The summer nights are still heating up and so is CraveTV’s latest line up of shows, movies and specials. Making headlines this month are two very different comedies. First is Sacha Baron Cohen’s hugely controversial Who Is America?, which has already resulted in one senator resigning from office. Next is the latest installment in Comedy Central’s famous Celebrity Roasts, this time claiming action star Bruce Willis as its latest victim. Sorry, we meant honoree.
Plus, new episodes of The Affair and Our Cartoon President, the latest Stephen King series Castle Rock, and much more coming to CraveTV in August.
From The Good Doctor to Good Behaviour, great titles are coming to CraveTV in August
THE AFFAIR, SEASON 4New episodes every Sunday.

THE ROAST OF BRUCE WILLISAugust 3
He’s saved the world as John McClane. He’s seen dead people as Malcolm Crowe. He’s frantically searched for his father’s watch in Pulp Fiction. Now Bruce Willis is the latest celeb to get taken down a notch or two in his own Comedy Central Roast. With a panel full of celebs, comedians, and one very famous ex-wife, Willis takes on his most difficult role yet – an actor who doesn’t take themselves seriously. Yippee-ki-yay. CraveTV
CASTLE ROCKNew episodes every Wednesday.
Four words: psychological thriller Stephen King. If your interest is piqued, you’re in for a wild ride in the new series Castle Rock. Andre Holland plays Henry Deaver, an attorney who returns to the small town of Castle Rock after fleeing over accusations he killed his father. The impressive cast is rounded out by Two and A Half Men’s Melanie Lynskey, Sissy Spacek, and Spacek’s daughter Schulyer Fisk, who plays a younger version of her mother’s character. Castle Rock also marks Bill Skarsgard’s second Stephen King project, having just terrified movie goers as the clown in IT. CraveTV
WHO IS AMERICA?New episodes every Sunday.
In case you feel like there aren’t enough offensive things happening in America right now, English comedian Sacha Baron Cohen is here to push the level of discomfort over the edge. The man who brought us Borat, Bruno and Ali G is back and his new series has already made headlines for ‘tricking’ Sarah Palin and resulting in a senator from Georgia resigning for his racist remarks. Thanks to Cohen, we now know that politics are a mess south of the border. Practice your shocked face. CraveTV

OUR CARTOON PRESIDENTNew episodes every Sunday.
Late night host Stephen Colbert has never been afraid to tackle politics and now the comedian is bringing his sharp wit and hilarious monologues to the world of animation. Expanding the first season with seven new episodes, Our Cartoon President takes on the sometimes hilarious, often terrifying story goldmine that is the Trump administration. It’s like Veep, but animated, more outrageous, and sadly, pretty accurate. Stream the first half of Our Cartoon President now on CraveTV. CraveTV
THE GOOD DOCTOR, SEASON 1August 10
It was the number one drama this past fall on CTV and now it’s ready to be binged on CraveTV.

GOOD BEHAVIOR, SEASON 2August 17
Far from Downton Abbey, English actor Michelle Dockery is back for a second season as ex-con and current con woman Letty Raines.
