Willie Nelson may have the touring schedule of a 29-year-old musician, but the country music legend is actually celebrating his 85th birthday this weekend, a milestone that more than justifies a marathon retrospective that kicks off with a sit-down with Dan Rather, followed by highlights from Farm Aid 2017 and various concerts.

She shoots, she scores
Rise has quickly ascended to the top in terms of quality dramas on network TV, thanks largely to a spitball performance by Rosie Perez.
