TVNewsCheck,

The latest addition to Fox-owned WNYW New York (DMA 1) is Simone in the City, a 30-minute, weekly lifestyle and entertainment program hosted by entertainment reporter Simone Boyce. It will debut Aug. 1.

In this new weekend series (10 a.m. on Saturdays), Boyce will showcase all New York has to offer and explore the city’s top destinations and hidden gems. From rock climbing in the Monhonk Mountains, to canoeing in the Gowanus Canal, to throwing the perfect Hampton’s party, Boyce will introduce viewers to interesting and inspiring people and places.

She will take New Yorkers on her ride as she attempts stand-up comedy with some coaching from Michelle Buteau (co-host of VH1’s Big Morning Buzz), jet-skis through Rockaway beach, fishes off the coast of Long Beach and visits some of the city’s best eateries.

WNYW VP-GM Lew Leone said: “Simone is unique, likeable and always up for a challenge. I think viewers will enjoy her New York exploits while she discovers exciting things to do in this great state.”

Boyce added: "Simone in the City is my love letter to New York. It's an intimate look at the people and places that inspire and challenge me. I hope our audience has as much fun watching it as I do producing it.”

    A reassuring example of older means getting better, Will & Grace struts back to NBC bolder, brassier and bawdier. Some like it tart, and this frisky frolic delivers. After eight seasons, the beloved sitcom felt faded at its fade-out in 2006. Eleven years later, the revival packs a joyous kick in the first three episodes. Here is an absolutely fabulous return with four irrepressible stars who are at their very best. Will & Grace is no gay dinosaur.

    Wonderstruck, overstuffed, corny and stirring, Star Trek: Discovery stands tall alongside the best-regarded incarnations of the Trek franchise even as it raids elements from all of them (including the recent J.J. Abrams film series, which Paramount says is set in an alternate timeline that has nothing to do with this one). Though handsomely produced, the show’s imagination seems to have been slightly reined in by commercial mandates — namely, reinvigorating Trek as a TV property and serving as a marquee title that would lure customers to CBS All Access, the network’s subscription-only service.
