The head of Warner Bros. Discovery has officially made it to the top of my Arya list.

I love crows:

Here’s A BUNCH OF TV News

David Zaslav, head of Warner Bros. Discovery, is determined to be the most hated man in Hollywood, I suppose.

Yesterday, HBO Max canceled Minx, Love Life, and The Nevers. The cancelation of Minx was particularly galling, as the delightful series with a cult following not only had already been renewed for a second season, but it was almost finished filming said second season. According to Jake Johnson, the plan is to complete season two, and shop the series to other platforms; let’s hope it finds a new home.

To add insult to injury, Warner Bros. Discovery announced that they weren’t just canceling these series, they would be pulling them off of HBO Max altogether, along with Westworld. This announcement confirms that the second half of the first season of The Nevers will not see the light of day despite having been completed (for a couple years now).

People have some feelings.

There is a great deal of speculation that Zaslav is removing these projects from HBO Max to avoid having to pay creators residuals which will have the effect of discouraging creative types from working with Warner Bros. Discovery, and might exacerbate a writers’ strike.

Station Eleven‘s showrunner (who has to be lighting ALL of the prayer candles right about now promises to play the series on a loop somewhere in the desert if it gets yanked from HBO Max.

I, in the meantime, will be lighting all the prayer candles that David Zaslav gets his ass Bob Chapeked before he can take everything off of HBO Max.

In some slightly hopeful news, after winning two awards at the Children & Family Emmys, The Baby-Sitters Club might be shopped for a third season or possibly a movie after being canceled by Netflix.

A Simpsons writer asked Twitter what joke from the show did they think was an actual fact, and the answers were great.

ABC is keeping T.J. Holmes and Amy Robach off the air while they conduct an internal review on whether or not the company’s morality clauses might have been violated by their affair.

Take care, Captain Rosbach.


Backstreet Boy Nick Carter has been sued for sexual battery in an incident involving a minor that happened in 2001. Carter has been accused of rape in the past but has never faced any charges. In response, ABC pulled A Very Backstreet Holiday which was scheduled to air tomorrow night. The Backstreet Boys did perform at the New York Jingle Ball on Friday.

David Graziano, Law & Order: SVU‘s new showrunner, has been accused of creating a toxic work environment and inappropriate behavior by former co-workers.

Priyanka Chopra Jonas opened up about achieving pay parity with her male costar in Citadel on Prime Video, claiming that in her Bollywood days, she was paid 10% of what the male actors were.

The director of Blonde just keeps making it worse.

Twitter is being sued for discrimination after firing 63% of women in engineering compared to 48% of men. Overall, 57% of women were fired from Twitter, while 47% of men were laid off.

I always forget that MSNBC’s Katy Tur dated Keith Olbermann, possibly because I respect Katy Tur and don’t want to think that she dated that blowhard. Anyway, here he is trying to take credit for her own accomplishments because he’s a douche.

R. Kelly released an album called “I Admit It.” It was quickly removed from streaming services.

Between Jennifer Lawrence saying that  “weight loss” was the biggest conversation that was had around her being cast in The Hunger Games, and Lea Michele claiming that she was urged to get a nose job because she wasn’t “pretty enough,” it’s a wonder women haven’t burnt this whole place down yet.



  • Sandition will end with season three on PBS.
  • Dangerous Liaisons has been canceled at Starz after one season. 
  • Step Up has been canceled at Starz after three seasons. (What’s going on over at Starz? I know we’re paying a lot of attention to HBO right now, but there’s also been a bloodbath at Starz recently.)
