Andy and Anderson’s sober New Year’s Eve feels like an omen for what’s to come in 2023 … and not a good one.

Going into 2023 with this energy:

Here’s A BUNCH OF TV News

Andy and Anderson did not drink on New Year’s Eve and it was just as infuriating as everyone expected it to be.

Kevin Hart gets it:

Additionally, Don Lemon hosted the Central Time Zone midnight celebrations from New Orleans — sober — and the network managed to miss the countdown altogether because they were watching a performance of “Back That Ass Up.” And you know what? It was perfect. No notes.

As for what they are up to now that New Year’s Eve is over: Anderson Cooper landed the first interview with Prince Harry about his new memoir, Spare.

And Andy Cohen is still out here starting beef with other talk show hosts.

The Witcher season three might be split into two parts. They’re blaming it on VFX delays, but I can’t help but note that Netflix’s overall stock performance improved when they split Stranger Things up into two parts, airing them in different fiscal quarters, thereby improving ratings in both. Might they be doing something similar here?

The Blood and Cheese plot is coming to House of the Dragon, and you need to prepare yourselves because it’s ROUGH. (And no, I haven’t given up on HotD — I’ve just been knocked backwards by the holidays. Sorry!)

Stranger Things is going to kill Will, aren’t they? Goddammit.

John Stamos told Dax Shepard on his podcast that he almost dated Shepard’s now-wife Kristen Bell, but that she was too young for him. The age difference at the time was 17 years. Stamos is now married to a woman who is 23 years younger than him, so, yeah, I don’t think that was the issue.

No one is asking for a 7th Heaven reboot. Literally, no one.


I strongly approve of this list of satires.

Anyone who thinks for one second that Teresa Guidice would ever leave The Real Housewives of New Jersey is an idiot. Andy Cohen could fire her on air, and she’d still hunt down the shooting locations, show up, and throw shit.

An argument that The Real Housewives is art.

Recover quickly, Jeremy Renner. And be safe out there, kids.

I’d tell Shane McGowan to get better but this man is the walking dead. He’ll be fine.

Barbara Walters, Legendary and trailblazing journalist.

I never met the woman but I feel strangely connected to her: I have my own weird history with The View and working with Star Jones (not the most pleasant experience) and Walters was something of a hero at my son’s college. Walters attended Sarah Lawrence, and they recently named the student center after her, which houses all of her Emmys, and other achievements:

Walters was the first woman to co-host The Today Show, and the first woman to co-anchor the nightly news, and for a long time, she was the highest-paid television journalist making as much as $12 million a year. She co-hosted 20/20 for years, created the daytime talk show The View, and became perhaps the most famous celebrity interviewer of all time.

Walters is not without her critics: she was a woman of her time, and some of her comments have not aged well, particularly the time she scolded Corey Feldmann for calling out pedophilia in Hollywood:

And I’m not defending that by any means. But she was a fierce journalist who opened the doors for many women — particularly, as you will see from the tributes below, women of color. And that is worth recognizing and honoring.

  1. Minor spoiler for yesterday’s Simpsons: The episode featured a gag about George R.R. Martin wasting time; but at least the character wasn’t actually voiced by Martin, which would have been (fill in the blank).
