Let’s guess which show will be canceled next. My money is on …

Oh hey, here’s another Chron gallery, although this one will probably inspire less consternation. Last week, Daredevil and Take Two were canceled, and a few other shows were not given additional episode orders, so I’ve updated the Renew/Cancel predictions accordingly. But I warn you, we won’t know how good any of these predictions are for a while. Over the past couple of years, the networks have gone from competing to see who would be the first to cancel a series, to seeing how long they can postpone the announcement of the inevitable. As a result, it’s possible we won’t know which of these shows have been officially canceled until late April, early May. But if there was one show that would be canceled before the Upfronts, maybe even in the next couple of weeks while everyone is distracted by the holidays? Alec Baldwin, pack your talk show that NO ONE ASKED FOR and please see yourself to the door.

Here’s a breakdown of how the networks are going to cover President Bush’s funeral tomorrow.

Uhhh … hey, guys, whatcha’ll up to?

Kit Harington is not going to be in any Game of Thrones spinoffs, which, you know, no duh.

You won’t guess what Reddit’s most discussed show of the year was, I promise.

The Twilight Zone reboot just cast three more amazing actors for an upcoming episode (see below). Here’s everything we know about the reboot so far.

Here’s what kind of dystopian hellscape 2018 is: a Nathan For You scheme actually happened:

Mr. Big is in denial about the death of Mr. Big.

Max Greenfield is right: The Leftovers should have won the Emmy for Outstanding Drama for last year even if it wasn’t eligible.

Do not click this if you are eating something right now. Also, Ramona: gross. Gross, Ramona, so gross.

Love horror and love Christmas? Here are five classic creepy Christmas episodes of television to get you in the spirit and where to stream them.

More great news for horror fans: The Exorcist series is now streaming on Hulu. If you missed this series, do yourself a favor and catch up. I genuinely think it was one of the best horror series I’ve seen in a long time, if ever.

And in other streaming news, despite the scare that Friends was leaving Netflix on January 1st, it seems the sitcom is going to remain on Netflix through 2019. However, Warner is launching its own streaming service (oh for fuck’s sake) at the end of 2019 and the series will eventually move there.

The guy who was the director and producer for Halo isn’t going to be the director and producer anymore. Hmmm.

Here’s why You is moving from Lifetime to Netflix. (Basically, because “creative differences” and Netflix already had streaming rights.)

The Casting Society of America — which is a thing, apparently — is going to honor Laura Dern and Tina Fey for some reason.

The Blaze is merging with CRTV, another conservative media brand, putting Glen Beck and Mark Levin under the same roof, saints preserve us. Some media watchers think that this is just a ploy to try to get Fox News to buy them and add them to their new streaming service, but we’ll have to wait and see.



Time’s Up

Dear Men of Wall Street (and all men, honestly): the answer to sexual harassment allegations is not to sexually discriminate. Have dinner with your female colleagues! Just don’t go all Neil deGrasse Tyson on them and start stripping off your clothes and talking about how you need a physical “release” and giving her “special” handshakes, and you’ll probably be fine! This is not hard to figure out, guys!

Kay Felder, a Raptors player, has been cut from the team after being charged with domestic violence. 

Kareem Hunt, a former running back for the Kansas City Chiefs, has been let go from the team after a video of him attacking a woman in a hotel was released by TMZ.

Piers Morgan piersmorganed a dumb bad transphobic joke and dragged Dick Van Dyke into it and Dick Van Dyke was having NONE OF IT. 

God damned legend.

    1. Oh jeez! I didn’t mean to get your hopes up. Just trying to preach the gospel of a woefully underwatched series.
