In news that is not surprising in the least, The Walking Dead has been renewed for an 8th season ahead of the 7th season premiere. This show is going nowhere anytime soon.
But here’s a question: how long will Negan actually be around on The Walking Dead? There have been hints that the next baddie is already on the way. (Comic spoilers abound, tread carefully.)
Hey, here’s another Game of Thrones spoiler involving certain characters interacting which could be huge if true. Proceed accordingly.
And here is Robb Stark throwing cold water on the rumors (that I had not heard until now) that he would be the Lady Stoneheart character on the show. Sorry, theorists.
Alright, another day, another batch of gross Trump stories. ~shiver~
NBC has decided to move that Trump-inspired Law & Order episode to air after the election, which, honestly, only seems fair. I am OBVIOUSLY not Trump supporter, but it seemed uncool to air this a week before the election.
Summer Zervos, a former contestant on The Apprentice, has added her name to the growing list of women who claimed Trump groped them.
While filming Celebrity Apprentice, Trump repeatedly called Lil’ Jon an “Uncle Tom” when Lil’ Jon was dressed as Uncle Sam. This is interesting for a number of reasons: 1. Trump had no idea that calling an African-American “Uncle Tom” was offensive and had to be told to cut it the Hell out, but 2. Trump clearly has no idea who Uncle Sam is. Reminder: this man wants to be President of the United States.
He also called Khloe Kardashian a “piglet” when she was on Celebrity Apprentice.
Marlee Matlin has the last word on Trump calling her “retarded”: “The term is abhorrent and should never be used. The fact that we are talking about this during a very important moment in American history has upset me deeply… As a person who is deaf, as a woman, as a mom, as a wife and as an actor, I have a voice. And I’m using that voice to make myself heard…and vote.”
And one of the Trump accusers managed to drag Real Housewife of New York, Sonja Morgan, into this whole mess. LEAVE SONJA ALONE.
Harry Connick Jr. is, for now, the new Billy Bush on The Today Show. Doesn’t he have his own talk show to worry about?
This is an interesting piece about the leaks over at NBCU, questioning why no one seems to be taking them more seriously over there.
Oh, and here’s Jeff Zucker talking about the time Donald Trump wanted to be paid $6 million an episode for The Apprentice, but Zucker offered him $500,000 instead, and he took it. The Art of the Deal, indeed!
Here are a bunch of showrunner’s debate questions for Donald Trump. “Why are you doing this to America?”
And oh my God, I never thought it would happen, but here is TV news related to Hillary Clinton: According to the Wikileaks, both the Clinton and the Sanders campaigns reached out to Larry David for his endorsement after seeing his Bernie impersonation on Saturday Night Live. Larry declined both requests.
Trump’s son-in-law Jared Kushner has been approaching media folks about setting up a network following the election, so Trump News might become an actual thing, God have mercy on our souls.
Alright, you made it. Take a deep breath and watch this gorgeous trailer for Planet Earth II and remind yourself that the Presidential candidates are just two tiny creatures on this amazing place and all will pass. All will pass.
The Simpsons hit 600 episodes last night, but it is still only the second-longest running TV series.
Chuck Lorre of all people is working on a Bonfire of the Vanities series for Amazon. How about no.

Bosch has been renewed for a fourth season on Amazon ahead of its third season.
Apparently Jade and Tanner, the “happily ever after” couple from Bachelor in Paradise are already on Marriage Boot Camp: Reality Stars, where Jade was made up to look like she was dead and put in a body bag while Tanner read the last thing he had said to her which was: “What the f-ck have you done all day? You’re worthless and a b-tch and a lazy and a slob. When it comes to responsibility, I feel I do 90%, and I don’t love you as a partner in our marriage.” So they seem happy.
Here is a video that acts like anyone could whip up this amazing Stranger Things demogorgon mask for Halloween like it’s no big deal. LOL, SURE. I, for one, will be going as dead Jade from Bachelor in Paradise.
