HBO isn’t going to take a chance airing its Sunday night slate against the Oscars.

The network announced on Tuesday that the new Judd Apatow-produced series Crashing, Reese Witherspoon-Nicole Kidman drama Big Little Lies, and final season of Girls will be available on Friday via HBO Go and HBO Now. It’s a smart move, especially since it’s trying to promote two new shows. 

Episode 2 of Crashing features a road trip with Pete Holmes, Artie Lange, and T.J. Miller, as well as a pepper-spray incident with Gina Gershon.
