Two more shows have been renewed but you won’t be watching them this fall.

Hello, friends. Today is Tuesday, May 19. MAY 19. We are more than halfway through May. How did that happen? What even is time?

Anyway, here is a sweet doggo who loves puddles more than you love anything in the world. This is Stevie the Wonderdog, who has cerebellar hypoplacia, which explains his gait, but it doesn’t take anything away from his sheer joy.

Fox just announced that they have renewed two more shows, and you know what? Because we’re friends, I’ll save you the clicky: Last Man Standing and The Resident. But neither will be on their fall schedule because … you know. This leaves only two Fox shows on the bubble: Prodigal Son and Outmatched. What I hear, they are working out new deals at Prodigal Son and Outmatched will not be returning. BUT THAT’S NOT SET IN STONE.

A new report suggests that somewhere around 60% of scripted series that were set to air later this year will be delayed.

And in fact, Amazon and Netflix are preparing to resume production in France.

Also, Temptation Island is preparing to start production on multiple international versions, including the U.S. Cast and crew will be tested and quarantined during the shoot.

YouTube is launching Create Together, a learning series hosted by Joseph Gordon-Levitt.

President Fuckopotamus announced yesterday that he’s taking hydroxychloroquine just because. This, despite the fact that studies have shown the drug can have lethal side effects, does not protect you from contracting the virus and does not help you recover faster.

Even Fox News’ Neil Cavuto was shocked by this announcement, saying:

“If you are in a risky population here and you are taking this as a preventative treatment to ward off the virus — or, in a worst-case scenario, you are dealing with the virus and you are in this vulnerable population — it will kill you. I cannot stress enough: This will kill you. So, again, whatever benefits the president says this has — and, certainly, it has had for those suffering from malaria, dealing with lupus — this is a leap that that should not be taken casually by those watching at home or assuming, ‘Well, the President of the United States says it’s OK.’”

Grab your clutching pearls because I’m about to tell you something shocking: President Bad Science did not appreciate Cavuto contradicting him:

As for the claim that he’s taking hydroxychloroquine despite it being a terrible idea …

… there are plenty of people who think he’s lying and not actually taking the drug at all, but instead using it as another cultural wedge issue — and, hey, guess what, it’s working:


We should all be worried about Election Day.

California Governor Gavin Newsom has suggested professional sports could come back by June 1.

Neil Gaiman is sorry for being a lockdown-violating asshole.

Good News:

“The Plague Nerdalogues,” a video series featuring Tricia Helfer (“Battlestar Galactica”), Jonathan Frakes (“Star Trek”), Phil LaMarr (“Samurai Jack”) and Brea Grant (“Heroes”) reading beloved monologues, will be available on to raise money for No Kid Hungry.

Dolly Parton and Stephen Colbert were among many celebrities that helped raise money for Covenant House last night.

I understand that the actors are most certainly tired of being asked about the backlash to the ending of Game of Thrones, but calling the fans “ungrateful” is maybe not the best choice.

This is a very good interview with Drea De Matteo (Adriana on The Sopranos), about the show and growing up an Italian woman and how her grandfather was in the mob and it’s just genuinely fascinating stuff that makes me want to go back and recap The Sopranos.

Donald Glover has an idea for the Community movie.

Whoever realized The Last Dance was essentially The Real Housewives of 90s Basketball was a genius.

Ryan Seacrest did NOT have a stroke during American Idol, and in fact was back on Live with Kelly and Ryan this morning, looking fine. But this is the clip that had people worried:

But Wendy Williams will be taking a health break from her show.

There will be 9-1-1 and 9-1-1: Lone Star crossovers next season, which is very optimistic to think there will be a next season.

NBC News is being sued for $2.85 billion by Smile Direct for reporting that online orthodonture is maybe not the best idea.

LOOK. I know this is movie news, but Mindy Kaling and Dan Goor are going to write the script for Legally Blonde 3, so. And yes, Reese Witherspoon is going to star.

Nickelodeon and Time are looking for the “Kid of the Year,” so send in your submissions.

Honestly, I thought Brian Austen Green and Megan Fox had split up years ago, but apparently, not. Also, love is dead, blah blah blah.

One thought on “Two more shows have been renewed but you won’t be watching them this fall.

  1. With the Ryan Seacrest thing and the caveat that I’m a) not a doctor and b) seeing the video for the first time: I’ve had a few syncope events where my blood pressure drops out randomly and I almost black out. Could have been something like that because mine are brought on by stress and too little rest which with as much as he’s on TV recently his schedule lends to both?
