Megyn Kelly trying to pretend to be human by dancing on her show for no good reason will either be the best or the worst 22 seconds you’ll spend all day.

“The ratings are shit, it’s dragging down Kathie Lee and Hoda’s hour, but we spent $18 million on this mess … what to do … Hey! People love it when Ellen dances on her show, right? ALRIGHT, START DANCING, BLONDIE. WE DON’T CARE THAT YOU HAVE NO IDEA WHAT TO DO WITH YOUR ARMS OR HAVE ANY IDEA HOW TO SIMULATE ACTUAL HUMAN EMOTION, WE SAID, DANCE, PRINCESS. DANCE!”

After consulting my crystal ball (a.k.a. the first couple weeks of Nielsen ratings), I’ve made a bunch of predictions about which shows will be renewed and which will be cancelled this season.

David Fincher let slip what next season of Mindhunter is going to be about, if you’re interested.

Tracy Morgan’s new comedy, The Last O.G., just lost its showrunner and will not premiere until January. The show was originally supposed to premiere next week. However, FX delayed the premiere this summer. Not great signs, guys.

Stranger Things was thisclose to being another anthology series, but was saved by being too late to the game. Speaking of, here are a bunch of Stranger Things costumes — my favorite is the wall with the hand coming out of it.

Here is a long, loving piece about “Shada,” the Doctor Who story that they’ve tried to tell for 40 years.

Sean Penn is super pissed that Kate del Castillo’s Netflix documentary, The Day I Met El Chapo: The Kate del Castillo Story, basically says that Penn was the one who told the U.S. authorities where El Chapo was. Watch your back, Sean Penn!

Netflix has learned that remaking late night isn’t as easy as they might have thought.

AMC has released some new VR app that will contain extra The Walking Dead scenes which is great if you have a VR headset, I guess.

Here’s Evan Peters as Charles Manson for American Horror Story. I dunno, I think he made a better Andy Warhol.

Evan Peters or Charles Manson?

Your Harassment Roundup

Nickelodeon has fired the creator of Loud House after a dozen women came forward with stories of harassment.

David Blaine has been accused of rape.

LAPD is investigating Harvey Weinstein for sexual assault.

The Television Academy of Arts and Sciences has voted to start disciplinary action against Harvey Weinstein.

The Weinstein Company employees would like to be release from their non-disclosure agreements, please.

Lupita Nyong’o is the latest actress to come forward about Weinstein’s gross behavior. And Asia Argento had to leave Italy after being attacked for speaking out about Weinstein. Cool culture you got there, Italy.

Quentin Tarantino is sorry for being such a lousy person and choosing to ignore what he knew was happening. So is this guy.

So how’s sex rehab going for you, Harvey Weinstein?

The source told us, “In one group therapy session, Harvey arrived 15 minutes late. Then, when it was his turn to speak, he launched into a speech about how this is all a conspiracy against him.”

The source added that as others at the clinic shared their personal stories, “Harvey fell asleep in his chair. He was only woken up by the ringing of his smuggled mobile phone [which is banned at the facility] . . . Harvey jolted awake, jumped up, immediately took the call and then ran out of the room.”

And France’s version of America’s Got TalentLa France a un incroyable talent, has been suspended after one of its judges has been accused of sexual misconduct. KEEP IT IN YOUR PANTS, GENTLEMEN, EVEN YOU GUYS IN FRANCE. You are smoke, you are not the weather.
