I swear to the TV gods, you better have voted.


Here’s A BUNCH OF TV News

Fox News could very well determine whether this post-election moment stays calm or descends into chaos and I’m not great with that, thanks!

Beginning today, you’ll be able to live stream NBC live 24/7 on Peacock, if you’re a Premium member and, yes, this. More of the networks need to do this: Paramount+ should live stream CBS; Disney+ could live stream ABC, Hulu: Fox. And The CW should talk to … I dunno … Prime? Netflix? Apple TV+ Whatever. It might not be necessary soon.

Speaking of The CW, their new entertainment head is Brad Schwartz, a former executive at Pop who developed Billy on the Street, Flack, and a little show called Schitt’s Creek. Nexstar folks are hoping that if he can just recreate that magic …

And as the largest owner of local TV stations, Nexstar is also very excited at the idea that the networks might start handing back the 9/10 p.m. hour to them for local (cheap) content. Broadcast TV is about to be very different, and soon.

Ryan Murphy says that he should have ended Glee after Cory Monteith died, which yeah, probably, maybe even sooner than that, and then in the next breath, this man is talking about a Glee reboot? ABSOLUTELY NOT. NO MA’AM.

Hold up HOLD UP: Ryan Reynolds appeared on South Korea’s Masked Singer? How? Why? I mean, I know why: he was promoting Deadpool 2, but what in the D-list celebrity is this shit?

The star of Squid Game finds it depressing and dark that so many people connected with the series. Fair!


Rhianna’s Savage X Fenty runway show will stream on Prime tomorrow, and she has chosen to include Johnny Depp in one of the show’s “star” moments. Gross and also WHY?

Ho’h boy. According to an investigation done by the New York State Attorney General’s office, an LAPD Captain alerted CBS and Les Moonves to a confidential criminal sexual assault complaint against Moonves when it was filed in Hollywood, and shared an unredacted police report with them. This person inside the LAPD continued to provide CBS and Les Moonves with secret updates on the investigation. With permission from CBS, one of the executives who knew about these allegations sold 160,709 shares of CBS stock six weeks before the news became public, at which point the stock plummeted in value. As a result of this investigation, the New York State Attorney General’s office has secured a more than $30 million settlement from CBS, Paramount, and Moonves. Just … wow.

Sienna Miller says she was told to “fuck off” when she asked to be paid the same as her male co-star in a Broadway production.

Toni Collette has a more nuanced take on intimacy coordinators — that she doesn’t need them if she trusts her team — and I understand her point, I guess. She’s a grown adult who can do what she wants. That said, I would argue that messages like hers are only going to confuse some dense actors, and that they are going to hear that actresses don’t “trust” them if they want a coordinator, or that a coordinator isn’t necessary because they themselves are an inherently “trustworthy” actor. This is not what a coordinator is for, but tell that to the Sean Beans of the world.

Alanis Morissette blames “an overarching anti-woman sentiment” in the music industry for her choice to drop out of a performance at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.

Daniel Radcliffe is a mensch. Please vote for people who would protect, not abuse, trans kids.
