Thanks to the horrific allegations against Kevin Spacey, ‘House of Cards’ is falling like … well … you know.

Following Kevin Spacey’s half-apologetic acknowledgment that he — at the very least — acted inappropriately with a minor, Netflix announced that the upcoming season of House of Cards will be its last. But then today, Netflix went a step further and suspended filming indefinitely.

Netflix faced something of a backlash yesterday after making the cancellation notice when people pointed out that Netflix had decided months ago that the sixth season was going to be their last and that their cancellation had nothing to do with Spacey despite their announcement sounding like it did.

The series had only started filming two weeks ago so it will be interesting to see what Netflix ends up doing with the series long-term. 

Meanwhile, Netflix is considering House of Cards spinoffs, including one that would focus on Doug Stamper.

As for Spacey, the International Academy of Television Arts and Sciences has revoked the 2017 International Emmy Founders Award they were going to give him.

Meanwhile, Family Guy made a pedophilia joke about Kevin Spacey years ago. Seth MacFarlane hasn’t commented yet, but as Gawker founder Nick Denton pointed out, these stories have been open secrets for a long time now.

Elsewhere, a former Bachelorette producer has sued Warner Brothers and show producers for sexual harassment.

Hamilton Fish of liberal publication The Nation is out over sexual harassment allegations.

The only surprising thing about this Andy Dick sexual harassment story is how long it took Andy Dick to get dragged into this.

Harvey Weinstein — whose sexual assault allegations now stretch back to the 1970s —  is out of the Producers Guild of America. UK cops have expanded the investigation into Weinstein’s sexual assault allegations.

Jimmy Kimmel is promising to address Weinstein during the Oscars but knows that he has to do so sensitively: “It’s not really a laugh­ing matter. There’ll be a lot of people in that room who maybe have been through experiences with him, and that’s not something I want them to relive on the night they get their Oscar.” IS THAT SO HARD?

Hey, It’s Halloween!

The morning shows love Halloween sooooo much. Here’s what everyone wore today. And did Megyn Kelly know Shania Twain was going to be a guest on the show? Maybe not!

John Kelly had quite the interview with Laura Ingraham last night, in which he refused to apologize to Congresswoman Wilson, said that Robert E. Lee was a good dude, and claimed that the Civil War was fought because people couldn’t compromise. ONCE AGAIN FOR THE BACK ROW: NAZIS ARE BAD. SLAVERY IS BAD.
