Here's what happened in the world of television on Sunday, November 17th. All times are eastern.
The Crown (Netflix, 3:01 pm, full third season): Today marks a significant opportunity in the fictitious life of the fictitious version of Her Majesty Elizabeth II, The Grace of God, the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland and its other realms and territories. Queen, Head of the Commonwealth. Defender of the faith. It is not her ascent, her marriage, her coronation, the birth of one of her children or her silver, ruby, gold, diamond or sapphire anniversary. It's not even a day to discuss horse meat with Porchie. No, today is the day that Her Majesty officially becomes Olivia Colman.
It's a testament to the miracle that Claire Foy's achievement was that we can not call Colman's arrival an upgrade. This is simply the transfer of a baton (or a crown, as we suspect) from one very good performer to another. And Colman is not alone in the cast: Tobias Menzies takes on Matt Smith, Helena Bonham Carter for Vanessa Kirby, Charles Dance for Greg Wise, Derek Jacobi for Alex Jennings, the list goes on. Here's Caroline Siede for the season two finale in 201
The season ends with a final family portrait reminiscent of this era of Crown Actor . Philip acts as a householder to bring order, and Elizabeth, who was previously a bit detached from the chaos around her, is more grateful than ever to have her husband by her side. She grabs his hand and smiles. Her family is complete, and as the Queen Mother noted in "Dear Mrs. Kennedy," she can now think about middle age. Only she will look a bit different if she does.
One person who has not passed the baton is Caroline Siede, first of her name, recapper of the ornate Netflix series and Defender of the Rome Com . Her first two flashbacks will be in the season finale today and tomorrow.

John Oliver will definitely be back. All he has to worry about is that he's somehow ahead in his season finale:
