Me, Myself and Her

Me, Myself and Her is a compelling tale of two women trying to navigate a relationship in their mature years with very teenage-esque insecurities nipping at their seemingly happy partnership.

La La Land

La La Land is being called a love letter to the movies and Los Angeles. The film stars Emma Stone as an actress and Ryan Gosling as a jazz musician, falling in love while pursuing their dreams in the City of Angels. It evokes old MGM musicals while staying planted in the present, and, according to New York Times critic A.O. Scott, "succeeds both as a fizzy fantasy and a hard-headed fable, a romantic comedy and a showbiz melodrama, a work of sublime artifice and touching authenticity." It's written and directed by Dennis Chazelle and also features John Legend, J.K. Simmons, and Rosemarie DeWitt. It's playing in New York and Los Angeles now and will open in additional cities December 16.

It airs Monday at 9 p.m., Wednesday at 10 a.m., and December 17 at 11 a.m.; all times are Eastern/Pacific.


A John Waters Christmas

We should have known John Waters loved Christmas -- who can forget that iconic scene from Female Trouble when Dawn Davenport goes ballistic because Santa failed to deliver cha-cha heels? The out director of Pink Flamingos, Hairspray, and Serial Mom is bringing his holiday fetish to the stage for A John Waters Christmas, a one-man show premiering Wednesday in Dallas. Waters has eight shows -- back to back! -- with the mini-tour concluding in none other than Waters's beloved Baltimore. Who better to provide perspective on Trumpland than the "Pope of Trash"?

With her successful Malawi fundraiser at Miami's Art Basel and her highly enjoyable carpool karaoke segment, Madonna is everywhere lately. Get ready for more Madge tonight, as Showtime premieres her Rebel Heart tour, which began last year and concluded this spring in Australia. The two-hour spectacle knits together the best performances of iconic tunes like "Burning Up," "Deeper and Deeper," "La Isla Bonita," "Live a Virgin," "Music," "Material Girl," and "Holiday," along with standout cuts from her latest album, Rebel Heart, like "Living for Love," "Body Shop," and "Unapologetic Bitch." Unlike a real live Madonna performance, this show starts on time, at 9 p.m. sharp.
