Wait, wait, WAIT. Is ‘Fear the Walking Dead’ going to be set in Houston next season?

Thanks to his cryptic tweets, we might now know who will be in the Fear the Walking Dead/The Walking Dead crossover and if that happens, it’ll probably take place in Houston. AND DAMMIT ALL TO HELL, but if Fear the Walking Dead heads to Houston, I won’t have much choice BUT to recap it, right? Uuuuuuuuuuugh. But yay, Abraham?

According to the Ser Davos himself, we will never meet Mrs. Onion Knight. And I have to admit, I hadn’t given her a second’s thought. What did happen to her and why doesn’t Davos seem to care?

HOLD UP. Sansa has been dating Joe Jonas? SINCE WHEN?

Larry David and Miley Cyrus will be Saturday Night Live‘s host and musical guest when it returns on November 4.

Empire’s upcoming Prince tribute gives me all the feels.

Go on with your bad self, Jessica Sanchez.

All of your Stranger Things needs will be met at Target.

But ALL OF THE NOS to a “Sexy Eleven” costume. She’s a CHILD. What the fuck is wrong with you people?

The creator of Major Crimes has hope it will be picked up by someone else like Hulu or Netflix, but that is not gonna happen, honey. Your best hope is maybe USA, but even that is a long shot.

That female narrator won’t be back on Jane the Virgin, which is a shame.

David Fincher thinks Marvel is bullshit. But seriously, you guys, enough. No more Marvel shows until at least one of the current ones is canceled.

Speaking of, Marvel’s Inhumans is not winning anyone over.

Hey, we finally know how much was too much when it came to the gore on Hannibal.

When fandoms go wrong. Y’all have got to calm the fuck down.

Get well soon, Artie Lange.

This Harvey Weinstein story will never go away.

Courtney Love has been telling us about this bullshit since 2005.

British actress Lysette Anthony has come forward to say that Harvey Weinstein raped her in her home.

The Casting Society of America has put out a memo insisting that the “time for silence is over.” OK.

We have Alyssa Milano to thank for the #MeToo movement that took over your social media feeds this weekend. Oh, and me too.

Oh, Mayim Bialik, honey, no:

I still make choices every day as a 41-year-old actress that I think of as self-protecting and wise. I have decided that my sexual self is best reserved for private situations with those I am most intimate with. I dress modestly. I don’t act flirtatiously with men as a policy.

I am entirely aware that these types of choices might feel oppressive to many young feminists. Women should be able to wear whatever they want. They should be able to flirt however they want with whomever they want. Why are we the ones who have to police our behavior?

In a perfect world, women should be free to act however they want. But our world isn’t perfect. Nothing — absolutely nothing — excuses men for assaulting or abusing women. But we can’t be naïve about the culture we live in.

oh hell no seth meyers

Don’t worry, Martha Plimpton is ON IT.

James Corden hosted the AmFAR Gala on Friday night and made some Harvey Weinstein jokes that were not well-received. He has since apologized after Rose McGowan and others blasted him. Similarly, Al Michaels made a Weinstein joke during last night’s Sunday Night Football and had to apologize. It’s a tricky thing: Saturday Night Live and some of the late-night hosts made jokes and no one complained. So what’s the difference? The difference is Corden’s jokes came at the expense of the victims and Michaels almost seemed sympathetic to Weinstein. Punch up, not down, guys.

Sarah Silverman — who is the queen of taboo subjects — explains why making jokes about sexual assault is difficult.

Alec Baldwin is not having Fox News’ nonsense about this.

Tig Notaro is finding the hope in this ugly mess.

Hey, you know who literally NO ONE wants to hear from on this subject? Woody Fucking Allen, that’s who.

Meanwhile, actor Griffin Newman feels so bad about appearing in a Woody Allen film that he’s donating his paycheck from that movie to anti-sexual assault organization RAINN.

Vanessa Marquez, an actress on ER, claims that George Clooney helped blacklist her after she reported sexual and racial discrimination on set. He’s denying it.

Amazon’s Roy Price’s fianceé has broken off their engagement in the wake of the allegations against him.

  1. 1 – I guess that means I have to go back and watch FTWD. Got behind and never went back to it.

    2 – I am more bummed than I should be about The Night Shift. It wasn’t great, but I loved that stupid show.

    1. 1. This last season was actually pretty decent and had some genuinely surprising moments. It might have been its best season yet — which isn’t saying a whole lot.

      2. Never watched it!

  2. But are they actually going to film in Houston? Or be like the Night Shift? (Filmed in New Mexico, I think, but took place in San Antonio)

    1. If it’s set in Houston — which I think is probably a long shot — there’s NO CHANCE they’ll film here. Texas dumped their tax incentives for film production a couple of years ago, and so the burgeoning Austin film/TV industry had the knees cut out from underneath it. “Fear” seems to mostly film in LA and Mexico, so I imagine they’ll either continue doing so in one of those locations, or, if the crossover is only in one episode for instance, they might even film it in Atlanta (like they did for Abraham’s flashback episode).
