Here’s what’s happening in the world of television for Tuesday, May 1. All times are Eastern.


Top pick

John Mulaney: Kid Gorgeous At Radio City (Netflix): “What a historic and beautiful and deeply haunted building this is,” John Mulaney says at the top of his latest hour of stand-up, attacking Radio City Music Hall with the poise and energy of an artist at the top of his game playing one of the most hallowed stages in American showbiz. What follows is a special that manages to find some intimacy within what was once the world’s largest auditoriums, while never once losing sight that, holy shit, Mulaney’s playing Radio City. They talk about that place in a Steely Dan song! What a perfect full-circle moment for 21st-century stand-up’s premier Steely Dan fan. Dennis Perkins has the review, while Danette Chavez has an interview with Mulaney, in which he tells the secret, Hugh Jackman-adjacent origin story of “Lobster Diner.”
