Those of you lucky enough to have Spectrum cable get to see the second season of Manhunt that began on Discovery with the look at Ted Kaczynski.

This time around, they're looking at the Richard Jewell situation in a series that stars Connie Britton.

I love more scripted television as much as the next guy, but it's hard to get behind content that is available to so few, right?

8/7c 9-1-1: Lonestar (FOX)

There's a tornado in Texas and that type of disaster will push this new team to their limit. It will be the true test of whether they function well as a team, or if more changes need to be made.

Elsewhere, Jordan (Michael Evans Behling) and his teammates step up to help Billy out while he is tending to other matters.

It also happens to be the same event where Jessica reintroduces herself to the elite.

10/9c McMillions (HBO)

The latest documentary series coming to HBO has a little something for everyone, especially those of you McDonald's fans who played McMillions hoping to cash in with your poor eating habits.

If you like mysteries and get a kick out of mob antics, you're going to be quite interested in what went down with one of the most well-known games of our generation.

It's one of the most enjoyable shows I've seen this year, and I'll have full review for your enjoyment Monday morning to prove my case.

Trust me on this, you don't want to miss it!

Meanwhile, aboard The Artifact, Soji meets an important X-B with secret knowledge about her. Narissa arrives.

Interrogation (CBS All Access)

CBS All Access drops their latest series at once in with the request you do not watch in order but instead enjoy them however you want as if it's a real interrogation.

I suggest you watch (it's very good) but without taking their advice. You'll enjoy the series a lot more in order.

Kyle Gallner, Peter Sarsgaard, and David Strathairn lead the talented cast with roles from Joanna Going, Ebon Moss-Bachrach, Emma Caulfield Ford, and Vincent D'Onofrio

You can read our full review of the series later this afternoon right here on TV Fanatic.

9/8c Grey's Anatomy(ABC)

It's a family affair. We can expect another awkward dinner party, which has become a staple for the series.

It's Catherine and Richard's anniversary, but the couple is on the rocks, and the tension is thick.

Family tension is high with Levi's mother and Levi's uncle not getting along, and Levi being open about himself.

Check back in next week for an exclusive interview with Jake Borelli before the new episode.

9/8c The Sinner (USA)

Bill Pullman returns as Detective Ambrose for another run at The Sinner who appears to be played by hunky Matt Bomer this time around.

They're joined by another favorite of mine, Chris Messina, for a mystery that, by the end of the third episode, is just as twisty and unfathomable as the other seasons.

9:30 Indebted (NBC)

Adam Pally (Happy Endings) and Abby Elliott (who was so amazing in Odd Mom Out) star in this new series as a young couple raising kids. What makes it a little different is their irreverant attitude towards doing it and the sudden and somewhat unwelcome interference of their parents.

Played by Fran Drescher and Steven Weber play their parents who have fallen onto some tough times financially.

Coming from Dan Levy (The Goldbergs and Mulaney), this show about young parents raising their kids and their parents is unexpectedly hilarious and not at all PC, so if you're into that kind of thing, be preapred.

I don't watch many comedies, but this one will be a part of my routine. And FYI, I've seen the first handful of episodes. I speak with confidence!

10/9c A Million Little Things (ABC)
