Three networks series were renewed last week, so I’ve updated my big renewal/cancelation gallery over at Chron.com. No one can accuse me of not being servicey.
Watchmen is not coming back, y’all. I mean, technically it still could. But it probably isn’t. Anyway, I look forward to it sweeping the limited series category at the Emmys this year and will RIOT if it does not.
The Friends reunion is happening to no one’s surprise. And I know people really seem to care but isn’t what they really want is a Friends sequel?
“Mad” Mike Hughes, a flat-earther and daredevil, died this weekend when his homemade steam-powered rocket crashed soon after launching. What I hadn’t known until this morning was that the launch was being filmed by the Science Channel for a show called Homemade Astronauts, which just seems WILDLY IRRESPONSIBLE and maybe should be canceled before any other anti-science idiots die.
72 hours. That’s roughly how much time a Bachelor/Bachelorette spends with the person they get “engaged” to before the big proposal. 72 HOURS. That is not a lot of hours, you guys.
Supernatural spoiler, I guess:
Today, there were two "lasts" on #Supernatural:
First, it was the last time Cas & Uriel (@RobertRayWisdom) will be together.
The other "last" is too spoilery to post here.

Modern Family celebrated their last day of filming.
The Auschwitz Memorial has some issues with the Amazon Nazi-hunting series Hunters:
Auschwitz was full of horrible pain & suffering documented in the accounts of survivors. Inventing a fake game of human chess for @huntersonprime is not only dangerous foolishness & caricature. It also welcomes future deniers. We honor the victims by preserving factual accuracy. pic.twitter.com/UM2KYmA4cw

Pete Buttigieg and Colin Jost were in the same dorm at Harvard. So that’s awkward.

I mean, it’s not great, but I’ve seen worse:
Fox is in talks to acquire Tubi, the free streaming service.
Because Trump ridiculed my reputation, laughed at my looks, & dragged me through the mud, after 26 years, ELLE fired me. I don't blame Elle. It was the great honor of my life writing "Ask E. Jean." I blame @realdonaldtrump.https://t.co/vYIVL6yDIp

Brian Hickerson, Hayden Panettiere’s boyfriend, has been arrested for assaulting her on Valentine’s Day. He seems nice.
Chris Tavarez, a former Disney Channel actor, has been given 300 days in prison for a domestic abuse incident.
Breakdown Services, a casting service, has been hit with a sexual assault lawsuit, alleging an employee harassed, threatened and raped another employee.
Jeremy Irons had to walk back some old comments that he had made in the past about feminism, same-sex marriage, and abortion that weren’t exactly … progressive.
Hey, Woody Allen has made yet another movie about an older man who has an affair with a younger woman. Glad to see he’s still so creative.
Just a reminder of last week when Elizabeth Warren tore open Michael Bloomberg’s chest over non-disclosure agreements his company has forced some unknown number of women to sign. That was delicious. Bloomberg has since said he would release three women from their NDAs. OK.
