Can we please stop asking Jason Sudeikis about a ‘Ted Lasso’ spinoff?

First of all, I am happy to report that despite my concerns in the last two posts, we have not been crushed in an avalanche, but the snow here is NO JOKE. This is where we are staying:

We paid money for this. For some reason. Anyway.

Here’s A BUNCH OF TV News

Jenna Ortega says she turned down the Wednesday role multiple times. Girl, that show made you a household name, careful now.

A new survey shows that 21% of Fox News viewers don’t trust the network after the Dominion Voting Systems lawsuit revealed a number of text and email messages from the network’s biggest stars and executives. However, that doesn’t mean they’re going to stop watching: only 9% of those surveyed said they aren’t watching it as much as a result. This is because Fox News has created a bunch of addicts who need their supply of outrage and fear.

Hey, networks and streamers. Y’all canceling shows before their time is making people watch TV differently: a quarter of people surveyed said they wait for a show’s finale before starting to watch it out of fear that they will have their hearts broken by an unexpected cancelation. I wait for a series finale for a different reason: because I LIKE TO BINGE. DO Y’ALL HEAR ME? RELEASE IT ALL AT ONCE, DAMMIT.

Can we stop asking about a Ted Lasso spinoff now? It might happen, maybe! Ted Lasso is too valuable a product for Apple TV+ to just give up on. But I swear, every fourth story I’ve seen in the past month is someone badgering Jason Sudeikis about the future of the Ted Lasso franchise. The bottom line is that they clearly haven’t talked in serious detail about a spinoff, but no one is shutting the door on one, either. So is that clear to everyone in the back row? Can we not ask this again until an announcement is made? Or isn’t? Can we just enjoy this, the final season, without worrying about getting more?

All that said, I love the idea of Ted Lasso and Succession swapping it up and I’d watch a Coach Beard spinoff in a heartbeat.

The Last of Us had yet another fun cameo that I am only now learning about: Jason Ritter, Melanie Lynskey’s husband, was one of the clickers — and she shot him:

 Paramount+ is launching a mobile-only subscription. It will be interesting to see if other streamers follow suit.

The Bella Twins are now The Garcia Twins.


A defamation lawsuit brought against Making a Murderer on Netflix by a retired police officer has been thrown out of court.

Oh God, Joe Exotic is now running for President from prison. I’d think this is a joke but then I remember 2016 happened.

Kyle Chrisley, son of Todd and Julie Chrisley, has also been arrested. Runs in the family.

Recover quickly, Rick Allen.

Congratulations to Lindsay Lohan.
