  1. 1.
    Thirty minutes: Full Frontal with Samantha Bee
    A lot has been made of the fact that Samantha Bee is set to become the first female host of a late-night satirical news show. Rightly so. We should also be making much of the fact that Samantha Bee is hilarious. Let’s hope her show is, too. Premieres Monday. (thecomedynetwork.ca)

    Three minutes, fifty-four seconds: Encore#
    Graham Nash told Rolling Stone that writing songs for his coming album, This Path Tonight, due out in April, was heavily influenced by the split from his wife of 38 years – which explains the sad, reflective vibe of this newly released song from the album. (soundcloud.com)
  3. 3.
    Ten minutes: The Walter White of Wichita
    If that headline doesn’t grab you, the first few paragraphs of this story about a former science fair champion who figured out how to make an opiate that is 50 times stronger than heroin surely will. (fusion.net)
  4. 4.
    Two minutes, eighteen seconds: Me Before You
    The adaptation of Jojo Moyes novel about a young woman who gets a job caring for a rich, disabled young man looks completely engineered to make you weep. Judging by the new trailer, you’re going to need a crying towel. (http://mebeforeyoumovie.com/)
