Whether you want reality TV or scripted TV shows, you’re covered this weekend

It doesn’t matter what type of TV you love. If it’s reality TV or you’re looking for great scripted TV shows, there’s something to watch this weekend, Aug. 1 to 2.

There are some excellent new drops on streaming services. At the same time, cable channels have something to tune into. We’re breaking down our top picks across the various networks.

The Alienist: Angel of Darkness Episodes 5 and 6

We’re onto the penultimate week of The Alienist: Angel of Darkness. In a way, I’ve enjoyed having two episodes back to back per week, but it means the season is coming to an end much quicker than normal.

However, the next two episodes are major. Now that the team knows Libby is the one that stole Baby Ana, a race is on to find her. At the same time, there are threats to other babies in the world. Can Sara figure out where Libby is likely to go?

At the same time, Lazlo may have an issue with working with the team. Someone is stripping him of the rights to practice his craft, which could mean the team has to turn to their worst enemy to solve the case.

The episodes air starting from 9/8c on TNT on Sunday, Aug. 9.
