License to thrill

Robert Rodriguez, who seems to be spending more time these days curating films than creating them, presents his 10 favorite James Bond films in a marathon entitled "Shaken Not Stirred." The selection, repeated throughout the weekend, kicks off with "From Russia With Love." 5 a.m. Friday, El Rey Network

Totally tubular

In a blatant attempt to gain more traction in the social-media world, "The Late, Late Show With James Corden" will tape its entire show inside YouTube Space LA with a guest list that includes "The Slow Mo Guys" and beauty consultant Kandee Johnson. Any chance "Double Rainbow Guy" will sit in with the band? 11:37 p.m. Friday, WCCO, Ch. 4

Not necessarily the news

Patrick Stewart channels his inner Benny Hill in "Blunt Talk," an edgy new comedy straight off the Seth MacFarlane assembly line. Stewart plays a cable-news commentator who will remind you of Piers Morgan after one too many gin martinis. For a Q&A with the "Star Trek" captain, check out Saturday's Variety section. 8 p.m. Saturday, Starz

Women on top

It's not too late to jump on the Tig Notaro bandwagon by watching her new stand-up special, "Tig Notaro: Boyish Girl Interrupted" (9 p.m. Sat., HBO), but if you want to get ahead of the pack, check out "Natasha Leggero: Live at Bimbo's" (10 p.m. Sat., Comedy Central), an up 'n' comer so raunchy she makes Amy Schumer blush.
