In a week full of new, gripping TV moments, none enthralled us quite as much as the Oprah with Meghan and Harry CBS special. Viewers everywhere were glued to their screens as couple Meghan Markle and Prince Harry spoke out about their end of the decision to step back from the royal family.

The drama didn’t end there, as WandaVision came to an emotional end and Matt James made some tough decisions on The Bachelor. We still got some great laughs, though, with new episodes of fan favorites Bob’s Burgers and The Amber Ruffin Show.
