Chris Harrison is threatening to make ‘Bachelor Winter Games’ an annual thing, and I just can’t, you guys. I CAN NOT.

This writer has some very good theories about what is behind the reboot boom right now, but cutting through the clutter, and the idea that networks just aren’t being offered premium material make the most sense to me. Speaking of reboots, is Martin next?

Let’s talk about all those amazing Simpsons predictions.

Alan Ball talks about his upcoming HBO series, Here and Now, and how it might be supernatural?

I had an argument with my older son last night about whether or not The Good Place is the best show on network TV right now, which he lost when he realized he had no idea what I was talking about when I said “network TV.” Anyway, last night’s finale just proved me right again. I love that sweet show.

Important: All the celebrities Tahani has name-dropped on The Good Place.

Important: All the hot dads of Riverdale, ranked.

Chuck Norris wants his Walker, Texas Ranger money, y’all.

Alex Trebek is harsh with some nerds:

Daily Groper

Kate Upton’s got something to say about Guess’ founder Paul Marciano:

Female artists and music executives are calling for Academy President Neil Portnow to resign. Instead, Portnow offers, how about a “task force?”

Shonda Rhimes would appreciate it if you’d stop using the phrase “smart strong women” and stop treating “women” as a TV trend. Thanks.

Crazy Ex-Girlfriend co-creator Aline Brosh McKenna started #FemaleFilmmakerFriday on Twitter last week to try to broaden our ideas about who can be directors.

Interesting: The #MeToo movement has inspired actors and crew to speak out about safety issues on set.
