2023 for me so far:
Here’s A BUNCH OF TV News
In the episode, written by Grey’s executive producer/showrunner Krista Vernoff and directed by series’ executive producer Debbie Allen, it’s Meredith’s last day at Grey Sloan Memorial and the doctors plan a goodbye surprise, while Nick confronts her about the future of their relationship. Elsewhere, the interns compete to scrub in on Maggie and Winston’s groundbreaking partial heart transplant procedure, and Richard asks Teddy an important question.
The Golden Globes ratings were so low on Tuesday, NBC might not renew its contract to air them.
In contrast, despite there being “Harry and Meghan fatigue,” Prince Harry’s appearance on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert brought the show’s largest audience in two years. His book Spare has also set the largest first-day sales record at Penguin Random House.
The least surprising story of the day — possibly decade — is that Jeremy Strong remains in his Kendall Roy costume at all times while shooting the series.
General Hospital will celebrate its 60th anniversary with a special episode on April 1, and with a special episode honoring the late Sonya Eddy at the end of March. (They aired a very brief tribute on yesterday’s episode.)
Speaking of General Hospital, please stop asking Genie Francis about the infamous Luke and Laura rape scene. Y’all know that she didn’t write it, right? And that it happened 43 years ago? And that she shouldn’t be forced to defend it? Let it go, guys.
Frankie Muniz is now a NASCAR driver because sure. Why the hell not?
Fox News is losing it over M&Ms again.

Hey, remember a couple of years ago when Mandalorian actor Gina Carano wouldn’t shut the fuck up on Twitter with her terrible takes on the pandemic and trans people and the Jews? And Disney was like “hey, shut the fuck up?” and Carano was all, “LOL NO.” So they fired her? And she was like, “THAT’S FINE, I’M GOING TO MAKE ANTI-WOKE CONTENT WITH THE LUNATICS AT THE DAILY WIRE AND IT’S GOING TO BE AWESOME.” Yeah, well, Carano starred in a Daily Wire-financed movie called Terror on the Prarie which had a $75,000,000 budget. Guess how much money it made.
