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.


Sunday – Last Week Tonight with John Oliver #Investifarted
Monday – UnREAL
Tuesday – Not Safe with Nikki Glaser
Wednesday – I have no trouble imagining a world gone insane with Mr. Robot
Thursday – Olympics: the Simones have it
Friday – Olympics: all 800m of Katie Ledecky
Saturday – Olympics, particularly Monica Puig for Puerto Rico
