Abbott Elementary stuck the landing:

Kim Kardashian had never seen Saturday Night Live before hosting it, which just feels very on-brand.

Maisie Williams opened up about resenting Arya Stark when she herself was becoming a woman, and how the world’s expectations for her to be like her character stifled her own self-expression. As for playing Arya Stark again in a potential spinoff? Probably not. But never say never.

So, some TikToker claimed that she slept with Clayton Echard in New York City, and Echard had to be like, “Yeah, no, I was in Arizona at the time, so it wasn’t me.” And it was a whole thing and apparently Reality Steve got himself in the middle of it all and anyway, everything is fine between Clayton and Susie, stand down.

Moonlighting isn’t available on streaming thanks to music license issues. Disney owns it, but they’ve dragged their feet about streaming it because it would be a pain to replace the music with something less expensive.

The Jeopardy! fans have spoken.

IMDb TV is changing its name to Freevee on April 27.

Russians are suing Netflix for shutting off service in the wake of the invasion of Ukraine. Good luck with all that.

Cases are rising again. Fortunately, hospitalizations and deaths continue to decline. That said, the decline in those numbers have slowed. Not to be a Chicken Little, but it’s not a great trend.

The CDC is keeping the mask requirement on planes in place for at least another two weeks, despite pressure from airlines and Republicans, and frankly, I’m grateful. In Europe, some nations have dropped their airline mask requirements and the outcome was depressingly predictable:

Broadway continues to be rocked by COVID outbreaks.

Anderson Cooper tested positive for COVID.

New York Mayor Eric Adams tested positive.

Nancy Pelosi, Merrick Garland, Susan Collins, Raphael Warnock have all tested positive, along about 60 other people who attended the Gridiron Dinner in Washington DC.

Tucker Carlson is out here saying he didn’t get vaccinated. Fox News required their employees get vaccinated, so either he’s lying or he’s breaking their policy.

The CMT Music Awards had to make backup plans after their planned host Kelsea Ballerini tested positive. She hosted from home, and Kane Brown filled in in person.

But in positive news: The Daily Show returned to the studio with an audience for the first time in two years.

And a study suggests what you probably already know: streaming saved Hollywood (and all of us) during the worst of the pandemic shutdowns.
