In other TV news


Dios lo bendiga, Conan’s guests for his episode in Mexico City will include Vicente Fox and Diego Luna. It airs on March 1.

Is your smart TV spying on you? I mean, I don’t know, but I am all sorts of freaked out that my Nest might be being hacked at this very moment according to the news last night.

Hey, Game of Thrones fans, here’s a lovely tribute to The Hound that will make you have all the feels. The Gods are not done with him yet.:

Alright, we see you, Chili’s.

Pilot News

CBS has given Living Biblically, a comedy based on the A.J. Jacobs’ book The Year of Living Biblically, a pilot order. It’s being produced by two Big Bang Theory stars, fun fact.

CBS ordered Distefano, a comedy being produced by the How I Met Your Mother guys.

NBC has ordered another pilot from the True Blood writer, Charlaine Harris. This time a conspiracy drama called Redliners.

In Development

Shondaland is developing I’m Judging You: The Do Better Manuala book by Luvvie Ajayi, as a comedy and not for ABC, but for cable.

Nicole Kidman is developing and might star in a TV adaptation of the novel The Expatriates. And this is sad, and not meant to be hateful, but that is how you know a movie actress has reached her expiration date, that she moves on to prestige TV projects.

Shailene Woodley does not have time for your half-assed Divergent TV movie, thanks.


The weirdest show I’ve ever seen, The OA, has been renewed for a second batshit insane season on Netflix. Start practicing the movements, guys.

Netflix has also renewed Love, that Judd Apatow series I didn’t watch.


The Insider, Entertainment Tonight‘s sister show, has been cancelled after 13 seasons.


Powerless debuted with the same numbers as The Good Place‘s finale, which is not terrific news because the premiere is usually the highest rated episode. And since The Good Place has already been renewed, it makes it that much harder for Powerless.

Things are looking bleak for Quantico.

Training Day debuted lower than Rush Hour — which was promptly cancelled — so don’t expect it to be around for long.

Lethal Weapon is looking good for renewal, but Sleepy Hollow — oof, y’all.

The Cancel Bear thinks The 100 could be in danger, but I disagree. It has enough of a fan base and critical love to keep it going another year, if that’s what the showrunners want.

And y’all love you some Puppy Bowl: 2.5 million tuned in this year which is up 12 percent from last year.

Get Well Soon

Oh no, Charlie Rose needs heart surgery. Get better soon, Mr. Rose!


Richard Hatch, the original Battlestar Galactica‘s Apollo, and All My Children‘s Phil Brent
