‘Crazy Ex-Girlfriend’ returns tonight, not that you’ll watch it. WHY WON’T YOU WATCH IT?

Crazy Ex-Girlfriend returns tonight, hooray! Here’s what you can look forward to this season, the six of you who actually watch it. Listen, it’s on Netflix now, there’s literally no excuse to not be watching the best show you are not watching. Give it a chance! Have I ever steered you wrong?

Uproxx places odds on who will die this season of The Walking Dead, and for the most part, I agree with their assessment, though I think Dwight has a better chance than they give him.

AMC is trying to lure you to their streaming service by offering you more zombies.

Sometimes spinoffs don’t work out and then everyone has to go back to the original show like nothing ever happened.

Not everyone hates The Orville as much as I do. But then I really, really hate it so it would be hard to get to my level, to be fair.

Disney-ABC began layoffs this week if you’re interested in some inside baseball.

Some Mexican Telenovela star just up and slapped a Univision reporter on a red carpet.

Aww, our time with Austin Rogers has come to an end.

Charles Schultz’s home was destroyed in the California wildfires.

Get well soon, Tamar Braxton.

I am tired of talking about Harvey Weinstein and his disgusting penis. But the news keeps breaking:

So, Amazon is a damned mess.

First Rose McGowan, one woman firebomber, tore into Jeff Bezos on Twitter alleging that she told the head of Amazon’s studios that Harvey Weinstein raped her and they did fuck all about it:

Isa Hackett, daughter of Philip K. Dick, and producer on The Man in the High Castle and Philip K. Dick’s Electric Dreams, has come forward to say that Amazon’s programming head, Roy Price, repeatedly propositioned her and said “You’ll love my dick,” while at Comic-Con in 2015. Later, while she was talking to other producers at a party, he came up behind her and said: “ANAL SEX” in her ear. She reported his behavior to Amazon, and nothing apparently happened except that he was no longer at events for her shows. Now that Hackett, inspired by the Weinstein story, has gone public, suddenly Price is on “leave of absence.” We’ll see how long that lasts.

Harvey Weinstein’s contract with The Weinstein Company allowed for him sexually harass women so long as he paid TWC, and so his firing might actually be illegal: “According to the contract, if Weinstein ‘treated someone improperly in violation of the company’s Code of Conduct,’ he must reimburse TWC for settlements or judgments. Additionally, ‘You [Weinstein] will pay the company liquidated damages of $250,000 for the first such instance, $500,000 for the second such instance, $750,000 for the third such instance, and $1,000,000 for each additional instance.’ The contract says as long as Weinstein pays, it constitutes a “cure” for the misconduct and no further action can be taken.”

Cue up the lawsuits.

Unsurprisingly, bankruptcy for The Weinstein Company is looming.

Rita Moreno told a crowd that Fox Studio Head Buddy Adler harassed her when she was starting out in the business.

Daley Haggar, a television writer, has come forward to say that she was fired after being sexually harassed.

Blake Lively revealed that producers were more upset about her dog pooping in her trailer than the makeup artist she caught filming her when she was sleeping.

New York and London police are looking into complaints against Weinstein, but Beverly Hills police say no one has filed a complaint against him. Joe Biden wants criminal charges brought. Hang tight, Vice President.

Megyn Kelly is not having it, Twitter.

The Producers Guild of America is holding a meeting to decide whether to expel Weinstein.

CBS Films president Terry Press threatened to leave the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences if Weinstein isn’t removed.

South Park took a shot at Harvey Weinstein in this week’s episode.

Peaky Blinders, Project Runway, and Six have removed Weinstein’s name from their credits.

Oliver Stone is threatening to pull out of Guantanamo for Showtime if The Weinstein Company remains involved. However, he also said “I believe a man shouldn’t be condemned by a vigilante system. It’s not easy what he’s going through, either,” so, you know, he’s not some big hero here.

Hachette Books has terminated its deal with The Weinstein Company.

Lin-Manuel Miranda and Quiara Alegria Hudes have asked The Weinstein Company to give up the movie rights to Into the Heights.

 

Jason Momoa has apologized for a gross rape joke he made on the Game of Thrones panel at Comic-Con back in 2011. WHY ARE YOU GUYS SUCH DICKS AT COMIC-CON? SERIOUSLY, THOUGH.

Hey, you know who doesn’t come from a strong moral position to call for the firing of someone for potentially covering up stories of sexual harassment? The guy who took over Bill O’Reilly’s spot on Fox News, a literal den of sexual predators.

Seth Rogan, meanwhile, is awesome:

So now that we’re on the subject of Donald Fucking Trump …

Trump retweeted a dumb Bill O’Reilly tweet this morning about FAKE NEWS!

Need I remind you that Bill O’Reilly and Donald Trump, like Harvey Weinstein, have both been accused of gross sexual harassment abuses. To add a fun twist to all of this, Trump’s target, NBC News, dropped the ball both on the Weinstein and “Grab ‘Em by the Pussy” story.

According to this, Sean Hannity is encouraging Trump to ignore John Kelly’s advice, so that’s super. Oh, and Hannity has picked a Twitter fight with Ben Sasse over Sasse correctly pointing out that Trump is shitting on the Constitution.

Meanwhile — and I can’t believe I’m saying this — for the very first time in my life, I agree (partially) with something Rush Limbaugh said.
