Hump day! We're halfway through the work week, which very much looked like the previous week, and the week before that. Such is life in 2020. But the good news is there's still more on TV than ever before.

And for sports fans — particularly those who are of the soccer persuasion — today is a pretty important day because it marks the return of the English Premier League , with a pair of games on the schedule. And today we also get the Coppa Italia final, to see which team reigns supreme in Italy.

Plus there's plenty to see on late-night TV, and a few new shows on your favorite streaming services. Read on for the full slate!
