Get ready to say goodbye to these two long-running shows

Judge Judy is ending after this upcoming 25th season which will run from Fall 2020-2021. I mention those dates because I have a confession to make: I included Judge Judy in my gallery of “Shows That Will End in 2020” but it’s A LIE. I LIED TO THE GOOD READERS OF CHRON.COM, Y’ALL. IT DOESN’T END UNTIL 2021.

Also, Hawaii Five-0 is coming to an end after this season — its final episode will air on April 3. So it IS ending in 2020, but did I use that gallery in this piece? Nope! I AM AN ENIGMA.

Clare Crawley is your new Bachelorette. At 38, she will be the oldest Bachelorette in the show’s history, and you know what? GOOD FOR HER. You know how old the remaining contestants on The Bachelor all are right now? TWENTY-THREE. You don’t know SHIT when you’re 23. And go ahead and guess how old the oldest Bachelor was: If you guessed 40, then go pick out a prize. What I’m saying is it’s about damn time we’ve had an adult woman on this dumb show.

Netflix is going to have its own comedy festival this spring, with Ali Wong, Amy Schumer, Bill Burr, Dave Chappelle, David Letterman, Jamie Foxx, Jane Fonda, and Lily Tomlin, Kevin Hart and Martin Lawrence set to appear. Which, great, but is right now the moment to announce any kind of festival?

BECAUSE CORONAVIRUS. Amazing Race has shut down filming, CNN is restricting travel for its employees, Apple and Disney were hit hard on Wall Street. Things aren’t great!

Christopher Moltisanti and Bobby Baccalieri are doing a Sopranos podcast. Yes to this.

Oh dear. Orlando Jones is now dragging Ricky Whittle into his fight with American Gods.

Lucifer has edged that much closer to a season 6.

Why didn’t people watch John Mulaney’s Saturday Night Live? IT WAS REALLY GOOD. I have all the sketches in my SNL post. GO WATCH THEM.

Good news for those of y’all who mentioned Terriers as the show you’d bring back: it’s streaming on Hulu now. Also streaming on Hulu: all 9 seasons of American Horror Story.

Meanwhile, Hillary Duff would very much like the Lizzie McGuire reboot to join them. Hillary Duff is now publicly appealing to Disney to move Lizzie McGuire over to Hulu. (I would not hold my breath if I was her.)

YOUR SHOW IS TOO DARK. Please add The Walking Dead and The Outsider to this list, thnx.


Grammy-winner Duffy opened up about her long hiatus from music, explaining in an Instagram post that she had been raped, drugged and held captive.

Do not be fooled, Johnny Depp is a trash person.

Fucking Harvey Weinstein is still in the hospital and NOT IN JAIL WHERE HE BELONGS.

Chris Matthews has a long history of being gross and inappropriate with women. I can only assume he has an iron-clad contract with MSNBC.

Adele Haenel stormed out of the French Cesar awards after Roman Polanski won Best Director. Good for her.
