DVR Alert! Here’s What’s on TV Today

Did you know Americans watch the most TV? Of course we do – with like 300 different networks and streaming services producing so many original shows it’d literally be impossible to find enough time to watch all of ’em.
But we’re gonna try. According to a study, people in North America watch more TV than anyone else in the world. We watch an average of four hours and three minutes a day, which is WELL above the worldwide average of just under three hours.

The study also found that American TV shows are the most popular worldwide. British shows are second. You can celebrate our achievement with some great new television.

New TV:

  • The series premiere of “Kung Fu” at 8:00 p.m. on the CW.  Olivia Liang stars in the 2021 reimagining of the classic 1972 series.  The original was set in the Old West and starred David Carradine.

His character, Kwai Chang Caine, was a gentle, bald-headed Shaolin monk who was just as spiritual as he was a badass.  He’d been raised at the monastery since he was a boy and came to America as a fugitive after his mentor was murdered.

This version is set in the present day.  Her character, Nicky Shen, is an American who’d dropped out of college to train at the monastery, but then returns to San Francisco to fix things with her family and hunt down her mentor’s killer.  (Trailer)
