This Week in TV: Live 'All in the Family' and 'Jeffersons,' Netflix's 'What/If'
The 2018-19 TV season comes to an end in the week of May 20, which means a bunch more season finales and a handful of summer shows making their debuts. Heading into Memorial Day, though, it's not a particularly heavy week for premieres.
Here is The Hollywood Reporter's rundown of some of the coming week's highlights. It would be next to impossible to watch everything, but let THR point the way to worthy options each week. All times are ET/PT unless noted.
