The first day of spring is officially tomorrow, Monday, March 20, and the change in seasons also seems to usher in a new wave of shows you’ll want to watch. That couldn’t be more apparent than PBS’s lineup tonight, at least. Fan-favorite period dramas Call the Midwife and Sanditon are back, while the Versailles-set Marie Antoinette makes it debut. It’s the perfect way to spend your Sunday evening and will only get you more excited for the premiere of Queen Charlotte in May, followed by Bridgerton season three.

Speaking of charming British characters, Ted Lasso airs this season’s second episode this Wednesday. After last week’s episode (my heart sank for Ted in the final few minutes), the show keeps raising the stakes and I’m loving it.

Meanwhile, Yellowjackets is back for an epic season-two adventure while Daisy Jones & the Six wraps up its run, giving you all the answers you want to know. And then there’s the fourth season of Netflix’s reality TV hit Love Is Blind, which is all anyone can talk about in our office (some of us have seen it, and it’s loaded).

We also have two exclusives this week: a clip from tonight’s American Idol that involves Katy Perry, astrology, and a Barbra Streisand song; and a scene with the cutest baby goats from Nat Geo and Disney+’s new series with chef Kristen Kish called Restaurants at the End of the World.

On that note, hope you’re enjoying the extra hour of daylight and have caught up on that lost hour of sleep. I’ll see you back here next Sunday for the final season of Succession.

The Company You Keep (ABC): Episode three landed on a cliffhanger (I mean, it kind of had to since the Oscars preempted it last Sunday night), but the question is: Do the feds have Charlie, or is it the bad guys? Either way, it’s not good. What is good, though, is this show. If you haven’t watched it, please start. It’s fun, it’s sexy, and it’s just great entertainment. 10 p.m. ET/9 p.m. CT

Monday, March 20

Love Is Blind (Netflix): Season four is as juicy and dramatic as ever, and I’m afraid that’s all I can say for fear the Netflix reality TV police will come after me. Instead, I’ll just let the official synopsis speak for itself: “Singles who want to be loved for who they are have signed up for a less-conventional approach to modern dating in Seattle, and will choose someone to marry without ever meeting them. Over several weeks, the newly engaged couples will move in together, plan their wedding, and find out if their physical connection matches their strong emotional bond developed in the Pods. When their wedding day arrives, will real-world realities and external factors push them apart, or will they marry the person they fell blindly in love with? Hosted by Nick and Vanessa Lachey, this addictive 12-episode series will uncover whether looks, race or age do matter, or if love really is blind.” Episodes 1–5 available to stream; new episodes will drop next Friday
