Curb Your Enthusiasm returns and Avenue 5 takes flight

Curb Your Enthusiasm returns and Avenue 5 takes flight

Here’s what’s happening in the world of television for Sunday, January 19. All times are Eastern.

Top picks

Avenue 5 (HBO, 10 p.m., series premiere) and Curb Your Enthusiasm (HBO, 10:30 p.m., 10th season premiere): Veep may have cursed its way off into that good night, but Armando Iannucci is still writing television’s best obscenities—and this time, he’s doing it in space.

Take that, Quibi: Julia Louis-Dreyfus signs development deal with Apple TV+

In what we can only imagine is terrible news for the people over at Quibi—i.e., the other internet content provider that seems bound and determined to scoop up all your favorite folks, no matter the cost—Variety reports this weekend that Julia Louis-Dreyfus has signed an overall deal to develop new projects at Apple TV+.

Louis-Dreyfus is, of course, fresh off her 6-season, Emmy-gobbling run...

Saturday Night Social: This Florence Pugh Mukbang Saved My Life

Saturday Night Social: This Florence Pugh Mukbang Saved My Life

Unlike voting, which is a right, blogging for Jezebel is one of my life’s greatest privileges. However, sometimes even waking up to do something you love requires a little bit of external motivation.

For me, today, that motivation was delivered via this Vogue.com video where Florence Pugh mukbangs (participates in a mukbang? does a muckbang of?) 11 proper English dishes while wearing a banana...

This Custom Lego Version of Echo Base Is Ready for the Empire's Siege

This Custom Lego Version of Echo Base Is Ready for the Empire's Siege

The sheer ambition of Lego creators never ceases to amaze me. Far from being satisfied with what Lego’s sets provide, these sculptors create incredible things. Like this version of Echo Base from The Empire Strikes Back, which is ready for battle.

Hopefully, this version will have a better fight than the one in the film, however. Clocking in at over 16,000 pieces, this Echo Base, created...

'Shop Contest: Patrick Stewart, Winners!

Last week I found a great photo of Patrick Stewart and decided to create a ‘shop contest based on it. The results were better than I expected! Let’s ENGAGE with some content.. (Get it, like Star Trek..?)

Our winning image this week was made by peachflavored who created an image so simple and yet so perfect that I was angry that I didn’t think of it first. Good job!

How to Watch the SpaceX's Falcon9 Blow Up Over the Atlantic Ocean Live Sunday

SpaceX was expected to perform an escape test for the Falcon9 rocket Saturday, but had to reschedule the event to Sunday “due to poor splashdown and recovery weather.” Instead, the test has been rescheduled for Sunday, with the 6-hour test window opening up officially at 8am ET.

The test is meant to “demonstrate Crew Dragon’s ability to safely escape the Falcon 9 rocket in the event of a...

Uncensored Photos of the 2020 Women's March, Just in Case the National Archives Get Their Hands on Them

Uncensored Photos of the 2020 Women's March, Just in Case the National Archives Get Their Hands on Them

Although the National Archives has today apologized for their censoring of an image of the 2017 Women’s March  and removed the photo in question, promising to replace it with the original, unaltered picture, you can never be too careful.

Which is why we’ve collected some images from marches that have today taken place all across the country, marking the fourth annual Women’s March since 2017....

The Very First Dodge Viper, Owned By Lee Iacocca, Sells For $285,500

The first production Dodge Viper was sold at Bonhams’ Scottsdale auction this past week. VIN 00001 brought in almost ten times the typical price of a first-generation Viper. Not only is it the first, but it was also owned by Lee Iacocca who was the chairman of Chrysler when the car went on sale.

The OG Vipers had 400 horsepower coming from the eight-liter V10. Four hundred horsepower is...

A Real Prize: On Her Birthday, Trump Administration Takes Aim at Michelle Obama’s School Nutrition Standards

Donald Trump is most likely the worst person to get a gift from; especially on your birthday.

Ask Michelle Obama, who saw — like everyone else — The Trump Administration propose loosening her signature school lunch standards yesterday.

The Department of Agriculture’s proposed rule would give schools more latitude to decide how much fruit to offer during breakfast and what types of vegetables to...

If You're The Person Who Stole This Famous Artwork Can You Please Just Admit It Already

Ok so maybe I’m just overly excited about the potential Knives Out sequel , but something about this story isn’t adding up. A previously thought-to-be-lost-forever, priceless painting was recently discovered hiding in the literal walls of the building it was it was stolen from almost 23 years ago.

There Are Too Many Screens, Time To Go Back To Gauges

There Are Too Many Screens, Time To Go Back To Gauges

Byton had an unveiling at CES this year that went over, among other things, the partnered content it is going to shove into its massive 48-inch screen, and I couldn’t help but think that this is a step in the wrong direction.

There was a time not so long ago when replacing the gauges in a car with a digital screen was the upscale thing to do. Cheap cars had gauges. Expensive cars had screens....

Randomness In Video Games Is Not All The Same

Randomness In Video Games Is Not All The Same

Random chance mechanics in video games can be frustrating. Missing a 90% shot in XCOM, when you really need it to hit, can cause some players to throw their controller or rage quit. But not all randomness found in video games is the same and how developers use randomness can make you scream or cheer.

In a recent video from Game Maker’s Toolkit, the topic of randomness is examined and broken...

Learn a New Language While Playing Games Using This App

When it comes to learning a new language, Duolingo is typically my go-to. I’ve reached a point where I’ve determined I’m probably never going to be entirely fluent in another language, but whenever I travel somewhere where I don’t typically speak the native language I try to get the basics down before I get there. That typically means that in the weeks leading up to any big trip, I’ll often...

You Might Be Able to Put Your Airline Elite Status on Hold if You Can't Use It This Year

Elite airline status can be great to have. Having status on an airline typically offers perks like upgraded seats, free checked bags, and earlier boarding groups. It’s a great perk for having flown with an airline a great deal the year before. But what if you flew a bunch this year, but something like having a newborn at home is going to prevent you from hitting the friendly skies for the...

Garbage trucks are amazing. They work in continuous stop and go driving in every possible environment, from incredible desert heat to being cold-soaked in temperatures so low that it doesn’t matter if we’re talking Celcius or Fahrenheit. They’re driven on icy roads with the tires kicking salt and rocks up all over the complex hydraulically...

The National Archives Honors Women By Censoring Them

The National Archives Honors Women By Censoring Them

If we’re being honest with ourselves it’s only fair to admit that, at the end of the day, the National Archives are big snooze. Having lived in Washington, DC for nearly half a decade I made a solid two and a half attempts to make it through the Archives and appreciate the pieces of our nation’s history that are preserved there (I say half because once I didn’t even make it through the front...
