The story of Gloria Steinem’s infiltration of the Playboy Club to write a magazine article exposé  is one of the drunken tales related in this new episode. Tonight’s topic on Drunk History: sex. And for those who say the two don’t mix, perhaps they haven’t been doing it right. (If memory serves…)

SERIES PREMIERE: When Donald Trump announced his intention to run as a presidential candidate in June 2015, Stephen Colbert was on hiatus, having concluded his Colbert Report at the end of the previous year, and three months away from the premiere of his Late Show on CBS. He said then that he regretted the timing, and was worried that the entire Trump candidacy would come and go before Colbert had a platform on which to have fun with it. The rest, of course, is history. Colbert not only has lamp

The characters from this show’s alternate dimensions have begun to meet one another. It started with J.K. Simmons’ meek government worker coming face to face with his deadly counterpart from the other place. More recently, an assassin from that same other dimension crossed to this world and was arrested after her double here, a virtuoso violinist, was murdered. And last week, that assassin met both of Simmons’ doppelgängers, and much preferred the meeker version. This week

SERIES PREMIERE: This 10-episode drama series comes from Alan Ball, of both American Beauty and True Blood fame, but despite an exciting cast, Here and Now starts off a lot less enjoyable than either of those. Tim Robbins stars as Greg Boatwright, an academic and once-acclaimed author going through all the motions of a midlife crisis – but at the overdue age of 60. His wife, played by Holly Hunter, is an undiluted, undeterred liberal, and they have combined to raise a family, mostly throug

SEASON FINALE: The first season of the biggest draw on the CBS Access streaming site comes to an end tonight, with a cliffhanger designed to get people talking. But how many, because who’s watching? And when? Time will tell – and pretty quickly, too.

The second installment of this new talk show from David Letterman arrives today on Netflix. The guest this time is George Clooney, who talks family as well as film, and even gets to discuss his passion for certain global issues and news events. Oh, and he and Letterman also demonstrate some good taste, in both jokes and fast food: In an on-location capper filmed outside an In-N-Out Burger in Los Angeles, Clooney and Letterman munch on fries and burgers while Letterman ends the show by telling Cl

SERIES PREMIERE: Queer Eye for the Straight Guy was a Bravo series than ran from 2003 to 2007. When it began, it was a breath of fresh TV air: Even in that early era of reality TV and makeover shows, it was a decidedly and unusually warm-hearted series, with more heart than heat. That made it different from the Gordon Ramsay model, and also came at a time when the show’s very premise – five gay guys advising straight men on fashion, cooking, grooming, decorating and other lifestyle f

Tonight’s new episode is called “Kitten,” and asks whether the original X-Files duo, Scully and Mulder, should continue to trust Skinner, their original FBI boss and champion. Perhaps the truth is in here – but I wouldn’t count on it being the final word.

The stock market takes a one-day major dive.  President Trump’s attorneys advice him not to testify before investigator Robert Mueller. The Philadelphia Eagles beat the New England Patriots in the Super Bowl. What will Samantha Bee tackle first? And most emotionally?

SPECIAL PREMIERE: With Portlandia in its final season, former Saturday Night Live regular Fred Armisen is about to be a free-range chicken again, roaming among various projects. And why not start with this one? After all, it does something neither Portlandia nor SNL allowed the chameleonic comic to do: to stand on stage, without hiding behind wigs and costumes and characters, to make observations and jokes, and be funny on his own terms, as himself. And behind his own drum kit, which, for a stan

Roseanne: The Complete Series

Roseanne is scheduled to return to ABC for nine episodes in March, 20 years after it went off the air. Most of the original cast is returning, include Roseanne Barr and her television spouse Dan, played by John Goodman, whose character will be revived (along with the show) even though he died in the prior series finale. Roseanne’s chiming chord with the working middle class was the series main draw, making it the most popular sitcom for a time. Producers are betting that, along with its reunion appeal (as with the recent reboot of Will & Grace) will make a success. On sale at Amazon for $25. –Eric Gould
