NEW YORK, Aug. 29, 2016 — When the Olympics ended Aug. 21 on NBC, the dog days of the summer TV season arrived the next day, leaving a TV columnist to depend heavily on his imagination to get him through last week’s five TV blogs.

The results included two reviews (yes, two new shows actually premiered this week), a look at the Ryan Lochte mess and NBC’s role in it, a column about a puppy, and a peek inside the mind of Hillary Clinton as she watches TV. How’d these ideas turn out? You be the judge: Read all five of my MediaPost TV blogs from last week with these links:
