‘The Walking Dead’: All hail the King

The Walking Dead
“The Well”
October 30, 3016

While Rick, Michonne, Daryl, Maggie, and the others were watching Negan crush their souls, Carol and Morgan were in the middle of their own considerably less horrific drama. Carol left Alexandria in a fit of guilt or something, ambushed a bunch of Saviors, took their weapons and almost got away with it until Morgan and one of the Saviors caught up with Carol. The Savior did that dumb thing that bad guys do where he was all: “Imma gonna shoot you in the arm to drag out your pain but also to give someone an opportunity to sneak up from behind and kill me before I kill you,” which is exactly what happens. Morgan kills the Savior; Morgan has a moral crisis.

‘Timeless’: What happens in Vegas

Timeless
“Atomic City”
October 17, 2016

September 21, 1962

Is a date that holds no meaning for Lucy. Which is unfortunate, because that’s when Luka is. After several hours of sciencing, Jiya finds him. It turns out the “negative mass energy” that’s so inconvenient to loose papers has a signature that can be tracked. She puts the Heart of Gold somewhere in the desert within a 50-mile radius of Las Vegas.

Lucy provides the why for the where. She says President Kennedy was in Las Vegas on that date for a DNC fundraiser at the Sands Hotel. Sinatra was the headliner and the room was full of politicians, celebrities, and waste management consultants. Any or all of them could be a target.

The Time Trio suit up and board the Omni. And I kind of love how analog the controls are, with the pushing of buttons and flipping of switches to initiate the launch sequence. It makes the craft feel solid and real in a way that a bank of sleek flat touch screens wouldn’t. The pod’s interior also reminds me of the Millennium Falcon’s cockpit, which I’m sure is no accident.

‘American Horror Story’: Mind blown

American Horror Story
“Chapter 7”
October 26, 2016

We begin the episode in the production trailer hidden away in the woods, where Sidney, the toothy producer, is watching as Dominic and Matt pummel each other, exactly as he planned.

The ‘Stranger Things’/Charlie Brown mashup to watch while you put together your Eleven Halloween costume.

Here are some more gross Trump clips because we still have 12 more days of this shitwagon of an election season.

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:

R.I.P. Michael Masse, actor in Carnivalé, 24, Fringe, Supernatural, Rizzoli & Isles and Flash Forward among many, many others.
