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.

Monday – Full Frontal with Samantha Bee
Tuesday – Not Safe with Nikki Glaser (or REALLY Not Safe with Eric André, as it were)
Wednesday – Mr. Robot
Thursday – The season finale of Hollywood Game Night airing months after the rest of the season
Friday – Check It Out! with Dr. Steve Brule (Is this really the end of Dr. Steve’s cherry-red humdinger of a run?)
Saturday – I didn’t really watch anything that actually aired on Saturday, but I did finish Season 3 of BoJack Horseman.
