And look! GOATS! This took place in San Jose, California and it is wonderful:
I’m dead 😂☠️ When I got back from the store all the goats had broken through the fence and were recking havoc on our street

Full disclosure: this bit was on Jimmy Kimmel Live! on Monday night but was buried by all the other crap out there. But I wanted to pull it out and bring it to your attention because it is as funny as it is accurate as it is disturbing. I present President Boss Baby having a tantrum when confronted with his coronavirus failures:

TV showrunners aren’t giving away all of their secrets, because some might still use stories that they weren’t able to film this season in upcoming seasons, but here’s what some of them had to say about how their shows were supposed to end before everything came to a grinding halt.
Good news for Jeopardy! fans: they have new episodes that will begin airing next week.
Once Upon a Quarantine, a Lifetime series that follows four couples as they film themselves in lockdown, will debut on May 20 in case you want to see other people be bored in their homes and fight with their kids over homeschooling, just for a refreshing change.
And Design at Your Door, a home design show that delivers “a box of specially curated décor elements” to homeowners who then record themselves follow experts’ decorating advice while filming themselves and the results will debut on HGTV on June 11.
Last Man Standing will address the coronavirus — if it’s renewed for season 9. (It will be renewed for season 9.)
NBC News is hosting a town hall on anti-Asian sentiment this afternoon. It will be available to stream on a number of services, including Peacock.
The Fox lots have put up posters thanking essential workers, like Bob.
Los Angeles’ stay-at-home order has been extended for another three months, which will certainly make it difficult for TV and film productions to start back up (at least in L.A.).
But Tyler Perry is ready to start filming in Atlanta.
And they’re going back to work in Spain.
Looking for a new face mask? You can get a disturbing one of your own face like Jimmy Kimmel below, or you can get one that celebrates your favorite show. I’m not lying, I would wear that Lil’ Sebastian one.
Surprise, surprise: Dr. Facui told senators that reopening too early could be catastrophic. Not that that idiot Rand Paul — WHO WENT SWIMMING IN THE SENATE POOL WHILE INFECTED — wanted to hear it.
Meanwhile, Tucker Carlson is attacking Dr. Facui, pointing out that he hasn’t been “elected” to anything, because YEP! That’s definitely how we determine who to trust with medical and scientific advice: the person the voters — who are overwhelmingly neither scientists nor doctors, choose. Guess this asshole doesn’t realize that the majority of — if not all — White House and Capitol advisors aren’t elected?

Hey, Paul Manafort has been released from jail. Must be nice to be a politically-connected white guy right now.
Oh, and Jared Kushner isn’t ruling out the possibility that they will postpone the election. I mean, technically the White House CAN’T postpone the election — Congress determines when Election Day is, but precedent and the Constitution hasn’t stopped these assholes anytime in the past three and a half years, so why should they start now?
Nick Cordero, the Broadway actor who has BEEN THROUGH IT, woke from his coma. Here’s to hoping he has a speedy recovery.
Sumo wrestler Shobushi has died from complications from COVID-19.
Universal Orlando will reopen CityWalk on May 14. The park remains closed.
Solstice Studios intends to be the first with a new movie in the theaters: they announced the Russell Crowe thriller, Unhinged, will open in theaters on July 1. We’ll see.
Broadway’s Plaza Suite, starring Sarah Jessica Parker and Matthew Broderick, and the Michael Jackson-themed show, MJ, have both been pushed back a year.
Ken Jennings and Elon Musk having a twitter fight is just not how I saw the future unfolding.
Please don’t assault Red Lobster or Target employees. And also WEAR A DAMN MASK.
Spongebob Squarepants and Smash are the two most recent casts to do table reads to raise money for charity.
Melissa McCarthy, Ben Falcone, Nat Faxon, and Jim Rash are going to offer online acting and directing classes to raise money for the Groundlings.
Justin Baldoni’s studio has launched “The Six Feet Apart Experiment,” a film making competition challenging creatives in this moment, and hoping to raise awareness about cystic fibrosis.
New York City has broken a record! 58 days without a pedestrian death! Yay?
