SEASON FINALE: Last week’s episode left Luther (Idris Elba), and especially the people Luther cared about, in a horribly precarious situation – with Benny, Mark and Alice held at gunpoint, threatened with imminent death, and with Luther too far away to do anything but beg by phone, pleading for their lives. What happened to close last week’s episode was shocking – and whatever follows tonight, in the opening minutes of this season finale, will propel whatever occurs in th

There are going to be tons of TV specials as we land on the actual golden anniversary of the day Neil Armstrong set foot on the moon as part of the Apollo 11 mission in July 1969. But tonight, CNN embarks a little early, getting a head start and presenting a new documentary with what it claims is “newly discovered cinematic footage.” I guess CNN could have called it “newly unearthed,” but that seems technically inaccurate. And “newly unmooned” – well, th

Season 1 of Big Little Lies was all about discovering the secret – which, at the literal end of the miniseries, turned out to be who was killed, how the killing took place, and the identity of the killer. When David E. Kelley’s story adaptation proved so popular that it generated an order for a sequel, and the miniseries became a series, this new Season 2 has been all about those big little lies leaking out. And leaking, at first, from the mouths of babes. But now, the secr

Last week’s series premiere of City on a Hill spent most of its time showing how such disparate characters as a crooked white FBI agent in Boston and a newly arrived crusading African-American district attorney (played, respectively, by Kevin Bacon and Aldis Hodge), could team up to solve a politically volatile murder and robbery case. In tonight’s episode, the show, and the characters, get down to business. This opens up City on a Hill to other actors as well, in

I said this last week about Last Week Tonight, and it still applies: Neither John Oliver nor his show has let me down yet… which is a lot more than I can say about the current events he summarizes and satirizes.

CNN is repeating this documentary series tonight – many more hours than the network usually does, so it’s a convenient place to stock up on your 50-year-old memories. My favorite, from the opening episode (which is all about television of that decade), is the segment focusing on the Smothers Brothers. I’m not in that segment, if I recall correctly, but I am in other segments of the TV episode of The Sixties. And after all, isn’t not recalling correctly part of the appeal

As science geeks turned heroic S.H.I.E.L.D. agents, Fitz and Jemma (Iain De Caestecker, Elizabeth Henstridge) have fallen in love, sworn to be together forever, then barely been together at all since, as their respective fates have thrown them into alternate universes and timelines. At the climax of last week’s show, they finally were about to be reunited – but as prisoners of aliens aboard a hostile spaceship. This week, the long-separated duo finally gets to share the screen &ndash

Last week’s series premiere of Jett had Carla Gugino, as former master thief Daisy “Jett” Kowalski, pulled back into a life of crime by a criminal mastermind – played by Giancarlo Esposito, who’s already proven his criminal-mastermind chops by starring on Breaking Bad and Better Call Saul as Gus Fring. In Jett, he dispatches Jett to steal a diamond ring in the safe of another crime boss – which she accomplishes, with help from an accomplice. But at the very en

Bill Maher headlined his first show for HBO 30 years ago, in 1989. Then came his 1993 Comedy Central series Politically Incorrect, which moved to ABC late-night four years later. Until 2001, that is, when Maher made a post-9/11 remark that ABC considered so politically incorrect, the network fired him the following year. But the year after that, Maher was hired by HBO, where Real Time has been presented ever since. And tonight, he and his guests get to opine, comically and otherwise, on the

James Corden just finished a strong week of shows broadcast from his former home town of London, where one of his show’s regular features, put on prime display, was his practice of bringing out each night’s celebrity guests at the same time, seated on the same couch and forced to both interact and listen. Tonight, you can watch the long-running U.K. talk show from which Corden cribbed the idea: The Graham Norton Show. Corden was a guest on that show in 2014, sitting on the same couch
