I made a gallery of 37 new shows to look forward to in 2018, but just between you and me, I’m only actually excited about 20 of them or so. Also, there are quite a few shows that didn’t make the gallery because I didn’t have photos for them, including Sharp Objects on HBO; Here and Now on HBO (see below under Mark Your Calendars); and You on Lifetime. And I’m sure there are a bunch more I’m not remembering because I’m too busy thinking about how much I have left to do before Monday. SO MUCH LEFT TO DO BEFORE MONDAY. ~insert Cathy cartoon screaming “ACK” here~
