The big news from Friday was the acquittal of Kyle Rittenhouse for shooting and killing two people, and injuring a third at a protest in Kenosha, WI. All I really have to say about it is that I’m not surprised, but I am saddened by what message this decision sends, and I worry about what others will learn from this.

In other not at all surprising news, Tucker Carlson was filming the entire trial for a documentary series, and his interview with Rittenhouse will air on his show tonight. Apparently, Rittenhouse “supports BLM” and “peaceful demonstrating.” OK.

I leave you with Amber Ruffin’s poignant response:

In other Fox News news, two longtime conservative contributors, Stephen Hayes and Jonah Goldberg have resigned from the network following the decision to broadcast Tucker Carlson’s repugnant January 6 alternative history series, Patriot Purge on Fox Nation.

“Over the past five years, some of Fox’s top opinion hosts amplified the false claims and bizarre narratives of Donald Trump or offered up their own in his service. In this sense, the release of Patriot Purge wasn’t an isolated incident, it was merely the most egregious example of a longstanding trend. Patriot Purge creates an alternative history of January 6, contradicted not just by common sense, not just by the testimony and on-the-record statements of many participants, but by the reporting of the news division of Fox News itself.”

Good for them.

Over at CNN, Jim Acosta has also had enough of Carlson’s trash:

The Simpsons finally gave Smithers a serious boyfriend in last night’s episode. It only took 33 years, but I’m glad they finally got there.

Joe Giudice would like to return to the United States after being deported. No thank you, please.

The Royal Family is SO MAD about a BBC documentary about Prince William and Harry’s relationship and is threatening to boycott future productions. I mean, alright, but y’all need them as much as they need you so good luck with all that.

An astute viewer has noticed that Cowboy Bebop + laugh track = Seinfeld.

Bridgerton has wrapped filming on season two. Here’s everything we know about the upcoming season in one handy place.

Next year is set to be a good one for people who enjoy TV adaptations of popular books. Lifehacker has a list of 22 book-to-TV adaptations to look forward to in 2022. The Power and Sandman are high on my list, along with House of the Dragon.

Reservoir Dogs: A thing I learned last week: the only move that Quentin Tarantino finds genuinely scary is John Carpenter’s The Thing. The paranoia and the fear that the people you are with may not be who you think they are? That’s what inspired Tarantino’s now-classic debut film. Makes sense. 7:20 p.m., HBO Zone
