18 New TV Shows and Movies to Watch this Week: Outlander, The Bachelor, and More


After last week’s deluge of endless TV and movie offerings, I’m back with more what to watch suggestions. The good news: There’s more excellent TV coming your way. The bad: There doesn’t seem to be enough time to watch it all.

Let me start by recommending the fantastic comedy series Minx, which will air on HBO Max and stars Jake Johnson in his best role since New Girl. Set in the ‘70s, it’s about one woman’s attempt to start her own magazine that’s different from anything else on the market. You will be talking about this one for weeks to come. (Oh, and hello Taylor Zakhar Perez of The Kissing Booth fame! You’ll understand my special shout-out to him when you watch.)

Then there’s the two-night Bachelor finale. If you saw last week’s fantasy suite date episode, you know to expect the unexpected this week. Apparently spoilers are pointless this time around because Clayton still doesn’t know what’s going to happen and neither does host Jesse Palmer. We’ll find out on Tuesday on After the Final Rose.

For drama, I highly recommend Apple TV+’s WeCrashed, starring Anne Hathaway and Jared Leto (and ER alum, Anthony Edwards, who once again plays a high-profile business executive like he did in Inventing Anna). The limited series about the rise and fall of WeWork is riveting thanks to Hathaway and Leto.

And of course we have a new episode of Outlander (even better than last week’s premiere, if you ask me), an indie political satire worth checking out called The Hater, plus Amy Schumer’s new dramedy Life & Beth.

Here’s your must-watch guide to the week ahead!

The Presence of Love (Hallmark Movies & Mysteries): Sweeping views of the English countryside, need I say more? Oh, ok, you want a story description, too.
