It’s officially holiday season. Which means you will want to spend hours on the couch in your parents’ basement surreptitiously unbuttoning your pants and wishing you hadn’t eaten thirds of Aunt Zelda’s famous mashed potatoes. We can’t help you with your self-control, but we can help you plan your TV watching.
Here’s what to watch on IFC this week:
Nothing says “it’s the holidays” quite like the annual airing of Stanley Kubrick’s“The Shining.” Gather the family round the warming glow of the television and wait for little Jimmy to start croaking “Redrum! Redrum!” Fun for the whole family starts at 11 p.m. ET.
“The Last King of Scotland” will remind you of all the things to be thankful for. Also, it’s a really good movie. Tune in at 10 p.m. ET.
We have three little words to make your Thanksgiving that much better: “Arrested Development” marathon. All day, all night. It’s our little way of showing that we’re thankful for YOU.
Sick of your family? Send them to the mall for those Black Friday sales while you watch back-to-back episodes of “Malcolm in the Middle” beginning at 6 p.m. ET, to remind yourself that your family just isn’t that bad. Reggie Watts knows what’s up:
Get lunch with the Pythons! Grab a plate of leftovers and settle in because “Monty Python Live at the Hollywood Bowl” starts at 1:45 p.m. ET.
If you don’t believe that the path to hell is paved with good intentions, catch Christopher Walken in Abel Ferrara’s “The King of New York” at 8:45 p.m. ET.
