Here’s A BUNCH OF TV News

Because it’s a holiday and because I’m doing other things, and because I want to give everyone a chance to watch the finales if they didn’t last night, I’m going to hold off on the Succession and Barry discussion until tomorrow. Cool? Cool.

House of the Dragon season two will have two fewer episodes than season one for storytelling reasons. Namely, they don’t have to establish a bunch of backstory — they can just dive right into it.

Accordign to Francesa Orsi:

“There was some question about the narrative shape of season two. We were developing it with Ryan Condal and [EP] Sara Hess, and we realized that we were sort of treading water narratively in the middle of the season. So it just felt much more rigorous, more urgent emotional arc for our characters if we compressed the season. And then that also dictated how we would kick off season three.”

Mike White seems open to the idea of a White Lotus “all-star” season. YES PLEASE. And BRING BACK TANYA.

Ahead of the Paramount+ with Showtime rebrand, they are offering a deal on the Paramount+ with Showtime bundle for $5.99 a month for three months — but only if you act fast.

Kelly Clarkson is moving her show to New York City to be closer to family, in case you were wondering. (But what about all her crew and employees who will have to move away from their families?)

Seinfeld‘s “Man-hands” was based on the wife of one of the writers (and the executive producer of Veep), David Mandel. He calls it a “Shakespeare sonnet” to his wife. I’m sure she disagrees.

Please do not threaten the lives of showrunners.


The FBI is investigating a potential hack of Fox News, tied to those Tucker Carlson leaks, and it wasn’t by any of the main suspects. Stay tuned.
