Ted Cruz is out there finding brand new ways to humiliate himself.

I feel you, vulture.

All Other TV News

Hey, remember how Ted Cruz campaigned for Former President Vulgarian after he said Cruz’s dad killed JFK and that Cruz’s wife was ugly and crazy? And remember how when he got caught fleeing our frozen state for a Ritz-Carlton vacation in Cancun, he blamed it on his daughters? Well, we’ve got a new entry for Ted Cruz’s Big Book of Pathetic and Cowardly Actions.

On Wednesday at a Senate Rules Committee meeting, Cruz mustered the courage to say something truthful (albeit hypocritical considering his involvement in the events on January 6): “We are approaching a solemn anniversary this week … And it is an anniversary of a violent terrorist attack on the Capitol where we saw the men and women of law enforcement demonstrate incredible courage, incredible bravery, risk their lives to defend the men and women who serve in this Capitol.”

Where’s the lie?

But then Tucker Carlson, this turd, ranted on his show on Wednesday about Cruz calling the rioters “terrorists.” Cruz appeared on Carlson’s show last night, on the anniversary of January 6, to grovel and apologize:

I mean, just, wow. Just when you think he couldn’t be more embarrassing to our state, he manages to find whole new lows. What a sniveling asshole.

I had forgotten that a new Battlestar Galactica series from Sam Esmail had been announced over on Peacock. However, a pilot is still not in the works. In the meantime, a Battlestar Galactica movie is in active development. Producer Simon Kinberg has said that the series and the movie will have some “synergy” between them. As for how the film will tie to the most recent Battlestar Galactica series that aired on Syfy: “There are connections, but it is certainly not simply a continuation or a remake of Ron Moore’s masterpiece.”

TV Insider does some TV math to estimate when we will learn who the new Doctor Who will be, and they have come up with some time this summer. Meanwhile, the first episode with the new Doctor won’t air until November 2023, marking the 60th anniversary of the series.

Here’s a list of TV news media stories to watch for in 2022. It’s also a list of things that are already giving me incredible anxiety.

No one watched the Oscars last year — it didn’t even break the top 100 most-viewed TV of the year. GEE, I WONDER WHY? Maybe the entire collapse of the movie industry thanks to COVID, and a weird off-putting program had something to do with it?

The Golden Globes are technically happening this weekend, but no one will attend, it will not be broadcast, and it won’t even be live-streamed. If an awards show happens but no one watches, did it really take place? (Here’s a good guide to the controversy surrounding the Golden Globes and the HFPA if you need a little refresher.)

This is a solid list of horror series that will be coming out this year — and I will be watching pretty much all of them. (I do wonder if Fall of the House of Usher will be coming out this year — it’s not on the list, but it’s the series I’m most excited about.)


I had gone down to weekly updates last year, but thanks to how quickly Omicron is ripping across this country, I thought I would do a quick roundup of current news:
