The Most Important Shows on TV: Week of September 28, 2015

Which TV series will your friends (and the entire internet) be talking about this week? Stay informed—or at least be able to fake it—with SideReel's weekly guide to The Most Important Shows on TV.   Blindspot Monday at 10:00pm on NBC Why: A metric butt-ton of people tuned in to watch the premiere of this show last week! Maybe they just all wanted to see Jaimie Alexander (kind of) naked or maybe they were intrigued by her tattoos. Who knows! Either way, it's a cool premise (though it's been done better ), even if the dialogue leaves something to be desired ("One thing's for sure, someone likes playing games… and this is just the beginning"), people are talking about it. Maybe you should be one of them! Prepare to talk about: How it's a good thing Jane is working for the FBI because I'm not sure she could get too many other jobs with that many tattoos; what's going on with the FBI Director's case file (oooOOOOooooo); how Jane's eyeliner is like, always perfect even when she's been zipped into a suitecase.   The Daily Show (Season Premiere) Monday at 11:00pm on Comedy Central Why: There was a time, oh young ones, when The Daily Show was hosted by a man named Craig Kilborn. When he left, people swore up and down that this Jon Stewart fellow could never replace him. Then again, here I am reminding you that Craig Kilborn ever existed. While it's doubtful that Mr. Stewart will suffer the same fate, is it possible that Trevor Noah can make TDS his own show? Or keep it the must-see political commentary it's become? Well, his first guest is Kevin Hart, so... you know, what? Let's give it at least a week to find out. Prepare to talk about: How much faith you have in Trevor Noah on a scale of one to Jon Stewart; whether it's the same to have a non-American criticizing the American political process; how you wouldn't mind moving to Jon Stewart's new farm in New Jersey.   The Good Wife (Season Premiere) Sunday at 9:00pm on CBS Why: Peter's running for President (LOLOLOLOLOL), Alicia's trying to fix her law practice (though one might say that of every freakin' episode), and KALINDA IS GONE. Is this show even worth watching without Kalinda? We love you, Kalindaaaaaaaaa. Also, Margo Martindale is joining the cast! She's great. Prepare to talk about: How Peter will never, never, never win the presidency (in the words of Taylor Swift, like, ever); how maybe Alicia should just take it easy for a while and take up crocheting or binge-watch Judging Amy or something; whether you can deal with a Kalinda-less Good Wife .     Leah E. Friedman  is the editor of You can follow her musings on  Twitter . p { text-align: justify; }
