The catch of the day is the premiere of “The Alienist,” on TNT at 9 p.m. and adapted from Caleb Carr’s gruesome but captivating 1990s best seller. Dakota Fanning is terrific as is the rest of the cast in a period tale about serial murders in 1896 New York City. Steven Soderbergh is almost always worth our attention. Last year, he worked on a show called “Mosaic” that was delivered through an app, enabling the viewer to determine what would happen to the characters. Now the show comes to HBO.
Arts critic Judith Green never let go or gave upMissing an event was something that Judith Green never did. During her years as a theater and dance critic for the San Jose Mercury News, many of her friends worried about the number of times she would tear back and forth on 280 between San Jose and San Francisco. And the number of times she'd tell us how she almost fell asleep returning home after a late dance performance, concert or play. And the few times she actually did fall asleep at the wheel.
Catch of the day is the eighth season of “Portlandia” at 10 p.m. on IFC, starring Carrie Brownstein and Fred Armisen. Alas, this is the beginning of the end of this endlessly quirky and charming series. Brownstein and Armisen have decided to bring it to a close while it’s still great. My bet is that it would continue to be great if further seasons were ordered, but maybe there will be a reunion movie somewhere down the road.
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".
