The best new show of the fall (so far) was just renewed for a second season, so we’ve got that going for us.

Atlanta and Better Things have already been renewed for a second season on FX, which is terrific news. If you’re not watching Atlanta, you’re going to want to get on that.

Oh my God, Steve from Stranger Things met his son Jean-Ralphio from Parks and Recreation and my head just exploded.

The new season of Salem, now with 100% more Marilyn Manson, debuts on November 2.

Happy birthday, George R.R. Martin! I hope you spend it finishing those damn books, buddy!

Fun facts: CBS has won the ratings in daytime TV for 30 years in a row, but NBC has won the nightly news for 20 years in a row.

Joss Whedon got a bunch of TV and movie actors together to make this PSA urging people to register to vote — specifically against Trump, and it’s funny and clever, just like everything Joss Whedon does. And it’s my blog so I can post political things if I want.

Netflix intends to be half original programming within the next few years. Hey, I hear Firefly might be available to fill some of that space…

You probably don’t know this about me, but I’m mildly obsessed with cults in general, Scientology specifically. So between the news that Jason Lee has left the “church” (news that was broken in a blog about Denton, TX [?] where he now lives [?]) and now the story that Leah Remini has landed a series about Scientology at A&E, this is a pretty big week for your trusty blogger.
