According to the promos, tonight we finally return to the storyline of Negan, last seen temporarily trapped inside the cab of a truck, but not likely to stay in there for long.

Has Frank found religion, and a job, and the straight and narrow path? My guess is that, eventually, he’ll stray from all three – but meanwhile, his family has an understandably difficult time trying to reconcile, and deal with, the “new” Frank Gallagher.

This return season of Curb has been a triumph for Larry David – each episode introduces wildly funny new conflicts, ideas and “rules.” This week’s rule may be embedded in the episode’s title: “Never Wait for Seconds!” And it continues the unexpected but very welcome addition of guest star Lauren Graham, as Larry’s latest romantic interest – a single mother with a son on the autism spectrum. It sounds like a dicey area for comedy, but already,

It’s a clash of powerful forces tonight, as one character begins to learn the extent of her mystical powers. But is it too little, too late? Or just in time? And on this show, what does time mean anyway? If you haven’t been watching, I don’t have the time to explain…

Tonight’s scheduled guests include Hugh Grant, whose appearance on Jay Leno’s The Tonight Show was one of the most famous, and infamous, talk-show moments in TV history. They also include Kelly Clarkson, whose past contains much less controversy – and who just completed a nice stint as guest advisor on NBC’s The Voice.

Tonight’s guest host and musical guests are both musical, and both from the same genre of music. The host is Chance the Rapper, and the musical guest, by chance, is Eminem.

SERIES PREMIERE: The latest Marvel series to appear on Netflix has gotten a head-start: Jon Bernthal, who plays this particular brutal and haunted antihero, first portrayed the Punisher in a season of Netflix’s Daredevil, occupying the major story line as a former soldier seeking revenge for the mob-related deaths of his family. This new spinoff, therefore, doesn’t have to spend a lot of time establishing the superhero’s origin story – good thing, because the Punisher, te

Last week, Crazy Ex-Girlfriend got lots of comedy out of Rebecca (Rachel Bloom) retreating from her woes by going home to mother – who, played by Tovah Feldshuh, was unusually supportive. Unusually and, as it turned out, deceptively, by slipping Rebecca mood-altering drugs without Rebecca’s knowledge. Rebecca found and stole the pills, left her mother, and, on the plane back home, swallowed them all in a suicide attempt before informing the flight attendant. Then, at episode’s

SEASON FINALE: Chelsea Handler. Max Brooks. Rebecca Traister. Bill McKibben. Carl Bernstein. This is Bill Maher’s last show of the season, and it sure sounds like he intends to go out not with a whimper… but with a bang. The week’s top headlines, from tax bills to Al Franken, should provide all the fuel he needs for a big verbal bonfire.

Last week’s special episode of Mr. Robot got a lot of attention because it was filmed to give the illusion that the entire episode was one unbroken take, filmed by a single camera. It wasn’t, but the trick was a good one, and a nice nod to Birdman. But for me, the biggest surprise with last week’s show was the music that opened it, in the elevator scene. It was a haunting, truly strange track from Philip Glass’ Einstein on the Beach opera – and a piece of music I ne

The Dana Carvey Show

The new Hulu documentary about SNL veteran Dana Carvey’s failed 1996 ABC sketch comedy show is now available. Too Funny to Fail recounts how the iconoclastic series, cancelled after seven episodes, got off to a horrendous start with advertisers, after a sketch with Carvey as then-President Bill Clinton, eager to demonstrate his compassion, suckled a baby, puppies and a kitten simultaneously from canine-like array of prosthetic nipples. Carvey’s edgier side turned out to be somewhat ill-suited for prime time, and the show lost six million viewers before the premiere episode ended. The show is now considered a milestone however for it’s now A-list stable of performers and writers: Louis CK, Steve Carell, Stephen Colbert and Robert Smigel. Includes the final unaired eighth episode and deleted scenes. On sale at Amazon for $18. –Eric Gould
