Performer of the Week: Rachel Bloom
The Performer | Rachel Bloom

The Show | Crazy Ex-Girlfriend

The Episode | “Josh Is Irrelevant.” (Nov. 17, 2017)

The Performance | Crazy Ex-Girlfriend is considered a comedy — and it is damn funny — but that really only scratches the surface of the full range of complex emotions Bloom goes through each week playing the “adorably obsessed” Rebecca Bunch. And that range was on full display this week, as we learned exactly how “crazy” Rebecca actually is.

As the episode opened, Rebecca was still recuperating from last week’s suicide attempt, and massive regret and shame was written all over Bloom’s face as Rebecca weakly confessed

Rob Huebel on His ‘Comedy Mafia’ and Making Justin Long Strip Naked at a Malibu Beach — Turn It On Podcast
For his new YouTube Red series, Rob Huebel couldn’t find a nude beach to shoot a scene. So he forced a nude Justin Long on unsuspecting families at a beach in Malibu.

“We’re naked, and families are out there, children are crying, and other people are out there filming us with their phones,” Huebel told IndieWire’s Turn It On podcast. “The producers had to go up to people and say, ‘hey man, please don’t post that naked photo of Justin Long on the Internet or sell it to TMZ!”

Long is one of the guests on Huebel’s new irreverent YouTube Red series “Do You Want to See A Dead Body?” The comedy features Huebel and celebrity friends as they search for a dead body that Huebel has found.

The Exorcist Video: Marcus Taunts the Demon, Tomas Has a Bloody Fright
No more Mr. Nice Andy.

As this exclusive sneak peek from tonight’s episode of The Exorcist (Fox, 9/8c) shows, John Cho’s usually affable character is no longer the easygoing, kind foster dad we met at the beginning of the season. (In his defense, the same might happen to you if you were being tormented by a demon wearing the face of your dead spouse.) But he’s holding it together as best he can… even when Ben Daniels’ Marcus starts asking pointed questions about the kids and playing with the (bloody?) rock that Tomas saw in the workshop in the last episode.

Kenneth Lonergan, Vanessa Redgrave, Claude Lelouch to Attend Mar del Plata Film Festival

Madrid — The 38th Mar del Plata Film Festival opens on Nov. 17 with Serge Bozon’s farce “Mrs. Hyde,” starring Isabelle Huppert, and inevitable speculation about how Peter Scarlet’s appointment as artistic director will re-set Argentina’s most august film event. Kogonada’s “Columbus” is one of the films in the main international feature competition.

In broad terms, his influence can be seen in several ways. First, festival titles have been pared back from 420 to 320. That may still be too many, Scarlet said, but is a step in the right direction. “I believe festivals are about quality of films rather than quantity. I’m trying to go in that direction.”

Second, Mar del Plata’s masterclasses, a fixture at the Atlantic Coast event, have multiplied in heavyweight name attendance, while morphing into conversations, reflecting Scarlet’s pulling power after nearly 30 years directing the San Francisco (1983-2001), Tribeca (2003-09) and Abu Dhabi (2009-13) film festivals. “Manchester By the Sea’s” [link

Family Guy Ep Previews Special Tribute to Quentin Tarantino, Wes Anderson and Michael Bay — Watch a Clip

Family Guy Ep Previews Special Tribute to Quentin Tarantino, Wes Anderson and Michael Bay — Watch a Clip
Sunday’s Family Guy (Fox, 9/8c) is a true labor of love, 18 months in the making — and it shows.

The episode, titled “Three Directors,” tells the story of Angela firing Peter from the brewery in the style of three different big-screen visionaries: Quentin Tarantino, Wes Anderson and Michael Bay. And while there’s obviously a bigger payoff for viewers familiar with the directors’ work, you needn’t fancy yourself a film buff to enjoy the episode.

“We tried to write it in a way where even a casual movie viewer would still get a lot of the jokes and references,
