Heavens to Betsy, there's a BLACK man in Downton Abbey! Quick, somebody hand out the smelling salts and make absolutely sure everyone has at least one eyebrow raised to fully capture an uncomfortable mix of bemusement and fear! Oh, and do make a very quiet, restrained phone call to the authorities! This is bedlam, mind you, bedlam!
While most of America is gearing up for the Super Bowl this weekend, autistic kid athlete Grayson Christian's big moment on the football field is probably more inspiring than anything we're likely to see on Sunday. On "Friday Night Tykes" (Tues. at 9:00 p.m. on Esquire Network), a devoted coach makes sure young Grayson gets to feel what it's like to score a winning touchdown -- and convinces his other players to get involved. Watch the clip below and grab the Kleenex.
Don't know what to wear at your Super Bowl soiree this Sunday? Oh, you don't care? Well, not everyone is showing up in a stained team jersey and ratty blue jeans, my friend, and "Under the Gunn" and "Project Runway" mega mentor knows that. Thankfully, he has some advice. No dickeys, people! No, no, no!
So, that happened. I think we all need a moment to process, don't we? And really, I needed to lay down some text without spoilers before the jump, and I'm just not sure what I can say about this episode that isn't a spoiler. Wait, Caroline's hair looked nice, didn't it? And... I'm out. Let's just discuss the big, bloody elephant in the room already.
In the latest episode of "Oprah: Where Are They Now" (Fri. Jan. 31 at 9:00 p.m. on OWN), we catch up with a passel of stars including "All My Children" veteran Susan Lucci. If you're wondering how it feels to lose a job you've had for 41 years, watch this exclusive clip. While Lucci is doing just fine these days (and people who aren't soap fans are probably seeing a lot more of her than they used to), she still went through a lengthy grieving process over the gig.
So, our journey with "American Horror Story: Coven" finally gasps its agonized last breath this week, and a new Supreme is crowned. But first, a music video from Stevie Nicks! Because that makes sense, right? Stop laughing. Misty would be, like, TOTALLY mad at you.
Bond fans will probably want to tune in to all four parts of "Fleming: The Man Who Would Be Bond" (Wed. Jan. 29 at 10:00 p.m. ET on BBC America) in order to play a game of "Hey, he really did that! Maybe!"
If you've already abandoned your New Year's resolutions, maybe Chuck's story from this week's "My 600-lb Life" (Tues. Jan. 28 at 9:00 p.m. on TLC) will make you feel a bit better about that.
Love SoCal car culture? So do Billy Derian and Steve Reck. They've been friends for years with the same dream – working in a garage that fixes up and restores vintage cars and hot rods. Now they have Da Rod Shop, located in the heart of Southern California’s car culture. "Rods N Wheels," an all-new Discovery Channel series (premieres Mon. Jan. 27 at 10:00 p.m.) gets down and dirty with the guys and their crew. In this exclusive clip, we see what they're up against in the first episode -- restoring a 1932 Ford 3 Window from a rusted-out hull into a showstopper in just two weeks.
While a great many minor things happened in this episode of "Downton Abbey," mostly they seemed to be crumbs for us to remember for future storylines. Evelyn Napier shows up? Hmm, interesting. Edith visits a doctor when she says she's going to Michael's office? Have a bad feeling about that one. Robert defies Branson and Mary's plans for the estate? That may actually be fine. Really, it's all very well and good, but the focus of this episode is the one we've all been waiting to see (and perhaps dreading to happen). Spoilers ahead, people.
