StreamSavvy Guide: What to watch January 19, 2017

StreamSavvy’s expert TV picks for the great TV from January 19, 2017. Watch Zach Galifianakis in Baskets as Season 2 kicks off on FX. Here is the daily rec from January 19 and how to stream the show.


FX continues to tear it up dropping great show after great show. Tonight it’s the return of Zach Galifianakis to the TV screen with Season 2 of Baskets.

Watch Zach Galifianakis in Baskets: Season 2 premiere on FX - stream on Sling TV

Watch Zach Galifianakis in Baskets: Season Premiere

We love Zach Galifianakis. There can never be enough Zach G in the world. So it’ll be rad to watch Zach Galifianakis in Baskets Season 2 and watch what little nuggets he will bring when the FX show premieres tonight.

The dark comedy that flew under the radar in Season 1 brings you the laughs but actually dives and wrestles with issues in a deeper way than most shows that make the attempt. LA Times buys into Basket‘s outstanding job of working through darker themes of “self-loathing, adult-life crisis and sick relationships better than much more hyped series such as ‘Animals,’ ‘Love’ and ‘Girls’.”

Save Baskets to your favorites on the StreamSavvy mobile app so you never miss another episode.

Chip Baskets (Zach Galifianakis) attempts to chase his dream and become a French clown. Failing out of a prestigious clown college and hitting broke, Baskets moves back home to Bakersfield. He gets an ice bucket challenge to the face when his only opportunity is a rodeo clown and he is forced to deal with the reality of family and dreams slipping away. (FX 10/9c)

How to watch: you can stream the FX channel tonight and watch Zach Galifianakis in Baskets in the season premiere on Sling TV with the Blue package or with Playstation Vue (all tiers).

If you missed Season 1, you can binge it up on Hulu now.

Season Two Premiere: Schitt’s Creek

The Canadians are just so nice. Nice enough to bless the world with Schitt’s Creek, a sitcom that aired for the first time in 2015 on Canadian television. It’s been picked up by POP in the US, and Season 2 kicks off tonight.

If you’re not all up in Canadian television, the show follows Johnny Rose (Eugene Levy), a wealthy dude who made his cash in a video store empire, and his wife Moira (Catherine O’Hara), a “has been” soap opera star. After the pair lose all their money to stupid investments, like video stores, they are forced to rebuild their lives in their only remaining asset. The asset is the blink-and-you’ll-miss-it town of Schitt’s Creek, Ontario, that the Rose pair purchased as a gag gift for the birthday of one of their children. The plot gets even better since they are forced to live together with their stereotypical, entitled 20-something kids in two adjacent rooms of a rundown motel. Maple syrup, hockey, niceness, and now Season 2 of Schitt’s Creek. Thanks Canada. (POP 8/7c)
