On his previous TV show, Totally Biased, W. Kamau Bell seemed straightjacketed by the show’s rigorously divided format – but on this first standup special of his, he roams the stage and his subject matter freely. Watch and see. And laugh.

When Donald Trump sits down with Megyn Kelly for her May 17 prime-time special on Fox, it will be interesting to see whether he still calls her “sick” and “crazy.” Those are a couple of the many things he’s called her on Twitter over the last few months...

This new special, recorded at last year’s TCM Film Festival, has international movie star Sophia Loren interviewed in front of an appreciative, film-savvy audience.

Just a note: Garry Marshall, who oversaw the migration of Neil Simon’s Broadway and movie versions of The Odd Couple into a superb TV sitcom version starring Tony Randall and Jack Klugman, guest stars tonight, playing Oscar’s father, Walter.

The between-the-wars German cinema salute continues tonight, with TCM presenting another Wednesday roster of rarely televised movies – beginning at 8 p.m. ET with this 1929 sexy silent classic from director G.W. Pabst. Louise Brooks stars as Lulu, the ultimately amoral temptress (pictured here, gorgeously) who leaves a string of disasters, and destroyed men, in her wake.
