I want you to guess how many TV shows there are out there right now. Go ahead, guess.

Guess how many titles there are available to watch across TV and streaming. Now scroll over to see if you guessed correctly: 817,000 unique program titles. THAT IS TOO MANY. THAT IS TOO MUCH TV. IS EVERYONE WORKING IN TV? HOW CAN THERE BE THIS MUCH TV?

It’s no wonder viewers are overwhelmed and wish they could just bundle the streaming services.  This was always inevitable — in fact, right now, with this glut of streaming services, but then some things like news only on cable, and other things like sports only on network, it is probably the worst, most-expensive time to be a TV fan. Eventually, the different players will begin gobbling each other up (see below about WarnerMedia and Discovery) but for now, unless you’re willing to shell out for at least 7 or 8 streaming services and premium cable, you’re going to be missing out on something.

I know corporate news is probably not what you come here for, but I do think it’s worth mentioning that the WarnerMedia and Discovery merger is moving full-steam ahead. A bunch of WarnerMedia executives has stepped down — like, a BUNCH — and the deal could be complete by next week, maybe by Friday.

Sean Penn went on The Last Word with Lawrence O’Donnell on MSNBC and Hannity on Fox News last night to discuss Ukraine and his first-hand look at what is happening there. He and Sean Hannity opened by talking about not trusting each other and their political differences, before moving on to the crisis. I have my own feelings about Sean Hannity — NOT GOOD ONES — but I do have to respect the decision to have someone like Penn on his show to talk about the war in Ukraine.

Jonathan Groff says a third season of Mindhunter is as likely to happen as a third Frozen installment, and I don’t know if I should be optimistic or disappointed.

Mindy Kaling always planned to end Never Have I Ever after four seasons because high school is only four years long. This makes sense. Also, he addressed the Rudy Giuliani situation by saying, 1. it would have never happened in South Korea, but also 2. ~shrug~ whatcha gonna do?

The Korean creator of The Masked Singer says that the Rudy Giuliani thing would never have happened on the South Korean version of the show, but also, ~shrug~, whaddya gonna do?

Barney turns 30 today. I’m not surprised that Selena Gomez and Demi Lovato were kids on the show, but I AM shocked that Alison Tolman played a mom. How old did they think she was?

A crew member has been injured on the set of Tales of the Walking Dead. They must have some serious insurance over there.

Here’s your first look at the Interview with the Vampire series on AMC.

Erica Jayne Girardi’s legal troubles are far from over.
