Next time you go out for a pizza with a waddle of penguins, you should know they will probably order anchovies...

Tonight’s new episode, “Ghouli,” is not the final installment of this Season 11 of The X-Files. Nor is it the final episode co-starring Gillian Anderson, who revealed in January that this would be her last year with the series, which began on Fox back in the 1990s. (She is slated for future appearances this year, however, so don’t be too spooked by the dire-looking photo from tonight’s episode.) But it is the last of the 2018 episodes sent by Fox for critics to prev

It took 13 years of planning – but in 2015, the designers behind Solar Impulse II reached for the skies, and their dreams, by sending aloft their test vehicle in hopes of it becoming the first solar-powered aircraft to circumnavigate the globe. Did they succeed? And whether they did or didn’t, did you ever hear of it until now? Check local listings.

In tonight’s episode three, Andrew Cunanan (Darren Criss) commits two more murders as he continues his increasingly impulsive killing spree. His victims are his third and fourth kills – setting the stage for his fifth, who, very soon on this American Crime Story series, will be the man whose death we've seen already in the opening episode: Gianni Versace.

Last week’s inaugural episode of Waco, the inaugural scripted miniseries presented by the inaugural Paramount Network – a lot of firsts here – managed to draw just over 1 million viewers in the targeted 18-49 demo. Tonight is Episode 2, with Taylor Kitsch from Friday Night Lights as Branch Davidian cult leader David Koresh, and Michael Shannon from Boardwalk Empire portraying an FBI hostage negotiator.

So, Samantha Bee, what was your response to last night’s State of the Union Address by President Trump? Don’t be shy…

In 1933, special effects pioneer Willis O’Brien mixed live-action footage and stop-motion monsters to create the king of the apes. King Kong’s proportions may have kept changing throughout the film, but there’s no denying how exciting it must have been, and somehow still is, to see Kong take his iconic place atop the Empire State Building. And Fay Wray is almost as much fun to watch, though for different reasons.

Sorry, that’s State of the Union. My mistake. Actually, the House of Representatives’ mistake, but still: As 1968 presidential write-in candidate Pat Paulsen would say, “Picky, picky, picky.” But tonight, it’s not President Paulsen addressing the joint bodies of Congress. It’s President Donald Trump, making his first State of the Union speech since occupying the Oval Office. Many broadcast, cable and news networks will be covering this live, including CBS, ABC

Mel Brooks’ 1967 comic masterpiece is going to be showcased, along with Brooks himself,  this April at the annual TCM Classic Film Festival. Meanwhile, or in case you’re not traveling to Hollywood for the occasion, TCM tonight presents The Producers in prime time, with all of its lunacy, irreverence and utter brilliance intact. If you can’t sing along with every verse of “Springtime for Hitler,” it’s a skill that’s never too late to be acquired&hell
