HBO has timed it so that its Sunday series are taking a break – but Showtime is soldiering on through the holiday pre-season, with fresh episodes tonight of all three of its Sunday shows. First up: another episode of Ray Donovan that simultaneously explores past and present, dramatizing not only Ray’s current problems, but more details about a key event many decades ago.

SERIES FINALE: Rami Malek, after winning an Oscar for playing Freddie Mercury in Bohemian Rhapsody, completes his obligation to the USA drama series that launched him, by starring in tonight’s two-hour series finale of Mr. Robot. Last week’s episode ended with what looked like wide-scale thermonuclear annihilation – but this series, like Legion, Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. and Watchmen, has begun dealing in so many alternate rea

"Shane! Come back, Shane!" And she has...

It's time for a mid-course correction. When the season started, I picked NBC's Perfect Harmony as the best new situation comedy...but it's no match for my new No. 1 – CBS' Bob (Hearts) Abishola

Don’t miss this. The guest host, for this final fresh SNL of 2019, is Eddie Murphy, who used to be a series repertory company member from 1980-84. Later that same year, after he left to do movies after almost singlehandedly saving the Saturday Night Live franchise, he returned, victoriously, as guest host. Once. In December 1984. And that’s it. Murphy has stayed away from the show ever since, except for showing up for the program’s 40th anniversary prim
