It’s time to talk about everything to do with the Super Bowl (except for the actual game, obviously).

Happy Valentine’s Day, TV lovers!

All Other TV News

Yesterday was very obviously Super Bowl Sunday, and the halftime show featuring Dr. Dre, Snoop Dogg, Mary J. Blige, 50 Cent, Eminem, and Kendrick Lamar was a Gen X dream. It was EXCELLENT.

Or “sexual anarchy” if you’re a conservative white dude who drafted your knee-jerk response to it before it aired.

Also, Eminem took a knee after the NFL told him not to, and now the NFL is all, “Of course we never told him to not take a knee, what are you even talking about.”


In any event, while the performance was undeniably fantastic, Prince would like to remind you that it was NOT the best halftime show of all time, thank you very Goddamned much.

And of course, there were commercials.

The ad that is clogging up my feeds is the Chevy Silverado ad that recreates The Sopranos’ opening credits and stages a weirdly emotional reunion between Meadow and AJ. David Chase directed it.

Like, I don’t know what is happening here? Is it supposed to be funny? Nostalgic? What am I supposed to be feeling right now? Very confused. It did seem to get people’s attention, so I guess mission accomplished?

Also getting a lot of attention, I regret to inform you that Larry David did a crypto ad and not everyone is cool with it.


It’s Valentine’s Day, the perfect time for this article about how couples watch TV shows and what it reveals about relationships.

Whoopi is back, guys.

Hey, Chevy Chase, how do you feel about everyone in the industry who has ever worked with you thinking that you are an unpleasant jerk? “I guess you’d have to ask them. I don’t give a crap! I am who I am. And I like where— who I am. I don’t care. And it’s part of me that I don’t care. And I’ve thought about that a lot. And I don’t know what to tell you, man. I just don’t care.”

This Is Us‘s showrunner threw out an idea for a movie based on what would have happened if Jack hadn’t died, and NBC is FOR IT. (It is unlikely to ever get made, so don’t hold your breath.)

Um … what is going on with Wendy Williams, y’all?

No one is watching the Winter Olympics. (~sad trombone~) Of course, decisions from the IOC like this one in which a Russian ice skater was caught doping, but will be allowed to compete …  but if she medals, there will be no medal ceremony for anyone ISN’T HELPING MATTERS.

Feeling sorry for the man who swindled you out of hundreds of thousands of dollars is … one reaction.

Playwright Jeremy O. Harris, who has been working as a consultant on Euphoria, tried to defend the show and its head writer from criticism of a recent episode and in the process managed to insult TV writers and viewers. It was a mess. People had feelings.

This happened:

Issa Rae received the first-ever key to Inglewood city. Yay!

A woman from Massachusetts won a trip to New Hampshire on The Price is Right recently. Yay. 

Bob Saget’s death is getting weirder and weirder. It wasn’t just a head injury, it was a massive head injury: “This is something I find with someone with a baseball bat to the head, or who has fallen from 20 or 30 feet.” What the hell happened here?

One thought on “It’s time to talk about everything to do with the Super Bowl (except for the actual game, obviously).

  1. The NFL told Eminem not to kneel. He did anyway. They told Dre not to use the lyric “Still no love for police”. He did anyway. They told Snoop not to wear the clothes he wanted to because it could be seen as “gang affiliated”. So he Crip-walked all over the stage.

    It was beautiful. It was perfect.
