​Wednesday Night TV's Saving All Thanks for Tomorrow, When It Counts

Tonight's the night, the last night of the week before the holiday bullshit starts. On the one hand you want to make it count, but on the other hand isn't this kind of your Friday? Who wants to go out—the answer is nobody. So let's bundle up, rest up, see what's on the ol' snoozebox before the real toils begin. » 11/26/14 4:11pm Wednesday 4:11pm

The Best Movies and TV Coming to Netflix This December

Baby, it's cold outside. Maybe you've got the post-Thanksgiving blues, maybe you're just snowed in by feet upon feet of climate change. But don't be afraid, don't you give it a second thought! You just settle in tight for a month of new shit on Netflix, forget the stuff we're leaving behind, and I guarantee it'll get… » 11/26/14 10:45am Wednesday 10:45am

Everything Leaving Netflix at the End of November

Nobody wants to talk about stuff leaving Netflix in the middle of the night, any more than we want to talk about weird family vibes this holiday or the fact that we will probably all get snowed in forever while it's happening. So let's think instead about all these Netflix movies that we have the next five days to… » 11/26/14 9:00am Wednesday 9:00am

​Tuesday Night TV Can't Get to Thursday Fast Enough, Frankly

Tonight's TV offers the painful elimination of last night's least worthy singers and dancers, pairs unlikely comedies with unlikelier documentaries, offers a somewhat skewed take on California living, and sees what happens when a supernaturally fast person is temporarily slowed. Maybe give yourself a break from the… » 11/25/14 4:00pm Tuesday 4:00pm

Homeland Last Night Was So Fucking Nuts Even for Homeland

While the rumbling of Homeland's return to awesomeness has been increasing for several weeks, it was last night's episode ("Something Else Is Going On") that proved the true test: Putting such a hugely transitional episode just before the Thanksgiving holiday break means pressure to carry that momentum across the next… » 11/24/14 1:40pm Monday 1:40pm

The Best Movies and TV to Stream This Thanksgiving

Thanksgiving: What is it? A holiday to celebrate the vaguest things we treasure, eat until we explode, and drink until we ditto. Whether you need a moment away, or enjoy your family so much you want to sit in front of a screen silently with them, here is a deluxe list of movies, TV shows, and zany moments available… » 11/21/14 12:45pm 11/21/14 12:45pm

​Thursday Night TV Is Getting Too Real to Deal

Thursday's universally known as the night for television, and has been probably your whole life. Have you ever wondered why that is? I think it has something to do with capitalism probably. Tonight, though, is a very special #TGIT Thursday anyway, because Shondaland is hitting its fall finales, which operate more… » 11/20/14 5:15pm 11/20/14 5:15pm

​Tuesday Night TV Is For Slights, Frights and Fights

Tonight's the night for the long-awaited fifth-season premiere of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, as you probably surmised from the blood-red crescent moon and fifty-foot frozen tides that accompany the old perambulating wolf bitch on her wild hunt each season. If you choose to overlook this warning, at your… » 11/18/14 4:39pm 11/18/14 4:39pm

Monday Night TV Is Already Tired of Christmas

A fun thing to do when planning your night with the TV is to imagine Matthew McConaughey in all of Woody Harrelson's roles throughout history, and vice versa. If Woody Harrelson had starred in The Wedding Planner, How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days, Failure to Launch, Fool's Gold and Ghosts of Girlfriends Past, would we… » 11/17/14 4:00pm 11/17/14 4:00pm

Should I Watch State of Affairs?

Katherine Heigl returns to television—on a different network, in a different decade, with the same manager (her mommy)—to play a character whose time has come: CIA operative Charleston Tucker, whose fiancé is the son of Presidential Twofer Alfre Woodard. Also he is dead, blown up by terrorists in front of their eyes.… » 11/16/14 5:00pm 11/16/14 5:00pm

In Flags, the dismiss/block button is amazing. I would love to see this kind of functionality universally, but in a vertical it's a lifesaver: Without it that's four clicks, and multiple pop-ups, to do a job you already knew you were going to do once you checked the person's history. » 11/15/14 3:18am 11/15/14 3:18am

​Your Weekend TV Streaming Guide

It's been a long week full of weird weather for most of us, and travel for an odd number of people so close to the holidays in my experience, but all of that is over now. It's officially cold enough to log some serious blanket time, so curl up, check out the Weekend Guide to what's airing in the upcoming days, and… » 11/14/14 4:58pm 11/14/14 4:58pm

What to Watch on TV This ​Weekend

Are you having a case of the Cold November Rains? Everywhere you go, there's precipitation of one kind or another. In most of the areas where you are, if you are reading this, it's getting sucky out there. Best to stay in. Have some hot chocolate, watch some television shows. Crawl into the TV waves, like a pouch;… » 11/14/14 4:00pm 11/14/14 4:00pm

Wednesday Night TV Was There When This Shit Started in the First Place

On tonight's television programming there are some hard-to-solve mysteries, a bunch of kiddie porn over on NBC, the Adam Levine Troops will have their revenge, and we learn what makes for a successful career. We also get to see Kyle MacLachlan on vacation, which is when he cuts loose and really gets weird. » 11/12/14 4:50pm 11/12/14 4:50pm
