Here’s what to watch this week on IFC:

Monday

Vampires are so over. Werewolves are where it’s at and we are setting the trend by bringing Friday Night Frights to Monday and airing “Ginger Snaps” at 8 p.m. ET.

Tuesday

It’s Forest Whitaker double feature night! Watch Whitaker in his Oscar-winning portrayal of Idi Amin in “The Last King of Scotland” at 8 p.m. ET followed by Jim Jarmusch’s “Ghost Dog: The Way of the Samurai” at 10 p.m. ET.

Wednesday

David Mamet’s “State and Main” stars William H. Macy, Philip Seymour Hoffman, Sarah Jessica Parker, and Alec Baldwin as a film cast and crew who wreak havoc on a small town. With a cast that good and Mamet directing, the film is guaranteed to be good smart fun.

Thursday

Terrence Malick’s “The New World” makes early America look so beautiful, you could almost want to live there. Especially with Colin Farrell running around. It airs at 9:30 a.m. and 5 p.m. ET.

Friday

It’s time for a new episode of “Whisker Wars”! The beards are getting longer as the competition heats up. Tune in at 11 p.m. ET to see what shenanigans Beard Team USA gets up to this week.

Saturday

Not sure where Saturday night may lead you? You can choose your own adventure here, because “The Descent” airs at 8 p.m. and 10 p.m. ET. If you want to watch both showings, we won’t judge.

Sunday

Spend Sunday with the Bluths. We’re showing back-to-back-to-back episodes of “Arrested Development” beginning at 12:15 p.m. ET.

Final Countdown

The Best Of The Last

Portlandia Goes Out With A Bang

Posted by on

The end is near. In mere days Portlandia wraps up its final season, and oh what a season it’s been. Lucky for you, you can watch the entire season right now right here and on the IFC app, including this free episode courtesy of Subaru.

But now, let’s take a moment to look back at some of the new classics Fred and Carrie have so thoughtfully bestowed upon us. (We’ll be looking back through tear-blurred eyes, but you do you.)

Couples Dinner

It’s not that being single sucks, it’s that you suck if you’re single.

Cancel it!

A sketch for anyone who has cancelled more appointments than they’ve kept. Which is everyone.

Forgotten America

This one’s a “Serial” killer…everything both right and wrong about true crime podcasts.

Wedding Planners

The only bad wedding is a boring wedding.

Disaster Hut

It’s only the end of the world if your doomsday kit doesn’t include rosé.

Catch up on Portlandia’s final episodes on demand and at IFC.com

Rev Up

Your Portlandia Personality Test

The New Portlandia Webseries Is Going Your Way

Posted by on

Carrie and Fred understand that although we have so much in common, we’re each so beautifully unique and different. To help us navigate those differences, Portlandia has found an easy and honest way to embrace our special selves in the form of a progressive new traffic system: a specific lane for every kind of driver. It’s all in honor of the show’s 8th and final season, and it’s all presented by Subaru.

Ready to find out who you really are? Match your personality to a lane and hop on the expressway to self-understanding.

Lane 10: Trucks Piled With Junk

Your junk is falling out of your trunk. Shake a tail light, people — this lane is for you.

Lane 33: Twins

You’re like a Gemini, but waaaay more pedestrian. Maybe you and a friend just wear the same outfits a lot. Who cares, it’s just twinning enough to make you feel special.

Lane 27: Broken Windows

Bad luck follows you around and everyone knows it. Your proverbial seat is always damp from proverbial rain. Is this the universe telling you to swallow your pride? Yes.

Lane 69: Filthy Cars

You’re all about convenience. Getting your car washed while you drive is a no-brainer.

Lane 43: Newly Divorced Singles

It’s been a while since you’ve driven alone, and you don’t know the rules of the road anymore. What’s too fast? What’s too slow? Are you sending the right signals? Don’t worry, the breakdown lane is nearby if you need it.

Still can’t find a lane to match your personality? Check out all the videos here. And see the final season of Portlandia this spring on IFC.

It’s the final countdown to Christmas and thanks to IFC’s movie marathon all Christmas Eve and Christmas Day, you can revel in classic ’80s films AND find inspiration for your last-minute gifts. Here are our recommendations, if you need a head start:

Musical Instrument

Great analog entertainment substitute when you refuse to give your kid the Nintendo Switch they’ve been drooling over.

Breakfast In Bed

Any significant other or child would appreciate these Uncle Buck-approved flapjacks. Just make sure you’re not stuck on clean up duty.

Cocktail Supplies

You’ll need them to get through the holidays.

Dance Lessons

So you can learn to shake-shake-shake (unless you know ghosts willing to lend a hand).

Comfy Clothes

With all the holiday meals, there may be some…embigenning.



Get even more great inspiration all Christmas Eve and Day on IFC, and remember…
