Here’s what’s happening in the world of television for Sunday, July 15. All times are Eastern. 

Top pick

Who Is America? (Showtime, 10 p.m.): Sacha Baron Cohen kicks off a series of lifelong feuds with people like Sarah Palin, Roy Moore, and other folks unfamiliar with his tendency to craft satiric interviews—or unable to recognize Cohen in disguise. Here’s how Showtime describes his new series Who Is America?: “The seven-episode series will explore the diverse individuals, from the infamous to the unknown across the political and cultural spectrum, who populate our unique nation.” Tune in to see Dick Cheney signing a waterboarding kit and Congressman Joe Walsh receiving an award for “Significant Contributions To The State Of Israel,” among what appears to be an avalanche of other ruses.


Regular coverage

The Affair (Showtime, 9 p.m.)
Pose (FX, 9 p.m.) 
Sharp Objects (HBO, 9 p.m.)
Preacher (AMC, 10 p.m.)


Wild card

Bonus Family (Netflix): Or, if you’re just sick of our country right now (and who could blame you), cast your sights toward the Nordic lands, which always rate highly in happiness surveys. Maybe this is why: Netflix just dropped season two of Bonus Family, in which a Swedish couple navigates their relationship along with each other’s kids, exes, and in-laws. At least you’ll be able to visit a sane-seeming nation from the comfort of your living room.
