SHOWTIME continues its Sunday night powerhouse programming block with the premieres of brand new seasons of hit comedy series WEEDS and EPISODES. At 10 PM, on the eighth and final season of WEEDS, the wait from last season’s cliffhanger is over – we’ll finally learn who got smoked. While the victim is rushed to the hospital, the Botwins grapple with the tragedy and hypothesize on the shooter’s identity. For a sneak peek of the first episode, visit:


Immediately following, at 10:30 PM, EPISODES picks up four months after the end of the first season, where the impact of Matt (series star Matt LeBlanc) and Beverly’s (Tamzin Greig) tryst - and her betrayal of husband Sean (Stephen Manghan) - is still being felt. But the trio must remain on their best professional behavior, however, as they are forced to work together on their show Pucks! Network president Merc Lapidus (John Pankow) throws a big party at his house to celebrate the premiere. But at the event, Matt finds himself in a most compromising position when he’s seated next to Merc’s blind wife, Jamie (Genevieve O’Reilly). For a sneak peak of the new season, visit:

    I hate that Weeds is ending. I don’t care what people say, it is still the best comedy on TV.

  • Tommy

    Look forward to ‘Weeds’!

    But come on Showtime! Make a friggin decision on “The Big C” already!

  • joss

    i already watch premier it was good actualy

  • Rex

    Best 1-2 punch comedy lineup on TV right now. Shame it might be the last season for both.

  • Patricia L

    Love EPISODES!!!
    It’s one of those shows that sneaks up on you and before you know it you totally care about the characters. It’s smart and clever and Matt Leblanc is a revelation. If you haven’t seen it give it a try and stick with it. You’ll be glad you did.

    I love Weeds, but I’m glad this is final season. And i really hope that Nancy and Shane dies in series finale, they really deserve it.

    Never could get into WEEDS, I’m going to sample EPISODES, but the BIG C, NURSE JACKIE, TRUE BLOOD and SHAMELESS are all incredible. Cable series are SO much better than anything on the big 4 networks which I rarely watch anymore.

    Episodes season 2 is nearly finished airing here in the uk…
    I’m suprised we got it first.
    It’s been much better then season 1 but the ratings are down a good bit, so I doubt we’ll get a 3rd season

    I’ve heard it’s BBC that calls the shots with EPISODES, and not Showtime

  • davie

    The first 5 minutes of the Weeds premiere is pretty heart pounding. It was a pretty good episode…even if the writers pretty much crap all over the Nancy Botwin character…not that she maybe doesn’t deserve it..but wow what a way to treat your antagonist. Once you watch you’ll know what I mean

  • Annonimous

    BBC already aired 7 episodes of “Episodes”. Torrents followed. It’s hilarious.

  • Julie

    Really looking forward to Episodes – a friend was raving about it a few weeks ago, and then by chance last week Movie Network (who airs it in Canada) had a Season 1 marathon before the new ones start. I PVR’d them all, and have watched up through Ep 5….and it really is brilliant. Will watch the last two tonight, then I’m all ready for S2.
