We had a chance to sample the (amazing) specialty popcorn from GH Cretors – try their Buffalo Ranch and you’ll never go back to microwave popcorn again!  And since you’re tuning into the game-changing THIS IS US episode

Wednesday Must Watch: SCHITT’S CREEK returns!

I first watched SCHITT’S CREEK because I will always watch Eugene Levy and Catherine O’Hara when they’re working together.  I’d watch them read a phone book, because, let’s be real, they’re geniuses.  I immediately fell in love with the show and the rest of the cast, who are all doing hilarious and incredible work. As soon as the Season 3 Finale ended, after I dried my eyes and watched it 7 more times, I started counting down the minutes until

My Take On….BASKETS Season 3 on FX

Chip, Dale, and Christine are back and as funny as they’ve ever been when BASKETS returns to FX at 10/9c. After a brilliant second season that explored the evolution of Christine (Emmy winner Louie Anderson), BASKETS returns tonight with a third season premiere that continues telling the story of the Baskets Family Rodeo.  The impulse purchase is really coming along, as Chip, Dale, and Christine work together (not well, let’s be real; Chip and Dale are a mess) to get

Ashley Gerasimovich previews THE DETOUR’s return

TBS’ amazing family comedy THE DETOUR returns to the network tonight (at 10:30/9:30c) for Season 3, which finds the Parkers (Nate (Jason Jones), Robin (Natalie Zea), Delilah (Ashley Gerasimovich), and Jareb, err, Jared (Liam Carroll)) settling down in Alaska after some time on the lam. Nothing really seems to go their way, especially not with USPIS agent Edie Randall (Laura Benanti) on their tail.  Their adventure kicks off exactly how you’d imagine it (read: it doesn’t go so well) and

Alex Høgh Andersen on what’s coming up for Ivar on VIKINGS

Following a season that found the Ragnar’s sons coming together with a common goal that ended with Sigurd’s brutal murder at the hands of his own brother, VIKINGS has started S5 with the pedal to the metal with no indication of letting up.  The show feels fresh and exciting, and it sounds like the best may be yet to come! Ahead of tonight’s all new episode, called “The Plan,” I spent some time catching up with Ivar the Boneless himself,

From the Set: THE MIDDLE hits 200!

THE MIDDLE has quietly had one of the best runs of any comedy series of the modern era: always funny, always relatable, and one of my favorite shows on TV.  Now in their 9th and final season (Eden Sher promises “we decided it!”), the series has hit another milestone – 200(+) episodes. Episode 200, aptly named “The 200th,” celebrates Orson’s late achievement: they were selected as one of the top 200 cities in Indiana – number 200, to be exact!
