I don’t want to get anyone’s hopes up, but George R.R. Martin is saying some promising things about THAT book …

OH MY GOD IS GEORGE R.R. MARTIN ACTUALLY GOING TO FINISH THE WINDS OF WINTER? In a blog post, Martin wrote the following:

 I know you want WINDS, and I am going to give it to you… but I am delighted that you stayed with me for this one as well.  Your patience and unflagging support means the world to me.

Enjoy the read.   Me, I am back in my fortress of solitude, and back in Westeros.   It won’t be tomorrow, and it won’t be next week, but you will get the end of A SONG OF ICE AND FIRE.  Meanwhile, you have the final season of GAME OF THRONES coming, and the new show that is not yet officially called THE LONG NIGHT being cast, and a couple more shows still being scripted… and a few other cool things in the works as well.

Winter is not the only thing that is coming.

Current Mood: excited excited

YOU HAD BETTER NOT BE TOYING WITH US, GEORGE. AND LET ME JUST SAY THIS: YOU BETTER FINISH BOTH OF THOSE BOOKS, GEORGE. DON’T GIVE US THE WINDS OF WINTER AND THEN MAKE US WAIT 37 YEARS FOR A DREAM OF SPRING. DON’T YOU PROMISE ME AN END TO A SONG OF ICE AND FIRE UNLESS YOU CAN GIVE US BOTH OF THOSE BOOKS IN THE NEXT DECADE.

Meanwhile, Beric Dondarrion is warning us to not trust Game of Thrones spoilers, that the show is deliberately leaking lies.

Time Magazine named journalists the Person of the Year, calling them the “guardians” in the “war on truth.” They specifically honored “murdered Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi, Filipina reporter Maria Ressa, two Reuters journalists currently imprisoned in Myanmar, Wa Lone and Kyaw Soe Oo, and the entire staff at Maryland’s Capital Gazette newspaper.” Well done, Time Magazine.

Kathie Lee Gifford is leaving The Today Show to drink 10 a.m. Chardonnay in the privacy of her own home.

Carol Burnett will receive the first Carl Burnett Award, which, you know, seems appropriate.

Sarah Silverman and Billy Eichner responded to Nick Cannon calling out Silverman and other female comedians for using gay slurs. I get Silverman’s point (or, rather, the point of the gay man she reteweeted), that intention and context matters. But I am Team Eichner: how about we just don’t use the f-word, no matter what the intention?

Meanwhile, the Oscars are toying with the idea of No Host. Honestly? THAT’D BE JUST FINE.

Sophia Bush is on a tear: She went on Dax Shepherd’s podcast where she explained why she left Chicago P.D. (because they filmed in Chicago in the winter and Chicago in the winter SUCKS) and said the producers of One Tree Hill were “really, deeply inappropriate” when it came to her relationship with Chad Michael Murray: “They ran, like, TV ads about it, it was really ugly,” she said. “They made practice of taking advantage of people’s personal lives, and not just for me and for my ex, for other actors on the show who would share — as you do when you get close to people — deeply personal things that were happening in their lives and they would wind up in storylines. It wasn’t OK… It was opportunistic and ugly. When you run a show, you’re like a parent, you’re supposed to protect your flock, and it was the opposite of that… It was a very ugly situation on their part. I think they kind of lived for the drama.” DAMN, DON’T HOLD BACK, SOPHIA.

Ellen Pompeo has not spoken to Patrick Dempsey since he left Grey’s Anatomy. Boy, bye.

Thanks to Fixer Upper, Waco is having a tourism boom. (Guys, Waco is not a tourist town.)

Kenan Thompson is threatening a Good Burger reunion.

CBS is selling Television City to a developer. The Late Late Show with James Corden, The Price Is Right and The Young and the Restless will continue to film there for the next five years

Robin DiMaggio, the former musical director on The Arsenio Hall Show, embezzled money from a charity concert for homeless children. Hope you enjoy The Bad Place, Mr. DiMaggio.
