Now it comes to television as a more conventional series where Soderbergh calls the shots. Sharon Stone heads a cast that also includes Garrett Hedlund, Frederick Weller, Beau Bridges, Paul Reubens, Jennifer Ferrin, Devin Ratray, Michael Cerveris, and James Ransone. The series airs across five consecutive nights this week (with Friday's finale spanning two episodes).

    Hey, just a heads up but some of your listings are out of order near the end (Startup, MIndhunter and Stranger Things). Doesn't matter that much, just thought you would like to know.

    Did Drop the Mic get cancelled or bump its premiere date? I can find it on my guide and it's not on the TBS website as up and coming, but it's listed above as premiering tonight.

    I can't thank you enough for maintaining this site. If you would ever consider adding a field for "Date Added" I would be so grateful as it would make it easier to pick out the shows which have been added since the last visit.
