Plus basketball and Tonight Show clips in between time spent outdoors.

It’s a three day weekend, y’all.

What We’re Watching Today

In honor of college graduation season, Jimmy Fallon and Dwayne Johnson gave a commencement speech set in…1989. 1989 was a good year. Because that’s when I was born.


What We’re Watching on Saturday

It’s Rockets vs. Warriors Game 3 and resident basketball guru Max Rivlin-Nadler says”James Harden played an insane game Thursday night, bringing the Rockets all the way back against a Warriors team that was cruising to a commanding 2-0 lead in the conference championship. With the seconds dwindling down, Harden was poised to win the game at the last second, stealing the game for the Rockets. But something supernatural occurred. Harden passed the ball to a bumbling Dwight Howard, and when Howard passed back, Harden couldn’t handle it. The seconds ran out. Harden slumped to the ground in agony. The Warriors were victorious. Harden knew he had been cursed. Cursed by Lil B. Lil B the Based God. ” (TNT, 9 EST)

What We’re Watching on Sunday

After last week’s absolutely brutal ending on Game of Thrones, we’re hoping that things get less bleak in Westeros tonight. Unlikely, but we can dream. (HBO, 9 EST).
