Title: Binge-watcher Clive James
Post by Kevin Cryan on Today at 15:53
The Guardian

Books in 2016: a literary calendar (http://www.theguardian.com/books/2016/jan/01/books-literary-calendar-2016)

Friday 1 January 2016
Clockwise from centre: Seamus Heaney, Leonard Nimoy, William Shatner, Jhumpa Lahiri; Karl Ove Knausgaard, John le Carré, Kate Tempest, Kei Miller and Han Kang.

Play All: A Binge-Watcher’s Notebook by Clive James (Yale) James made his name as a TV critic and he returns to the medium in a “joyful encounter” with box sets and on demand channels, arguing for the virtues of The Sopranos, House of Cards and other prestigious series: they hold the position in our culture that classic literature did in previous times.

I cannot find it in the Yale catalogue, but it's early days yet.
