Grumpy Cat’s Worst Christmas Ever

dvr this Lifetime, Saturday, Nov. 29, 8 p.m. The “Internet sensation” known as Grumpy Cat – named so because it’s a cat that always looks grumpy – has been monetized into a Lifetime Christmas movie. This sounds awful and absurd, but it’s also potentially rather funny, since the cat is voiced by the hilariously deadpan [...]

Getting On

dvr this HBO, Sunday, Nov. 23, 10:30 p.m. For some reason, Getting On, the genius half-hour comedy about an enormously dysfunctional geriatric unit of a Long Beach hospital, is barely on anyone’s radar. Put it on yours. Nurse Dawn (Alex Borstein) is meek, desperately lonely, and competent; Nurse Didi (Reno 911’s Niecy Nash) is loud-mouthed [...]

Aaliyah: The Princess of R&B

dvr this Lifetime, Saturday, Nov. 15, 8 p.m. I always hope that Lifetime’s celebrity biopics will be good or so bad they’re good, but they usually fall between the two. This week’s entry is two hours about the short life of ‘90s R&B star Aaliyah, who sold a few million records before dying in a [...]

Saturday Night Live

dvr this NBC, Saturday, Nov. 1, 11:30 a.m. – 1 a.m. Chris Rock hosts and Prince is the musical guest. Rock can be a comic genius, and his presence will hopefully inspire the erratic SNL writers to give us one of those now rare great shows. Prince is on a roll, putting out two critically [...]

American Horror Story: Freak Show

Jessica Lange in American Horror Story

dvr this FX, Wednesdays, 10 p.m. Ryan Murphy’s ridiculous anthology series is back, this time with his stars working at a side show in 1950s rural Florida. There are little people, a guy with lobster hands, a chanteuse and Siamese twins. There’s also a murderous clown. It’s violent, disgusting, campy and occasionally sublime. Jessica Lange [...]

How to Get Away with Murder

dvr this ABC, Thursdays, 10 p.m. Shonda Rhimes’ new show is more Scandal than Gray’s Anatomy, and that’s perfect fine with me. Led by two-time Oscar nominee Viola Davis as a brilliant, cynical and sexy law professor, the show revolves around her cases and her students who help her win them. Everyone is morally and [...]

The Blacklist

James Spader in The Blacklist

The Blacklist was one of network television’s few breakout hits last year, and after I caught up on it this summer, I realized why. It’s James Spader, playing Raymond “Red” Reddington, a murderous criminal mastermind who decides to help the FBI catch the world’s worst criminals. When he is not spitting out campy insults at [...]


dvr this FOX, Mondays at 8 p.m. One of the most hyped and best new TV shows of the fall, Gotham is a series that serves as an origin story to the world of Batman. It’s focused on young Detective Jim Gordon, the future police commissioner and Batman’s closest compadre. Gordon is played by fierce [...]

Keep the Lights On

On Netflix Ira Sachs’s last movie was a critical darling but barely released. It’s a shame because it’s a beautifully shot, extremely sexy, but difficult love story. Erik (Thure Lindhardt) is a dilettante filmmaker who spends a lot of time having sex with guys he meets on phone sex lines, and Paul (Zachary Booth) is [...]

True Blood

dvr this HBO, Sunday, Aug. 24, 10 p.m. The series finale of the HBO hit comedic drama about a small Louisiana town, its vampires and the folks who love and hate them is finally here. All season, the writers have been wrapping up loose ends, pairing off lovelorn characters and settling old scores. Tara (Rutina [...]
