Here’s what to watch this week on IFC:
It may be the middle of November, but there’s no reason not to watch the best summer camp movie ever. We’re talking about “Meatballs,” of course, and it airs at 10 p.m. ET.
We know it’s a little early for Christmas presents, but we just couldn’t wait to let you watch back-to-back episodes of “Arrested Development.” So thank the Thanksgiving fairy when you watch the misadventures of the family Bluth beginning at 7 p.m. ET.
Stay up late, wake up early or just set your DVR like a boss, because we’re showing the gruesomely festive “Black Christmas” at 3:30 a.m. ET. Fun fact: This “Black Christmas” is a remake of the 1974 horror film of the same name by director Bob Clark, who later made a less-threatening film about the Yuletide season, “A Christmas Story.”
Tune in at 10:15 p.m. ET to see Johnny Depp and Helena Bonham Carter take a turn in Tim Burton’s version of a Stephen Sondheim musical, “Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street”. Take a deep breath, parse that sentence, see that we’re right, and then watch a great dark twisted movie tonight.
Catch the “Onion News Network” on its new night at 10/9c. To help boost ratings during sweeps, it’s “Sex in America” week on the FactZone. We will be covering the most important sex-related stories of the moment including a robot that warns you when someone’s about to walk in on you masturbating. How can you not watch that?
Just to remind you of things to be thankful for as we ramp up to Thanksgiving, we’re showing “Full Metal Jacket.” Stanley Kubrick’s stark look at the Vietnam War will have you crying in gratitude for your turkey, mashed potatoes, and even dirty Uncle Stanley. The fun starts at 8:05 p.m. ET.
And on the seventh day, God created Brooke Alvarez. So he won’t mind if you skip church to stay home and watch a marathon of the second season of the “Onion News Network”. Beginning at 9 a.m. ET, Brooke will explain all the latest news in small words even you can understand.
