TV Shows to Watch the Week of Oct. 8, 2018: ‘Charmed,’ ‘The Romanoffs’

Welcome back to Tune In: our weekly newsletter offering a guide to the best of the week’s TV.

Each week, Variety’s TV team combs through the week’s schedule, selecting our picks of what to watch and when/how to watch them. This week, The CW begins rolling out its new shows and “The Romanoffs” debuts on Amazon.

“All American,” The CW, Wednesday, 9 p.m

In the series premiere, Spencer James is a rising high school football player and an A student at South Crenshaw High who is recruited by Beverly High School’s football coach. When Spencer is forced to move in with the coach and his family, Spencer’s vastly different worlds are drawn together. The series is inspired by the life of Spencer Paysinger.

The Romanoffs,” Amazon, Friday

“Titans,” DC Universe, Friday

“Titans” follows young heroes from across the DC Universe as they come of age and find belonging in a gritty take on the classic “Teen Titans” franchise.

“The Haunting of Hill House,” Netflix, Friday (CRITICS’ PICK)

Charmed,” The CW, Sunday, 9 p.m.

In the premiere of the rebooted series, three sisters discover they are all powerful witches following the suspicious death of their mother.

“Camping,” HBO, Sunday, 10 p.m.

This eight-episode series tells the story of a back-to-nature camping trip that quickly becomes a weekend of tested marriages and woman-on-woman crime that won’t soon be forgotten.
