Here’s the ‘Gilmore Girls’ trailer to help get your mind off ‘The Walking Dead’ for a minute.

Alright, that was sweet. Back to the gore.

The Walking Dead attracted 17 million viewers on Sunday. That’s more than the NFL brought in, but shy of The Walking Dead‘s record which was 17.29 million for the season five premiere (“No Sanctuary”– you know, the one with the cannibals at Terminus).

The Parents Television Council is SO MAD about that Walking Dead premiere, the president complaining that: “I understand violence is inherent to the storytelling here but the manner in which the depictions were made … it crossed the line. … With The Walking Dead, the creative team has resorted to the graphic violence as a crutch for what used to be better storytelling. When you can’t figure out what lines to write, you put something in easier, which is a graphic depiction. To me, it’s too much.” OH MY GOD AM I THE PRESIDENT OF THE PARENTS TELEVISION COUNCIL???

Oh, and here’s Greg Nicotero, the director of the premiere, saying that people shouldn’t be bothered by the violence of the episode because Game of Thrones. UH, NO.

Apparently, the episode titles this season of The Walking Dead refer to past seasons: the first episode, “The Day Will Come When You Won’t Be,” is what the head of the CDC said to Rick in the first season; the second episode is entitled, “The Well,” — which, remember the well on the farm in season 2? And then the third is entitled “The Cell” and season three took place in the prison, so they’re clearly doing a whole thing here.

If you tweeted “crying” on Sunday, there was a 77% chance you were talking about The Walking Dead.

Game of Thrones just filmed another reunion, this one a lot less happy. Spoilers spoilers spoilers!

If you were planning on being David S. Pumpkins for Halloween, hope you already bought your costume. Ken Bone is probably still available.

Is Eleven going to be in season two of Stranger Things? Probably! More than likely!

Here’s President Obama bringing the Mean Tweets and dropping the mic phone on one Donald J. Trump. 

Oh my God, did Donald Trump take all of his political positions from ’90s sitcom Dinosaurs? Sounds right.

Trump is totally practicing Trump TV on his Facebook page. He’s never going away, you guys. This nightmare will never end.

This man and his fantabulous hat covered in costume jewelry on Antiques Roadshow will make it all better.

The CW just renewed What’s My Line, Penn & Teller: Fool Us and  Masters of Illusion, so great news, fans of magic tricks!
