The 5 Must-Watch TV Shows Of November

Courtesy of SHOWTIME

We fully support the idea of taking regular breaks from your many screens—digital detoxes can save your life, after all—but you may have to wait until next month to implement them as there are quite a few things happening in the world of TV you won’t want to miss this month. Here, the top of the crop, including a show that may even help you survive the anxiety of election night.


The Crown

This Netflix original is allegedly the most expensive TV series ever made, so it had better be good. The Crown centers around Queen Elizabeth II, a.k.a. the current Queen of England. The first ten episodes air on November 4 and will span one decade of the queen's life beginning in 1947, when she married Philip.


Stephen Colbert’s Live Election Night Democracy’s Series Finale: Who’s Going To Clean Up This Sh*t?

We don't know about you, but the mere thought of the impending end of the election has us breaking out into hives. If you're experiencing anything similar, we suggest you plan to spend the evening with Stephen Colbert, who will host a live election special on Showtime. If anything can get us through this nail-biter, it's an uncensored Stephen.


Gilmore Girls

Gilmore Girls fans, rejoice! The day of this revival's release is finally (almost) upon us! The highly-anticipated GG reincarnation comes to Netflix on November 25 and promises to be one of the biggest television events of 2016.


The Affair (Season 3)

OMG, if you haven't yet seen the season three trailer for The Affair, you must stop whatever you're doing and watch it now. All the feels! This steamy show returns to Showtime on November 20.


Search Party

Search Party is a dark comedy starring Arrested Development's Alia Shawkat as a 20-something who becomes obsessed with solving the disappearance of a girl she barely knew in college. We're hoping the show, which will marathon on TBS starting on November 21, will fill the Broad-City-sized hole in our comedy-deprived hearts.
