What’s On Tonight: We need a Hero! We’re holding out for a Hero in the Yonkers light
Here’s what’s up in the world of TV for Sunday, August 30th. All times are Eastern.
Show Me A Hero (HBO, 8 p.m.) The nice thing about this age of endless TV we live in is that anything can get made for television—even a miniseries about a Yonkers housing crisis—and it can turn out to be one of the best things of the year. The superstar tag team of David Simon, Paul Haggis, and Oscar Isaac (as well as a stupidly talented supporting cast) have produced a real gem in the final days of summer, and we’re excited to see how it ends. Genevieve Valentine is on hand to take us through the last two hours, and to take a shot every time a Springsteen track kicks in.
