Have you seen the new ‘Bridgerton’ trailer yet?

Because we could all use some puppies in pajamas right now. And they’re even TV-related: their names are “Eleanor” and “Chidi!”

All Other TV News

Can you guess what FX’s most-watched show is? I give you three guesses.

The slow death of cable TV continues afoot. Nearly 5 million more people cut the cord last year, amounting to 5.8% of the industry.

Jeff Zucker is leaving CNN quietly, having reached a deal with WarnerMedia.

Filmmakers including James Cameron, Guillermo del Toro, John Williams, and Kathleen Kennedy are calling for the Oscars to air the categories they are planning to cut (but it is very unlikely).

The head of Paramount seems to be walking back the promise of a new movie every week on Paramount+, moving to a movie every other week. Interestingly, he also seemed to be suggesting that Paramount might be available for some bigger streaming company, like Apple or Amazon, to purchase down the road

Fox News can’t wiggle out of being sued by Smartmatic voting systems for lying about their machines and the election, lol.

And HBO is being sued in a class action for sharing subscribers’ viewing history with Facebook, in violation of federal privacy law.

A producer and creator of Stranger Things explains why the show is going to end after five seasons and the answer is because ALL SHOWS SHOULD PROBABLY END AFTER FIVE SEASONS. After that, most scripted series just start “running on fumes” (that’s me saying it, not this producer). One of the biggest contributions Lost made to television as a whole was allowing show producers to say to networks, “We want to end this show at X number of seasons, because that’s how much story we have.” Before that, shows would mostly just continue airing until audiences lost interest, the ratings plummeted, and they were canceled by the networks. But now, producers have more control and can treat series as a contained story. And that’s a good thing! But it’s also an obvious thing! So why are we still asking producers about it? SORRY FOR THE RANT.

Tony Hawk went and broke himself the day before the trailer for his new now-ironically-titled documentary, Tony Hawk: Until the Wheels Fall Off was released (see below). Heal quickly, Tony!

And we’re going to end this section on this positive Keanu note:

Going Viral

Two Weeks Ago:

This Week:

New York Times

The great news is that the COVID case numbers keep rapidly declining, and we are below 2,000 deaths a day. The CDC said we can do away with our masks, and many places are loosening their mandates and rules. The good news is there was so little entertainment-related COVID-19 news last week, that I was able to skip posting about it last week.

But. You know me: I can’t let down my guard, so I will just point you in the direction of this piece about how the Omicron sub-variant BA.2 appears to be on the rise in New York following the relaxing of COVID measures there. All I’m saying is we’re not back to normal, and don’t throw those masks away just yet.

The Talk co-host Amanda Kloots tested positive last month, one year after COVID took her husband, Broadway star Nick Cordero.

Broadway legend Patti LuPone tested positive and had to step away from starring in Company.

Related: New York might be loosening their mask requirements, but Broadway isn’t.

Ron DeSantis is an asshole.

This is a little unexpected, but I heart Dee Snider?

Drag him, Chris Meloni.
