What to Watch on IFC: November 14 – 20

What to Watch on IFC: November 14 – 20 (photo)

Posted by on

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.

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.

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.
