SEASON FINALE: The guest for David Letterman’s sixth and final monthly talk show of the season is a person with whom Letterman first conversed on TV in 1984 (a brief clip confirms it). That guest is Howard Stern, and their conversation tonight is as freewheeling and fascinating as any of the best chats on Stern’s SiriusXM satellite radio – including the part when they talk about satellite radio. It’s no secret that many folks at NPR’s Fresh Air with Terry Gross are

This special prime-time edition of Jimmy Kimmel Live! is indeed live, but it has a very specific purpose, which is to set up, and kick off, the evening of ABC’s coverage of the 2018 NBA Finals. Expect: sports jokes, a monologue on current events, and celebrity guests. Do not expect: Roseanne Barr.

Thursday nights in May, on TCM this month, belong to Marlene Dietrich, and tonight’s lineup, ending the month, has some late-career must-see films. In prime time, there are two classics. At 8 p.m. ET, it’s the restored and expanded version of Orson Welles’ 1958 film A Touch of Evil (pictured), with that masterful opening shot. And at 10 p.m. ET, it’s 1957’s Witness for the Prosecution, with Dietrich’s masterful climactic scene. Watch them both.

Rob Marshall’s energetic, whipsaw-paced 2002 movie version of the long-running musical Chicago is a provocative examination of fame, betrayal, and the cynical manipulations of the media, politicians, and lawyers. In 2018, it’s almost a song-by-song primer, preparing us for the evening news. And with Renee Zellweger as headline-grabbing murderess Roxie Hart, competing for media attention and juror sympathy with Catherine Zeta-Jones’ equally deadly Velma Kelly, this Chicago is pa

SERIES PREMIERE: The good news: This new sci-fi summer series stars Sarah Shahi, the Person of Interest co-star who’s been an impressive but underrated TV player ever since playing Carmen in The L Word and starring opposite Damian Lewis in 2002’s Life. The bad news: This new series comes from Mickey Fisher, whose last broadcast network summer series was CBS’s senseless Extant. And this new one, Reverie, stars Shahi as a woman who ventures into the artificial realities of others
