And Just Like That . . . Peloton’s stock has fallen thanks to that shocking death

Cats, man.

All Other TV News

And Just Like That …,  the Sex & the City sequel series, premiered yesterday and promptly killed off a character after a fateful ride on a Peloton. (Don’t click through these links if you don’t want to be spoiled, by the way.) Peloton’s stock price dropped 12% this morning and people are blaming the series. To be fair, Credit Suisse had also downgraded the stock as more people return to the gym. That said, Peloton did not think it was funny, and released a statement blaming the character’s “extravagant lifestyle” for their death, not the Peloton. (HBO apparently did not reveal to Peloton that they would be using their bike to kill someone off, LOL.)

Succession‘s finale is on Sunday, and we’ll finally get some resolution about what happened to Kendall — if it was his death scene or just foreshadowing of his death (because Kendall’s gonna die, y’all, one way or another). In fact, did he spoil his own death in this interview he gave to Indie Wire earlier this year?

Meanwhile, people are still talking about that New Yorker profile of Jeremy Strong that made him come off as … INTENSE. Jessica Chastain tweeted in his defense:

And Strong’s Succession sister, actress Sarah Snook was asked about Jeremy. Show me how to say, “I disliked working with this man,” without saying those words:

“Jeremy is great. He is a very singular, unique person and actor and he works in a different way than other people. We all work in different ways. We all have a different process.”


Brian Williams signed off last night after 28 years with NBC News, telling viewers: “My biggest worry is for my country.” You and me both, Brian.

The truth is I am not a liberal or a conservative. I’m an institutionalist,” he said. “I believe in this place and in my love of country I yield to no one. But the darkness on the edge of town has spread to the main roads and highways and neighborhoods. It is now at the local bar and the bowling alley, at the school board and the grocery store. And it must be acknowledged and answered for.

Grown men and women, who swore an oath to our Constitution, elected by their constituents, possessing the kind of college degrees I could only dream of, have decided to join the mob and become something they are not, while hoping we somehow forget who they were. They’ve decided to burn it all down with us inside.

I’m hyper aware that it has been a remains a wonderful life. It’s as if I am going to wake up tomorrow morning in Bedford Falls. The reality is, though, I will wake up in the America of the year 2021, a nation unrecognizable to those who came before us and fought to protect it, which is what you must do now.

Squid Game was the most-tweeted-about show of 2021. I bet you can guess #2, but #3 was a legit surprise to me.

Universal is going to start streaming its new theatrical releases on Peacock after only 45 days.

I just want to go one goddamned day without having to think about Pete Davidson at all.

Jussie Smollett was found guilty of lying about a hate crime that never took place. What a shitshow.
