Top Chef is finally FINALLY doing a season here in Houston. A few seasons ago, you might remember, Top Chef did a Texas season, but they wanted Houston to pay up to be included, and we were like, “Nah.” I don’t know if Houston chose to pony up this time around, but if we did, good. 1. The economy in the pandemic world is a very different animal than in the pre-pandemic world, and if this gives a boost to our tourism and hospitality industries, it’s worth it, but 2. I’m glad we’re not being lumped in with other Texas cities and getting an entire season (or most of a season, they always take the finale someplace else) devoted to our wonderful, inventive, diverse, exciting culinary scene. It’s time the world sees what we’ve been enjoying down here. And now if you’ll excuse me, I have to go figure out how to stalk this production.
Yes, in fact, Mayim Bialik would like to be the host of Jeopardy!
Paramount+ has launched a bundle with Showtime for $13 a month, just in time for that Dexter reboot to debut.
United States of Al had to scrap the premiere episode they had planned when the fall of Kabul happened and ruined everything. The new premiere will now focus on the efforts to get people out of Afghanistan. (And honestly, the most unrealistic thing about the series is that the Trump Administration would allow a translator to immigrate here in the first place.)
Cary Fukunaga is out here talking shit about Nic Pizzolatto, and I am SO HERE FOR IT.
We could be getting a reboot of Quantum Leap after all …
Here’s the oral history of Revenge if you’re interested.

Elvira coming out is cool, but Elvira's girlfriend not opening every conversation with "Elvira is my girlfriend" for almost two decades is an Olympian act of superhuman will that should be looked on with sheer, abject awe. pic.twitter.com/7dkaCGXUQw

Sending love to @WillieGarson’s son Nathen. Your dad was strong and respected in his community of fellow actors and his philanthropy was constant and committed. I’m grateful I knew him. He was also really really funny.❤️
