Around the remote: Chuck Barney’s TV picks for Sept. 24-30


Don’t Miss: “Star Trek: Discovery” – Set 10 years before Captain Kirk and Mr. Spock launched their mission to boldly go where no man had gone before, this new space saga is an ambitious endeavor to reboot the beloved sci-fi franchise on TV after a 12-year absence. With a cast led by Sonequa Martin-Green as First Officer Michael Burnham, the story features a new ship, new characters, and new missions. After the first episode premieres on broadcast television, the entire series will move exclusively to the CBS All Access digital subscription platform. 7:30 p.m. Sunday, CBS.
