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. As many across the country continue to practice self-isolation due to coronavirus, why not while away a few hours on some of the shows below?
“Love Island,” CBS, Monday, 8 p.m.
The U.S. version of “Love Island” is back for a second this week, with plenty of love, but less island. This season is being shot and produced out of a rooftop villa in Las Vegas due to coronavirus production limitations. Still, expect there to be plenty of coupling, uncoupling and drama as another group of singles seek to find their special someone.
“I May Destroy You,” HBO, Monday, 9 p.m.
After 12 episodes, the first season of Michaela Coel’s groundbreaking drama closes out with an episode that will rock viewers to their core. In an interview with Variety, Coel talked about how the show, and the finale in particular, deal with trauma and its lasting effects on people.
