Joy Behar wiped out trying to get into her chair on The View, but she’s fine.
Joy Behar fell during the opening of #TheView this morning. She recovered quickly and then she cracked a joke: "25 years, that has never happened to me. Who do I sue.." pic.twitter.com/fQcz7HEjha

I’m not laughing, only because I know that if I had to clamber into one of those chairs, I’d fall on my ass, too.
Has The Boys been renewed for season four, and has production already begun? That’s the rumor that’s floating out there …
Considering we had to wait two years for this upcoming third season to come out, they BETTER be making season four right now.
And in other good Amazon news: Good Omens season two has wrapped filming.
The voice of Futurama‘s Bender, John DiMaggio, has closed a deal to reprise his role after being the sole holdout. Get paid, son!
A huge fire has broken out at a location for Downton Abbey and Peaky Blinders:
Make pumps 20 building fire, currently ongoing at Dalton Mills in Keighley. @WYFRSControl have @WYFRS crews from across the county there along with crews from @NorthYorksFire Skipton. @YorkshireHart also assisting. pic.twitter.com/oVkkz5Eua2

American Horror Story; Pose; and American Crime Story are all headed to Hulu from Netflix soon, and I’ll finally be able to catch up with Impeachment.
If, like me, you are intrigued by Moon Knight because Oscar Isaac, but you know nothing at all about the comic series, this explainer is for you.
50 Cent is mad that Power Book IV: Force hasn’t been renewed at Starz yet, and is threatening to pack up his toys and go home.
Speaking of Starz … for a limited time, you can get three months of Starz and Amazon Music for only $3 bucks.
Over on Paramount+, you can get three months for only $1.
And when CNN+ launches, if you subscribe within the first four weeks, you can lock in a $2.99 monthly subscription fee. Otherwise, it will be $5.99 a month.
The crew of Nailed It! have gone on strike.
For years now, I’ve heard that the worst host of Saturday Night Live, hands down, was Steven Seagal, but I hadn’t actually seen any of the episode. In this interview with Howard Stern, Bob Odenkirk — who was a writer on the show at the time — describes what a doofus he was, and there is a clip at the end of the sketch that Seagal came up with … and, y’all, it’s glorious. It truly is worth the three minutes to watch:
Sam Elliott is real mad at Power of the Dog because a lady made it and because it’s about The Gays. OK, Boomer.
Jenna Fischer understood The Office better than the writers and showrunners.
WarnerMedia is going to start airing US Soccer matches on TNT, TBS, and HBO Max.
The invasion into Ukraine by Russian forces continues, unfortunately, and is becoming much more violent against civilian centers. Over one million people have fled the country in the past week, which is mind-boggling.
Netflix has paused all future projects and acquisitions from Russia, and their CEO, Reed Hastings, has donated $1 million to an emergency relief organization.
Spotify has closed its Russian office and is “working to remove Kremlin-backed media from its platform.”
Dennis Miller has abandoned his program on RT.
ITV is demanding that Russian networks stop airing their series I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out of Here! and The Voice Kids.
Russia’s last independent TV station which has been critical of the government and the invasion has been pulled off the air. But they’re signaling that something is afoot:
On Swan Lake in Russia, @DAlperovitch: The Tchaikovsky ballet was played on a loop in 1991 during the coup…That's how the public knew that there was huge turmoil happening…The last independent TV station was shut down by authorities & they're now playing Swan Lake” #AMRstaff

Oleg Sentsov, Ukrainian filmmaker and activist, calls for the boycott of the Russian film industry from the front lines in this video.
A collection of Russian filmmakers put out a statement calling for the “end the barbaric war in Ukraine, and we call for reconciliation and an immediate cease-fire.”
The entertainment industry, particularly international distributors, are not sure how to respond to the uncertainty: “One international distribution veteran with links to the region told us: ‘Between the obliteration of Ukraine, the sanctions which have paralyzed transactions in and out of Russia, and the crashing ruble, Russia as we know it has come to a grinding halt. There are going to be massive cancellations and refunds and no one knows where this ends.’”
Russian and Belarusian athletes have been kicked out of the Beijing Paralympics currently taking place. This is in the wake of the news that China asked Russia to hold off on the invasion until after the Olympics, which, UNCOOL, CHINA.
Roman Abramovich, the Russian oligarch who owns Chelsea Football Club, confirms he is selling it and the proceeds are to go to a foundation for Ukrainian war victims. We’ll see.
The chess world is also shutting down competitions and cutting ties with Belarusian and Russian sanctioned or state-controlled companies.
Anastasia, the Disney movie about the Russian princess, has been removed from Disney+, but NOT because of the war.
Maksim Chmerkovskiy made it back to Los Angeles safely and has been reunited with his wife Peta Murgatroyd and family.
Meanwhile, Fox News’ Greg Gutfeld’s mother-in-law is still trapped in Ukraine.
Oligarchs’ yachts are being seized. YESSSSS. DO MORE OF THIS.
