    2020 has been… unique, and a year like no other calls for a political convention like no other. Until recently, the Republican National Committee was aiming to hold a convention that at least in some manner resembled the conventions we're all used to seeing on TV (Think big crowds, balloons, and lots of confetti), but the Democratic National Committee has been planning for a virtual convention for months. Today we'll get our first peak at what they've been cooking up. Also today: HBO's I May Destroy You nears its season finale, Amy Schumer her chef husband Chris Fischer serve up a new season of Amy Schumer Learns to Cook, and it's Snatch Game time on Drag Race Canada.
