The special tells the unbelievable story of the 1972 Uruguayan Air Force Flight 571 carrying a rugby team traveling with friends and family to a match in Chile. Of the 45 passengers, only 16 ultimately survived after the plane crashed in a remote location in the snow-covered Andes Mountains. With reporting by ABC News contributor Chris Connelly, the two-hour documentary features new interviews with five of the crash survivors, Nando Parrado, Roberto Canessa, Carlitos Páez Rodríguez, Eduardo Strauch and Roy Harley. They tell their story of fighting for survival over the course of 72 days in the freezing wilderness. Through their chilling firsthand accounts, the five men share their story of determination and perseverance, which helped inspire the popular series “Yellowjackets.” From defying death in the plane crash and two avalanches to near starvation, they relive the unimaginable choices they were forced to make to stay alive by eating the bodies of their dead friends as their only option for survival. After 61 days on the mountain, Parrado and Canessa led the way to their miraculous escape and rescue.

Overnight was the series premiere of 100 Years of Warner Bros. on Max, along with a 2nd new episode. Exploring the impact of Warner Bros. on art, commerce and culture, 100 Years of Warner Bros. tells the unprecedented story of the fabled entertainment studio on its 100th anniversary. Featuring insights and first-person stories from directors, actors, executives, journalists and historians, the four specials trace Warner Bros.’ underdog origins – from its founding in the early 1920s by four brothers from an immigrant family, through decades of creative risks and impactful storytelling, to the historic mergers of the 2000s that transformed the company into a global entertainment powerhouse. With narration by Morgan Freeman and clips from iconic films and hit TV series, the limited series offers a fascinating behind-the-scenes look into the indelible stories that have spoken to audiences around the world for generations.
Overnight was the complete first season premiere of FUBAR on Netflix. WHen a father and daughter discover they both secretly work for the CIA, an already dicey undercover mission turns into a dysfunctional family affair. It stars Andy Buckley, Aparna Brielle, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Barbara Eve Harris, Fabiana Udenio, Fortune Feimster, Gabriel Luna, Jay Baruchel, Milan Carter, Monica Barbaro, & Travis Van Winkle.
Overnight was the series premiere of Judge Me Not on ALLBLK. Loosely based on the life of the famed Judge Lynn Toler, Judge Me Not tells the story of female attorney Zelma Jay Johnson who is as troubled as she is troubling. While navigating mental health issues, a rocky relationship, and a volatile family… Zelma surprises everyone when she wins a judicial seat at the ripe age of 31. However, once she achieves this goal, she must fight her inner demons whilst managing the chaos of the court system.

After running into him unexpectedly, she discovers he has entered the Valentine 10k Run and doesn’t want to miss out on an opportunity to reconnect. She quickly signs up for the run then recruits The Love Club – four women who made a vow to always be there for one another during times of romantic troubles – to help. After being paired up with a running buddy and also the chef and owner of a struggling local restaurant, it becomes apparent to everyone but Sydney that it is Theo (not her ex) who seems to share a bond with her – especially over their love of food and cooking.

    When will you start consistently posting the schedules so I can see Sundays stuff on Sunday? In the past 2 months you have been late multiple times and I once needed to wait until Wednesday to see Sundays shows listed.

      Ummm…she does this for free bro. Chill.

      The only thing I can think of is when there was some caching issues we were having, so it ;likely had to do with that. It shouldn’t be continuing, as we fixed that a few weeks ago.

      • Jeff L says:

        idk about cache issues but Im looking at the main page right now and dont see this weeks stuff.

        • Jenny says:

          You don’t see this post? Site News – No Schedule This Week

          When I log out, viewing the site as a normal user, I see it just fine. If you don’t see it, try clearing your cache and see what happens.

          • Jeff L says:

            I cleared my cache. I have never logged in, I feel no need to do so as there is no advantage. This is what i see on the HOME page…

          • Jeff L says:

            Oh… Now its there. It just came up. Not on the schedule page where i always go for the schedule or where you might think the schedule would be. Well since you just didnt do it this week, maybe someone can suggest a page like this that does do every week?

    • andrea oconnell says:

      Seriously. SMH. I love this site and am grateful you have put it together!

  3. Wiff says:

    I think you should leave with Tim robinson

  4. Jenny says:

    Jeff L, since it won’t let me reply anymore, I will say this. I mentioned two sites in my post that you can go to. The Futon Critic has a lot of the same information I do, but they are regularly wrong on a lot of things. Zap2It is usually correct and up-to-date, but they don’t have any streaming shows listed, and they aren’t as easy to see in one glance. Most, if not all, places will use grids like Zap2It. So if you want to just use that, feel free. No one is keeping you here. It’s a free service, and I have multiple jobs aside from this. Since I do this site 99.99% on my own and for free, frankly, if you don’t like it, there’s the door. I’m done trying to pander to you. Kindly eff off if you aren’t happy.

    • Kman says:

      I appreciate this site so much. Honestly, the premiers/finales is enough for me. And I second that Jeff can eff off. Why should you have to explain to people how websites work or how you spend your personal time?

  5. Ashley says:

    Jenny, you could be a week late and I’d still appreciate what you do! On my end you haven’t been late in a long time and in the rare case you’re going to miss you’ve even been kind enough to let us know! So a big THANK YOU!

  6. Daniel says:

    I really wish I could help this page out, but I literally use it to plan out the majority of my day.
    I don’t know what I’d do without this page, and I hope you understand how much you are valued. Once again, I don’t know how I’d begin to contribute, because all my info comes from you.
