AMC just suggested there could be 50 more years of ‘The Walking Dead’ so I’m just going to go back to bed now.

Declining ratings? What declining ratings? Apparently on a phone call with investors yesterday, the CEO of AMC said that The Walking Dead will go on for decades:

“The use of the word ‘franchise,’ we don’t take lightly. It’s not a sloppy or casual word,” Sapan said. “We’ve studied the best. Some have been around 30, 40, 50 years. We have a chance for a lot of life in the franchise.”

First of all, FIRST OF ALL, we will all be lucky to be here in 50 years, and TV will be lucky to be here in 5 years. But second of all, this idea that there is no end in sight for The Walking Dead universe just confirms the worst about the series: that there is no plan, there is no point or message or purpose. It’s just going to be an endless shuffle of characters stumbling through the apocalypse fighting one another over nothing for forever. Super.

The Country Music Association is demanding that journalists not ask artists political questions or questions about gun control on the red carpet for the upcoming CMA Awards. This despite the fact that the worst shooting in American history was just a month ago at a country music festival so this all just makes sense and seems very reasonable.

Nielsen is finally digging into ratings for Netflix, and it turns out y’all like you some Stranger Things.

Angela Basset wants to be in a Murder House-Coven crossover season. SHE BETTER BE IN IT, RYAN MURPHY.

Production on Westworld has been delayed after an unnamed actor had an unnamed medical emergency. WHAT AREN’T YOU TELLING US, HBO? DID THE ROBOTS ACTUALLY KILL SOMEONE?

Sarah Hyland is claiming that Haley Dunphy is bisexual, which, I mean, OK.

ESPN has changed their social media policies in the wake of the Jemele Hill mess, though they are saying that it’s not because of the Jemele Hill mess. OK.

Scottie and Larsa Pippen have called off their divorce, LOVE LIVES.

Harassment Updates

The Late Show with Stephen Colbert told Jeremy Piven to fuck right off. I mean, not in those words, but the message was the same.

Paz De La Huerta has come forward to say she was raped twice by Harvey Weinstein and now the LAPD is investigating.

Another man has come forward to claim Kevin Spacey raped him when he was 15. House of Cards producers admit that Spacey was investigated for an incident on the set of the show. They have set up an anonymous tipline for others to come forward. The London police are now investigating Spacey and his agency and publicist have dropped him. orly? why?

THIS. THIS ALL DAY.

Corey Feldman named John Grissom as his molester and filed charges against him with the LAPD.

And now David Corn.

Hey, how’s that case against Danny Masterson going? It’s not? It’s not going anywhere? Cool cool cool.

Alec Baldwin has admitted to “bullying” women. OH, YOU DON’T SAY.

Hey, the Dutch are going to start airing a show called Raped or Not next week. So that’s great.

  1. I feel like in all fairness you should hate recap a new show each season. Possibly even change to a new one at the beginning of the year. Variety is the spice of life.
