I love horror — and I especially love horror TV, if you hadn’t noticed by now. Because Halloween is next week, I made a gallery of TV’s scariest shows and where you can watch them right now. And to the commenter who mocked me for including Buffy the Vampire Slayer, bitch needs to go watch “Hush” and get back to me.
Kit Harington says he’s read the final script and the ending of Game of Thrones made him cry. THEY BETTER NOT KILL OFF ANY MORE DAMNED DRAGONS.
Yes, Justin Timberlake is going to be your Super Bowl halftime performer because I guess we’re finally over that whole Janet Jackson fashion malfunction? Is she no longer banned from the Super Bowl or did I miss something?
Meanwhile, Trump is trying to keep the whole NFL controversy alive.
Just look at those two tweets, which were posted roughly thirty minutes apart: “YOU’RE NOT PATRIOTING RIGHT!” followed by “MILITARY WIDOW LADY IS A LYING LIAR!” Someone is disrespecting our flag and country, but it’s not the NFL players or Mrs. Johnson.
Meanwhile, CNN launched a great new ad that seems to be referencing someone … can’t put my finger on who …
This is an excellent and thoughtful piece about how the portrayal of Beth and Randall’s family on This is Us is a game-changer for television.
Bigger than This is Us? Wow, folks are really liking The Good Doctor.
WHO IS GOING TO DIE ON JANE THE VIRGIN? TV Guide has the odds.
Oh, that’s right, David Fincher was going to remake Utopia for HBO. What happened?
Speaking of remakes, if The Dark Tower series happens, it’ll require a complete reboot from the disaster that was the movie released earlier this year, according to Stephen King. Oh, and King still hates Kubrick’s The Shining, in case you were wondering. Meanwhile, the twins from The Shining thought Stephen King’s dumb miniseries remake was crap.
Meanwhile, Arrow just name-checked Bruce Wayne; is there going to be some sort of crossover? Considering the shows are on completely different networks, it’s doubtful.
Yes, Marvel’s Inhumans is still, somehow, on the air. (They’ll air all the episodes, there are only 8 of them, but it won’t be renewed.)
I get what she’s saying here, but you’ll pry serialized TV from my cold dead hands.
Netflix is going to spend a FORTUNE on content next year — 7 to 8 billion — and we now know that some 200,000 people watch Grey’s Anatomy from the beginning EACH MONTH on the platform. Whoa.
This is just very sweet. Kick cancer’s ass, JLD.
Your Daily Harassment Roundup
So, let me get this right, Bill O’Reilly paid a woman $32 million to settle sexual harassment allegations that included “repeated harassment, a nonconsensual sexual relationship and the sending of gay pornography and other sexually explicit material to her” (nonconsensual sexual relationship, i.e. rape), and Fox News KNEW ABOUT IT and they opened contract negotiations with him ANYWAY? $32 million! O.J.’s victims were awarded $33.5 million AND HE KILLED TWO PEOPLE. Anyway, Bill O’Reilly’s fee-fees are hurt.
Megyn Kelly calls bullshit on Bill O’Reilly’s claims that no one complained about his behavior in this savage takedown.
Meanwhile, 38 women have come forward to accused writer and director James Toback of sexual harassment, and Hollywood reacted.
Paul Haggis asks out loud the thing that many people have been whispering about: is Hollywood covering up for pedophiles, too?
Speaking of, Stranger Things‘ Finn Wolfhard and The Descendants‘ Cameron Boyce both left their agency after two former child actors came forward to accuse their agent of assaulting them. The agent, Tyler Grasham, was then fired from the agency, APA.
A California woman has come forward to accuse Roman Polanski of molesting her when she was 10 years old, to no one’s surprise. It’s long past time to boot him from the Academy, you guys. (And I know that this and the Toback story are more movie-related, but all these stories are connected.)
- Magnum P.I. is being rebooted at CBS, you guys. Honestly, what took them so long?
- Looks like Jane Lynch is going to have her own daytime talk show.
- Femme, a feminist drama from Gina Rodriguez, is being developed at The CW.
- ABC is working on a Mike Schur family comedy based on writer Shea Serrano’s life.
- Fox is developing a single parents comedy from the creator of New Girl, and Regis Philbin’s daughter.
- Fox is also working on a comedy called Emma’s at Her Dad’s based on a book of the same title.
- Fox is working on a female-led 9/11 cop drama.
- Epiphany, a haunted house drama from a Stranger Things producer, is being developed at The CW.
- ABC is developing Vows, a drama about four married couples.
- Raoul Trujillo is joining the cast of Mayans MC.
- Sara Tomko will return to Once Upon a Time.
- Bradley Walsh, Tosin Cole, Mandip Gill, and Sharon D. Clarke are joining Doctor Who.
- If you watched the trailer I posted over here, you already know this, but Andy Samberg, Fred Armisen, Jason Mantzoukas, Jenny Slate, Judd Apatow, Judy Greer and Weird Al Yankovic will appear on Lady Dynamite this season.
- Do not look for Melissa Joan Hart on the Sabrina the Teenage Witch reboot.
