The internet has turned The Bloater from ‘The Last of Us’ into a sex symbol and all y’all need Jesus.

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.

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?

Enjoy prison, Jen Shah.

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.

Recover quickly, Tom Sizemore.

Get better soon, Richard Gere!

Richard Belzer, Comedian and actor perhaps best known for his role as Detective Munch on Law & Order

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.”
