Tick tock, Matt Gaetz!

It is a Tuesday and you need to look at this adorable family of geese:


As expected, Matt Gaetz’s (presumably former) buddy Joel Greenberg in an agreement with federal prosecutors, pled guilty to six criminal charges, including sex trafficking of a child, aggravated identity theft, and wire fraud, and in exchange, prosecutors dropped 27 other charges pending against him. Part of the agreement explained how Greenberg paid women for sex with him and unnamed others.

In short, tick tock, Matt Gaetz.

Meanwhile, Matt Gaetz is tearing the women of The View apart. (J/K they’ve always hated each other.)

Wait, a powerful man was a creep to the women he worked with and unfaithful to his wife? I AM SHOCKED. (But in all seriousness, mad props to Melinda French Gates’ P.R. team: y’all are killing it.)

Joe Rogan, who has a $100,000,000 contract with Spotify, is worried that straight white men are not going to be allowed to talk because of “wokeness.” The thing that is most irritating to me about notorious idiot Joe Rogan is that because he was on one of my favorite TV comedies of all time, NewsRadio, every time his name comes up in a stupid story like this one, my first reaction is, “OH COME ON, JOE ROGAN,” instead of just laughing it off or ignoring it like I would with Alex Jones or the My Pillow Guy or any other half-witted moron with a platform.

T.I. is now being investigated by the LAPD for drugging and raping women.

Storage Wars star Jarrod Schulz has been arrested for domestic violence against his former co-star Brandi Passante.

American Idol season 18 contestant, Doug Kiker, has also been arrested for domestic violence.

Drew Barrymore basically apologized to Dylan Farrow for working with Woody Allen after the allegations about what he did to Farrow emerged.

Scottish actor Kevin Guthrie has been given a three-year jail sentence for raping a woman.

Several rape charges against the one-time reality TV star, Grant Robicheaux and his girlfriend Cerissa Riley, have been dropped.

The Les Moonves fight with CBS over his severance package has finally been resolved so hopefully we should never have to hear his name again.

All Other TV News

I had just the other day tried to look up if CBS had set a premiere date for Evil, and it turns out they hadn’t because they’re moving it to Paramount+. It’s such a good show, I hope it finds a safe place there.

Amazon wants to buy MGM for about $10 billion, otherwise known as Jeff Bezos’ pocket change.

Dan Harmon’s new animated series at Fox, Krapopolis, will be the first series “curated on Blockchain” and it will sell NFTs. I have NO IDEA what any of that means, except that NFTs are stupid.

Sometimes shows come back: if you are a Prodigal Son fan who doesn’t want it canceled, here are some steps you can take.

GLAAD, BLM, the Center for Media and Democracy, CHANGE, Indivisible, MoveOn, NARAL Pro-Choice America are among 40 progressive organizations calling for an advertiser boycott of Fox News. And that’s great, but as long as cable channels are bundled without allowing customers to pick and choose which ones they actually want to pay for, this is a kind of toothless gesture.

Here are the winners of the first-ever MTV Movie & TV Awards: Unscripted.

Congratulations, Ariana Grande and Dalton Gomez!

Congratulations, also, to Justin Hartley and Sofia Pernas!

Going Viral

Wow, according to The New York Times, we had fewer than 30,000 new cases yesterday. It’s the lowest number of cases since September, and the fewest deaths SINCE JULY. Soon, I’ll be turning this section into a weekly one, instead of reporting on it every day, and that feels great.

California will keep masks through at least June 15. D.C. is lifting theirs on Monday.

The Knicks and the Nets will have maskless fully-vaccinated fan sections at their playoff games.

BravoCon will return in person in New York City in October. The New York City Marathon will also be back this fall.

Europe is slowly reopening as cases drop there.

83% of Japan does not want the Olympics to be held there this summer. And I can’t blame them.

This is an interesting opinion piece written by a pair of Christian Evangelicals arguing that the only people who can convince vaccine-hesitant Evangelicals to get vaccinated are other Evangelicals in their communities. Get on it, guys!

Ricky Schroder has apologized to the Costco employee he berated but is still ranting about “corporate overlords.” Calm down, Ricky.

One thought on “Tick tock, Matt Gaetz!

  1. Man, I had REALLY been hesitant about adding yet another streaming platform and ST: Discovery almost got me on board with Paramount+ but Evil is just so, so good. It might be what gets me on board. But I’m not happy about it!
