In tonight’s episode, Bernadette and Wolowitz encounter some frustrating red tape, but get some help navigating around it from an unlikely source: Sheldon.

In last week’s episode of Gotham, Selina had come back from the almost dead to exact revenge on Jeremiah, stabbing him several times in the chest in what certainly looked like a series of mortal wounds. Promos for tonight’s new episode show a funeral, with Jeremiah in a casket – which is puzzling, because Jeremiah was presumed to be the character who evolved, or devolved, into the Joker. And who best can solve this puzzle? My vote would go to Ed Nygma, who’s fast turning

SERIES RETURN: Will & Grace is back from its winter break, which is good news for the show’s fans – but bad news for fans of The Good Place, because its time slot is the one Will & Grace will be occupying. But The Good Place has been renewed for next season already, so I guess it’s all good news after all.

The title, you know. The current version, with Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper, you’ll be hearing about, or at least hearing the music from, at this year’s Oscars. The version with Barbra Streisand and Kris Kristofferson, sure, you know that, too. And it’s a good bet you’re familiar with the most famous version of this fame-is-fickle fable, starring Judy Garland and James Mason. But tonight, TCM serves up the rarely televised 1937 original A Star Is Born film, which predated

...The Beatles went up to the roof to play. Yes, children, hard to believe, but it was that long ago (January 30, 1969) when they gave their final, albeit impromptu, performance in London...

Reality show competition series are funny gambles. If they catch on quickly, like ABC’s Who Wants to Be a Millionaire and Fox’s American Idol and NBC’s The Voice, they can change the fortunes of an entire network – and you can take that word, “fortunes,” both figuratively and literally. Well, it looks like The Masked Singer, an American version of the South Korean singing competition series, has done just that for Fox, quickly becoming the most popular new sho

This PBS documentary series, charting the rise and fall of various dictators around the world, gets more informative, and unsettling, as it goes on. That’s because these dictators, regardless of their eras and cultures, all seem to make the same moves, stoke the same fears, and suppress the same elements of opposition. Tonight’s subject: Manuel Noriega. Check local listings.

Tonight was supposed to be the State of the Union Address for 2019, delivered by President Donald Trump from the hallowed chamber of the House of Representatives. But no. For reasons you know already, that address has been postponed – latest news has it rescheduled, thanks to a joint agreement by Trump and House speaker Nancy Pelosi, for a week from tonight. But since the networks had cleared their prime-time decks tonight for coverage of the address and reactions to it, the last-second re

This Sunday, the New England Patriots face the Los Angeles Rams in Super Bowl LIII. Tonight, the players and analysts at Inside the NFL preview the game – and spend a lot of time, surely, on the already infamous non-call in the fourth quarter of the Rams’ NFC championship game against the New Orleans Saints. Rams cornerback Nickell Robey-Coleman dove into Saints receiver Tommylee Lewis near the end of regulation play, while Lewis was in the end zone awaiting what would have been a go

Switching sports, tonight’s Drunk History goes from football to baseball, with topics that include the “Black Sox” World Series scandal of 1919 (which, enveloping such players as “Shoeless” Joe Jackson, is 100 years old this year!) and the team of female ballplayers who inspired the movie A League of Their Own.
