This week's lineup in packed with all the lovely, crude, animated shows that we love the channel for. More

‘Time Is a Flat Circus’ meshes ‘True Detective’ with ‘Family Circus,’ and its distrubingly perfect
TV
Rust Cohle, for all his nihilist pontificating, never could have sensed that his bleak theorizing would strike such a resounding note with the Sunday funnies, but thank goodness we have Tumblr to open our eyes. Launched April 12, Time Is a Flat Circus pairs Cohle's darkest, most prophetically savage quotes with seemingly innocent clippings from the long-running syndicated cartoon "Family Circus." This would normally seem like an odd pairing, but, as a detective, Tumblr isn't allowed to believe in coincidence. There's something to all this. Something Cohle himself was too busy intimidating witnesses with his sniper/bar owner friend to have seen for himself. More

Watch: Cambridge native Mindy Kaling talks Boston accents with Conan
TV
Mindy Kaling, known as the star of her own show "The Mindy Project" as well as for her work on "The Office" and more, was once an intern on "Late Night with Conan O'Brien," but last night, she returned to Conan's show to catch up with host. On the top of their list was a chat about the Boston accent. Conan, a Brookline native, didn't seem too hot on the Boston lingo, but Kaling was open in admitting that she still finds it "sexy." She then went on to describe, in full detail, her workout habit of envisioning herself in an action movie montage as she works up a sweat. And she might have a little crush on Michael Fasbender. More

Stuff I shout at the TV – ‘Scandal’ recap – ‘Flesh and Blood’
TV

Last night's episode of “Scandal” started with panic in the air. The wheels were in motion on a bombing meant to take out the president of the United States being orchestrated by Maria Wallace (AKA Olivia Pope's mom) and some dude from Russia. Because no matter how many countries America may go to war with, there will never be a better super-villain accent than Russian.

7 possible bandleaders for Stephen Colbert’s ‘Late Show’
TV
It was announced this week that Stephen Colbert, host of "The Colbert Report" will be taking over for David Letterman upon his retirement from "The Late Show" in 2015. The political funny man has carved himself a sarcastic, witty, often boundary-pushing persona with a style of humor to boot, but he's also had a knack for hitting it off with the music types. Even just recently on "The Colbert Report," Colbert has featured performances from Lake Street Dive, The National, and more. More

Unaired ‘SNL’ skit pokes fun at ‘Zoom’ with ‘Zap!’
TV
It's been a slow season for "Saturday Night Live." Nothing to cause a fuss about, every new cast has some growing pains to fight through before they find recurring characters and win the SNL faithful over. But this past Saturday, it seems like the show unwisely ditched a pretty funny sketch loosely making fun of the kids' show "Zoom," which many of you may know was produced right here in Boston at WGBH. The skit, which chronicles a show called "Zap!," toys with the idea that the charismatic child actors on '90s kids shows were so pumped up all the time because they were pumped with massive amounts of speed. As usual, Tarran Killam leads the way in this clip, but the sketch as a whole is worth a few belly laughs, and a trip down "Zoom" memory lane. More

Stuff I Shout at the TV: ‘Scandal’ recap – ‘The Fluffer’
TV

“Scandal” now sits just a few weeks away from its season finale, the point in the year where shows usually start slamming the accelerator and amping up the intensity. If you watch “Scandal,” you know that its intensity meter was already pretty maxed out, so this should be fun. Last night's episode, titled “The Fluffer,” did not disappoint. It was full of intrigue, tension, and, of course, a giant heap of ridiculous moments. Here's a few things it left me shouting at the television.

15 Boston celebs most likely to succeed David Letterman
TV
Last night, the American TV audience reached an unthinkable inevitability - David Letterman, the reigning king of late-night, announced that he'll be retiring in 2015. After 22 years on "The Late Show," the 66-year-old gap-toothed legend will be difficult to replace. The Internet is awash with reports, hearsay, and conspiracy theories about who is jockeying for his spot atop the after-hours talk show plateau, with guesses ranging from Jon Stewart to Maya Rudolph. However, there is a bevy of local celebs that the BDCwire staff thinks deserves a look, so we decided to lay down the odds on which Hub-affiliated personality is most likely to take up hosting duties on "The Late Show."
