Today, during HBO's presentation at the TV Critics Association summer press tour, the cable network announced (via Deadline) that their new sci-fi Western series Westworld will make its debut on Sunday, October 2 at 9PM, and the following week, the new comedies Divorce and Insecure will be added to HBO's Sunday night lineup as well.
