Alright, ‘The Walking Dead,’ I’ll bite: what’s the deal with the cantaloupe?

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

The Walking Dead posted a bunch of cryptic photos on Facebook and now everyone is trying to figure out what the hell cantaloupe have to do with anything. Are they an ingredient in Carol’s new cookies? Will Carl sit on the roof of a house and eat one? Will one roll underneath a dumpster and we will spend most of the season wondering about its fate? IT JUST COULD BE ANYTHING.

Here’s your first look at the upcoming third season of Better Call Saul, and things aren’t looking great for Jimmy:

You should read this story about how a TV writer was on the worst flight until it became the best flight, and you know what? 1. Good job, Delta and 2. Screw anyone who would be offended by Supergirl. Stop being an asshole, dude.

$100 million? Wow, someone really wanted to leave Fox News. Meanwhile, a bowtie-wearing douchebag will be taking her spot.

Girl Meets World has indeed met cancellation after three seasons.

What Would Diplo Do?, a comedy starring James Van Der Beek and … Diplo, is going to be Viceland’s first scripted series.

Nashville is the next series to receive an after-show. Interestingly, the host of Talking Dead which is considered the pioneer of these sorts of shows, Chris Hardwick, was on Watch What Happens Live! last night, and he credited that show for being the first of the after shows — which I had never considered before, but yes, it makes a sort of sense. So really we have Andy Cohen to thank for these sorts of schedule fillers, good or bad.

Heads up: Archer is moving to FXX for season 8.

So Netflix is doing a JonBenét documentary. Question: are we genuinely this obsessed with JonBenét? Really? But really though?

Diane Sawyer made a 20/20 special, “My Reality: A Hidden America,” about the shrinking middle class. It will air on January 13th. We should all probably watch it.

That trash show, Dish Nation, is sticking around on your Fox stations for a while. Bluh.

You got your CBS in my Hulu!

Congratulations, Peta Murgatroyd and Maksim Chmerkovskiy! I assume the baby already has his own tiny dance shoes and glitter tuxedo.

  1. Re: the Supergirl story. They’ve done a really good job with her coming out story and times, funny, sad, awkward and overall, depicted as a pretty real experience from those that I’ve known that have gone through it so kudos to them and kudos to the writer who stood up to the plane bully.

    Unrelated to anything, did you end giving Travelers a chance on Netflix? Its actually a pretty good binge and while Eric McCormack can chew scenery like a boss, I’ve really enjoyed the entire season.

    1. I haven’t watched it yet – I’ve heard from others that it’s a fun ride. Maybe once I’m ever caught up on everything else I’ve neglected over the holidays (as if that will ever happen).

  2. Girl Meets World being cancelled is too bad. I thought it was a good little show and touched on deeper issues than Disney Channel usually does. Maybe Hulu or someone will pick it up.

  3. Maybe the cantaloupes are full of explosives? You get a cantaloupe, you get a cantaloupe, every savior gets a cantaloupe!
