The summer solstice has come and gone, which means it is officially lemonade season. What better way to enjoy an ice-cold glass than in front of the warming blue glow of the television set?

Here’s what to watch this week on IFC:


Even Garfield would get over his hatred of Mondays if he could watch “Freaks & Geeks” at 6 p.m., “Undeclared” at 7 p.m., and “The Whitest Kids U’Know” at 7:30 p.m. ET. If that doesn’t work, we have “Hostel” at 8 p.m. and 10 p.m. ET.


Did you do something crazy and regrettable on Friday night and miss the premieres of “Rhett & Link: Commercial Kings” and “Young, Broke, & Beautiful”? Just for you crazy kids we are re-airing the shows beginning at 7 p.m. ET.

Here’s a classic clip from “Rhett & Link”:


“Gone Baby Gone” is one of the best movies you probably haven’t seen. Luckily we are showing it tonight at 8 p.m. ET and at 10 p.m. ET, so you can correct that travesty and start wondering why Casey Affleck isn’t more famous than his big brother.


Frank Miller’s dark and haunting graphic novel comes to life in Robert Rodriguez’s “Sin City.” Starring Mickey Rourke, Clive Owen, Benicio Del Toro, Bruce Willis, Jessica Alba, and a million other big names, the noir crime drama puts the “graphic” in graphic novel. The show starts at 8 p.m. and again at 10 p.m. ET.


Everyone’s favorite new shows “Rhett & Link: Commercial Kings” starts at 10 p.m. ET. Pop over to IFC.com for a live recap of the show with stars Rhett McLaughlin and Link Neal. Then follow Broke-Ass Stuart Schuffman as he leads you on a guided tour of America’s best cities in “Young, Broke, & Beautiful” at 11 p.m. ET. Here’s a sneak peek at what’s coming up on “Young, Broke, & Beautiful”:

Director Paulo Morelli is known for giving a starkly realistic and harsh portrait of life on the mean streets of Rio De Janeiro’s infamous favelas. “City of Men,” the companion piece to his award-winning film “City of God” airs at 1:45 p.m. ET.


It’s a three-day weekend, so spend Sunday with the Bluths! We’re showing an “Arrested Development” marathon from 11:45 a.m. ET until 3:15 p.m. ET. It’s what the Founding Fathers would want you to do.

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.
