Happy Boxing Day! Here’s what little TV news I could dig up today.

Happy Boxing Day! I hope you won your boxing match? Received a lot of … boxes? I don’t know how this works.

So, there’s not a whole lot of news out there as the country is still pretty much laying on its living room floor surrounded by torn wrapping paper and  empty shirt boxes and waiting for the Game of Thrones marathon to start, but here’s what you’ve missed over the last couple of days: the government is still shut down, the President basically told a seven-year-old that Santa’s not real and Kevin Spacey lost his damn mind. But we’ll get to that in a minute.

In other TV-adjacent news:

Apparently, Dolton Colton, our virginal Bachelor, deleted all of his tweets last week after Reality Steve posted spoilers for the season. HMMM. MYSTERY.

The woman who Patricia Arquette portrays in Escape at Dannemora is not fond of Ben Stiller’s work.

If you are obsessed with Dirty John (like I may or may not be), here are pictures of the real people involved in the story.

That Black Mirror choose-your-own-adventure movie has over five hours of material apparently.

Roseanne Barr is going to address the Israeli parliament next month because these are the times we live in now.

So this is amazing: someone sent in a picture of Mickey Rourke and Axl Rose to a local news station in celebration of “Max and Geraldine Bailey’s” 50th wedding anniversary:

Christina El Moussa of Flip or Flop has married British TV host Ant Anstead which apparently was a surprise to some people who know who Christina El Moussa is.

Ross Inia of Below Deck was arrested for disorderly intoxication and battery.

Look at this asshole:

Sex Monster News

Kevin Spacey is going to be arraigned by the Nantucket District Court for indecent assault and battery. When the news broke, Spacey released this video, delivering a bizarre soliloquy as his House of Cards‘ character, Frank, essentially suggesting that the character never died? And that he (Frank and Kevin) should get away with his crimes? I don’t know — it’s bananas.

People had feelings:

But seriously, fuck off you demented narcissist.

The Los Angeles District Attorney’s office has declined to pursue a sexual assault case against Steven Seagal.

Photographer Bruce Weber has been accused of molesting five male models.

And this isn’t #MeToo news, but if you were looking for another reason to be grossed out by Louis C.K., I’ve got one for you.
