I can’t decide if chicken or squirrel is the best:

Having a rough day? I’ve got something that will cheer you up. It begins with this tweet thread, which in and of itself is uplifting and sweet:

But then, Ted Lasso saw the tweet which made the whole thing sweeter:


And even better, Dolly followed the Ted Lasso tweet with this one, sending Lil Nas X some love for his (lovely) cover of “Jolene”:

Dolly Parton is America’s angel.

Yes, Hannah Waddingham has The Shame Bell. AS SHE SHOULD.

Have you watched LuLaRich, the bananas documentary about the LuLaRoe pyramid scheme, yet? If not, add it to your list of things to binge this weekend, TRUST ME. If you have watched it, here’s more from the breakout star of the series, LaShae Kimbrough. And those of you who are mad about her cruise ship comment? Your racism is showing. She wasn’t wrong.

Steve Van Zandt very nearly was Tony Soprano. THANK GOD HBO KNEW WHAT THEY WERE DOING.

Here are the ratings for the new network shows (so far). I look forward to seeing what La Brea‘s numbers are next week compared to this one.

The time Ellen Pompeo handed Denzel Washington’s ass to him on the set of Grey’s Anatomy.

Make the most of your Netflix viewing with these 11 tips. (I have been making a ton of use of the downloading feature that allows you to watch offline in my travels this year. Amazon and Apple TV also have this, so what’s up, Hulu and HBO Max? Get on board, y’all.)

Here are the Documentary Emmy winners if that’s your thing.

I don’t watch The Real Housewives of Potomac, so I don’t really care about the actual contents of this story, but I would be remiss if I did not call attention to this absolutely bonkers headline: “Here’s What RHOP’s Mia Thornton Was Thinking When She Threw Salad in Candiace Dillard’s Face.”

I’m not willing to eat at Applebee’s for any reason, but otherwise, I agree with every single word of this essay about America’s most irritating commercial.

Of course Dog the Bounty Hunter is shopping a new show, and using the Gabby Petito tragedy for his own gain. Obviously.

Wendy Williams continues to have ongoing medical issues, and the return of her show has been pushed back again. Hope she gets the attention she needs.

Stay strong, Shannen Doherty.

One thought on “The ‘Ted Lasso’/Dolly Parton crossover you didn’t know you needed until now

  1. I was watching Paramont + the other day, we have the ads and they played that Applebee’s commercial every time! I kept my finger on the mute button the whole time. I havent watched anything on that platform since.
