What to Watch on IFC: November 22 – November 28 (photo)

Posted by on

It’s the end of November, which means we are all counting down the days and hours until Thanksgiving, or as we call it around the office Elastic Waistband Day. Thankfully, we have a lot of great television to help you wile away the hours until your plate is filled with turkey (or tofurkey, no judgment), potatoes, cranberries, and pumpkin pie. All washed down, of course, with copious amounts of ThunderMuscle. What? Nothing says Thanksgiving like energy drinks. It’s what the pilgrims used to row here from England on the Mayflower.

Before you leave for your trip over the river and through the woods to grandmother’s house, while you overeat, and during digestion, here’s what to watch on IFC:


What will you be watching on Monday? Undeclared, of course. IFC’s Matt Singer and his off-screen sidekick Will, host our weekly Watch It Live. Tune in tonight to discuss Lloyd (Charlie Hunnam) and his sex life. Or, you know, Steven and the couch. Tune in to IFC Live at 11 p.m. ET.


Award-winning British R & B artist, Craig David, stops by 360 Sessions on 9:30 p.m. ET. David plays an exclusive set of songs from his new album and talks about his life at university, his home in Hampstead, and, of course his music. Here’s his track “Insomnia” to get you in the mood:


It’s the busiest travel day of the year, so stay away from planes, trains, and automobiles and watch the Kids in the Hall. To get you in the holiday spirit, we’re showing their mini-series Death Comes to Town beginning at 4:35 p.m. ET.


Happy Thanksgiving. Avoid your family by watching IFC all day. The pilgrims would want you to. We have Calendar Girls at 2:35 p.m. ET. (Is that the right feel-good Brit pic for you? Find out.) Heathers at 8:25 p.m. ET and Thank You For Smoking at 11 p.m. ET. You can thank us later.


Nothing says Black Friday like Hollywood hookers. Put down the credit cards and unwind from all those bargains with a plate of leftovers and Vice Squad at 8 p.m. ET.


Tired of your relatives yet? Turn on Hostel tonight at 9:45 p.m. ET and just, you know, day dream.


We have back-to-back episodes of Undeclared starting at 1: 15 p.m. ET and running all day. Don’t forget to keep an eye out for special guest stars.

Millennial Wisdom

Charles Speaks For Us All

Get to know Charles, the social media whiz of Brockmire.

Posted by on

He may be an unlikely radio producer Brockmire, but Charles is #1 when it comes to delivering quips that tie a nice little bow on the absurdity of any given situation.

Charles also perfectly captures the jaded outlook of Millennials. Or at least Millennials as mythologized by marketers and news idiots. You know who you are.

Played superbly by Tyrel Jackson Williams, Charles’s quippy nuggets target just about any subject matter, from entry-level jobs in social media (“I plan on getting some experience here, then moving to New York to finally start my life.”) to the ramifications of fictional celebrity hookups (“Drake and Taylor Swift are dating! Albums y’all!”). But where he really nails the whole Millennial POV thing is when he comments on America’s second favorite past-time after type II diabetes: baseball.

Here are a few pearls.

On Baseball’s Lasting Cultural Relevance

“Baseball’s one of those old-timey things you don’t need anymore. Like cursive. Or email.”

On The Dramatic Value Of Double-Headers

“The only thing dumber than playing two boring-ass baseball games in one day is putting a two-hour delay between the boring-ass games.”

On Sartorial Tradition

“Is dressing badly just a thing for baseball, because that would explain his jacket.”

On Baseball, In A Nutshell

“Baseball is a f-cked up sport, and I want you to know it.”

Learn more about Charles in the behind-the-scenes video below.

And if you were born before the late ’80s and want to know what the kids think about Baseball, watch Brockmire Wednesdays at 10P on IFC.

Crown Jules

Amanda Peet FTW on Brockmire

Amanda Peet brings it on Brockmire Wednesday at 10P on IFC.

On Brockmire, Jules is the unexpected yin to Jim Brockmire’s yang. Which is saying a lot, because Brockmire’s yang is way out there. Played by Amanda Peet, Jules is hard-drinking, truth-spewing, baseball-loving…everything Brockmire is, and perhaps what he never expected to encounter in another human.

“We’re the same level of functional alcoholic.”

But Jules takes that commonality and transforms it into something special: a new beginning. A new beginning for failing minor league baseball team “The Frackers”, who suddenly about-face into a winning streak; and a new beginning for Brockmire, whose life gets a jumpstart when Jules lures him back to baseball. As for herself, her unexpected connection with Brockmire gives her own life a surprising and much needed goose.

“You’re a Goddamn Disaster and you’re starting To look good to me.”

This palpable dynamic adds depth and complexity to the narrative and pushes the series far beyond expected comedy. See for yourself in this behind-the-scenes video (and brace yourself for a unforgettable description of Brockmire’s genitals)…

Want more about Amanda Peet? She’s all over the place, and has even penned a recent self-reflective piece in the New York Times.

And of course you can watch the Jim-Jules relationship hysterically unfold in new episodes of Brockmire, every Wednesday at 10PM on IFC.

Draught Pick

Sam Adams “Keeps It Brockmire”

All New Brockmire airs Wednesdays at 10P on IFC.

Posted by on

From baseball to beer, Jim Brockmire calls ’em like he sees ’em.


It’s no wonder at all, then, that Sam Adams would reach out to Brockmire to be their shockingly-honest (and inevitably short-term) new spokesperson. Unscripted and unrestrained, he’ll talk straight about Sam—and we’ll take his word. Check out this new testimonial for proof:

See more Brockmire Wednesdays at 10P on IFC, presented by Samuel Adams. Good f***** beer.
