Here’s your nauseating Trump moment of the day: On The Wendy Williams Show back in 2013, Donald and Ivanka Trump were asked what is their favorite thing that they have in common. Ivanka, a human being, answered, “real estate or golf.” Her father? “Well, I was going to say sex, but I can’t relate that to her.” The vomiting begins around 2:07.
Clips from the never-aired E! reality series, Trump Town Girls, have made it to the light of day. The show, which was also from three years ago, revolved around real estate brokers from Trump Real Estate International and former contestants in Trump’s beauty pageants competing against each other in the real estate business. While there’s nothing horrible in these clips, it’s hard to watch them without a jaded eye following all of the women who have stepped forward with sexual assault allegations against Trump, including women who appeared on The Apprentice and some Miss USA contestants. Just, yuck. (Also, interesting side note: the show was developed by a production company owned by Carlos Slim, whom Trump accused of conspiring against him in the election. What is going on with that?)
Oh my God, more Baldwin brothers are weighing in on the election. Daniel? We’re all waiting to hear what you think.
Jimmy Kimmel mashed up The Walking Dead with Trump TV, two of my favorite subjects right now:
Here’s your teaser for Stephen Colbert’s election night special on Showtime:
Samantha Bee landed President Obama for her show next week.
So, it’s a weirdly big day in Megyn Kelly news:
Obviously, the late night hosts had a lot to say about the fight with Newt Gingrich.
Fresh off that fight, Kelly is in negotiations for a raise from FOX News, and is looking to make $20 million.
Kelly is also going to co-host Live! with Kelly on the day after the election.
Speaking of Live! with Kelly, for some reason, they’re bringing back that guy who won the co-hosting contest. He’s no Anderson Cooper.
Bryan Fuller is not going to be the showrunner on the Star Trek: Discovery series anymore, thereby dramatically reducing the chances I will ever watch it.
Mark your calendars: January 1 is when the fourth (and final?) season of Sherlock will debut.
It’s the same day that The Mick, a.k.a. “Sweet Dee Has to Take Care of Some Rich Kids,” will debut on FOX:
Kim Kardashian is back at work on Keeping Up with the Kardashians following her robbery, so the world can continue spinning on its axis.
OK, calm down, Chuck Lorre. TV is not “the greatest work being done” anywhere, buddy.
Raven-Symoné is leaving The View to go work on a That’s So Raven spinoff. I’m not sure if this is casting news or development news, so I’m just going to leave it here.
Some casting news:
Saving Hope, a series I had NO IDEA was still on the air, will return to ION for a fifth and final season.
Pretty Little Liars‘ series finale will have an hour-long after show.
Matthew Weiner, the man who created Mad Men, is finally returning to television — well, Amazon — with an anthology series that will be set in multiple locations around the world. It’s going to cost a fortune.
In other development news:
- JK Rowling’s crime series, Cormoran Strike, is coming to HBO. Let’s hope it’s better than that miniseries, The Casual Vacancy, which I wanted to love but did not.
- The Riftwood Chronicles, a sci-fi web comedy starring a couple of actors who have appeared on Supernatural and Battlestar Galactica, is being adapted Andy Serkis’ production company.
- Spike TV has picked up Waco, a miniseries based on the David Koresh standoff. It’s going to star Taylor Kitsch as Koresh, so there’s that.
- CBS bought Brotherhood, a comedy about brothers who move in together, from their old friend L.L. Cool J.
- Muppet Babies is returning thanks to Disney Junior.
- ABC picked up a cop drama, John Corey, based on a series of novels about the character of the same name.
- NBC bought crime drama, The Evidence Room.
- The upcoming sci-fi novel, Unearthed, has already been bought to be adapted into a TV series.
R.I.P. Michael Masse, actor in Carnivalé, 24, Fringe, Supernatural, Rizzoli & Isles and Flash Forward among many, many others.
