Tonight’s episode is called “Death of a Car Salesman,” and you can guess what sort of brain, and personality, Liv is absorbing tonight…a real hard-sell type.

A new episode of The Handmaid’s Tale appears on Hulu today – and Serena, each week this season, has revealed herself as a little bit less redeemable. It’s a trend that you shouldn’t expect to be overturned this week.

So far, in this year’s London visit, James Corden is 2 for 2. Monday, he had Michelle Obama stealing the show as an aggressive, taunting dodgeball captain. And last night, he and Chris Hemsworth played dueling waiters, trying to prove which of them could give better service as a posh London restaurant. Spoiler Alert: Hemsworth won, handily. When he takes you to your table, he really takes you to your table…

SEASON PREMIERE: One of the guest stars in tonight’s Season 6 opener of this goofy yet entertaining Comedy Central series is Colin Hanks, who portrays the oddball amateur aviator known as Lawnchair Larry. The real L.L., in 1982, attached 40 weather balloons to a lawn chair, sat in it holding a pellet gun and a sandwich, and went aloft outside of Los Angeles. Hanks has been on Drunk History before, playing iconic children’s TV host Fred Rogers. He did that, by the way, before his fath

SERIES PREMIERE: Well, it’s the series premiere on CBS, anyway. This series, an excellent spinoff of the also excellent CBS series The Good Wife, began not on the CBS broadcast network, but on its streaming sister site CBS All Access, which also offers new iterations of Star Trek and The Twilight Zone. But you have to pay for them – while, if you wait long enough, apparently, you might get them for free via CBS, as with tonight’s first two episodes of Season 1 of The Good Fight

SEASON PREMIERE: Stana Katic returns for Season 2 of this moody character drama, which has her portraying a woman still haunted by memories of her time being held captive, chained and abused by a sadistic kidnapper. Imagine The Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt, then erase the laughs…And starting today, the misery continues, with a second season of psychological sadness.

SERIES PREMIERE: This new crime series – and that’s hardly its only genre description, since its tone and content are so weird – is from Nicholas Winding Refn, who takes for apparent inspiration pieces from David Lynch and Quentin Tarantino, but removes all the music and most of the quirky characters. The pace is so deliberately slow, it makes Michelangelo Antonioni’s movies seem like they’re on fast-forward, and Refn, the Danish filmmaker who also directed The Neon

SEASON PREMIERE: This is the third and final season for Jessica Jones, which was, and remains, the best Marvel TV series based on one of the comic giant’s characters. The first season had Jessica (Krysten Ritter), a private detective imbued with supernatural strength and agility, battling two demons: her alcoholism, and the mind-controlling bad guy who captured and manipulated her as his unwilling plaything before she escaped and vowed revenge. David Tennant played that villain, and was a

SEASON PREMIERE: Season 4 begins with an episode called “Cat People” – which has nothing to do with the familiar movie premise. Well, not much. But it does feature its share of cats, and homes, and why Chip is planning to leave his… home,  that is.

MUSIC DOCUMENTARY PREMIERE: In 1974, the then-reclusive Bob Dylan embarked on a comeback reunion tour of sorts, joining with his “Basement Tapes” cohorts The Band on a high-intensity, high-volume national tour. I saw one leg of that tour, at a January 1974 concert in the Everglades in Hollywood, FL. The following year, Dylan gathered a new set of cohorts, and began what he called the Rolling Thunder Revue. At first, it was an ad hoc adventure on a rather small scale, then morphed int
