This is what is happening in the world of TV for Friday 1. November and Saturday, November 2nd. All times are Eastern.
Welcome to November, a month of seemingly endless TV. Today marks the launch of a new streaming service, and it's not even the only one this month. We are tired already.
Apple TV + may not be full of new shows right at launch, but there is a list that goes beyond the four programs covered below. (It's also original programming only, so don't expect to find Friends or Cop Rock as you browse.) You can also look for Snoopy In Space ; documentary The Elephant Queen ; a reboot of the & # 39; 90s PBS series Ghostwriter ; Helpsters a new children's series from Sesame Street producers Sesame Workshop; and the first episode of Oprah's Book Club which returns every other month. (The first book: The Water Dancer by Ta-Nehisi Coates .)
A little quick information about the service, if that's all for you: Apple TV + launches for $ 4.99 per month, after a seven-day trial. If you happen to have purchased a new Apple device recently, you probably already have a free year of Apple TV + just waiting to be activated . You can watch tv.apple.com, an iPhone, iPad, Apple TV, iPod Touch or Mac (provided your software is up to date), or a smart TV or streaming device (Roku and Amazon Fire TV stick including ).

For All Mankind (Friday, 3:01
The Morning Show (Friday 03:01): "Once underway, The Morning Show has the addictive rush of old-school TV dramas. Fun, biting, and with just the right dose of trashy zing, this is high-gloss soap – Broadcast News meets LA Law. Gathering this talent (both in front and behind the camera, with overall director Mimi Leder helping most of the first season) must have cost Apple a bunch, but when it results in TV this appealing, it certainly feels worth it. "- Alex McLevy. Read the full aviation review .
Dickinson (Friday 03:01): “Any perceived distance between a story set in the 19th century and the millennial audience it targets becomes less and less easy for every moment of mischief, every scene's vague, underlying trap beat, and at one point rapper Wiz Khalifa. It's a slightly fresh approach with a number of inherent risks … But overall, Alena Smith's Dickinson blends the evergreen charm of similar framed narratives – where young women revolt against societal norms in spiritual name freedom – with it unequivocal modern tone in Drunk History . And for the most part, it works. ”- Shannon Miller. Read full aviation review .
See (Friday 03:01): " Avoiding the pitfalls of a similar work is not enough to make See a compelling watch in the first three episodes. The landscape is alternately forbidding and impressively inspiring by Francis Lawrence's direction (not a stretch for the Hunger Games alum), especially when the story comes from Alkenny. Momo's physical nature gives the action scenes a real shock, and Woodard proves once again that she can do gravitas in her sleep. But the rest of the cast, apart from Hoeks, doesn't make much of an impression … It is probably similar to the bleak stories that have spread in recent years that it is hardly the series that sets the new streamer apart. ” —Danette Chavez.

The Great British Baking Show (Netflix, Friday, 3:01 PM, season finale): Kate Kulzick will recreating the finals of this off-kilter season, as the last three – Alice, David and Steph – prove and next prove their backs one last time.
American Son (Netflix, Friday 3:01 PM, premiere): The Broadway cast of Christopher Demos-Brown's play reunites for this filming (also by Demos-Brown) ; expect gripping performances from stars Kerry Washington, Steven Pasquale, Jeremy Jordan and Eugene Lee.
Queer Eye: In Japan! (Netflix, Friday, 3:00 PM, premiere): This limited four-episode season sees the Fab Five head across the Pacific to meet four new heroes. They are joined by performer and model Kiko Mizuhara, as well as comedian Naomi Watanabe.
Tom Clancy & # 39; s Jack Ryan (Amazon, now available, second season premiere): This season was supposed to arrive today, but Amazon surprised it yesterday, so hey , it is already waiting for you. Josh Model's pre-air review apologizes for not "composite German words to describe Amazon's Jack Ryan – something like langeweilierrregung (" dull-exciting ") or forgessbarververgnugen (" forgetful fun "). "
Saturday Night Live (NBC, Saturday at 23.29): host Kristen Stewart with musical guest Coldplay
RuPaul & # 39; s Drag Race UK (Logo, Friday, 8pm): It's time for the Snatch Game! We can't find a trailer for this specific episode, and you shouldn't Google it either – it's already aired in the UK, as well as on Wow Presents Plus, so you'll end up learning the winner if you dig. Kate Kulzick, Our Reliable Recipes for Drag Race may not cover the queens across the pond, but she looks the same, assuring us that this is a great Snatch game with a big winner. And fear not: The sub-competition from previous winners ends with season 11, so no surprises will be squeezed if you want to see that time BenDeLaCreme played Maggie Smith.
