Every Thursday night at 7:45 p.m. ET/PT, The Grid opens its doors and host Jesse Thorn welcomes viewers to a smorgasbord of cultural delights. Ranging from music to memes to movies to must have items, The Grid covers every possible topic people could be discussing around the water cooler, virtual or IRL.
However, in the long television tradition, we have to add: But wait, there’s more! While The Grid will leave you so stuffed with pop culture tidbits you will feel like Kate Moss at an all you can eat Chinese buffet, we couldn’t send you home without a doggie bag. So, if you’re feeling peckish an hour later, head on over to The Grid’s Bonus Round. It’s a veritable pu pu platter of the finest the internet has to offer. For example, a round up of the best in false humility: the Twitter-based Humble Brag meme. (Are you on Twitter? Stop by and say hi @ifcdotcom). Or see the adorable, educational, and delicious Pizza flags. Without The Bonus Round how would you know where to buy a Molecular Gastronomy Starter Kit?
And, of course, The Grid’s Bonus Round is covering The Angry Birds Peace Summit. That’s right the pigs and birds are talking:
