The Muppets join Taika Waititi’s Academy Award winner as top TV options this week, alongside Major League Baseball.

Here at the end of July, staring August dead in the face, without movie theaters to tide you over, television is paramount. Luckily, a few high profile TV options have film relations to them, including the Oscar-winning “Jojo Rabbit” hitting HBO and a new take on The Muppets in “Muppets Now” heading to streaming. They make for a pair of options to stave off the summertime blues, alongside the long-awaited first full week of the baseball season.

Pick of the Week

Muppets Now Trailer Brings Kermit and the Gang to Disney 990x521 1

“Muppets Now” (Disney+)- Friday, July 31

This new take on The Muppets hopes to bring the beloved puppets back into the cultural mainstream. Disney has not had a ton of success lately with them, but this new take, an improvised situation comedy, has some potential. If it succeeds, Disney+ will have a family-friendly hit on their hands, that’s for sure.

Major League Baseball (FOX)- Thursday, July 30

At last, baseball is back! The season finally got underway last Thursday when the New York Yankees took on the Washington Nationals. The next day, the rest of Major League Baseball kicked off, with the other teams beginning their 60 game spring to the postseason. Now, FOX has their first Thursday night game of the season. If you’re a sports fan, this, alongside the Spring to 60 is a momentous event!

Jojo Rabbit (HBO) – Saturday, August 1

Written by Joey Magidson

When he’s not obsessing over new Oscar predictions on a weekly basis, Joey is seeing between 300 and 350 movies a year. He views the best in order to properly analyze the awards race/season each year, but he also watches the worst for reasons he mostly sums up as "so you all don't have to". In his spare time, you can usually find him complaining about the Jets or the Mets. Still, he lives and dies by film. Joey's a voting member of the Broadcast Film Critics Association.
