Marriage Story

HOW/WHEN & WHERE TO WATCH: Streaming on Netflix

After a limited theatrical run, writer-director Noah Baumbach‘s exquisite divorce dramedy — and major Oscar contender — arrives on Netflix, so you can cry in the privacy of your own home. At once a powerful family drama, a lacerating look at the divorce legal system, and the kind of painfully uncomfortable comedy at which Baumbach excelsMarriage Story stars Adam Driver and Scarlett Johansson as Charlie and Nicole, a husband and wife going through a bicoastal separation. As they march deeper into the weeds of divorce, their dynamic, and tug-of-war with their young son, become ever more heated. Packed with supporting players doing top-notch work — Laura Dern! Alan Alda! Merritt Wever! — Marriage Story will make you laugh, cry, gasp, and marvel at the most human movie of the year. —Tyler Aquilina

Saturday Night Live

HOW/WHEN & WHERE TO WATCH: 11:30 p.m. on NBC

The studio audience should get loud for Jennifer Lopez, who returns to Studio 8H for her third time as host of the late-night sketch show. She might’ve been showcasing her dramatic (and pole-dancing) skills in this year’s Hustlers, which has catapulted her into the awards race, but J. Lo has proven comedy chops as well. The time seems perfect for a “Hustlers bloopers” or “stars auditioning for Hustlers” sketch. And we’d pay good dinero to see her costar Cardi B drop by for a lil cameo. —Gerrad Hall

Supergirl

HOW/WHEN & WHERE TO WATCH: 8 p.m. on The CW

Elizabeth Tulloch connected even more with Lois Lane in “Crisis on Infinite Earths.” When the crossover begins, Clark (Tyler Hoechlin) and Lois are living on Argo with their newborn son. As a recent new mom herself, Tulloch could relate to Lois’ arc in the epic saga. “There is a protectiveness and a strength that I brought to the character this time around that I also probably have developed personally just being responsible for another life,” Tulloch tells EW. The five-hour event, which begins with Supergirl, is shaping up to be the Arrowverse’s most ambitious event, and it sounds like fans definitely won’t want to miss it. Says Tulloch, “There were a couple of scenes that I got to be a part of that I felt will go down in Arrowverse history as being incredibly important, incredibly iconic scenes.” —Chancellor Agard

The L Word: Generation Q

HOW/WHEN & WHERE TO WATCH: 10 p.m. on Showtime

Series Debut
Ten years after airing its final episode (is anything really “final” anymore?), The L Word is back and with a slightly longer title, adding Generation Q to the mix. Still focusing on the lives of Los Angelenos Bette, Alice, and Shane, there are also some new faces: Dani, Micah, Finley, Sophie, and Gigi. While Bette’s partner Tina is not in the show, their now-teenage daughter Angie is (played by newcomer Jordan Hull). This new iteration will, naturally, focus on their lives both personal (love, sex, heartbreak, etc.) and professional, things will be a bit different than in 2009 because a lot has changed in the decade since. And to that, we say: “F-word, yeah!” —Gerrad Hall

Madam Secretary

HOW/WHEN & WHERE TO WATCH: 10:30 p.m. on CBS

Series Finale
President Elizabeth McCord (Téa Leoni) launches a major political initiative (talk about some serious wish fulfillment, creator Barbara Hall!) and gets to play mother of the bride in the series finale of Madam Secretary. Though the real-life White House is under fire these days, this fictitious one won’t be. “We don’t go out with a bang,” explains costar Tim Daly (Henry McCord) of the episode titled “Leaving the Station.” “It’s kind of like a warm embrace.” —Lynette Rice
