Here’s A BUNCH OF TV News
As expected, the Golden Globes are returning to NBC next year — but for one year only. We’ll have to wait and see if the HFPA can continue cleaning up their act before NBC will commit to more. The Golden Globes will air on January 10, 2023.
Civil rights organizations are protesting the upcoming Prime Video show Ring Nation, claiming that Amazon is just selling the Ring-branded “surveillance network” as entertainment.
So … they’re making a theatrical adaptation of Peaky Blinders? And there’s a bunch of dancing in it?
The original American Idol cast had a reunion at Kelly Clarkson’s Hollywood Walk of Fame ceremony. And everyone looks pretty good!
Gen Zers want content that deals with real-life issues, not aspirational bullshit according to a UCLA study.
This is an alarming bit of news: On Election Night 2020, Fox News anchor, Bret Baier, wanted to lie and call Arizona for Former President Document Thief. Now that Fox News has fired the pollster who made the accurate calls that night, what will stop them from lying in the next election?
After Fox called Arizona for Biden, top anchor Bret Baier emailed network president Jay Wallace that "The Trump campaign was really pissed" and "The sooner we pull it … and we put it back in his column the better we are in my opinion," per a new book. https://t.co/xGnG0IqcSL pic.twitter.com/LD6VKm4h31

This isn’t TV news, but Adnan Syed’s conviction has been overturned and he has been released from prison after 23 years. Syed was the subject of the wildly popular podcast Serial, which explored his very controversial conviction for murdering his ex-girlfriend Hae Min Lee. Pajiba has a good piece on the other two suspects being looked at.
Los Espookys is just one of my favorite weird little gems of a show that is not for everyone. But if you do love it, here’s an in-depth examination of how the art direction and design make it so special.
37.5 million people in the U.K. watched the Queen’s funeral — it’s estimated that 4.1 billion people watched worldwide.
I’m sure this is just a weird production error — you’ll note that the sound cuts off abruptly, probably when someone in the booth realized it was being broadcast — but it’s super spooky, nonetheless:
What was just whispered on ITV just then? "The death is irreversible the fact that she's travelling…" pic.twitter.com/1pFiqPTqe0

There’s some DRAMA happening at a local L.A. station after a longtime anchor’s departure was announced on-air. Another anchor, a few days later, called the announcement “rude” “cruel” and “inappropriate” for the way it was delivered and now he’s been suspended. Y’all, what is going on?
This feels like a Boston attack on Philadelphia:
Who is this “other actor”? He seems great. 😂 pic.twitter.com/1GxP3fbO4N

House of the Dragons intimacy coordinator, Miriam Lucia, gave a very good interview about her job, and how the show is navigating sex scenes differently than Game of Thrones. She also gracefully responds to Sean Bean’s dunderheaded comments about intimacy coordinators spoiling the spontaneity of a scene: “But I get why he said that, because he doesn’t have the same experience of it, and because this is a new function on sets.”
Dallas Sting, a Matthew McConaughey film about a 1984 girls’ soccer team, has been scrapped after “disturbing allegations surrounding aspects of the true story on which the drama was based” were made known to the producers. After the producers investigated, they chose to shut down the production. An anonymous letter was sent to the producers that claimed the coach that McConaughey was supposed to portray, Bill Kinder, had “touched someone outside their clothes and referred to the female athletes he coached by inappropriate nicknames.” Kinder denies all of the allegations.
In 1992, Rosie O’Donnell not only turned Woody Allen down for a movie role, she told him “Fuck. No.” when he continued to pursue her. She also rebuffed Michael Jackson when he wanted to speak to her at an event, telling his people that she believed every allegation against him. Good for her.
The Ezra Miller story continues to get darker — in addition to all the other abusive bullshit, they also have a messiah complex, apparently. Good luck with this, Warner Bros.
Aaron Carter is threatening to sue his ex-girlfriend for defamation. This is what that Johnny Depp verdict hath wrought.
This is an amazing story about a group of seventh-grade boys who noticed that their teacher was behaving inappropriately with the girls in their class and making them uncomfortable. When they complained to other adults, they were not taken seriously, so the boys started a Discord channel where they began recording every instance the teacher said or did something inappropriate. The teacher has since been placed on leave, and the database has been handed over to the US attorney’s Office, the state Department of Children, Youth, and Families, the state Department of Education, and the attorney for their local school district. The kids are alright.
Lebron James, Chris Paul, and other NBA players have called out the league after they issued very mild sanctions against Phoenix Suns owner Robert Sarver over reportedly sexist, racist, and abusive behavior.
Sam Mendes thinks a woman should direct the next James Bond movie, and I agree. There’s no need to make Bond a woman, but having a woman’s take on the spy would be fascinating.
