As y’all know, I’m not a huge fan of Seth MacFarlane, but when the guy is right, the guy is right.

Unsurprisingly, Ted Lasso delivered Apple TV+’s biggest day with the season two premiere last month. Everybody loves Ted Lasso.

But it looks like no one loves Raymond.

David Chase is as surprised as anyone that the love for The Sopranos has endured — but he shouldn’t be. As far as I’m concerned, it remains the best television show of all time. There have been some strong contenders — just off the top of my head, I would point to Breaking Bad, Fargo, Atlanta, and Watchmen — but The Sopranos endures.

The Sopranos is receiving the Monopoly treatment. And Brooklyn Nine-Nine is receiving the Clue treatment.

Here’s the true story behind the Dybbuk Box, about which there have been three movies made and countless episodes of various ghost shows. Spoiler alert: It’s a hoax. (A hoax I have actually been in the same room with.)

Former Dancing with the Stars contestant and co-star of Top Grier, Hayes Grier, got himself arrested for violently assaulting another man.

It’s the 21st century, and The Hallmark Channel only just this summer featured their first same-sex kiss. Progress, I suppose.

Oh my God, do not smear mud on yourself to make it look like you helped in flood recovery efforts when you did not help in flood recovery efforts.


Kirsten Storms, who had brain surgery, has returned to the set of General Hospital, thank goodness.

Get better soon, Ashley Judd!

Kathy Griffin has lung cancer and will have surgery to remove part of her lung. Get better soon!

And in positive news:

Take care of yourself, Bob.
