Retta, the no-nonsense regular on Bravo’s Girlfriends’ Guide to Divorce, wins EW’s award for Best Live TV Tweeter (Okay, this should be a thing). Here, the 46-year-old behind @unforRETTAble shares the shows she treats herself to.

Late Night With Seth Meyers (NBC)

“Seth takes a closer look and will talk about whatever f—ery is going on in the political atmosphere in a way that makes sense and isn’t pretentious. He’s found his comfort zone. He doesn’t stand up for his monologue and knows his main goal is sitting at that desk and reporting, as opposed to trying to do ‘ba-dum-dum-ching.'”

The Catch (ABC)

“I love a sexy caper show, and I love shows about con artists. I’m drawn to TV that is aesthetically pleasing, with pretty clothes and bright colors in the sets — this series does all of that for me. And any show that has the foresight to hire Mrs. Patmore [Lesley Nicol] from Downton Abbey as a crime boss is genius!”

Marvel’s Jessica Jones (Netflix)

“I was shooting a movie in Atlanta and I watched this for the three days I was there. I thought Kilgrave [David Tennant] was an amazing villian. I loved him, I hated him — I just couldn’t get enough of him. It’s a special kind of trickery to get someone to be hated and yet I didn’t want him to leave. I mean, he was just so heartless.”
