Monday TV: ‘Black Mirror’-Like ‘Soulmates’

The conceit of the new “Soulmates” (AMC, 10 p.m.) seems familiar: In a time into the future, people are able to take a test to determine their exact partner. The same idea was suggested on “Black Mirror” and the new series is from one if its writers, Will Bridges. Each episode has a different cast and story around the same device. The initial episode stars Sarah Snook of “Succession,” who is always good to see, opposite Kingsley Ben-Adir, who just portrayed Barack Obama in Showtime’s “The Comey Rule.” Other episodes are similarly well cast in what’s certainly the best thing on AMC in a while. 

The roundabout fall season brings another decent show from cable to network tv with season four of norman Lear’s remade “One Day at a Time” (CBS, 9 p.m.) with a Latin cast led by Justina Machado and Rita Moreno. 

Joe Biden participates in a Presidential Town Hall (MSNBC, CNBC, Telemundo, 8 p.m.) in which he won’t be interrupted nearly as much as he was last week.

Two immigrants purposely get arrested by Border Patrol to get inside information on a for-profit detention center in the film “The Infiltrators”, making its debut on “POV” (PBS, 10 p.m., check local listings). 

The new series “The Missing” (Investigation Discovery, 9 p.m.) looks at a pair of recent disappearances.  

“Pawn Stars” (History, 9 p.m.) has a season premiere.
