You’re The Worst (10:30pm, FXX, season premiere)

Thursday, September 10
Longmire (Netflix, season premiere)
The contemporary western crime thriller, formerly on A&E before being canceled, has found itself back on the air by way of Uncle Netflix.

Remember the time when Will Ferrell played ten different positions for ten different teams (including the Oakland A’s) during various MLB training games? And he did it for charity? This is that story.

Doll & Em (10:30pm, HBO, season premiere)
The British Hollywood satire starring real life best friends Emily Mortimer and Dolly Wells returns. This season expect cameo appearances from Ewan McGregor, Olivia Wilde, Evan Rachel Wood and Mikhail Baryshnikov, because that’s the perks of doing a Hollywood satire: celebrities cameos.

See you next Monday!
