It’s the midst of prelim season here at Cornell, and we all know what that means: procrastinating. So you have three exams this week that you need to study for? Yeah, cool, but have you seen this Hillary Clinton shimmy-mashup video? Trust us, it’s way more interesting than whatever paper you’re supposed to be writing. And in case you need even more of a reason to procrastinate, we’ve teamed up with NBC/Universal Pictures at Cornell to bring you some of the top shows to watch this fall (instead of doing work).


1Designated Survivor

New-President Tom Kirkman is a Cornellian. Enough said; this fact alone means the show deserves your full and undivided attention. Nevermind the suspense and drama as he works around the clock to hold himself, his family, and the country together, just watch it because he wears a Cornell hoodie from time to time. Catch it on ABC at 10PM Eastern on Wednesday nights.

If we had a time machine, we’d probably be going back in time to revisit our prelims from earlier this week – whoops? Every Monday at 10PM you can watch the heroes go back in time to stop a criminal mastermind from altering America’s past, only on NBC. Maybe they can us to stop us from procrastinating while they’re at it?



Oh wait, not Notorious RBG (although she is pretty dope). We’re talking about another new show from ABC, showing Thursday nights at 9. This crime and legal drama takes a look at the sometimes-questionable relationship between the media and criminal law in this new based-on-a-true-story series.


4American Horror Story: My Roanoke Nightmare

The season six premiere had people scratching their heads, and supposedly it’s only going to get crazier. But is that really a surprise? Thankfully AHS is a series you can start watching in season six and not feel totally lost. Tune in on FX at 10PM on Wednesday.


5House of Cards (Seasons 1-4)

Did this week’s presidential debate get you down? Take a break from reality to start (or catch up on!) Netflix’s hit series, House of Cards. According to lead actor Kevin Spacey, Bill Clinton has said the show is 99 percent accurate of what goes on behind the scenes. Best of all though, you can binge watch as much as you want with all four seasons available now for instant streaming. #SoLongWeekend

From the creator of hit comedies like Brooklyn Nine-Nine, Parks and Recreation, and The Office comes this new comedy series. Follow along with Eleanor (Kristen Bell) and Michael (Ted Danson) as they try to figure out just what it means to be in the Good Place, and watch the video above to see how you might fare in the afterlife.
