Watch the new ‘Handmaid’s Tale’ trailer. No reason, really.

RuPaul has announced his cast for the ninth season of Drag Race.

Your prayers have been answered: Sharknado 5 is a go.

Emilia Clarke is trying to spoil Game of Thrones for you:

And if that isn’t spoilery enough, there’s this.

Conan will bring all his whiteness back to the Apollo Theater in November.

This is an inside baseball story about the behind-the-scenes changeover at Powerless that I probably find more interesting than you because I know one of the people involved.

Hey, a reality show cast member is mad that he wasn’t depicted in a positive light. In other breaking news, water is wet and Earth revolves around the sun.

Here is the pretty cast of Hulu’s upcoming Marvel’s Runaways series.

Lena Dunham wants a Girls movie. And if HBO could inflict Sex & The City 2 on us, what won’t they do?

Oh, Has Trump Made Some TV News Today? I Was Trying to Not Pay Attention

Sigh:

And Trump, in another attack on the First Amendment, is now trying to delegitimize the protests by claiming the protestors are paid. I’m still waiting for my check, if that’s the case.

Kellyanne Conway is really clinging to those Alternative Facts.

Meanwhile, the South Park guys have given up trying to make fun of Trump because “satire has become reality.” True fact: McSweeney’s ran a humorous piece about Donald Trump’s black history month address, and they literally just ran his own words.

As for Lady Gaga, she won’t say if her halftime performance will be political because the times we live in now demand that we ask pop stars if their Super Bowl Halftime shows will be explicitly about the fucking President. I NEED TO LIE DOWN.

  1. Nah, they wont drop anything Friday evening. Sunday evening will be much better. 2/3 of the population will be distracted by a game and all the commercials for days. Perfect timing.

    1. It’s at the Super Bowl Live event at Discovery Green. I don’t know if it’s THE Puppy Bowl that will be aired on Sunday, but there are official Puppy Bowl things taking place down there. You should go!

  2. FYI, Emma Caulfield is in TiMER, a romantic comedy film that is sweet & charming (despite an absurd sci-fi premise), which has been available for streaming on Netflix for several years.
