Such Hancock staples as "Overture," "Actual Proof," "Come Running to Me" and "Cantaloupe Island" are featured. Also included is a tune previously unreleased and unrecorded. […]

Snatched

HBO | 8:00 pm
It sounded like an inspired idea when Amy Schumer coaxed Goldie Hawn out of retirement to play her mother in this 2017 comedy, Hawn’s first movie role in 15 years. Schumer stars as recently fired and romantically bruised Emily Middleton, who persuades her mom to join her on a healing trip to Ecuador. Comic madness ensues as the two women are kidnapped. Joan Cusack and Ike Barinholtz co-star in the film, which critics hammered for its limp screenplay. […]

Progressive political gadfly Bill Maher returns from a two-month break to begin his 16th season of analyzing current political events from a wry satirical perspective.
