Aug. 14 TV Picks: ‘Satisfaction’ on USA
TV picks for Thursday, Aug. 14, include “Satisfaction” on USA, “NY Med” on ABC and “You’re the Worst” on FX.
An interesting new drama that focuses on a married couple coping with modern marriage. The story lines can teeter on the edge of absurdity (male escorts, extramarital sex), but the grounded presence of leads Matt Passmore and Stephanie Szostak makes this worth a look. 10:01 p.m. Thursday, Aug. 14, on USA (seattletimes.com/tvlistings).
