CBS

The Neighborhood

Look who’s bringing a new attitude to the ’hood. R&B legend Patti LaBelle guest-stars on the sitcom as Marilyn, Calvin’s (Cedric the Entertainer) hard-to-please mother, who shows up when her son is honored by the Chamber of Commerce for his business success and its impact on his community. Could this be the achievement that finally wins her approval?

Candy

Shades of The Thing About Pam, but let’s hope not quite so cheesy, when Jessica Biel (The Sinner) tackles the role of ’80s Texas housewife Candy Montgomery, who finally snaps under the pressure of suburban comformity. Her victim: best friend Betty Gore (Yellowjackets’ Melanie Lynskey), with whose husband (Pablo Schreiber) the married-with-children Candy had been having an affair. In an unusual scheduling move, the docudrama’s five episodes will roll out one a day, Monday through Friday.

Breeders

The edgy British comedy about beleaguered London parents is back for a third season, with the life lesson that raising kids never gets easier. The new season picks up only a few days after the Season 2 finale, when teenage son Luke (Alex Eastwood) punched his dad, Paul (Martin Freeman), who moved out to stay with his mother-in-law (Stella Gonet). Paul’s wife Ally (Daisy Haggard) has her own problems: early menopause, career insecurity and a strained relationship with newly adolescent daughter Ava (Eve Prenelle). Remind me: Was Mother’s Day only yesterday?
