Trevor Noah is leaving ‘The Daily Show’ even earlier than expected

Here’s A BUNCH OF TV News

Trevor Noah is leaving The Daily Show even sooner than I thought: his last day will be December 8. I had fully anticipated him staying through the rest of the season, but I guess he’s really ready to go. The show will return on January 17th, as part of a “reinvention.”

Alex Jones has been ordered to pay nearly $1 billion for the lies he pushed and abuse that he inflicted upon the Sandy Hook families. “Jones was found liable of violating Connecticut’s Unfair Trade Practices Act by using lies about the Sandy Hook massacre to sell products on his website. Under that law, there is no limit on punitive damages.” GOOD. This has nothing to do with the First Amendment and everything to do with Alex Jones being a disgusting human who profited off of one of the worst horrors in recent American history. Let’s hope that Fox News is next for selling lies about Dominion Voting Systems.

Mike Flanagan is warning us that his upcoming series Fall of the House of Usher is going to be unlike any of his other horror projects:

“It’s crazy. It is unlike anything I’ve ever done, but in the other direction,” Flanagan said. “My favorite way to describe it to people is like Hill House is kind of a string quartet, and Bly Manor is this delicate, kind of beautiful piece of classical piano music, and The Fall of the House of Usher is heavy metal. It’s rock and roll.” If that wasn’t enough to make horror fans scream, Flanagan added, “It’s the closest I will get to Giallo. It’s wild. It is colorful and dark and blood-soaked and wicked and funny, and aggressive and scary and hilarious.”

“Giallo,” for those of you who are not knee-deep into the horror lexicon, is an Italian-style of horror film which is usually bloody, graphic, and erotic — American slasher films have a similar feel. Anyway, I’m for it. Will watch anything this guy makes. Can’t wait.

Hey, remember how I told you that Warner Bros. Discovery had shut down their Writers and Directors Workshops that had previously been a boon for diverse creators? Yeah, it seems they got the memo that this was a bad P.R. move, and have reversed the decision. The Workshops will now be a part of their Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion unit.

Eric Andre is suing Clayton County in Georgia over the time he was racially profiled at the airport there.
