The ‘Harry & Meghan’ documentary trailer has come out and Piers Morgan is wetting his pants about it.

Dogs being bros:

Here’s A BUNCH OF TV News

The Masked Singer announced their season 8 winner, and hey, guess what? It was a professional singer. As were the runner-ups.

Over at Good Morning America, there’s quite the cheating scandal brewing. GMA co-anchors Amy Robach and T.J. Holmes were spotted vacationing together in upstate New York — even though they are both married to other people. After the Daily Mail published photos of them together, the anchors’ Instagram accounts went dark. But then! Over on People Magazine, an “inside source” claimed that they both were separated from their respective spouses, and, in fact, split from their spouses within weeks of each other in August. BUT LEST YOU THINK THAT SMELLS BAD, they didn’t start their relationship until after that. LOL, OK. But also, whatever. Shit happens. The human heart be complicated.

Netflix has made a bunch of news in the past 24 hours, including that they’ve told creators to not write shows with the ad tier in mind and that they are expanding the Preview Club, basically a test audience program, from 2,000 viewers to 10,000 globally.

After Knives Out: Glass Onion had a strong opening in theaters last weekend, Netflix pulled it, leaving some to wonder what the hell kind of business decision that was. Why would he just leave money on the table that way? Hastings, in response, says “It’s a promotional tactic for the streaming service. We are not trying to build a theatrical business.”

Yes, obviously Cocaine Bear is neither a TV series nor a movie, but I’m including it here anyway, because it’s my blog, I do what I want.

Other things that Reed Hastings said at the same event: He would order Dave Chappelle’s transphobic special The Closer “again and again.”  SO TOO BAD, LGBTQ EMPLOYEES!

He also said this: (Are you the Cocaine Bear, Reed?)

Sarah Silverman, friend of Dave Chappelle, has finally addressed his SNL monologue, and she’s not cool with it:

“It was hilarious, and brilliant, and winning, and charming, and wildly antisemitic.”

“Most people who watched it, hating Jews was not their takeaway,” Silverman continued, “but I will tell you, Jews for the most part, were hypersensitive to it just like any minority will be keenly aware of the hatred and little aggressions against them. And there were a lot of Jewish jokes in there that were f**king hilarious, but that’s what made the antisemitism in it so scary. It bolstered it.”

Warner Bros. Discovery is very interested in a Harry Potter TV series. In other news, bears love cocaine water is wet.

Andor almost included the first instance of the word “fuck” in a Star Wars project, except obviously not.https://twitter.com/zer0bandwidth/status/1598107773010575362?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1598107773010575362%7Ctwgr%5E85303ecfcb7781231fd943b1acf98d6b542f2395%7Ctwcon%5Es1_c10&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fuproxx.com%2Ftv%2Fwheel-of-fortune-erection-puzzle%2F

“Fox Nation is Thriving Where CNN+ Imploded” is the headline, to which I might suggest having the brand new owner of your parent company pull the plug on your streaming service 32 days after you debuted does not suggest that you “imploded” but that your new parent company never wanted to give you a chance and spend money on you in the first place. Look, I’m not defending CNN+ here — it didn’t last long enough for anyone to be able to develop any real sort of opinion about it or its potential for success. But it is disingenuous to compare Fox Nation and CNN+ in this way, without discussing the fact that Discovery took over Warner Brothers a month after CNN+ debuted.

A company called News Guard is providing reports on the accuracy of various news programs (“news” programs) to advertising agencies, to allow their clients to judge how informative different programs actually are. While talking heads shows like Sean Hannity and The Rachel Maddow Show generate big ratings, some advertisers are moving away from shows that might provide singular viewpoints or irresponsible coverage. Anyway, this is a long way to go to say that Tucker Carlson’s show rated the lowest, 0 out of 10, on this scale.

This is what you’re missing by not watching The Drew Barrymore Show:

Piers Morgan is crying about the Harry & Meghan documentary trailer coming out (see below) and it will never stop being hilarious how much this man hates these two.

Hey, DirecTV customers, you can now subscribe to Discovery+ and gorge on all the dumb ghost shows and home design shows you can possibly consume. 

Al Roker has been hospitalized for his blood clots again, and had to miss the Rockefeller Center tree lighting. Please get better soon, Al!

Do not allow Fox News and Republicans to distance themselves from that racist homophobic incel dweeb Nick Fuentes. They are the same:

So this is happening as I am writing this:

I dunno, when Alex Jones is alarmed by your praise of Hitler, maybe it’s time to go back to the doctor and reassess your mental health?
