It boasts an impressive cast (if not matching early reviews). We’ve … Continue reading What To Watch: 04/17/2022
There’s not all that much that’s new that’s not Christmas with the notable exception of one of the buzziest shows in television with a finale that has a reveal of its own cliffhanger, and that would be Jason’s pick of the day. JASON’S PICK:Succession [HBO, … Continue reading What To Watch: 12/12/2021
Even a no-frills Oscar ceremony will dominate a Sunday. Tonight, it’s the 93rd Annual Academy Awards, which will go on without a host. That’s relatively normal these days, but this pandemic affair will be even more subdued as there will be less pomp and circumstance … Continue reading What To Watch: 04/25/2021
What a great night of Sunday TV fearuring so much great animation, a 3-wheeled car scam by a flawed trans hero(?), nothing but razzle-dazzle and the amazing return of John Oliver for his long-awaited eighth season. Also a new episode of the longest-running scripted show … Continue reading What To Watch: 02/14/2021

It’s the night of the great battle — we’re talking long enough for Roddy Piper to get Keith David to put on the glasses six-plus times (THEY MATH!). There’s also a new hard-hitting show from a controversial Obama appointee, the sixtieth on-air show that Greg … Continue reading What To Watch: 04/28/2019

It is LITERALLY the biggest night of the whole year for edgy comedy and adventure and torts and marrying strangers and, um, other things probably. So let’s get right down to it as there is LITERALLY no place we would rather be … than talking about September 5th’s television, as Mary + Jane come in and Rizzoli & Isles goes out.

It’s week two in Las Vegas, and all eyes are on Jessie Graff, the spritely, strong, stunt woman breaking barriers and records. Last week Graff was the first woman to get through Stage 1 of the finals, and surely she’ll be the first woman to get through Stage 2, too.

- On the other side of TV life, Discovery uncorks its six-part scripted series about the rise of the two-wheeled motorized vehicle, Harley and the Davidsons.
- We wouldn’t normally hawk a uniquely-TLC show like 90 Day Fiance here, but with the likely groom coming in from Tunisia, this one could be more interesting and poignant than most of these.
