All Other TV News
The Scrubs cast and creator would like to have a revival now, please, and thank you.
Magnum P.I. might be saved by NBC and USA. Stay tuned.
“We even know what our final shot of the last episode is going to be,” Payne teases to Empire in our world-exclusive cover story. “The rights that Amazon bought were for a 50-hour show. They knew from the beginning that was the size of the canvas – this was a big story with a clear beginning, middle, and end. There are things in the first season that don’t pay off until Season 5.”
Meanwhile, George R.R. Martin is still raving about House of the Dragon. Interestingly, he notes that the writers made some changes to his story, but that they improved it, so we’ll see.
Some of y’all are too young to appreciate this news, but for those of us who grew up watching Beavis and Butt-Head when it originally aired, the news that they are restoring the original music videos with their commentary for streaming is ABSOLUTELY HUGE NEWS.
As for Will’s sexuality in Stranger Things, The Duffer Brothers say you should be asking that question, and it will be addressed in the final episodes next month.
The Last Week Tonight folks are playing with fire:

Context available at the 6:45 minute here:
Jimmy Kimmel is making noises about wanting to retire. I would say it’s all contract bluster, but I thought the same thing about James Corden, and look at what happened there.
CBS is considering a panel of late-night hosts to replace James Corden, instead of just one middle-aged white guy. So The View? But late night? And probably a lot fewer women?
Speaking of The View, how’s the search for Meghan McCain’s replacement going?
Reservation Dogs and Dopesick are two of the big winners of the prestigious Peabody Awards. More winners will be announced later this week, because they’re being all dramatic.
Considerably less prestigious, here are the MTV Movie & TV Awards winners.
Tiger King’s Bhagavan “Doc” Antle has been arrested by the FBI, but they’re not saying why.
Congratulations to Kam Williams and Leroy Garrett of The Challenge.
