Today is the golden anniversary of the premiere of Mister Rogers’ Neighborhood on public television. All manner of tributes are on the way, from film and book biographies and a PBS special to a U.S. Fred Rogers postage stamp (pictured), but even the PBS KIDS network is holding its televised week-long Fred Rogers salute to next week. Today, though, there are a few places you can go to honor one of the best children’s shows, and hosts, in TV history. One is to travel to Latrobe, PA, wh

Technically, tonight’s episode is the season finale – but there’s one more episode to come, next week, which was presented in the U.K. as a standalone Christmas episode, as is their wont over there. Doctor Who is another example of a series that generates a Christmas Day special episode each year of late. Anyway, tonight’s episode has enough drama for a season finale, with a royal child near death, an adult character experiencing death, and more than one romance torn apar

Last week’s season premiere ended with a shocker that basically cast members of our own military as Russian-style assassins, willing and able to use exotic toxic poisons to eliminate political enemies on contact – or with contact. So what happens now, to Carrie and others, if they dare resist this Deep State resistance? Claire Danes stars.

SEASON PREMIERE: Season 5 of John Oliver’s show begins tonight. I expect nothing less than brilliance, and outrage. But, given the news of the week he’s forced to recount and examine, will there be any actual laughs? And if so, how?

Tonight’s installment, no less breathtaking than the ones before it in this fabulous series, is called “Green Seas.” It explores the patches of water where algae and seaweed and living reefs give way to an amazing abundance of life. Watch for sea otters. And moulted crabs. And Technicolor cuttlefish (pictured). And so, so much more…

Unless Bill Maher adjusts his guest list tonight in reaction to Wednesday’s tragic mass school shooting in Florida, his guests tonight – who doubtlessly will be focusing intently on the issue of gun control – include Anna Deavere Smith, Fran Lebowitz, Salman Rushdie, and Vincente Fox, former president of Mexico. So given this week, and that last guest, immigration reform probably will be a hot topic as well...

This final season of Portlandia has been lots of fun, and I’m sure its creators and stars have had lots of fun carrying out one last batch of clever craziness. Take, for example, “Sinkles,” the theme restaurant to make lonely singles feel at home, even when they’re eating out. This theme restaurant doesn’t have tables for one. It has individual working sinks, where diners can stand over to munch morosely on whatever leftovers are brought by the restaurant staffers.

SERIES PREMIERE: SundanceTV’s streaming platform, Sundance Now, presents its first original TV production with this six-episode series, based on a web series called Fridays. Both are created, written by, and star Josh Feldman and Shoshannah Stern – who, like the characters they play, are deaf. In This Close, Stern plays a Hollywood publicist, whose boss (played by Curb Your Enthusiasm co-star Cheryl Hines) barely makes an effort to accommodate her hearing-impaired employee. Feldman p

In tonight’s new Episode 5 of this American Crime Story miniseries, we finally get to spend a little more time with Edgar Ramirez and Penelope Cruz as Gianni and Donatella Versace (pictured). But, as with most of this series, the focus is primarily on flashbacks following Gianni Versace’s killer, Andrew Cunanan, played by Darren Criss. Tonight, Cunanan meets Naval officer Jeffrey Trail, played by Finn Wittrock – who, like Criss, has worked with Assassination of Gianni Versace e

Roseanne: The Complete Series

Roseanne is scheduled to return to ABC for nine episodes in March, 20 years after it went off the air. Most of the original cast is returning, include Roseanne Barr and her television spouse Dan, played by John Goodman, whose character will be revived (along with the show) even though he died in the prior series finale. Roseanne’s chiming chord with the working middle class was the series main draw, making it the most popular sitcom for a time. Producers are betting that, along with its reunion appeal (as with the recent reboot of Will & Grace) will make a success. On sale at Amazon for $25. –Eric Gould
