What To Watch – Wednesday, May 30, 2018

Wednesday nights are going to be a great place for 10pm television for the foreseeable future. With the series premiere of Reverie tonight and the ongoing seasons of Colony and Six, there is plenty to watch in that space.  Also tonight, the series finale of The Americans.

Earlier in the night, we tread water with some light Summer TV fare, the season premieres of American Ninja Warrior and MasterChef. But really, its all about getting to 10pm.
