Welcome to the weekend, a time when the world is your oyster and there are literally dozens of hours to catch up on all the great TV you missed during the week. I’ve got a few recommendations for what to stream this weekend. First up: a sitcom episode that might be my favorite TV moment of 2018, so far.
In a last-ditch effort to save the ill-fated Great American Baking Show, ABC might bring two of the judges from the original British version of the show — Mary Berry and Paul Hollywood — together for a fourth season of the cooking competition. Berry and Hollywood starred in seven seasons of The Great British Bake Off before the show switched networks and Mary jumped ship. The two pastry experts have both appeared on the American iterations of the Bake Off, but never together in the same season.
Fred Armisen and Carrie Brownstein’s hit IFC comedy show Portlandia is officially back on the air for its final season. Last night’s premiere included sketches about middle-aged rockers, obnoxious podcast hosts, and yuppies who wanted to get away from it all by living in a VW Westfalia van. And in this new teaser for a forthcoming episode, the Portlandia team tackles the art of preparing for natural disasters.
@DaveThackeray@netflix In no particular order:
— "Jeremiah Tower: The Last Magnificent"
— "Chef's Table: Dominique Crenn"
— "Samurai Gourmet: Mackerel in the Morning"
Hope that helps. So much great food stuff on Netflix these days!
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
