Sounds like it might be time to say goodbye to Pete Davidson on ‘SNL.’

So, you know how Pete Davidson has become something of a go-to joke at Saturday Night Live, mostly about him not being there for reason X, Y or Z? Yeah, he wasn’t in on the joke and he’s ready to leave the show. But to be fair to the Saturday Night Live writers, a big part of his persona was his bits on “Weekend Update” where he would sort of wallow in his immaturity, so maybe they assumed they were laughing with him not laughing at him? In any event, this week at studio 8H is going to be awkward. (Reminder: He has a Netflix special debuting today.) (Also a reminder: I will never forgive him for giving my now-Congressman Dan Crenshaw TONS of free publicity.)

God bless Agent Cooper.

MSNBC is sorry for Chris Matthews comparing Bernie Sanders to Nazis, and promise to hire some more pro-Sanders progressives.


A reminder that Piers Morgan is the fucking worst.

In an interview with The New York Times, Hank Azaria explains that he based his version of Apu on Peter Sellers’ character in The Party, a pretty racist movie from the sixties that also inspired Mr. Bean. (Huh!)

Go figure, the glut of television is a mixed blessing for writers: More opportunities! Less pay.

Jussie Smollett pleaded not guilty to new charges of falsifying police records. Good luck with that, Jussie.

Oh, Jules. What I will say is that Jules and Michael’s relationship never seemed healthy on RHONY, but I always suspected HE was the abuser.

Meanwhile, Chad from The Bachelorette being arrested for felony domestic violence is the single most predictable thing ever.

Time’s Up

Harvey Weinstein was found guilty of criminal sex act in the first degree and rape in the third degree, thank the lord. He was not found guilty of the two more serious charges against him, two counts of predatory sexual assault, and that sucks, but I’m just happy some justice is being served. Furthermore, the judge was like, “No you do not get to remain out on bail, you dangerous monster, off to Rikers with you until sentencing!” But then Weinstein claimed he was having chest pains, and sent to a hospital instead, the big fucking coward. That’s alright. He’ll get his.
