On this day in 1970, television viewers heard the famous signoff, "'Good night, Chet.' 'Good night, David. And good night, for NBC News,'" for the final time, when news anchor Chet Huntley said farewell to his long-time co-anchor David Brinkley...

Romcom alert! Romcom alert! At a time when you’re more likely to find a silent film than a good romantic comedy at the movies, Hulu has stepped into the void with Four Weddings and a Funeral...

SERIES PREMIERE: This 10-episode series, created by Mindy Kaling, is structurally similar to Noah Hawley’s FX series Fargo: It takes its inspiration from a 1990s movie, but takes only the spirit, creating its own plots and characters while using the film’s familiar title. This Hulu version of Four Weddings and a Funeral – again, like TV’s Fargo, neither a sequel nor a remake – starts in New York, where an American political operative na

Last night’s debate had the potential candidates with the highest poll rankings on the stage that night, Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren, fighting with other candidates instead of each other, and both emerged victoriously as a result. Tonight, the overall leading candidate, Joe Biden, has the center stage. Flanking him on either side: Kamala Harris, who upped her own profile by challenging him the last time, along with Cory Booker, Julian Castro, Kirsten Gillibrand, and Bill de Blasio.

SEASON FINALE: This delightful, playful series is saying goodbye by presenting a double feature of its final two episodes. And since over-the-top telenovela twists and turns have been an integral part of Jane the Virgin from the start, expect major helpings of that as the series reaches the end.

SERIES PREMIERE: Okay, this show is really, really weird. Which I mean, of course, as a compliment. It’s a bit like another IFC meta series, Documentary Showcase, which claims to be a long-standing TV series and presents closely designed parodies of actual nonfiction films. Sherman’s Showcase does that for a Soul Train type variety and dance show, but also takes an SCTV approach, expanding its parody approach to includes commercials,

TCM is busy concluding its “Out of This World” sci-fi month, but BBC America is not to be left behind on the launch pad. Tonight at 8 ET, it presents a comedy that manages to spoof the entire Star Trek canon and fandom, while itself becoming a strong space-voyage action film. (And this 1999 movie also should get credit for using the same time-shift plot device as some of today’s most popular Marvel Universe franchises, on TV as well as film.

This is the second set of two-night debates featuring Democratic candidates jockeying for position in the 2020 presidential race. Tonight’s debate, and tomorrow’s, are presented by CNN. Luck of the draw dictates which candidates debate on which evening – and tonight’s finalized lineup includes, for the first time in this campaign cycle, both Elizabeth Warren and Bernie Sanders. Pete Buttigieg, Amy Klobuchar and Beto O’Rourke also appear tonight, while current frontr
