‘The Last of Us’ has triggered the homophobes again, LOL.

I love this dog.

Here’s A BUNCH OF TV News

The SAG Awards were last night, and on the TV side, The White Lotus was the only show to win multiple awards. (All of the winners are here.)

But we can all agree that Aubrey Plaza was the big winner of the night. Between this moment with Jenna Ortega:

And these perfect photobombs/Parks and Rec reunion:

And for whatever she said at the end of F. Murray Abraham’s speech:

She was having a night, for sure.

Also amazing — but in a bittersweet way — was Christina Applegate who brought her daughter as her date, and said that it was likely her last awards show as an actor.

The star of last night’s The Last of Us episode, Storm Reid, thinks homophobes need to get the fuck over themselves and get used to seeing more LGBTQ+ representation in storytelling. 

“Like Bella said when episode 3 came out: If you don’t like it, don’t watch,” Reid told Entertainment Weekly in an interview. “We are telling important stories. We’re telling stories of people’s experiences, and that’s what I live for. That’s what makes good storytelling because we are telling stories of people who are taking up space in the world.”

“It’s 2023. If you’re concerned about who I love, then I need you to get your priorities straight. There’s so many other things to worry about in life. Why are you concerned that these young people — or anybody — love each other? Love is beautiful, and the fact that people have things to say about it, it’s just nonsense.”

And yes, the homophobes were out here bitching about last night’s episode and review-bombing the episode — even though everything is how it unfolded in the game.


Collider has a nice roundup of the game easter eggs in last night’s The Last of Us episode. And the show’s production designer talks about creating that mall and all of the easter eggs that they tried to incorporate.

But it was the use of “Take on Me” seems to be the thing that is freaking out the game players the most, so take note.

La Brea‘s showrunner seems to be disputing those reports that the series will end next season. Reminder: NBC only renewed La Brea for a six-episode third season and released all of the actors from their contracts. That doesn’t mean they couldn’t order more episodes and sign the actors to new contracts (especially if the writers’ strike doesn’t happen or is short) but …  I mean …

As for David Appelbaum, the creator of La Brea, he told TVLine: “Right now, they’ve given us six episodes,” the showrunner affirmed. “They might add more episodes as this progresses. but there haven’t been any official decisions. A lot of that stuff is still kind of in flux.”

Warming Glow feels the same as I do about the end of Succession — which is while I would love for it to run for seven seasons, it’s probably better that it ends with four. But what I really appreciate from this piece is the “pitching a perfect game” metaphor, which works really well when we’re talking about a TV show that ends on its own terms. The longer any show goes, the more likely it is it will have a misstep and let us down. If the writers think it’s time, it’s time.

Eugene Levy is giving people hope for a Schitt’s Creek reboot.

Who do you think the highest-paid TV actor is? Yeah, wrong.

Former President Thin Skin reportedly had White House staffers call and whine to Disney about Jimmy Kimmel being SO MEAN about him, LOL. GOOD. I HOPE HE CRIED ABOUT IT.

Fox & Friends can’t tell the difference between movies and real life and nothing has surprised me less, frankly.

Yes, the timing of Adam Scott taking the role on Parks and Recreation immediately following the cancelation of Party Down does feel like maybe his joining Parks and Recreation is the reason Party Down was canceled. But he says it wasn’t in this story that still kinda suggests that it was.

Just after being crowned the most-followed woman on Instagram, Selena Gomez is taking a social media break and who can blame her, especially when she’s out here being bullied by Hailey Bieber and Kylie Jenner AND I AM A WOMAN WHO IS TECHNICALLY OLD ENOUGH TO BE A GRANDMOTHER WHY SHOULD I KNOW ANY OF THIS NONSENSE?

Love is Blind‘s S.K. is finally addressing the cheating allegations and while he’s claiming that he is taking responsibility, he’s definitely soft-pedaling his behavior, and YES I AM VERY INVESTED IN THIS STORY, SO SUE ME.

An Investigation Discovery show, Killer In Question, helped release a man who had been wrongfully imprisoned for 21 years for two murders.

Warner Bros. Discovery and Paramount+ are having a slap fight over South Park.

As I’ve mentioned a bunch of times, another writers’ strike is looming. And I only keep bringing it up because the last time we had a strike, it lasted more than 100 days, and disrupted the business in a number of ways. Here’s a look back at what happened and what we lost during the writers’ strike of 2007-2008.

Peacock is offering Peacock Premium (not to be confused with Peacock Premium Plus) for half off for a limited time.

Is Apple TV+ moving towards an advertising model? (Yes, probably, they all inevitably do, not having an advertising tier is just leaving money on the table, duh.)

Angela Basset did the thing: she checked in on Ariana DeBose after the whole BAFTA mess, and then shouted her out at the NAACP awards.

Ron DeSantis signed the bill that strips Disney of control over their special district that encompasses their theme parks to punish them for speaking out against the “Don’t Say Gay” bill. The way the GOP goes around claiming to be the pro-business, small-government party is embarrassingly laughable.

Scott Adams — the creator of the workplace cartoon Dilbert — said on his podcast that white people should “get the hell away from Black people,” labeling Blacks as a “hate group.” His cartoon was subsequently dropped from a number of newspapers, which he is now whinging about, before tweeting this:

Genuinely, he might be losing his mind.

Jansen Panettiere’s family has released a statement about his death, revealing he died of an enlarged heart. I hope the entire family finds peace.
