Netflix’s Eric, Star Trek: Discovery’s series finale, and more new TV this week


The best new TV to watch this week includes the Hacks season 3 finale, Hulu’s Under the Bridge (starring Lily Gladstone), and a new Paramount Plus thriller.
The week has barely started (if you’re in the U.S. and reading this on the Monday holiday: even less so!), and already there’s a whole lot of TV to get through.
With any luck, the long weekend gave you some time to catch up with things — after all, as our summer preview is any indication, there’s only gonna be even more coming soon. But while a bunch of new stuff might be coming up, there’s plenty to watch this week alone. Under the Bridge and Hacks are both wrapping up really strong seasons, while shows like Pyramid Game and We Are Lady Parts are just ramping up.
