‘The Bachelor’ avoids making history, yet again, in favor of another boring white guy

Welp. Pilot Peter is, indeed, the next Bachelor. Mike Johnson — a handsome and charming Air Force vet who loves his mother and grandmother, who was respectful to Hannah and didn’t slut-shame her or try to gaslight her when she dumped him, and who had won over a huge portion of the Bachelor audience — was right there for the. taking, but The Bachelor decided to go with yet another mediocre white guy instead. Coooool.

GO DATE DEMI LOVATO, MIKE JOHNSON. ABC DOESN’T DESERVE YOU.

If you were going to go with another white guy, Pennywise would have been a more interesting option:

Jessica Lange is not coming back to American Horror Story and I just have to come to terms with that.

A look at how “save our show” campaigns play out (and why The OA is screwed).

The Amazon Lord of the Rings series is going to be filmed in New Zealand, in case you were wondering.

A few final (hopefully) notes about Shane Gillis and Saturday Night Live and the whole dumb debacle. Apparently, he was cast to appeal to conservative viewers — now what it says about conservatives that the comedian they found to appeal to them peddled in racist, homophobic and sexist “humor” I will leave unsaid.

Bill Burr and Jim Jeffries defended Gillis, arguing that his firing is just “cancel culture” and, “The guy shouldn’t have been fired. It was just a couple things back in his history. We’re gonna go through everyone’s history?” The podcast in question was from LAST YEAR.

Hahaha, Netflix tried to sell itself to Blockbuster in 2000 for $50 million, and Blockbuster laughed them out of the room. WHO’S LAUGHING NOW?

Everything you wanted to know about Charlie Day (including the fact that he and Jimmi Simpson used to be roommates).

President Sociopath said that he never met Cokie Roberts and that she wasn’t nice to him because it’s always about him. He’s the bride at every wedding and the corpse at every funeral.

Martin Luther King III is calling for a boycott of the NFL until Colin Kaepernick is finally put on an NFL roster. DONE! (But do I have to start watching if he’s hired? Because, no.)

Feel better soon, Alex Trebeck.

You’re running out of time to pick a show for me to hate-blog. Evil is still in the lead, but Stumptown has pulled ahead of Emergence and is making a run for Evil’s spot:
