The Diplomat and Florida Man roll off Show Snob’s Weekly 10 this week, as they have been out a while. Apple TV+’s big premiere, Silo, jumps right into Show Snob’s Weekly 10, and HBO’s Somebody Somewhere gets a promotion.

1. Succession (HBO)

The lengths the siblings will go to, in order to betray each other, is what this whole show is founded upon. And it is great to see it in action.

Shiv, as the informant to Matsson, just seconds after each discussion without any ethical concerns, is phenomenal. And then, pretending she is still on team Kendall/Roman with a smile on her face at the party is pure evil.

But Tom convincing Greg he should do the mass layoff on Zoom, is probably this week’s highlight. Only slightly funnier than Mattson saying anything to make everyone feel uncomfortable all the time.

How long have we waited for Tom and Shiv to have a real fight?

2. Yellowjackets (Paramount+)

Unlike other shows, Yellowjackets is steadily building to an amazing crescendo. Now that all of the Yellowjackets are in one place, the Wellness Center, something is going to pop.

The audience deserves the answer to the supernatural questions that have been raised all season long. Are these women just mentally ill or is there actually something strange and dark going on?

3. Mrs. Davis (Peacock)

This show leapfrogs Barry and takes The Diplomat’s spot because it is one of the most original shows out there. Funny, sometimes action-packed, with crazy biblical references and parodies, make this show very different than most of the straightforward dramas out there.

The games played between the nun, the mom, the algorithm, Jesus, and the Knights Templar make this week’s episode riveting.

4. Barry (HBO)

As the last episode implied, we have somehow jumped ahead in time with Barry owning a ranch, married, and has a kid. Witness protection or just on the run?

It was hard to tell. But the show is still weird and great.

5. Citadel (Amazon Prime Video)

I think Amazon has a real hit here. The action is fantastic, and the memory loss aspect makes the mysteries and figuring out the solutions, along with Richard Madden’s character (Mason Kane), interesting.

Secrets and lies abound. I’d like to see a little more Stanley Tucci to pull everything together, but this show is getting better each episode.

6. Somebody Somewhere (HBO)

This Bridget Everett (Camping) comedy, switches back and forth between a buddy comedy and a woman dealing with the loss of her sister and the deterioration of her mother’s health. Throw in a trans wedding, a crazy sister event planner, and singing lessons and you have a great 30 minutes of TV.

7. Silo (Apple TV+)

The Silo book series by Hugh Howey was one of the biggest sellers on Kindle when it came out a few years ago. How those books will turn into a TV series is going to be really fun to watch.

Silo stars Will Patton (Yellowstone) Rashida Jones (Parks and Recreation) and Tim Robbins (Castle Rock). The story is about an underground city living on an Earth where the air is no longer breathable (or is it?).

They don’t have any history of how they got into the silo, why they got there, and what their mission is. But people are asking questions.

8. Lucky Hank (AMC)

Lucky Hank finished season 1 this week. It wasn’t the greatest episode, but we finally figure out how Hank is going to create a list of teachers to fire.

This show clearly has more legs to it, as we need to understand how Lily living in New York is ultimately going to work out, if his daughter will forgive her husband, and if the students will learn to write.

In the end, it’s a pretty good starting season.

9. The Big Door Prize (Apple TV+)

You have to pay attention, close attention, to every single line that Chris O’Dowd says, if you want to catch some of the funniest dialogue of the week. The sarcasm is biting, the one liners are quick, and the insults are stinging.

Cass getting outed as printing fake tickets is shocking in presentation and the presenter.

10. The Power (Amazon Prime Video)

The Power has dropped to the bottom of the list because it is facing one of those traps that some shows fall into. The trap is when characters keep having the same conversation over and over, in the same episode, or week after week.

The ongoing battle between Toni Collette and John Leguizamo’s family has turned from interesting to boring and is jeopardizing the show.

Great Shows That Didn’t Crack Show Snob’s Weekly 10 That You Need to Know About

  • Bupkis (Peacock): Starring Pete Davidson (Staten Island), Joe Pesci (Goodfellas), and Edie Falco (Sopranos). This 30-minute comedy has Davidson playing himself, Falco as his mother, and Pesci as his dying grandfather. Tons of guests like Steve Buscemi (Miracle Workers) and Brad Garrett (Everybody Loves Raymond) make this a funny show as we learn about Davidson’s life and how he grew up. Pesci steals every scene he is in.
  • The Other Two (HBO): In its third season, this is the story of the siblings of a Justin Bieber-like singing sensation. They are terrible people trying to advance their career and social standing. I hope they aren’t going to try to get serious this season. Molly Shannon (Saturday Night Live) stars as the mom.
  • White House Plumbers (HBO): Goofy story of Watergate starring Woody Harrelson (Cheers) and Justin Theroux (Mosquito Coast) as incompetent operatives for Nixon’s White House.
  • Dave (FX): Fantastic show about a rapper making bad decisions – every week. Awesome, hysterical, and sometimes extremely gross.
  • Firefly Lane (Netflix): This show lost some of its fun in the last half season, but still worth a watch.
  • Sweet Tooth (Netflix): The show gets darker as it goes along, young viewers beware.
  • Slip (Roku): A woman keeps traveling to new universes every time she has sex, while looking for love, friendship, and companionship.
  • Rabbit Hole (Paramount): Kiefer Sutherland’s (24) tech thriller about a conspiracy to take over the US democracy ended this week. Decently complex plot with Sutherland-type intensity.

Wait and See

  • Fatal Attraction (Paramount): Getting more interesting this week with the wife’s side of the story.
  • The Last Thing He Told Me (Apple TV+): I still can’t stand the daughter, which makes me sometimes dislike this show. We get that he is in witness protection. Duh.
  • Love & Death (HBO Max): At least there was a grisly death this week.
  • The Company You Keep (ABC): It is so close to being good.
  • Gotham Knights (The CW): Much darker and better than Superman & Lois.
  • Blacklist (NBC): Final season of James Spader’s, Reddington.

Don’t Wait and Don’t See

  • Ted Lasso (Apple TV+): It kills me to have Lasso on this list, but they just have no idea what they are doing.
  • Saint X (Hulu): This show is getting worse with each week, though it could still rebound.
  • Die Hart (Roku): (I know it got renewed).
  • Superman & Lois (The CW)
  • True Lies (CBS)
