What to Watch: After only two episodes, The Deuce has been renewed by HBO (there goes my chance to use the headline, HBO Drops a Deuce) and looks to have the network’s drama hit streak back on track. The show is produced by the great David Simon and features one of my all-time favorite backdrops: 1970s NYC.

+ What to Read: “Donald Trump is a values clarifier. He’s a living, breathing, pontificating, lying, tweeting reminder of which values you cherish and what you’re willing to stand up for.
