Black Monday (Showtime, January 20)
Showtime’s new black comedy chronicles the day of the financial crash—nope, not that one, but the one that happened on October 19, 1987, which still remains the worst stock market collapse in the history of Wall Street. Starring Don Cheadle and Andrew Rannells (a.k.a. Elijah from Girls), the show follows a group of outsiders who take on the Wall Street establishment and inadvertently cause the catastrophic crash. Even if you know nothing whatsoever about finance, this show looks fun as hell.
