Here’s A BUNCH OF TV News
On this President’s Day, two bits of presidential business:
President Biden made a surprise and historic visit to Ukraine today, meeting with President Zelensky and making a big, bold show of support against Russia’s aggression.
President Jimmy Carter’s family sadly announced that he has entered hospice care at his home in Georgia. He is 98.
To our friends Jimmy and Rosalynn and to their family – Jill and I are with you in prayer and send you our love.
We admire you for the strength and humility you have shown in difficult times. May you continue your journey with grace and dignity, and God grant you peace.
— President Biden (@POTUS) February 19, 2023

🧵(1/3) The King Center staff and I join the nation in prayer for our former governor, state senator, and our nation's 39th President, Jimmy Carter. I consider him a friend as did my mother, Mrs. Coretta Scott King and my grandfather Dr. Martin Luther King Sr. pic.twitter.com/75amN6Kgtr

Jimmy Carter is one of the kindest most thoughtful people I’ve ever had the honor of meeting. He’s the best of us.
— Jon Stewart (@jonstewart) February 18, 2023
We've seen few humans this devoted and humble as Jimmy Carter.
Quietly continuing his mission,which was to do good.
If you must leave us go gently . Leave your heart and bravery so we might learn.
Thank you President Carter.

A timely reminder that after turning 95 years old, President Jimmy Carter suffered a fall that left him with a black eye, bruises, and 14 stitches — and still went out the next day to build homes for Habitat for Humanity.pic.twitter.com/UgYxyD7fqG

Ryan Seacrest is leaving Live with Kelly and Ryan! because he’s exhausted and honestly, who can blame him? The man is on or produces every damn show on ABC and Hulu.
The White Lotus is going to have to compete against other drama series instead of just dominating the Limited Series category of The Emmys.
Don Lemon is still on time-out over at CNN This Morning. It’s being explained that he’s “taking the day off.” OK. We’ll see.
The Directors Guild Awards were a little surprising this year, though it will have little effect on the Emmys.
Wednesday officially became the most-watched premiere of 2022.
The Boys‘ fourth season won’t be its last, thank goodness. I feel like it’s just now getting into its groove.
Evangeline Lilly is being entirely too hard on herself for her performance on Lost.
If you’ve got a few thousand dollars, you can own Walter White’s tighty-whities.
And Penn Badgley? He could have been our Jesse Pinkman. Honestly, Aaron Paul was born for the role.
And Natasha Lyonne could have been your Sabrina the Teenage Witch.
Here’s everything you need to know about The Bloater from the fifth episode of The Last of Us, including how they made him, and how he’s become a sex symbol because THE INTERNET IS TERRIBLE.

As for last night’s episode, no spoilers (well, definitely spoilers if you click the link), but the girl staring at Ellie in the diner is probably going to be important.

And if you want to spoil yourself EVEN MORE, I will point you to this interview with Bella Ramsey in which she SPOILER FONT: tells the viewers to get used to LGBT storylines and that she looks forward to Ellie being with Dina next season.
Finally, here are the video game easter eggs from last night’s episode. Again, there are spoilers in here, so tread carefully.
Don’t tell your parents — or your grandparents — but 1923 is Critical Race Theory.
Alison Brie doesn’t want to give spoilers for the fourth season of GLOW even though the show is dead, and I don’t really blame her.
The free ride for Peacock Premium on Xfinity is coming to an end this summer.
Candace Cameron Bure is out here whinging about “cancel culture” because people criticized her after she revealed her homophobia.
Bill Maher needs to remember that he’s on CNN and not HBO.
Hold up, Kristin Chenoweth went on a date with Prince? The hell?
This might be mean to say but Kim Zolciak and Kroy Biermann‘s house being in foreclosure is the least surprising piece of TV news of the day.
Welcome back to the WNBA, Britney Griner!
I haven’t had a chance to talk about the Super Bowl and the ads and the halftime show. But FoolishWatcher’s HQ was rooting for the Eagles, so you can imagine how our night went.
In any event, here are some of the best ads of the night. (I was particularly taken with the Poker Face and Netflix/GM ad with Will Ferrell.) Arguably, the worst ad of the night was Tubi’s, which made it look like viewers’ TVs were suddenly changing channels during the final quarter of the game. It was well done, but maybe too well done.
How many parties screamed at the person closest to the remote when that Tubi ad came on
— Josh Billinson (@jbillinson) February 13, 2023
That tubi ad relies on the belief that I would accidentally hit the remote and flip on a random app which I absolutely would

Richard Belzer, Comedian and actor perhaps best known for his role as Detective Munch on Law & Order
Richard Belzer “had lots of health issues, and his last words were, ‘Fuck you, motherfucker,'” a longtime friend told The Hollywood Reporter pic.twitter.com/Y8uAZw8q9c
— philip lewis (@Phil_Lewis_) February 19, 2023
“Richard Belzer’s Detective John Munch is one of television’s iconic characters. I first worked with Richard on the Law & Order/Homicide crossover and loved the character so much, I told [executive producer] Tom (Fontana) that I wanted to make him one of the original characters on SVU. The rest is history,” Dick Wolf said. “Richard brought humor and joy into all our lives, was the consummate professional and we will all miss him very much.”
Good bye mon ami. I love you.#TheBelz pic.twitter.com/CPJIyNDxYk

RIP #RichardBelzer . I know my old man’s been waiting to clean you out at the pool table upstairs. ❤️ pic.twitter.com/ZdxOQfNUO1

Richard Belzer was the first actor to welcome me when I started at SVU. Open, warm, acerbic, whip smart, surprisingly kind. I loved writing for Munch, and I loved being with Belz. We sensed this would be his parting scene. Godspeed Belz…

Missing Richard Belzer today. Working with him on Homicide to SVU has been a hilarious, surprising and always joyful experience. I'm sure he's giving 'em all a lot of laughs upstairs. 💔💔
— Julie Martin (@JulieMartinNY) February 19, 2023
I'm so sad to hear of Richard Belzer's passing. I loved this guy so much. He was one of my first friends when I got to New York to do SNL. We used to go out to dinner every week at Sheepshead Bay for lobster. One of the funniest people ever. A master at crowd work. RIP dearest. pic.twitter.com/u23co0JPA2

Rest in Peace Richard Belzer 🌹. “Belzer died early Sunday at his home in Bozouls in southwest France, writer Bill Scheft, a longtime friend of the actor, told The Hollywood Reporter. “He had lots of health issues, and his last words were, ‘Fuck you, motherfucker,'” Scheft said.”
— Michael Cudlitz (@Cudlitz) February 19, 2023
Not only was Richard Belzer cooler than you, the man was so cool that he had his own stunt Muppet. From the comedy club stage to NIGHT SHIFT, THE WRONG GUYS, FLETCH LIVES, Homicide, SVU, The X-Files (maybe the most fitting gig for a conspiracy theorist), I’d follow him anywhere. pic.twitter.com/ZHB5VujtIn

One thought on “The internet has turned The Bloater from ‘The Last of Us’ into a sex symbol and all y’all need Jesus.”
Man, Xfinity is quickly becoming not worth it at all.
