All Other TV News
The Grammys were last night (here are all the winners, including a TikTok spawned musical inspired by Bridgerton? whaaaat?), and no one got slapped! Except, you know, all the women who are still outraged by Louis C.K.’s behavior and lack of accountability.
Louis CK just won a Grammy, so I don’t want to hear any more whining about cancel culture.
Men can sexually prey on women, the victims can have their careers and confidence destroyed, it can all go public – and there will still be no real consequences.

Louis CK just won a GRAMMY. "cancel culture" seems pretty selective hm? And thanks so much to our industry for once again telling us that survivors don't matter. #HireSurvivorsHollywood #MeToo @hiresurvivors https://t.co/AKGpSjhlSQ

I'm seeing reports that Will Smith's projects are being stalled or cancelled as the result of what happened at the Oscars. It seems he is facing immediate and significant repurcussions for his actions. Why then, may I ask, are countless sexual abusers still working in Hollywood?

Speaking of Will Smith, he resigned from The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences over The Slap.
“Will used lip calling F word in front of our kids and family.”
“An actor at the Oscars attacked a comedian at the 2022 Oscar Awards Ceremony on live tv; and it was not rated V for violence. The should be fined.”
“Hello: I would like to file a complaint against ABC for airing multiple uses of profanity (the F word -twice) and airing a live violent physical assault of Chris Rock by Will Smith. I do not believe it is legal to assault on live TV and do not think it is legal to use the F word on a family show aired by ABC and Walt Disney Company. I would like to seek damages, monetary or in the form of free subscriptions for like twenty years to Disney Plus.”
Yeah, I don’t think the FCC hands out subscriptions to Disney+.
No one asked you, Bill Maher. Sit down.
Jada Pinket Smith sat quiet and rolled her eyes.
Chris Rock's brother called her a b*tch. Bill Maher told her to "put on a f*cking wig if it bothers you so much"
Ask yourself why and how she became the punching bag in this incident. 1/?

But back to the Grammys for one second: President Zelensky delivered a powerful message during the ceremony. This could have been you, Oscars:
⚡️Ukrainian artists, Zelensky address audience at the Grammys.
President Volodymyr Zelensky addressed the audience in a pre-recorded video, wherein he said:“We are fighting Russia, which brings horrible silence with its bombs. The dead silence. Fill the silence with your music.” pic.twitter.com/DrUzTNqsDO

Big news, Witcher fans:

CODA‘s big Oscar win has brought in a 25% increase in viewers to Apple TV+. But we’ll see how many of them stick around after the initial free 7 days.
Fox News had, somehow, earned a 100 percent rating as one of the best places to work for LGBTQ+ quality by the Human Rights Campaign. But thanks to their coverage of Florida’s “Don’t Say Gay” bill, they’ve dropped 25 points. Good. They shouldn’t have had a 100 percent to begin with.
The GLAAD Media Awards were this weekend. Here are your big winners.
Friday was April Fool’s Day, and the only prank I approve of is the one the Jimmys pulled:
Archie was an ignorant, racist, who was despised by all, a buffoon to laugh at. Meathead was the hero of the show.

Kanye has pulled out of Coachella, which means Travis Scott won’t be appearing, either. (This is all for the best.)
