Here’s what to watch this week on IFC:

Monday

Start your week out with a start when we show “The Omen” at 10:15 p.m. ET. In this version of the freaky franchise, an American diplomat (Liev Schreiber) and his wife (Julia Stiles) learn that the child they adopted may be the son of Satan. What’s the return policy on orphans again?

Tuesday

Monty Python fix when we show the “Monty Python: Almost the Truth (The Lawyer’s Cut)” all day starting at 9 a.m. ET with so-called “The Not-So-Interesting Beginnings.” Watch as Eric Idle, Terry Gilliam, John Cleese, Michael Palin and Terry Jones talk about the life and times of Monty Python. It is mandatory viewing for any true Python fan.

Wednesday

Hookers, a mule and a suicidal friend? Who says we don’t know how to throw a party. Tune in at 8/7c for “Bachelor Party” at 8/7c for the ultimate hotel bash when school-bus driver and professional party animal Rick (Tom Hanks) gets married to Tawny Kitaen.

Thursday

Can’t afford a vacation? You won’t want one after “The Hills Have Eyes.” The film is a torture porn upgrade of Wes Craven’s creepy classic by director Alexandre Aja. The brutal remake makes a strong argument against ever going on a cross-country family vacation when en route from Cleveland to San Diego, the Carter family breaks down (and not by accident) in the badlands of New Mexico, where they’re soon terrorized by a clan of crazed mutants who proceed to rape, burn and shoot everyone in sight. Tune in for terror at 11:15 p.m. ET.

Friday

Tune in for a brand new episode of “Out There” at 10/9c. Chad is smitten with new girl Destiny (voiced by Selma Blair), but he blows his chance after saving Jay from a bully who turns out to be her brother. Chad enlists Chris’ help to win her back with an elaborate plan involving walkie-talkies and a mysterious aphrodisiac.

Saturday

Looking for an excuse to stay in on Saturday night? Well at 7:45 p.m. ET we’re showing Rob Zombie’s “House of 1000 Corpses” which is scary enough to make you want to stay inside, maybe forever! In the movie, four travelers take refuge in the home of a clan of demented killers.

Sunday

Spend the day in “Portlandia”! Watch back-to-back episodes from the third season of everyone’s favorite sketch comedy show starting at 3 p.m. ET. Want more options because it’s Sunday and you don’t want to leave the couch? Back-to-back episodes of “Arrested Development” kick off at 12/11c.

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

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.

Cocktail Supplies

You’ll need them to get through the holidays.
