August 2022 TV Premieres

The summer of TV isn’t over yet: We have over 50 premieres, returning shows, and movies to help you beat the heat in August.

Summer used to be a dead zone for new TV, nothing but reruns and reality show filler. But now, thanks to cultural advances in society and an abundance of streaming services (some say there’s too many; we say bring ’em on), we can give you over 50 viewing recommendations for the month of August alone—let’s get to it!
