Tuesday, March 22


Heartbeat (NBC, 9 p.m.)

Formerly known as Heartbreaker, this medical drama stars Melissa George as a cardiothoracic surgeon who does everything she can to save her patients while juggling a love triangle. Can cardiothoracic surgeons have it all?!?!?!

You, Me, Her (DirecTV, 9 p.m.)

Not to be confused with You, Me, and the Apocalypse or You, Me, and Dupree, this series about a married man (Greg Poehler) who falls for an escort is, among other things, inspired by a Playboy article! Consider this a win for magazine journalism.

Friday Night Tykes: Steel Country (Esquire, 10 p.m.)

Youth football. In Pittsburgh. I hope they wear helmets.


Stitchers (Freeform, 10 p.m.)

Kirsten Clark (Emma Ishta) returns to have her mind “stitched” into the recently deceased to solve murders. I mean, what’s Freeform going to do, bring back Pushing Daisies?!

Wednesday, March 23


The Carbonaro Effect (TruTV, 10 p.m.)

Shaq is a special guest star in one of the comedic magic show’s episodes this season! (OR IS HE?)

Thursday, March 24


The Catch (ABC, 10 p.m.)

Shondaland delivers another fun, twisty drama with this cat-and-mouse tale starring Mireille Enos as the cat and Peter Krause as the mouse. (As in, Enos is a P.I., and Krause is her ex-fiancé who conned her out of all of her savings.)

Friday, March 25


Spring Broke (Showtime, 9 p.m.)

A documentary about the culture of spring break in the U.S. So, like, Spring Breakers, but without the violence and James Franco covers of Britney Spears songs.

Saturday, March 26


Black Sails (Starz, 9 p.m.)

Saturday doesn’t have any season premieres, so the next best thing is a season finale! Still, given the latest shocker in the pirate drama, the final hour really is one to watch live.

Sunday, March 27


Grantchester (PBS, 9 p.m.)

Set in early 1950s England at the titular, seemingly idyllic village near Cambridge, this detective drama based on James Runcie’s short stories is perfect for Anglophiles — and for fans of very specific period settings. 

Mr. Selfridge (PBS, 10 p.m.)

The final season about the eponymous eccentric businessman played by Jeremy Piven sees him womanizing and working to save his empire. (Maybe they should call him Mr. Self-ish, am I right? Never mind.)
