Euphoria is HBO’s second-most-watched show behind Game of Thrones now. Didn’t see that coming when The Sopranos and Curb Your Enthusiasm are out there, but sure. Euphoria is also the most-tweeted show of the decade which is considerably less surprising. And here’s an interesting article about how the show’s fans love Euphoria, but not its creator.
Bob Odenkirk hates SNL‘s famous Chippendale sketch, and his point is a valid one.
Since The Dropout is premiering tonight on Hulu, here’s your answer for why Elizabeth Holmes talks like that.
Oh, hey, the SAG Awards were this weekend. Here are your winners. (Squid Game cleaned. up.)
The Ukraine Stuff
President Biden’s first State of the Union address was last night, and unsurprisingly, he led with how America is supporting Ukraine against this unprovoked invasion by Russia. (I’m not even going to talk about those hyenas interrupting him because they WANT the attention.)
As I mentioned yesterday, President Zelensky was previously a comedian who starred in a series, Servant of the People, about a man who unexpectedly becomes President of Ukraine. Anyway, this clip from the show is amazing, especially in light of yesterday’s news that the European Union has agreed to give Ukraine candidate status:

Servant of the People has been licensed to Channel 4 in the UK, and to other networks in the Middle East, Greece, and Romania. Let’s find a home for it in the U.S.!
Here’s an article about the global entertainment business boycotting Russia and doing what they can to support Ukrainian filmmakers.
World Taekwondo will not display Russian or Belarusian flags or anthems, and Putin has been stripped of his title as the honorary president and ambassador of the International Judo Federation. That’s gotta hurt.
Russian Tennis Federation and Belarus Tennis Federation have been banned from competition — though they are allowing individual Russians and Belarusians to compete with no country affiliation, which is a cop out.
Similarly, The Venice Film Festival is trying to have it both ways, by saying Russian filmmakers can participate as long as they disagree with Putin. How they prove that is unclear to me.
CNN is delaying the premiere of their documentary series Stanley Tucci: Searching for Italy; Nomad with Carlton McCoy; and Roadrunner: A Film About Anthony Bourdain out of deference to the breaking war news.

Here’s John Bolton — who was in Former President Putin’s Bootlicker’s administration — telling a Newsmax idiot that his former boss was NOT tough on Russia, and that Putin would have likely invaded Ukraine in that traitor’s second term, despite what his supporters would like to believe.
John Bolton pushes back on Newsmax host: "[Trump] barely knew where Ukraine was…It's just not accurate to say that Trump's behavior somehow deterred the Russians" pic.twitter.com/ICRmmeJ8C3— Jason Campbell (@JasonSCampbell) March 1, 2022
"Why didn't Putin complicate the life of a president who was already his lap dog," asks the guy who's now making a career out of pretending not to understand things https://t.co/okKD55nCSC— Tom Nichols (@RadioFreeTom) February 21, 2022
2. She has no comment on these crimes against humanity?— Leah Remini (@LeahRemini) February 26, 2022
But she’s going to pray?
Scientology, her “religion”, says Christ is a pedophile and a lie.
Scientologists aren’t allowed to believe in anything else other than Scientology.
So who is she praying to?
