What to Watch Tonight: It's Fantasy Suite Time on The Bachelorette

Plus, a made-for-Comedy Central movie

Monday is a holiday and Tuesday is a quiet night in TV land, and since the best show to watch on both nights happens to be the same show, we're combining Monday and Tuesday into a single post. That show is The Bachelorette, which reaches its highest point of drama — fantasy suites — in this week's episodes. We're also intrigued by Out of Office, a made-for-TV movie on Comedy Central that we know nothing about except that it has an all-star comedy cast and is written and directed by Paul Lieberstein, aka Toby from The Office

Our full list of editors' picks for Monday, Sept. 5-Tuesday, Sept. 6 is below, but if that's not enough and you're looking for even more hand-picked recommendations, sign up for our free, spam-free Watch This Now newsletter that delivers the best TV show picks straight to your inbox. You can also look at our guide to everything to watch in September, as well as our list of suggestions for what to watch next based on shows you already like.

The Bachelorette airs Monday and Tuesday at 8/7c this week while Gabby spends some quality time with Erich, Jason, and Johnny, and Rachel gets to know Aven, Tino, and Zach better. Get ready to see more morning-after montages than you ever thought would be possible.

Now on Peacock
Sterling K. Brown and Regina Hall star as a pastor and his wife, respectively, in this mockumentary about a once-powerful couple trying to rebuild their megachurch empire and reputation after a public scandal.

Devil in Ohio

Series now on Netflix
Bones star Emily Deschanel returns to television in a role that might actually involve more bones. Based on the novel by Daria Polatin, which was inspired by a true story, Devil in Ohio follows a psychiatrist (Deschanel) who endangers her family when she takes in a mysterious cult escapee (Madeline Arthur). It's a Lifetime movie in the form of a Netflix limited series, which is exactly what fall is for. Sign me up for any show about weird rituals in cornfields. -Kelly Connolly [Trailer]

Wow, it's nice that they made a movie about the guy who narrates Never Have I Ever. Just kidding, John McEnroe, I love you and know you're a tennis legend. McEnroe tells his own story in this intimate film about his life and career, covering his many riveting matches and his many infamous confrontations on and off the court. If you've been watching the US Open and thinking, "Cool, but I could also use a history lesson," this is the doc for you. -Allison Picurro [Trailer

The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power

Now on Amazon Prime Video
Want to see what half a billion dollars looks like? Amazon's most expensive bet since same-day delivery is this eight-episode series set in J. R. R. Tolkien's fantasy world during the Second Age of Middle-earth, thousands of years before the popular trilogy. But hey, there are still dwarves, elves, and orcs, as well as details on the forging of the Rings of Power and Sauron's rise. The first two episodes premiere Thursday, Sept. 1 at 9 p.m. ET and 6 p.m. PT before moving to Fridays at midnight ET and 9 p.m. PT for subsequent episodes. Yet another reason the left coast is the best coast. In his TV Guide review, Keith Phipps says the ambitious new series is off to a promising start and "has already established itself as one of the most visually striking shows around." -Tim Surette
