Netflix will now release a weekly top 10 list since you busybodies are so interested

Clever otters are clever.

All Other TV News

Netflix has launched a new site,, which will reveal the week’s top 10 titles on the streaming site. The information is broken down into four categories: Films (English), Films (Non-English), TV (English), and TV (Non-English), and is based on the total number of hours viewed around the world between Monday through Sunday of each week. It’s the most viewing data that Netflix has made publicly available to date.

Speaking of Netflix’s top 10 titles, Red Notice is this week’s number one, which brings me to this from Ryan Reynolds:

Nicole Wallace is not having it:

A little explainer: Chris Christie is out here hawking a new book in which he is trying to crown himself the “reasonable” Republican who will take the party back from Former President QAnon and the irrational anti-truth actors in the party. And most of his interviewers are so entranced by his willingness to talk shit about Former President Superspreader. However, in Christie’s arguments against misinformation and conspiracies, he leaves Fox News out of the conversation. And, like I said, Nicole Wallace isn’t having it. Chris Christie doesn’t watch Tucker Carlson MY ASS.

The Simpson‘s showrunner knows how he would end the series, and honestly? It doesn’t suck.

The Children’s & Family Emmy Awards will become its own, stand-alone competition and ceremony beginning next year.

Here’s a good little gift guide for the TV and movie fans in your life.

This is a decent explainer of the use of masks on Squid Game, if you’re interested in a little overthinking on the matter.

I don’t know what to say, other than your girl is planning on getting her booster shot this weekend, now that it looks like the FDA is going to make it available to all adults tomorrow. Deaths continue to decline —  which is irrefutably good news — but the hospitalizations are ticking up as we head into the cold season.

Mr. T gets it:

Gene Simmons gets it:

Matthew McConaughey is still not quite getting it.

Letitia Wright continues to be a pain in the ass for the Black Panther 2 production. Wright has been recovering from injuries on-set earlier this month, and she’s been recovering back home in the U.K. Production has thus been postponed until next year. Except: new vaccine requirements at workplaces that employ more than 100 people are going to be in place next year, and the CDC has implemented a new rule that allows only vaccinated non-citizens to fly into the United States. Guess who isn’t vaccinated? I have very little patience with this story. Either she gets vaccinated or they replace her.

Rockmond Dunbar is leaving Fox’s 9-1-1 after refusing to get vaccinated. Bye.

Former The View co-host Jedediah Bila appeared on the show yesterday remotely to promote her new book. Joy Behar addressed the fact that she wasn’t in the studio and Bila admitted she wasn’t vaccinated. Bila explained that she both had a “medical exemption” that would make it dangerous to receive the vaccine, before claiming that “I have sky-high, multi-tiered, multi-faceted natural immunity” to Covid. As she began spewing a bunch of misinformation about the vaccine’s efficacy, the other hosts shut her down and Whoopi cut her off altogether. It was a mess.

Annie Live! on NBC replaced Jane Krakowski with Megan Hilty after Krakowski had a breakthrough case.

Derek Hough contracted a breakthrough case and is quarantining. It’s unclear how this might impact the Dancing with the Stars finale next week.

Miles Teller SWEARS he’s vaccinated, you guys.

Broadway’s Chicken & Biscuits will shut down permanently after they had to shut down due to an unreported number of cast and crew members tested positive.

Times Square will welcome vaccinated spectators back for the New Year’s Eve Ball Drop. (The question is why anyone, vaccinated or not, would want to stand out in the cold for 10 hours with no alcohol or access to bathrooms.)

The ATX Television Festival will be in person next year. (I mean, we hope.)



  • Queen Sugar has been renewed for a seventh and final season on OWN.
  • The Sinner will end with this fourth season on USA. Bummer. Though it would be hard to come up with more ways to throw murders in front of Bill Pullman.
  • Zero Chill has been canceled at Netflix after one season.
