Looking for something fresh on TV? Cable networks have been busy rolling out new series, including these four which debut tonight. “Rush” and “Satisfaction” will premiere on USA, and FX will introduce “Married” and “You’re the Worst.”
On “Rush,” a renegade physician privately caters to the elite of Los Angeles for a hefty price tag. Tonight’s show starts at 8 p.m. CT.
Provocative drama “Satisfaction” explores modern marriage through the lens of one couple. The series delves into their shocking and unconventional choices, asking the question, “What do you do when having it all is not enough?” The show begins at 9 p.m. CT.
“Married” is a comedy about being miserably in love. One couple navigates their life of kids and debt in suburbia, hoping to rekindle their once-fiery romance. It airs at 9 p.m. CT.
Original series “You’re the Worst” puts a dark twist on the romantic comedy genre. When a self-destructive narcissist and a cynical people-pleaser meet at a wedding, they begin to fall for one another, despite their best judgment. Showtime is 9:30 p.m. CT.
