It’s safe to say that you know who Oprah is. The iconic talk-show host has worn many hats, from actress to producer to philanthropist to media mogul. As an actress, she’s racked up some impressive credits. Her debut performance in The Color Purple landed her an Oscar nomination, and she’s done critically acclaimed work in Jonathan Demme’s criminally underrated drama Beloved. Having retired from hosting her wildly popular show, she returned to acting more regularly, with a SAG Award-nominated turn in Lee Daniels’s The Butler, followed by her first team-up with Ava DuVernay in Selma. Her voice can also be heard in Disney’s The Princess and the Frog. As Mrs. Which, she becomes a full celestial being who guides Meg in her journey to find her father.

Baskets (10 p.m., FX) – In the Season 3 premiere, Christine (Louis Anderson) becomes president and CEO of Baskets Family Rodeo (even though she’s never seen a rodeo before) and gives Chip (Zach Galifianakis) his first full-time job since Arby’s.

For one thing, Baskets' insistence on showcasing the corporate side of suburban comfort highlights the stupidity of Chip's despair. In trying to join an old tradition of free American train-hopping rebels, he keeps running up against the fact that there's just not much for him to rebel against.

This might be the best show I’ve ever seen at balancing an array of comedy styles with a genuinely sweet melancholy. It’s truly a confounding delight and I wish it would never leave my screen. But it was also deeply sad from minute one, and Louie Anderson’s performance as Christine was never treated <...> - by Uproxx [Alan Sepinwall]
What’s certain is that Chip finds a home with the travelers, who as it turn out, make their living performing on the street (shout-out to director Jonathan Krisel, who manages to give these performance sequences a dreamy beauty and warmth while keeping them appropriately grimy). The group is at first put off by <...> - by New York Observer [Thomas Batten]
A sad clown story that's actually about a sad clown, and the first great series of 2016, returns for a second season.
