What’s going on in film and television: November 11-15

- Comedy Central has cancelled “The Jeselnik Offensive” after two seasons. The late-night show, which was co-created and hosted by acerbic stand-up comedian Anthony Jeselnik, focused on Jeselnik’s twisted takes on different timely topics. For a cable audience, this was some seriously dark humor.

- Fans rejoice, “Downtown Abbey” has been renewed for a fifth season, which doesn’t come as a surprise, since the finale for Season 4 hit a ratings high by drawing 9.8 million viewers.

- “Thor: The Dark World” made $85.7 million this weekend, blowing the competition away and assertively assuming the number one spot at the box office. That is a more than 30% improvement on the first “Thor” film’s $65.7 million. Unless by some divine act of the cinema gods, “The Dark World” will remain number one for its second weekend, November 15-17. It will run into a buzz saw on November 22, though, when “Catching Fire” drops.

- This is the weekend to get caught up on whatever movies you haven’t seen in theaters. Only one new film, “The Best Man Holiday,” is being released at Century 20 at El Con. The Loft will begin to show “Blue is the Warmest Color,” a French film that took home the top honor, the Palme d’Or, at the 2013 Cannes Film Festival. However, the mature and graphic content of the film will not be for everyone. If you haven’t checked out “Captain Phillips” or “Gravity” yet, this is the perfect weekend to do so!
