From prom in Mystic Falls, to Tom Cruise’s new Sci-fi adventure, we’ve got your pop culture planner for the week. Check it out below!
MONDAY, April 15
Burning Love: Burning Down the House, new episode available online
Ken Marino’s hilarious Bachelor parody never fails to deliver the laughs. It’s got some some of the coolest comedians –Natasha Leggero, Michael Ian Black, Rob Delaney, June Diane Raphael – acting completely ridiculous. Contestants are competing for $900, so the stakes are pretty high. Watch the first episode here to get excited.
TUESDAY, April 16
Fall Out Boy’s Save Rock and Roll is released
Listen to the Save Rock and Roll alongside Paramore’s self-titled new album and feel the warm nostalgia wash over you.
WEDNESDAY, April 17
Southland, 10 p.m. TNT, season finale
This critically-acclaimed cop show hasn’t really been able to grab an audience. Still, this episode promises to be incredible (and also incredibly heartbreaking). If you’re a Jon Cooper (Michael Cudlitz) fan, it’s a must-watch.
THURSDAY, April 18
The Vampire Diaries, 8 p.m., The CW
It’s prom! There are some pretty steamy moments between Stefan and Elena. Caroline is looking amazing (and really deserves a good night after basically planning the whole thing). Oh, and Elena still doesn’t have her humanity back. Come for the dresses, stay for the romance.
FRIDAY, April 19
Oblivion opens in theaters
Tom Cruise’s post-apocalyptic Earth movie is not to be confused with Will Smiths’ post-apocalyptic Earth movie. But, can we all agree that Andrea Riseborough is bringing it in this trailer?
SATURDAY, April 20
Smash, 9 p.m., NBC
Tonight, Bombshell opens on Broadway with Ivy as Marilyn. As ratings can only point to a death sentence for Smash, it’s sad to look back on the greatest number of the show, ”Let Me Be Your Star”, sung with such passion and by two great performers. What kind of show will Bombshell be now? Maybe 50 people will watch and find out.
SUNDAY, April 21
Mad Men, 10 p.m., AMC
Mad Men is notoriously tight on spoilers, but we can reveal one thing: Joan continues to be the best.
