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!

Sunday, March 13

Critics Choice Awards (The CW and TBS): Originally scheduled for January 9 but delayed due to the spread of Omicron, the Critics Choice Awards is finally here. (Full disclosure: I’m a member of the Critics Choice Association.) Co-hosted by Taye Diggs and Nicole Byer, the ceremony that honors the best in TV and film will be live from Los Angeles and London. Nominees include This Is Us, Yellowjackets, Succession, Squid Game, and more. Presenters include Jamie Dornan, Serena Williams, Venus Williams, Mandy Moore, Lee Jung-jae, Mayim Bialik, Nasim Pedrad, and others. I’ll be on the red carpet so follow along here; Chiara Aurelia, a nominee for her role in Freeform’s Cruel Summer, will be doing a special InstaStories takeover for Glamour as she gets ready for the awards. 7 P.M. ET/4 P.M. PT live

Outlander (Starz): In the second episode of the sixth season, Ian and Jamie are at odds over Jamie’s reluctance to pass along the Cherokee’s request for guns. Meanwhile, Roger experiences something he never thought he would see while at church. But the best storyline in this great second episode involves Fergus and Marsali, who gives birth to their fourth child. Oh, and the return of some furry friends. 9 P.M. ET/6 P.M. PT

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. Well, adjunct professor Joss (Eloise Mumford) travels to England to visit the farm where her late mother grew up and bonds with single father Daniel (Julian Morris), whose family now runs it. Love blooms, but also, have I mentioned the sweeping English countryside?! 9 P.M. ET/PT, 8 P.M. CT

Monday, March 14

The Bachelor (ABC): After last Tuesday’s fantasy suite episode, all bets are off in tonight’s two-hour finale (followed by tomorrow’s After the Final Rose). Are we really supposed to believe Susie is gone for good? Does Clayton propose to anyone? And why doesn’t Jesse Palmer know what happens? SO. MANY. QUESTIONS. 8 P.M. ET/PT, 7 P.M. CT and streaming the next day on Hulu
