With so much available to watch on television and streaming services, we all experience a bit of indecision paralysis. That is why we make it easy for you to find what to see tonight, December 13, 2021.
Our guide highlights a couple of the best options, as well as a quick rundown of what’s new on TV tonight. It goes hand in hand with our recommendations on what to see this weekend.
Today, we’re still reeling from everything that happened in the Succession season 3 finale and Yellowstone season 4 episode 7. Once you’ve processed all that drama, you can turn your attention to a new comedy series from the creator of Superstore and an HBO Documentary on Sesame Street.
Street Gang: How We Got to Sesame Street (HBO)
Can you tell me how to get to Sesame Street? This documentary reveals how we all ended up in an inclusive, educational, inspiring, and loving neighborhood. It tells how Sesame Workshop co-founder Lloyd Morrisett and television producer Joan Ganz Cooney came up with the groundbreaking idea for a series that could help young children of color prepare for school.
His team of writers and educators was soon joined by puppeteer Jim Henson, whose Muppets became the heart of the show. The documentary features interviews with beloved cast members, including Sonia Manzano (María) and Emilio Delgado (Luis). Take out the tissues though – the deaths of Henson and Will Lee (Mr. Hooper) may make you cry.
Airs at 10 p.m. ET on HBO and HBO Max
American Auto (NBC)
The store-sized hole in our hearts is ready to be filled by American Auto, a new workplace comedy from creator Justin Spitzer. It takes place within the automotive industry in Detroit. Payne Motors has a new CEO (Ana Gasteyer) who knows nothing about automobiles. You can’t even drive one!
But these are times of change for the business and they need to adapt or be sent to the junkyard. Fortunately, you can count on a brilliant crew (played by Harriest Dyer, Jon Barinholtz, Michael B. Washington, and others). Well, mostly brilliant, as the first project they present to the CEO is a self-driving car which might be a bit racist.
