Say hello to Wednesday, everyone!

Obviously, today’s big news is that Joe Biden has chosen Kamala Harris as his Vice President. I’m not going to lie, Harris was my first choice for the Democratic nominee and I was very disappointed when she dropped out of the race as early as she did. So it’s not much surprise that I think she’s not just a valuable asset to the ticket, she’s the best choice. She’s intelligent, charismatic, talented, ambitious, terrifying to mediocre men, and as the first Black woman and the first Asian-American woman to be on a major party ticket, her choice is an exciting moment in history.

Right, Katie Holmes?

Also excited: Maya Rudolph, for obvious reasons. “Oh shit …” was her literal response, before adding that she’s ready and willing to return to Saturday Night Live even in the middle of this pandemic.

(More responses here.)

And yes, the sexist and racist attacks have already begun, led by President SexistRacist. He called her a “nasty” woman for the way she treated Brett Kavanaugh during his confirmation hearing, also known as “The Moment Therese Hoped Kamala Harris Would Run for President.”

And then he pulled this out of his ass this morning:

Lol, ok.

Buckle up, kiddos, it’s only going to get worse. 83 days until Election Day. 68 days until early voting here in Texas. Let’s go.

Oh, and here’s something else President Putty Brain tweeted out this morning:

I’m not a huge Bill Maher fan, but I feel compelled to include the bit that pissed the TV-Watcher-in-Chief off so much so that you have the full story:

This was inevitable:

All Other TV News

This doesn’t bode well: the creators of Avatar: The Last Airbender have left the live-action series at Netflix. “And who knows? Netflix’s live-action adaptation of Avatar has the potential to be good,” he [Michael Dante DiMartino] wrote. “It might turn out to be a show many of you end up enjoying. But what I can be certain about is that whatever version ends up on-screen, it will not be what Bryan and I had envisioned or intended to make.”

Ruby Rose has revealed that a little time in quarantine gave her the opportunity to really reflect on whether or not she wanted to continue on Batwoman following her on-set accident (and that answer was HELL NO).

Fox News is about to launch a live-streaming subscription service, Fox News International.

The last Blockbuster is being turned into an Airbnb. This seems right.

Paula Pell is an American treasure, and you should never forget it.

Eugene Levy is a Canadian treasure, and you should never forget it.

Going Viral

The New York Times has a piece on what it’s like to make TV from home, if you’re interested.

The WGA has urged its members to not sign COVD-19 liability waivers. (Good advice really for anyone.)

Sounds like Supernatural should begin filming again in the next couple of weeks!

So apparently, Roku has been giving a platform to a bunch of COVID conspiracy and anti-vaccine conspiracy claptrap, so that’s just great. (Thanks for the tip, Off the Kuff!)

Trini Lopez, the actor, and singer of “If I Had a Hammer,” has died of COVID-19.

Pac-12 has joined the Big 10 in postponing fall sports (read: college football). The Southeastern Conference remains a major holdout and the Atlantic Coast Conference and Big 12 haven’t made a decision, but the window to do so is closing. The Pac-12 plan as of now is to have one season from February to April, and then the regular season to begin in 2021 in August.

New York Comic Con is going virtual for 2020.

In one Georgia county, 925 school kids are quarantining after schools reopened TOO EARLY.

“Don’t worry about the basement Bobbys or negative Nancys,” read the sign held by Morgan Morrison, 28, the mother of a second grader who “lost her mask on the second day.”

Ms. Morrison said she and her husband do not wear masks either. “I feel like before we’re even born, God has a plan for when he’s going to take us to heaven,” she said. “There’s nothing we can do to stop it.”

oprah disbelief

Facebook has removed some 7 million “harmful” COVID-19 posts. Another 98 million posts have been tagged with warning labels. THIS SHIT IS WHY COLLEGE FOOTBALL IS CANCELED, GUYS.

Meanwhile, here in Texas: “Texas saw its largest COVID-19 case increase in nearly a week with 8,402 new infections, according to a Houston Chronicle analysis of state data.

The increase — the highest since last Wednesday — brought the statewide total to 516,686 cases. Another 239 deaths brought the fatality count to 9,165. This is the 8th highest single-day increase in deaths since the pandemic began.

Additionally, the dropping average in viral tests has been leading to a sharp increase in the statewide positive test rate. The positivity rate rose from 20.99 percent to 23.97 percent, another record high.”
