Not even a pandemic can get in the way of must-see TV.
It has, however, made network lineups a bit different this fall. Due to the coronavirus, Hollywood and television production was halted over the summer, which stopped many new shows from getting made. So what’s airing in their place? To fill in the programming gaps, networks are re-releasing hits from other niche platforms, introducing them to an even bigger audience.
Below, the 10 most anticipated shows — some brand-new, others familiar — that will make social distancing a little more scintillating.
“The Drew Barrymore Show,” Sept. 14, Syndicated (check your local listings)
Drew Barrymore grew up in Hollywood, and now she’s making the jump to the small screen with her own talk show. The first week will be a parade of famous faces, with guests including Cameron Diaz and Lucy Liu for a “Charlie’s Angels” reunion, as well as Adam Sandler, Reese Witherspoon, and Gabrielle Union, and Jane Fonda.
“Star Trek: Discovery,” Sept. 24 at 10 p.m., CBS
“Star Trek: Discovery” typically airs on CBS All Access to a limited audience of paying subscribers. However, this fall, the 1960s-era drama — which takes place roughly a decade before the original “Star Trek” — will be available on regular CBS. This is good news for Trekkies who have held off on signing up for yet another streaming platform.

Why an ‘active’ approach to risk modelling is key to navigating markets today
Whether investors are aiming for a cautious approach or a riskier investment profile with the potential for higher returns, Architas’ Blended Fund range is designed to match a range of investor risk appetites. And like many asset managers, Architas predominantly uses two approaches to define asset allocation within the five risk bands used in the Blended Range – strategic and tactical.
Whilst risk model provider EValue’s quantitative approach to asset allocation takes into account the long-term performance of different asset classes and the likely future performance given current valuations, along with long-term measures of volatility and correlations with other asset classes. Yet as with most systems of its kinds, EValue focuses on the long term; it is unable to analyse short-term market movements and fluctuations. So whilst it would have seen that in Q1 2020 markets fell by a record percentage before rebounding, it will not be able to factor in the cost of the coronavirus and lockdown and its impact on markets. Similarly, it is not able to consider ongoing Brexit woes, geo-political trade wars or the outcome of the US election in 2020.
