The fireworks distracted us from our patriotic duty (they’re so shiny!) of informing you of what to do with your spare time. So with no further ado or sparkly interlude:
Here’s what to watch on IFC this week:
If the long weekend lured you away from your responsibilities and you failed to watch “Rhett & Link: Commercial Kings” and “Young, Broke & Beautiful” you can redeem yourself by watching encore presentations tonight at 7 p.m. ET. Do what’s right and don’t make us sic this guy on you:
Boo! Donald Sutherland and Sissy Spacek in “An American Haunting” makes everyday feel like Halloween. Put on a costume, beg the neighbors for some candy, and tune in at 6 p.m. ET while you wait for the Great Pumpkin.
“Gone Baby Gone” airs tonight at 8 and 10 p.m. ET. You should watch it and here are five good reasons to do just that. Ben Affleck’s dreaminess is not one of them.
New episodes of “Rhett & Link: Commercial Kings” and “Young, Broke & Beautiful” start at 10 p.m. ET. Hit that after work happy hour and then head home to watch the two summer shows everyone is talking about. Laffs guaranteed!
Spend Saturday with Penelope Cruz. Unless you’re Javier Bardem, you don’t get that invitation very often, so be sure to tune in when Pedro Almodovar’s Spanish ghost story, “Volver,” airs on IFC at 3:15 p.m. ET.
It’s a Freaks & Geeks sandwich! Four episodes of everyone’s favorite high school misfits air between two of the best Chinese martial arts around: Best/worst action movie “The Heroic Trio” airs at 10:15 a.m. ET and The Curse of the Golden Flower starts at 4 p.m. ET.
