‘This is Us’ promises to reveal how Jack died next season — for serious this time — and a couple of other little spoilers.

It was NBC’s turn at the TCAs

NBC is going to launch an initiative to train and hire more female directors. DO YOU HEAR THAT, CBS? CAN I GET AN AMEN, JESSICA CHASTAIN?

This Is Us promises they are going to reveal how Jack died in the second season, so calm down. Here is a spoilerishy post about an upcoming scene. Here’s the story of why NBC changed their minds about moving This Is Us to Thursdays. (Basically because it was a terrible, terrible idea.)

Tina Fey is going to be guest starring on Great News as Diana St. Tropez, the new boss at MMN. This works.

NBC tries to explain why they canceled The Carmichael Show, fails.

They also shit all over the fans that brought Timeless back: “The outcry from fans — I don’t know how many there really were, but like all things [on] social media, it’s a lot smaller than you think.” What? Then why did you bring it back?

Law & Order, original flavor, is never coming back. The Apprentice is not coming back (and that Trump Law & Order: SVU is never going to see the light of day). But the head of NBC would love to bring back The Office, 30 Rock, The West Wing and ER. DO IT THEN.

Rosario will not be on the reboot of Will & Grace as Shelley Morrison has decided to retire. Also, the writers intend to deal with Karen being a Trump supporter and will address the death of Debbie Reynolds.  The producers had nothing nice to say about Jeff Zucker whom they sued back in 2003.

Dick Wolf already has plans for upcoming seasons of Law & Order: True Crime.

Tina Fey and Robert Carlock’s promising-sounding comedy The Sackett Sisters wasn’t picked up because NBC just had too many other great shows according to them. ~looks at NBC’s lineup, sees that Trial & Error is still on it~

Here are a collection of tweets from TCA about NBC sitcoms. In short: Trial & Error will focus on an older female serial killer and Lithgow will not appear; Superstore will feature an episode about health insurance; Katie on Great News will idolize Tina Fey’s Sheryl Sandberg-esque character.

Steve Harvey apparently thought that insane memo of his was “cute.

No one is pressuring Jimmy Fallon to do more political stuff, but maybe they should be?

LOVE IS DEAD. The Trump Administration has outlived Tom and Luann, you guys.

Hope you weren’t looking forward to ABC’s live musical Little Mermaid because it’s not happening soon — if ever.

Someone OTHER than the original hackers have released Sunday’s Game of Thrones episode — AND NONE OF YOU PEOPLE BETTER SPOIL ANYTHING FOR ME DAMMIT. Meanwhile, the original hackers are threatening to leak more data on Sunday.

Here’s our first Bachelor in Paradise cast photo, and besides DeMario and Corinne, there are some previously unannounced faces in there, including Diggy, JACK STONE!, Iggy and the Penguin guy:

Chris Harrison promises the whole DeMario/Corinne thing will be discussed. IT BETTER BE, HARRISON.

Here is your first glimpse of Mr. Robot season three.

And your Sean Spicer on Dancing with the Stars dreams have just been dashed.

The Kennedy Center Honors are planning to celebrate Norman Lear, but they’ll have to do it without him because Fuck You, Donald Trump.

Fascinating: a third of all adults have no idea that you can get broadcast TV for free. Y’all, come on.

Amazon Prime will be the new home for classic sitcoms Roseanne, Third Rock from the Sun, Cybill, Grace Under Fire, Grounded for Life and A Different World.

The Young and the Restless is maybe working on its first same-sex romance. It’s the only soap currently without an out character, interestingly enough.

Is this the part where the sexual harassment claims against Fox News start firing up again?

ESPN is actually launching ESPN8: The Ocho, but for one day only. 🙁

IMPORTANT.

Oh, Joshua. I’m so disappointed.

One thought on “‘This is Us’ promises to reveal how Jack died next season — for serious this time — and a couple of other little spoilers.

  1. The late season of Game of Thrones is making me choose between Sharknado 5 and GoT. I mean there is no question here, but still. Watching Sharknado and Twitter live is half the fun.
