‘Watchmen,’ your next obsession, is coming. Tick tock, y’all.

Typically, I post trailers and teasers in the “Dates” section, but I’m too excited about Damon Lindelof’s upcoming Watchmen series to bury it at the bottom of the post. Having created two of my very favorite shows, Lost and The Leftovers, I am anxious to see what Lindelof does with The Watchmen universe:


Lindelof has been a fan of the Watchmen series since he was a kid, and he wants everyone to know that he is honored to working with material that Alan Moore and Dave Gibbons created. Awesome:

Liam Cunningham claims it was Emilia Clarke’s coffee cup in that Game of Thrones‘ scene; Clarke has another theory:

Hey, here are a bunch of pictures from the next Game of Thrones episode:

The Game of Thrones Live Concert Experience is heading out on the road again this summer. It comes to Houston on September 27. You can buy tickets here.

Prepare for Hulu and Disney+ to be the hubs for all your Marvel TV needs. Long story short: be prepared to say goodbye to Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. (even though ABC is owned by Disney).

Happy 25th anniversary of the saddest scene in The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air history.


Janelle Evans has been fired from Teen Mom 2 after it was revealed her husband shot and killed their family dog because he’s a monster.


A BBC radio broadcaster compared the royal baby to a monkey and then tried to claim he didn’t realize the racist connotations but come the fuck on. He’s been fired.

David Cross talks about that disastrous Arrested Development interview, and he helps clarify what I suspected: that in the moment everyone was talking over one another and trying to make an uncomfortable situation less uncomfortable — but that when reading the transcript back, it became obvious how bad it actually was. The lesson here, for everyone, is to learn how to listen.

Al Franken and Mark Halperin are trying to slide back into public life. What do the women they harassed think of that? Spoiler: they’re not happy: “Why should we have to rack our brains about what’s appropriate punishment for them?” says Dupuy. “Let’s talk about all the brilliant women who walked away from the Hill, who are not currently lawmakers or journalists, because they are tired of getting their asses grabbed by old men.”

Fresh on the heels of her show getting canceled, Busy Philipps has zero fucks left to give. She opened her show earlier this week discussing Georgia’s barbaric abortion bill and revealing that she herself has had an abortion. It was powerful and she is a badass. 

Soledad O’Brien has called out her former network, CNN, for a lack of diversity among their executives. GOOD FOR HER. O’Brien is a goddamned force of nature on Twitter and you should follow her.

The Chicago Cubs are banning for life a fan who made a racist gesture behind an African-American broadcaster. GOOD.
