Screw the sweet potatoes! Forget the turkey! Don’t even start with the pilgrims and Indians. This week we’re thankful for nothing but R. Kelly, Trapped in the Closet and the second season of Whisker Wars. We’re spending Thanksgiving ignoring the family and watching back-to-back chapters of Trapped in the Closet, followed by Trapped in the Closet: The Deluxe Edition at 11. Then on Friday we’re spending the day waiting for the premiere of all new chapters of Trapped at 9/8c and staying tuned for the premiere of the second season of Whisker Wars at 10/9c.

Here’s what to watch this week on IFC:

Monday

Fans of Captain Jean-Luc Picard will want to tune in to watch the first Star Trek: The Next Generation full-length movie, “Star Trek: First Contact” at 10:30 p.m. ET. Watch as Picard (Patrick Stewart), first mate Riker (Jonathan Frakes) and the others set off to stop the half-robot Borg from sabotaging a historic rocket flight in 2063. Resistance is futile, so tune in.

Tuesday

Nothing to make you thankful like watching others’ misfortunes. So tune in to watch “Leatherface: The Texas Chainsaw Massacre III” at 10:15/9:15c. See how rural Texas cannibals do Thanksgiving totally wrongy by waylaying yuppie motorists (Kate Hodge, William Butler) driving from Los Angeles to Florida.

Wednesday

Soothe your holiday travel woes by fantasizing that Jason Statham is driving you to eat Aunt Sherry’s dry turkey or just watch “Transporter 3” at 8/7c or 10:15/9:15c. In the Luc Besson production, watch as mob courier Frank Martin (Jason Statham) and his a cynical Ukrainian woman (Natalya Rudakova), get shackled together with handcuffs that will explode if they wander too far from his car. Sounds like more fun than dinner at Aunt Sherry’s, eh?

Thursday

Happy R. Kelly day! Happy Thanksgiving, too, but hurry up and polish off that turkey, slice up the pumpkin pie and settle down to watch Part 1 and Part 2 of Trapped in the Closet airing back-to-back all day, starting at 10 am/9 am C. Topping it all off like the gravy on the mashed potatoes is Trapped in the Closet: The Deluxe Edition at 11/10c. It’s a newly remastered and remixed edition of the saga from the very beginning.

Friday

Catch up on chapters 1- 22 of R. Kelly’s hip hopera Trapped in the Closet with Chapter 23, which you can watch below, before the saga continues with all new chapters tonight at 9/8c. Then stay tuned for the second season of Whisker Wars,which kicks off at 10/9c.

Saturday

Spend Saturday night nose deep in a graphic novel without ever picking up a book. We’re showing Frank Miller’s and Will Eisner’s “The Spirit” at 8/7c followed by Robert Rodriguez’s and Frank Miller’s “Sin City” at 10/9c.

Sunday

In case you missed it, we’re showing Trapped in the Closet: Deluxe Edition again at 8/7c. It’s a newly remastered and remixed edition of R. Kelly’s bold hip hopera. Follow the saga from the very beginning of the humorous and dramatic journey through Chicago with an interesting cast of characters who are connected by a mysterious package.

It’s been (Barenaked Ladies style) seven years since Comedy Bang! Bang! premiered on Southern California’s Indie 103 radio station as a music and variety show, then known as Comedy Death-Ray. And in those seven years, host Scott Aukerman has evolved the radio show into a podcast, a TV series, and a comedy mainstay for fans of surreal, offbeat humor. To celebrate the special occasion, Scott invited fan favorites Jason Mantzoukas, Horatio Sanz and Paul F. Tompkins, as well as a slew of popular characters and segments, to CB!B!’s 7th Anniversary Show.

Click here to listen to the 7th anniversary show on Earwolf. And just a reminder, Comedy Bang! Bang! returns to IFC for a fifth season on June 3rd with back-to-back episodes on Fridays at 11P ET/PT and 11:30P ET/PT. Season Five will feature “Weird Al” Yankovic as the new bandleader and a bevy of guests like Kevin Bacon, Kristen Schaal, Tony Hale, Aubrey Plaza, T-Pain, and more.

That 70s Show Cast Reunion

Hangin' Out

That ’70s Show Reunion Photo Proves the Kids Are Still Alright

Catch That '70s Show Mondays & Tuesdays starting at 6P on IFC.

The stars of That ’70s Show had their own throwback reunion as Fez, Jackie, Kelso, Donna, and Hyde recently got back together for a candid on-set photo. Posted to Laura Prepon‘s Instagram account, actors Wilmer Valderrama, Mila Kunis, Ashton Kutcher, Danny Masterson, and Prepon posed on the set of Netflix’s The Ranch — which stars Kutcher and Masterson as brothers who manage their family ranch. Older and wiser but no less striking, the cast seems to have weathered the ’80s (and the ’00s) very well.

Keeping this from being a complete That ’70s Show reunion is Topher Grace’s absence, but this photo works as a reunion of the cast from the post-Eric final season. With The Ranch renewed for a second season, we could be seeing more ’70s reunion moments. Maybe Tommy Chong will stop by?
