In tonight’s new episode, Rebecca (Rachel Bloom) visits her mother, played by Tovah Feldshuh – who sent Rebecca into a tailspin not too long ago by surreptitiously dosing her with mood-alerting drugs. This time, however Rebecca acts, and whatever musical fantasies she envisions and embodies, the inspiration comes from her imagination, not her medicines.

Tonight’s guests for this new edition include Nicole Kidman and Stephen Fry. Fry talks about his latest book, a continuation of his exploration of various myths and heroes, and Kidman listens so intently, and is so impressed, that at the end, she asks his IQ.

SPECIAL PREMIERE: The LEGO movies, with Batman and other entries, have proven its worth as an oddball alternate way of looking at, and enjoying, some of pop culture’s most beloved entertainment franchises. Now, for this TV special, LEGO goes to the Jurassic Park world, with a prequel that has future movie protagonists Owen and Claire being assigned to move some of the first dinosaurs across the island.

This 1963 movie is widely, and rightly, hailed as the best Hitchcock movie not made by Alfred Hitchcock. It’s written by Peter Stone, whose other screenplays include The Taking of Pelham One Two Three and 1776, and directed by Stanley Donen – and it stars one of Hitchcock’s best leading men, Cary Grant. Also starring in this marvelous mystery are the city of Paris, the setting throughout, and the charming Audrey Hepburn, who plays a woman whose husband is murdered. She ends up

The ABC series Disneyland began, in 1955, as a thinly disguised full-length prime-time promotion for Walt Disney’s theme park, which was about to open. Today, there are two parks in the U.S., and more around the world, but the concept behind tonight’s holiday special is precisely the same: Magical Holiday Celebration is meant to showcase, and promote, Disney’s theme parks. The guest stars scheduled to perform include Gwen Stefani, Meghan Trainor and Andrea Bocelli – and t

The title is a bit misleading, because it sounds like this is the 86th year NBC has presented the Christmas tree lighting as a TV event. Not even close. But giant trees have been imported to midtown Manhattan outside Rockefeller Center for that long, and decorated and lit for the holiday season. Tonight the official lighting is televised live, along with performances by Tony Bennett, Diana Krall, Martina McBride, John Legend, and others – but the star is the tree, a 72-foot Norway Spruce t
