James Stewart continues as TCM’s Star of the Month, kicking off tonight’s prime time salute with 1954’s biopic in which he played bandleader Glenn Miller. It’s an entertaining little movie… if you’re In the Mood. Other Stewart films that follow include 1950’s Harvey (10:15 p.m. ET), 1958’s Bell, Book and Candle (12:15 a.m. ET), and 1954’s Rear Window (2:15 a.m. ET).

I don’t care what more modern sketches they show in these annual holiday specials – so long as, each Thanksgiving, they remember to include Paul Simon, dressed in a turkey suit, opening an episode of Saturday Night Live singing “Still Crazy after All These Years.” More than 40 years later, it still makes me laugh.

The sides are closing in, and people seem to be changing sides, as the giant conspiracy planned by the villains comes closer to fruition – and closer to being foiled, too. Perhaps.

If Republicans and Democrats could get along half as well as the multiple dramatic genres mashed up in Marvel’s Runaways, we’d have bipartisan heaven...

SERIES PREMIERE: The first three episodes of Season 1 are available to stream today on Hulu, as the service adds to the constellation of TV dramas from the Marvel Universe. Like several others, most specifically Fox’s The Gifted, this new series is, in part, about young teens just discovering and coming to terms with their paranormal powers.

After the success of the original Westworld movie, which also inspired the current HBO reimagining, the AIP studio followed up with a 1976 sequel. The connecting link was Yul Brynner, reprising his role as the robot gunslinger – but this time, his adversaries were new park visitors played by Peter Fonda and Blythe Danner. Most memorable were the dream sequences, in which Danner’s character fantasized about the gunslinger – as Fonda’s character watched on a computerized &l

Tonight’s episode is called “Number Two,” and is devoted to another of the three siblings…. And, as was mentioned in the promos, a medical mishap. After tonight, it’ll be two down, one to go, in this interconnected ratings sweeps month story line.

The two episodes of Damnation thus far have been strong on establishing characters and their very intense conflicts. So far, it’s been interesting enough to stay with – but this is the point where it either gets more involving or less believable.
