Chuck Barney’s TV and streaming picks for Aug. 2-8
DON’T MISS: “Hiroshima: 75 Years Later” — This two-hour documentary is described as “a highly personal understanding of the most devastating experiment in human history.” Marking a historic anniversary, it recalls the first detonation of a nuclear weapon in wartime on Aug.6, 1945 and the end of World War II. Told entirely from the first-person perspective of leaders, physicists, soldiers and survivors, the film examines the moral, scientific and military conundrums of this game-changing chapter in history. (9 p.m. Sunday, History Channel).
SUNDAY: In “Fridge Wars,” two chefs compete to see who can whip up the best meals — using only the ingredients that host Emma Hunter has raided from the refrigerators of unsuspecting families. The chefs have just 45 minutes to get dinner on the table — cooking with ingredients they’ve never seen and for people they’ve never met. (8 p.m., The CW).
MONDAY: “I May Destroy You” has quickly emerged as one of the summer’s best new shows. In tonight’s episode, Arabella’s bloated social media presence finds her more glued to her phone than ever, perpetually internalizing the stress of her followers. (9 p.m., HBO).
MONDAY: How’s this for a sugary spin-off? In “Chopped: Sweets,” four bold pastry artists race to make mouth-watering treats from baskets of baffling ingredients as the clock ticks away. At stake: $10,000. (10 p.m., Food Network).
TUESDAY: “America’s Got Talent” takes a break from its current competition to celebrate 15 years of entertainment. The retrospective special features some of the biggest viral acts over the years, including winners Kodi Lee, Shin Lim and Grace Vanderwaal, as well as “AGT: The Champions” winners V. Unbeatable and Season 13 performance troupe Zurcaroh. (8 p.m., NBC).
WEDNESDAY: For only the second time in 22 seasons — and for the first time since 2006 — “Big Brother” features an all-star cast. Included: winners, finalists, “legends,” memorable personalities and some of the best to never win the game. Julie Chen Moonves returns as host. (9 p.m., CBS).
WEDNESDAY: The new drama series “Coroner” follows Dr. Jenny Cooper (Serinda Swan), a young woman whose life is upended by the untimely death of her husband. Seeking to change her professional focus, she becomes the newly appointed coroner in Toronto. (9 p.m., The CW).
THURSDAY: For the new film “An American Pickle,” Seth Rogen plays two roles in a wildly offbeat tale about a struggling factory worker who, in 1920, falls into a vat of pickles and is brined for 100 years. He emerges in present-day Brooklyn, where he meets his great grandson — a mild-mannered computer coder whom he can’t even begin to understand. (HBO Max).
FRIDAY: “Howard” is a revelatory documentary about Howard Ashman, the late lyricist behind Disney classics like “Aladdin,” “Beauty and the Beast” and “The Little Mermaid.” With archival footage, personal films and photographs, as well as interviews with Ashman’s friends and family, the film examines his creative drive and the process behind the music. (Disney+).
SATURDAY: Clint Eastwood directed the 2019 drama “Richard Jewell.” The film depicts the true story of security guard Richard Jewell (Paul Walter Hauser), who found a bomb during the 1996 Summer Olympics in Atlanta and was hailed as a hero, only to later become a suspect. The cast also includes Sam Rockwell, Kathy Bates, Jon Hamm, and Olivia Wilde. (8 p.m., HBO).
