    Primetimer's editors break down what's new and noteworthy on television today.

    If HBO was looking for a new Sunday night hit, it found exactly what it was looking for with Succession. A buzz-worthy successor to past network champs, it's a joy to watch star Brian Cox chew up the scenery as his Logan Roy chews up his family, board members, and rivals alike, before spitting out their bones and making them beg for sausages. Tonight, the fun continues.

    NEW EPISODE: The intrigue grows with each new episode of Succession. Tonight, Logan brings Shiv to Waystar, which makes Kendall and Gerri extremely nervous. Meanwhile, Roman begins a six-week management program in which he is forced to deal with normal people. And back at the company headquarters, one of ATN's star anchors is embroiled in controversy. 9:00 PM ET on HBO
