On this day in 1971, the made-for-TV movie, "Brian’s Song," aired on ABC under its Movie of the Week umbrella...

Over the years, this 1965 animated special, the first to bring Charles M. Schulz’s Peanuts gang to television, has bounced from one network to another, been edited and shortened and then restored – but it’s been shown every year, making it one of the last surviving annual TV holiday and family traditions. As such, please honor it, gather the family, and watch together. And take the opportunity to use it as a teachable moment: Not only to hear Charlie Brown and Linus discuss the

In tonight’s new episode, Sheldon gets upset that he may have been cut out of a small fortune – a fortune in Bitcoin currency, but still… So somehow, this leads to an extended flashback, where Sheldon and the gang rummage through their memories from seven years ago.

Tonight’s new episode features young Sheldon and his clan, all packed into the same family car, taking a road trip. With Sheldon aboard, expect plenty of stops. And detours. And, as when he’s grown into an adult, don’t look for him at the wheel.

In tonight’s new episode, the ship enters a new dimension – one which has unexpected effects on the crew, and sounds very much like a standard, oft-recycled Star Trek plot. Not that there’s anything wrong with that.

SERIES PREMIERE: I’ve been binge-watching this new Amazon series all night – seven episodes in now, and counting – because after seeing the few episodes sent out for preview, I couldn’t wait to see more. And each episode has, indeed, gotten even better than the utterly charming pilot. The opening episode of The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel is created, written and directed by Amy Sherman-Palladino of Gilmore Girls fame, and is a Mad Man era comedy-drama, mostly comedy, that seems

If you’re a faithful viewer of USA’s Suits, you’re already used to seeing a performance that soon might be described, retroactively, as regal. It’s the part of Rachel Zane – which, like the part of Amy Jessup on Fox’s Fringe, has been played by a model and actress named Meghan Markle. Markle is now engaged to Prince Harry, and has announced her intention to quit acting (as did Grace Kelly when becoming Monaco’s Princess Grace) to pursue humanitarian caus

The lighting of the Christmas tree in Rockefeller Center wasn’t always televised – but it’s been shown by NBC enough years now to qualify as an annual TV tradition, albeit one with a lot less wattage with the New Year’s Eve celebrations about a month and a few blocks away. This year’s live one-hour special was scheduled to make room for hosts Matt Lauer, Savannah Guthrie, Hoda Kotb and Al Roker -- but after this morning's stunning announcement about the firing of La

SPECIAL: For his first network TV special, Bruno Mars takes to the streets of New York City, and sets up musical shop in Harlem at the Apollo – where he and his band and backup singers burn through most of the songs on his third and most recent album, 24K Magic.
