The polls close sometime tomorrow — I’m not exactly sure what time — so consider this your last chance to pick one of the following shows for me to hate-blog, per my terrible husband’s suggestion. It looks like The Orville, SEAL Team and Marvel’s Inhumans are pretty firmly in the lead, so if you want S.W.A.T. to stand a chance, Chris Odell, you better spend all day voting for it.
So what do you think? Which of these shows should become my personal nightmare?
Yeah, Jamie Lannister is calling bullshit on that idea that they are going to film multiple endings for Game of Thrones. “You’re not going to waste $100,000 a day to shoot something you’re not going to use. It’s not going to happen.”
Good news about GoT: looks like they’re bringing Miguel Sapochnik back to direct. He directed “Hardhome” and “Battle of the Bastards” but sat out season 7.
Remember how Kevin Can Wait said they were going to kill off Erinn Hayes’ character (to make room for Leah Remini) but treat her death with “respect?” Yeah, they addressed it with a coupon joke.
Gordon Thomson, the original Adam Carrington on Dynasty, has some feelings about the reboot: “I have had a look at the new Dynasty and I am appalled. What the fuck is the CW doing? It’s utter shit … Why call it Dynasty? It’s nothing to do with Dynasty at all. It’s insulting. If the afterlife exists—it doesn’t, but if it did—Aaron would be having major fits in his grave. And the audience the CW is aiming for is going to think it’s shit because it is such shit that a cretinous 6-year-old would not be interested. It’s abominable.”
Netflix wants to improve flying a little by making it easier to stream it on planes. (~puts on her skeptical hat~ “We’ll see.”)
You’ll have to wait until 2019 for Fox’s live Rent. Somehow I’ll survive, I think.
Hey, they’re filming The Bachelor, and spoiler alert: Arie takes a white woman out on a date.
Showtime’s streaming site was hacked to mine for Monero coins and I don’t know what this future is.
In case you need a complete guide to the Will & Grace revival, The Hollywood Reporter has got you covered. (No one needs a complete guide to the Will & Grace revival.)
Tim Goodman wonders why television doesn’t seem to be responding to Trump (besides late night, of course).
So the NFL-Trump fight continues with our shitbird president tweeting about it some more this morning after Dallas Cowboys’ owner Jerry Jones took a knee with the team before the national anthem. (And while I think taking a knee before the anthem instead of during is a wuss move, it’s still more than some teams and owners did, so, you know.) I’m not going to embed the dumb tweets here because I said yesterday that we should just ignore them, but I will point out that contrary to some of the tweet claims, the NFL’s ratings have improved this week.
Meanwhile, even phony little creep Brian Kilmeade thinks the language Trump used was “terrible” and that he made things “immeasurably worse.”
And so far the casts of two shows have shown their support for the protestors:
- The Perfectionists, a spinoff of Pretty Little Liars, is in the works.
- HBO has given a pilot order to Avenue 5, a new space comedy from Armando Iannucci, the creator of Veep.
- Underworld is going to be turned into a TV series.
- The comic book American Flagg! is being turned into a TV series. Interesting timing.
- NBC is developing Bellevue, a medical drama.
- ABC is developing Valley Girls, a Silicon Valley comedy from Kelly Ripa and Mark Consuelos’ production comedy.
- Fox is developing One Call That’s All, a legal family dramedy.
- Harry Hamlin is going to recur on Law & Order: True Crime.
- Chevy Chase, Andie MacDowell, and Richard Dreyfuss have been cast in the Netflix movie The Last Laugh.
- Louis Gossett Jr., Corbin Bernsen, and Andrew Dice Clay are all joining the cast of Hap & Leonard for season three.
- Sanaa Lathan is joining The Affair.
- Vincent Kartheiser has joined the Das Boot miniseries that Sky is doing. The cast also includes Tom Wlaschiha, James D’Arcy, and Lizzy Caplan.
- Amy Jackson is joining Supergirl as Saturn Girl.
- Abraham D. Juste is joining the cast of grown-ish.
- Mckenna Grace and Violet McGraw are joining the cast of The Haunting of Hill House.
