Upcoming Week in TV: 11/6 Politics, Politicos & Politicians

By Alyssa & DRWHO42

Now that the Cubs and their fans are celebrating a well deserved Major League Championship we have one more important event before TV returns to normalcy. With the Election dominating the TV schedule for the earlier portion of the week this is a great time to catch up on the DVR stack or fire up Netflix for some fan favorites like Black Mirror & The Expanse. NBC’s Saturday Night Live is on a roll & their special airing on Monday night looks to be worth watching LIVE. All the other late night comedians should be fun too, expect them to be in rare form.

There are a few Fall finales this week with Superstore, Chicago Med, Better Things, and The Blacklist taking bows.
