FX keeps murdering my shows. Stop murdering my shows, FX.

FX has cancelled the funny and bold Sex&Drugs&Rock&Roll after only two seasons in their ongoing purge. What did I ever do to you, FX? Why are you trying to hurt me?

ABC cancelled Mistresses, but this is neither a surprise nor a great loss, frankly.

Apparently there is some talk that Hulu could pick up Tyrant. Fingers crossed, guys.

And Hell’s Kitchen is going to be around for at least two more screamy seasons, donkeys.

Westworld is making sure they have all of their evil animatronic cowboys in a row, and have apparently plotted out at least five seasons and figured out how they want it to end. So I guess no one will be able to accuse them of pulling a Lost. (Even though the Lost series finale was really good and no, for the last God damned time, they weren’t dead the whole time.)

Black Mirror — you’re obsessed, right? (If not, go catch up on Netflix, because clearly you’ve never seen it.) New episodes hit Netflix on October 12: here are descriptions of all 6.


Mike Day, the Saturday Night Live writer responsible for last season’s funniest sketch, is joining the cast. Which sketch? This sketch:

Jessica Walter is getting our hopes up for another season of Arrested Development.

Christopher Eccleston is all sad he didn’t stick around longer on Doctor Who, apparently.

Uh-oh, Kenya Barris has been accused of stealing black-ish.

The creative arts Emmys were handed out yesterday, and there were a bunch of important wins: Tina and Amy won a joint Emmy; Archer grabbed the Emmy for Outstanding Animated Series; Game of Thrones officially became the most-awarded drama in Emmy history; but we’re happiest for RuPaul winning best Reality Show Host.

Tim Gunn wrote a piece about how it is shameful designers don’t create clothes for normal sized women in which he tore Project Runway Season 14’s winner a new one: “Ashley Nell Tipton won the contest with the show’s first plus-size collection. But even this achievement managed to come off as condescending. I’ve never seen such hideous clothes in my life: bare midriffs; skirts over crinoline, which give the clothes, and the wearer, more volume; see-through skirts that reveal panties; pastels, which tend to make the wearer look juvenile; and large-scale floral embellishments that shout ‘prom.’ Her victory reeked of tokenism. One judge told me that she was ‘voting for the symbol’ and that these were clothes for a ‘certain population.’ I said they should be clothes all women want to wear. I wouldn’t dream of letting any woman, whether she’s a size 6 or a 16, wear them.” Wow, don’t hold back, Tim.

The trailer for the new HBO Sarah Jessica Parker series, Divorce, looks pretty great. Did I mention it’s from Sharon Horgan of Catastrophe?:

And here’s our first look at Crazy Ex-Girlfriend. Get excited, you horny monsters:

Here’s something to look forward to: Vince Gilligan is making a limited series about cult leader Jim Jones for HBO.

Robb Stark is going to be in the Amazon pilot, Strange New Things, which is somehow not the same thing as Stranger Things.
