One ‘Succession’ mystery has been answered by its creator

This poor cat.

Here’s A BUNCH OF TV News

Hey, remember in Succession when there was some question over whether Logan Roy had underlined or crossed out Kendall’s name? Jesse Armstrong, the showrunner and the man who actually drew the line, has your answer:

And that’s great, but I need to know if Jaryd Mencken took office or not.

The late-night boys — Jimmy Kimmel, Stephen Colbert, Jimmy Fallon, Seth Meyers, and John Oliver — have started their own podcast to raise money for their staff during the strike. There have been a bunch of revelations from the show, including that Matt Damon and Ben Affleck offered to pay Kimmel’s writers during the strike, and that Kimmel was prepared to retire before the strike happened. But no story is more amazing than this one by Stephen Colbert:

Mark Thompson has officially been named Chris Licht’s replacement at CNN.

Disney is being sued by investors over shady accounting practices they allege hid streaming losses. This is interesting in terms of the ongoing strike, as a number of people wonder if one of the reasons the streamers won’t release viewership numbers is because they are trying to hide how successful streaming really is and trying to avoid paying their writers and actors what they are actually owed, or if streaming is actually a financial disaster, and they don’t want investors to know that it’s failing. Stay tuned.

RuPaul’s Drag Race‘s Monica Beverly Hillz has some doubts about  her ex Josh Seiter’s story about his Instagram being hacked, and a fake death announcement being posted, claiming he’s a “clout chaser.” HMMM. The mystery deepens.

The royal family vetoed Meghan Markle saying the word “poppycock” on Suits back in the day.

Now Kevin Costner is talking about suing Yellowstone and Paramount because since his divorce, he just hasn’t spent enough money on lawyers.

Speaking of Yellowstone, Lily Gladstone of Killers of the Flower Moon is not a fan.

Congratulations to Jay Mohr and Jeanie Buss!

Congratulations to The Ultimatum‘s SPOILER TEXT: Riah and Trey!

Love is dead. (And let me just be very clear — this nonsense about how he’s been taking care of the kids while touring, and acting like she’s not ALSO WORKING OVERSEAS, has me seeing red. His publicists are working overtime, and it’s not working.)
