Griswolds, Bears, Boxing and More
By Elise DeVoe
Get ready for Wednesday—I’m foregoing the usual chronological order because this week it’s going to be one epic day for film and television, so you’re going to need to plan the day carefully.
First up, everyone's favorite ill-fated family on holiday is back. Ed Helms and Christina Applegate star as the next generation of Griswolds in Vacation. Beverly D’Angelo and Chevy Chase round out the cast as Ellen and Clark Griswold from the original Vacation comedies.
Wednesday is also a big day for unscripted TV. truTV's The Carbonaro Effect is back with an all-new season. Magician and Comedian Michael Carbonaro makes the ordinary become extraordinary time and again, much to the delight of unsuspecting members of the public.
The Carbonaro Effect is followed by the series premiere of Fameless, a new show from David Spade. Each week features a group of people looking for their 15 minutes of fame who believe they've been cast on a reality show. Spoiler: it's not really a reality show. Improv actors create outrageous scenarios that test the patience of everyone not in on the joke.
But there's more! Also on Wednesday, Nicole Richie is back with a new season of Candidly Nicole. This season, no topic is off limits. And it's going to be very stylish.
Now that we've got Wednesday out of the way, let's rewind back to tomorrow. It's World Championship Boxing on HBO with Sergey Kovalev vs. Nadjib Mohammedi, and a patient Mohammedi is finally getting his shot at the Russian transplant in Las Vegas.
On Sunday, MLB on TBS continues when the Los Angeles Dodgers take on the New York Mets.
And Rick and Morty are back for Season 2 Sunday evening. This season, the whole family is dragged into Rick's chaotic world as new threats and mysteries of his secret past are revealed.
A trio of tech-savvy Bear brothers takes over Cartoon Network on Monday with the series premiere of We Bare Bears, the newest original animated series from Cartoon Network Studios. Series creator Daniel Chong discussed his new show with us recently – read the Q&A.
