The holiday season means friends, family, food — and stress. The closest many will come to relaxing will be vegging out in front of the television. Luckily IFC’s That ’70s Show Christmas Fez-tival offers the perfect assistance with digestion, as well as advice for dealing with your nearest and dearest. What tips can Eric, Kelso, Red and the rest of the gang offer for  the holiday season? Grab a mug of egg nog (and a cold beer for Red), and take a look below.

1. Remember the importance of family.

Red Forman may be the greatest advice-giver of all time. Not only does he give good advice but he’ll make sure you listen — even if that means shoving his foot so far up your ass he can wear you like a winter boot. Here he reminds us all that no matter how obligated we feel to spend time with people, we have a greater obligation to ourselves.


2. Keep your friends (and frenemies) close.

Christmas dinner means you can combine this advice into a single step and still be right. Because at Christmas dinner the line between friends and enemies is blurred all over your family tree. And if your greatest attack is feeding people with cookies, one way or another you’ll quickly find you have no enemies.


3. It’s never too late to tell someone you care.

Eric understands the most important part of the holiday season: appreciating those close to us. Take a moment to make sure they understand how you feel.


4. Watch the holiday classics on TV.

Fez’s education in all things Christmas consists mainly of television specials. It’s an excellent academic program and one we recommend everyone study this year.


5. Be open to change.

Donna identifies a slight gender imbalance in most traditional Christmas tales. The implication is that it’s better to consider the feelings of the friends and family you’re actually spending time with than the exact details of old traditions. Make sure everyone feels included!


6. Give the gift of face-melting rock.

Gift-giving is truly the spirit of the season, and Hyde arrives with an excellent combination of traditional items and something that anyone who wants to rock should own.


7. Be kind to those who want to watch their favorite TV shows (like That ’70s Show!).

This is advice we can get behind 100%. Our ideal Christmas is a roaring fire, a That ’70s Show marathon, an endless supply of snacks, and enough couch space for the whole family.

Happy holidays!

Inauguration Alternative

Bill Murray On Repeat

It's a movie "Murray-thon" all-day Friday on IFC.

Democrats, Republicans and Millennials agree: 2017 is shaping up to be a spectacle — a spectacle that really kicks into high gear this Friday with the presidential inauguration. Not only will the new POTUS swear in, but all the Country’s highest offices will be filled. It’s a daunting prospect, and to feel a little anxious about it is only normal. But if your anxiety is snowballing into panic, we have a solution:
Bill Murray.

He’s the human embodiment of a mental “Happy Place”, and there’s really no problem he can’t solve. So, with that in mind, how about we all set aside reality for a moment and let Bill take the pain away by imagining a top-shelf White House cabinet filled exclusively by his signature characters. Here are a few hypothetical appointments for your consideration…

Secretary of Defense:
Bill Murray from Stripes

His incompetence is balanced by charm, and dumb luck is inexplicably on his side. America could do worse.

Secretary of State:
Bill Murray from Lost In Translation

A seasoned globetrotter steeped in regional traditions who has the respect of the whole wide world. And he kills Costello in karaoke, which is very important.

Press Secretary:
Bill Murray from Ghostbusters

“Cats and dogs, living together. Mass hysteria.” Dude knows how to brief a room.

Secretary of Health and Human Services:
Bill Murray from What About Bob.

A doctor-approved people person who knows that progress is measured in baby steps.

Secretary of Energy:
Bill Murray from Groundhog Day

Let’s be honest, this world is going to need a lot of do-overs.

Feeling better? Hold on to that bliss. And enjoy a healthy alternative to the inauguration brouhaha with multiple Murrays all Friday long in an IFC movie marathon including Kingpin, Zombieland, Ghostbusters, and Ghostbusters II.

Hank Azaria Gets Thrown A Curve Ball

Brockmire Premieres April 5 at 10P

Unless you’ve somehow missed every episode of the Simpsons since 1989, then surely you know that Hank Azaria is one of the most important character actors of our time. He’s so prolific and his voice is so dynamic that he’s responsible for more iconic personalities than most folks realize. Basically, he’s the great and powerful Oz — except that when you pull back the curtain the truth is actually more impressive. And now Hank is coming to IFC to bring yet another character to the TV pop culture hive mind in the new series Brockmire. Check out the trailer below.

Based on the following Funny or Die short and co-starring Amanda Peet, Brockmire follows the story of imploded major league sportscaster Jim Brockmire as he tries to resurrect his career by calling plays for a floundering minor league team in a podunk town.

The series is written by Joel Church-Cooper (Undateable) and produced by Funny or Die’s Mike Farah and Joe Farrell, meaning that there’s funny in front of the camera, funny behind the camera–funny all around. Sounds like a ball to us.

Brockmire premieres April 5 at 10P on IFC.
