Well, that’s it, summer is over. Your white pants have to go into storage for nine months and your seersucker can’t come out and play until the next yacht rock party you’re invited to. What to do with all this free time while your croquet set sits on ice? Watch TV of course!

Here’s what to watch on IFC this week:


Get your religion with a healthy dose of humor when “Borat” director Larry Charles follows comic Bill Maher around the globe as he interviews people of every make and model about God and religion. “Religulous” starts at 8:05 p.m. ET.


“Juno” star Ellen Page plays a seemingly innocent teenage girl in


Return your videotapes and tune in at 9:15 p.m. ET to see everybody’s favorite Wall Street sociopathic killer. Christian Bale stars as Patrick Bateman in “American Psycho,” Bret Easton Ellis’ dark and violent satire of America in the 1980s. The movie airs again at 11:30 p.m. ET.


After a week-long hiatus that felt like an eternity, a new episode of “Whisker Wars” starts at 11 p.m. ET. See what happens when Beard Team USA heads to Detroit to compete in the Motor City Beard and Mustache competition.


“The Skeptic” stars Tim Daly as a skeptical attorney who moves into a beautiful house with an ominous history, only to experience a series of bizarre and frightening occurrences beyond his comprehension. Zoe Saldana plays a psychic who has an idea about the dark secret behind the haunting. The thrills and chills start at 6 p.m. ET.


Hey armchair travelers, if you missed any episodes of “Young, Broke & Beautiful” now is your chance to catch up. We are traveling cross-country with Broke-Ass Stuart in a marathon beginning at 11:30 a.m. ET. We will hit off-the-beaten-path spots in San Diego, Boston, Baltimore, Detroit, Memphis and New Orleans in under three hours.

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.

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.
