The second season of HBO’s ‘Succession’ starts
Succession (9 p.m., HBO) - Season 2 of this great HBO drama series starts. It follows a Rupert Murdoch-type family running a conservative media empire, but there’s as much family drama as professional drama. And the performances are excellent (I particularly love Kieran Culkin in this). In the second season, the Roy family struggles to regain control of their empire, but something in their past threatens to destroy them.
