MINISERIES PREMIERE: In the well-known Lovin’ Spoonful song “Nashville Cats,” songwriter and lead singer John Sebastian sang about all the great guitar pickers in that city, and all the great music emanating from there. He also sang about falling in love with the dynamic new rockabilly, country, and rock and roll songs played on the radio in the early 1950s, and noting that the disc jockey informed him that “Every one is a Yellow Sun record from Nashville.” Well, ei

Tonight’s episode in this well-researched, clip-laden documentary miniseries is called “Comedy in Real Life,” and focuses on the minute observations that comics make about real life – the “Did you ever notice…?” observations that might as well be called Seinfeldian.

Vice News has a new video out documenting the case that nobody draws bigger crowds, builds walls, understands debt, and 21 other things better than the President. And there is no clip stringing together all the claims better than this...

This Nature miniseries is a couple of different programs in one. One program is about the creatures in their natural habitats, interacting with the realistic-looking animatronic “spies” created by scientists to interact with them, and sometimes record their actions. The other program is about the “spies,” and their human creators, themselves. In both cases, they’re really wild. Check local listings.

This third episode of Noah Hawley’s newest TV series is the last one FX sent for preview – and the first one that really displays a fuller range of David’s still-mysterious abilities. Dan Stevens plays David – and this series, as slowly and cleverly as it reveals its many layers, is absolutely must-see television. Even if what you see isn’t immediately easy to understand…

This series has done its best work this season, by adding Katie Findlay as Lucy, the steady girlfriend of Jay Baruchel’s otherwise unlucky-in-love Josh. As their romance has escalated, so has the comedy – and tonight, now that they’ve decided to get married, the humor threatens to explode, literally, as the young couple set out to inform their respective parents. No show on television deals with funnier, more physically embodied metaphors than Man Seeking Women. For Josh’

No one needs and feeds off the “enemy of the American People” more than the man who designated certain TV networks and a newspaper as such. And in fairness, they may need him even more...

SERIES PREMIERE: How many iterations of the same crime drama series idea will we be able to see? The answer, apparently, is: at least three. First there was the Danish-Swedish co-production called The Bridge, which was imported after FX presented its own adaptation with the same name. Both shows began with a dead body found on the border between two different jurisdictions – a body that, memorably and horrifyingly, actually was a gruesome connection of two bodies, severed at the waist and
