HBO released their third-quarter report yesterday, and made some news:
You’ll be able to stream Dune on HBO Max this afternoon starting at 5 p.m., CST, a day earlier than originally announced.
There is also already some talk about Dune 2; a Sopranos series based on The Many Saints of Newark; and more Matrix sequels. I, for one, was not furious at The Many Saints of Newark, unlike some Sopranos fans, and think that a series set in this time period could be really interesting.
HBO and HBO Max lost nearly 2 million subscribers after Amazon removed the channels from Amazon Channels.
Update on the Meghan McCain mess: ABC is reportedly “furious” over her allegations that The View is a toxic workplace, and are saying “privately” (i.e., unofficially) that she did not leave by her own choice.
Jonathan Goodwin, the escape artist who was injured on America’s Got Talent: Extreme, posted from the hospital on Instagram, thanking everyone for their support, and noting that he has a long road to recovery.
Issa Rae promises she won’t “Game of Thrones” the ending of Insecure. I’m just glad to hear a show other than Lost become the default metaphor for a terrible series finale.
Brian Cox says that Succession will probably end after two more seasons — but I’m unclear if he’s counting the season that is currently airing? I think he is, but ~shrug~. (Also, none of that is official — Cox has no idea how long the show will go on, he’s just guessing.)
David Duchovney auditioned for all the lead roles on Full House, and now I desperately need to see him as Uncle Jesse.
