Warner Bros. Discovery has somehow managed to find even more shows to kill

No notes.


Here’s A BUNCH OF TV News

The Warner Bros. Discovery bloodbath continues (see below in Cancellation). Additionally, it came out that upon shelving Batgirl, Warner Bros. Discovery immediately prevented the filmmakers from being able to access any of their footage.

Fallah said, “I went on the server… Everything was gone.”

El Arbi added: “We were like, ‘F*cking sh*t!’ All the scenes with Batman in them!”

“The guys from Warners told us it was not a talent problem from our part or the actress, or even the quality of the movie,” said El Arbi. He continued, “They told us it was a strategic change. There was new management, and they wanted to save some money.”

By making these cuts, Warner Bros. Discovery is saving tens of millions of dollars — a drop in the $3 billion bucket that they are trying to ultimately save. And I guess you have to start somewhere, but what will these cuts do to Warner Bros. Discovery’s reputation among creators down the line? Who is going to be willing to work with a company that might kill your work at a moment’s notice? And why should viewers have any confidence that the projects they subscribe to the service for will still be there the next day?


I mean, 10 million tuning into House of the Dragon on Sunday is certainly going to help (it’s the biggest premiere HBO has ever had), but Westeros can’t save the entire company, y’all.

Dan Harmon is out here making more noises about a Community movie. I’ve heard this one before. 

Nene Leakes has dropped her lawsuit against Bravo, Andy Cohen and the producers of The Real Housewives of Atlanta.

Well, this is surprising: a reality series emotionally manipulated and traumatized its cast in the name of “good television.” Huh! Who’da thunk?

Superman & Lois‘ former co-star Jordan Elsass has shed some light on his decision to leave the series, citing mental health issues.

Modern Family‘s Sarah Hyland married Bachelorette/Bachelor in Paradise‘s Wells Adams this weekend. Love may not be dead after all!

Tom Girardi and Erika Jayne are auctioning off some of their stuff next month. 

Take care, Maureen McGovern.


Vince Gilligan is “still thinking” about the hate that Skyler received from Breaking Bad fans:

Back when the show first aired, Skyler was roundly disliked. I think that always troubled Anna Gunn [who played Skyler]. And I can tell you it always troubled me, because Skyler, the character, did nothing to deserve that. And Anna certainly did nothing to deserve that. She played the part beautifully. I realize in hindsight that the show was rigged, in the sense that the storytelling was solely through Walt’s eyes, even in scenes he wasn’t present for. Even Gus, his archenemy, didn’t suffer the animosity Skyler received. It’s a weird thing. I’m still thinking about it all these years later.

Misogyny is a hell of a drug.

DeShaun Watson has now been suspended for 11 games and a $5 million fine for sexually assaulting multiple women — some twenty-four have come forward with accusations. The NFL wanted to suspend him for an entire season, and appealed an earlier ruling of only 6 games. And good for the NFL! But BOO on The Browns for signing him to a deal in the first damn place.

Gary Busey has been charged with two counts of criminal sexual contact in New Jersey after attending a convention in Cherry Hill.

Plácido Domingo has been accused of hiring a sex worker from a sex trafficking ring in Argentina.

Johanna Altman, the wife of Million Dollar Listing: Los Angeles star Matt Altman, was recently arrested and charged with felony domestic violence.

The story about Brad Pitt possibly abusing Angelina Jolie and causing $25,000 worth of damage on a private plane is not great, y’all. Really not great.

The guy who was found legally to be a wife beater in the U.K. is going to make a “surprise” appearance at the MTV VMAs this weekend. Gross.

So, Matthew Fox has a new role in a Peacock series, and while I definitely remembered the story from about 10 years ago when he got drunk and punched a female party bus driver, what I don’t think I knew was that his former Lost co-star Dominic Monaghan tweeting this around the same time:


The ex-girlfriend of actor Daren Kagasoff has filed a restraining order against him after he threatened to leak nude pictures of her online and sent some to her parents. Classy.
