Yes, celebrities joined the March for Our Lives, but the real stars were the kids. (And the snarky signs.)

It was a busy weekend:

The March for Our Lives happened on Saturday and by all measures, it was a huge success — estimates have one million people attending. I’m going to mention some celebrities who were there because this is a TV blog, but make no mistake, the real stars of this event were the teens who inspired it, organized it and spoke at it.¬†

Emma Gonzalez was as powerful as anyone I’ve ever seen.

Sam Fuentes threw up on live TV, and then came back and finished her speech with a moving tribute to one of her friends and victims:

Naomi Wadler is 11. 11.

Also in attendance: some famous people, including some of the Pawnee gang. And Paul McCartney joined the New York march:

As for the best sign at the march, it was inspired by TV, too:

In second place (TV category):

And did Tiffany Trump join The Resistance?

Also this weekend, Stormy Daniels spoke to Anderson Cooper about her relationship with Trump on 60 Minutes. 1. I believe her. 2. The story here is not the sex, it’s the threat. 3. The only real reason I am mentioning it here is that she alleges that he essentially got her into bed by suggesting he might get her on Celebrity Apprentice.¬†The interview came after Anderson Cooper’s other interview with a Playmate who claims to have had a relationship with him at the same time — in fact, at the same golf tournament where he met Stormy Daniels. Hollywood had some thoughts on the whole mess.

And clearly freaked out by the whole thing, President David Dennison followed CNN on Twitter this morning, only to immediately unfollow them. LOL.

The Simpsons gets it:

Mike Pence’s daughter is totally cool with John Oliver’s gay bunny book. High five, Charlotte!

So this is a really good Game of Thrones spoiler and bit of deduction about what it all means.¬†It goes along nicely with this post from last week. Don’t click if you want to remain unspoiled.

Andrew Lincoln is pretty sure The Walking Dead will cough up the dough to keep Lauren Cohen. We’ll see. In the meantime, here’s the first look at Morgan on Fear the Walking Dead. (Garrett Dillahunt is going to be the real reason to watch this season.)

Time’s Up

CBS News removed Political Director Steve Chaggaris for inappropriate behavior and replaced him with Caitlin Conant.

Claire Foy has finally said something publicly about The Crown pay nonsense.¬†Basically: “Weird, but not.”

Transparent is having a rough go of it according to Jay Duplass, and not just because of Jeffrey Tambor. (But mostly because of Jeffrey Tambor.)

Tavis Smiley admitted to “multiple sexual encounters with subordinates” according to PBS.
