Cue Boyz II Men’s “End of the Road,” because these 25 shows are saying goodbye in 2018

Good morning, chickens: I made you a gallery of 25 shows that we know for certain are going to end this year. Light some candles and prepare your eulogies.

There are no official talks to revive Lost. Yet.

Houston has you in our thoughts, Montecito.

Ryan Murphy’s defense to the Versace family’s attack of his new show is basically: Penelope Cruz and Donatella are friends, so.

The buzz surrounding “U.S.S. Callister” becoming a series continues.

Hulu has 17 million subscribers. Is that more or fewer than I expected, I’m not sure …

Interesting: Bojack Horseman is being shopped for syndication, something that doesn’t usually (ever?) happen for Netflix series.

The Fosters are not here to tell you a happy story about the situation for those affected by DACA.

If The Walking Dead lasts 11 seasons — which, let’s be honest, it probably will — the season finale could really be something. (Comic spoilers, beware.)

Trump thinks he could beat Oprah if she were to run, which he also claims won’t happen. OK, DINGLES, BUT YOU’RE NOT GOING TO WANT TO READ THIS, BUDDY.

Meanwhile, Bannon is out at Breitbart, and will not be extended an invitation to Fox News anytime soon.

And Trump’s other booster is really mad at the BBC right now. LOL OK.


If NFL players kneel during the Super Bowl, NBC will show it live, so brace yourself for another pointless culture battle from the Whiner-in-Chief. As for the Super Bowl after show, NBC has set This is Us (duh), and The Tonight Show‘s guests will be Justin Timberlake, The Rock and the cast of This is Us.

Glenn Howerton wants you to know that he is not done with It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia even though he’s on A.P. Bio now, and who knows, maybe Sunny will be like Curb Your Enthusiasm, i.e. filming every six years? NO THANK YOU, SIR. NO.

Good Girls, NBC’s new drama that seems to have been cast to appeal specifically to me, will test America’s appetite for female anti-heroes. I wish them Godspeed. Christina Hendricks replaced the wonderful Kathleen Rose Perkins on Good Girls because something about the character becoming more of a tight-ass, and nothing to do with Hendrick being more of a household name.

Rise, NBC’s new musical drama based on the life of theater teacher Lou Volpe, is straight-washing its lead character for no good reason.  Also, don’t expect Rise to tackle Hamilton anytime soon — even though one of the creators is a producer. Spring Awakening, however… Ahead of the premiere, NBC is donating $500,000 to support high school theater programs with the “R.I.S.E. Initiative.”

NBC has kicked off “Female Forward,” an initiative to find and hire more female directors.

Sex Monster Daily

Welcome to the party, James Franco. After several women accused him of gross behavior, The New York Times cancelled TimesTalk event with him. He was on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert last night where he denied the allegations.

Russell Simmons has been accused of rape by two more women. Simmons has finally suspeneded his bullshit #NotMe campaign.

Marky Mark has the worst P.R. people in the business. READ THE ROOM, DUDE.

Harpers is on the verge of publishing the name of the woman who compiled the “Shitty Media Men” list, so that’s very cool and definitely not doxxing her and certainly won’t end badly for her.

Michael Douglas is coming forward to deny an accusation of sexual misconduct that hasn’t been reported yet.

Paul Haggis has resigned from the charity Artists for Peace and Justice in the wake of rape allegations.

Rose McGowan continues to have something to say.

So does the guy who got fired from Netflix for saying that the comapny didn’t believe Danny Masterson’s accusers. OK, dude.

NBC Universal has pushed back on the E!/Catt Sadler salary dispute, claiming that there is a lot of “misinformation” out there and Jason Kennedy did more work. Catt Sadler is calling bullshit.

Greta Gerwig also regrets working with Woody Allen.

Meryl Streep wants you to know that she doesn’t hate men.
