Tonight is the 85-minute series premiere of Ascension on Syfy at 9/8c. The show a covert U.S. space mission launched in the 1960s that sent hundreds of men, women, and children on a century-long voyage aboard the starship Ascension to populate a new world. Halfway into their journey, as they approach the point of no return, the mysterious murder of a young woman causes the ship’s population to question the true nature of their mission. The series stars Brandon P. Bell (Hollywood Heights) as the confident and capable First Officer Aaron Gault, Brian Van Holt (Cougar Town, The Bridge) as the eponymous ship’s Captain William Denninger, and Tricia Helfer (Battlestar Galactica) as Viondra Denninger, the captain’s beautiful, manipulative and dangerous wife (who also serves as the ship’s Chief Steward). Joining Bell, Van Holt, and Helfer are Tiffany Lonsdale as Chief Astronomer Emily Vanderhaus, Andrea Roth as the ship’s head doctor Juliet Bryce, Jacqueline Byers as her daughter, Nora Bryce, and P.J. Boudousqué as Nora’s love interest, James Toback.

Tonight is the premiere of the first five episodes of All Hail King Julien on Netflix at 12:01AM/11:01PMc. Long before the Zoosters arrive on Madagascar, King Julien holds court — not to mention nightly revelries — over a colorful cast that includes fan favorites Mort and Maurice, along with a host of all-new jungle dwellers as they take on the craziest adventures and wildest parties the jungle has to offer. Keeping tune with the dance-crazed taste of its lead character, the humor of All Hail King Julien is backed by a pulse-pounding original score that includes a brand-new, infectiously upbeat theme song. The series features a talented voice cast that includes television legend Henry Winkler (Royal Pains, Happy Days) as Julien’s regal predecessor, Uncle King Julien, alongside Emmy-winning actor Danny Jacobs as King Julien, Andy Richter (Conan, Arrested Development) as Mort, Kevin Michael Richardson (Family Guy) as Maurice, and India de Beaufort (One Tree Hill) as Clover, the king’s special-ops expert.
