Put in your bets now: who will win on Succession?

The only thing more delightful than penguins in real time are penguins at 5x speed:

Here’s A BUNCH OF TV News

The Succession series finale is happening this Sunday, and this is your reminder — and a plea — to download Max BEFORE THEN so as to prevent a tech meltdown at premiere time.

The safe bet is that Waystar Royco gets sold to GoJo. But there is a good argument for Greg, despite the long odds.

We still have lots of questions that need answering in this finale.

Succession director and executive director Mark Mylod explains how he made THAT episode.

Your other favorite HBO shows aren’t returning anytime soon. According to Francesa Orsi, an HBO & Max Content Chairman, The Last of Us won’t return until 2025, The White Lotus was supposed to return in 2024, but with the strike might not be back until 2025; and they are HOPING that Euphoria will return in 2025, but they’re not sure. The fact that House of the Dragon won’t return until 2024 is starting to look like good news, in light of all this.

Here’s hoping Prime Video won’t crack down on password sharing anytime soon.

Jane Fonda has zero fucks to give. I love her.

She’s not wrong.

Continuing to send good thoughts to Celine Dion.
