As a person who has a reliable internet connection and a Netflix account, I was not aware that America’s Funniest Home Videos was still on the air. And by “on the air”, I mean that in the archaic sense in that it is still being broadcast on network television and if you have a pair of rabbit ears and a boob tube, you can still watch it at 7:00 every Sunday night (weather permitting). If you, like me, thought that YouTube and Twitter had all but made AFV obsolete, welcome back to the real world. Not only is AFV still a going concern, former host Bob Saget will be back on the air in a new, naughty version called Videos After Dark. According to Variety, ABC has just ordered 2 seasons of the “adult-oriented” clip show. And no, this is not RedTube4TV. The clips will be vintage AFV clips that were previously deemed too hot to broadcast!
The last couple of seasons of The Affair, like any long-term relationship, were getting a little stale. Sure, it started with hot waterfront boning in the Hamptons, but then it just dissipated to a bunch of tired tricks talking about feelings and not showing enough skin. Well, this season actually got interesting, especially when… (SPOILER ALERT AFTER THE JUMP!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!)
Just about a year ago, HBO confirmed that True Detective would be coming back for a third season and that it would star Moonlight Oscar winner and the color yellow’s best friend Mahershala Ali. I guess HBO knew we would all need at least 4 years to wash the Vince Vaughn from our collective memories before they dared revisit the show, because we are only now getting a trailer for Season 3 which will premiere in January, 2019.
HBO remains pretty tight-lipped about the details of True Detective 3. But that’s a good thing, given it’s supposed to be a mystery and all. The biggest mystery I gleaned from the trailer is what rock did they find Stephen Dorff under and why are they punishing him with that wig? Hopefully, all will be revealed. Here’s the trailer.
I’m a glutton for punishment, especially when it comes in the form of sexy brooding, so I’m in. But what a weird choice to use clips of Morgan Freeman from Shawshank Redemption instead of just putting Mahershala in old man makeup. According to Deadline:
Season 3 will tell the story of a macabre crime in the heart of the Ozarks and a mystery that deepens over decades and plays out in three separate time periods. Ali will play the lead role of Wayne Hays, a state police detective from northwest Arkansas.
Though you wouldn’t know it from the trailer, Stephen plays Mahershala’s partner. And because the characters span decades, expect multiple dubious wigs. Season 3 was written by Nic Pizzolatto who also wrote Season 1 and will co-direct with Jeremy Saulnier. Even though I am still butthurt over season 2, I’m willing to give Mahershala and his little friend a shot at wasting my time ultimately disappointing me. I may be a sucker but I’m no fool.
Welp, like Geri Halliwell did to the Spice Girls before him, Jim Parsons has ruined his hugely popular, high-paying gig for the rest of those losers. Sorry suckers!
It was reported that CBS’ The Big Bang Theory, one of the highest rated shows on TV, was finally ending after its 12th season. When it does end, the show will be the longest-running multi-camera comedy series ever to exist. Some were wondering why the show is ending since people still watch it and not to mention those big-ass motherfucking paychecks the actors were collecting. I mean, a million an episode? I would be working there until the GRAVE, honey. Well it just wasn’t enough for one of these nerds. Specifically main nerd: Sheldon.
There’s a special breed of people like those of us who watch The Affair. Namely, that’s because we’re four seasons in, everyone sucks, and somehow we’re still watching them fuck up their lives over and over again in pretty houses. I just tell myself it’s because I pray Ruth Wilson‘s Luther co-star Idris Elba and the magic trouser snake are going to make a cameo if I watch long enough.
The episode two weeks ago really zinged us all with how Alison Bailey’s (played by Ruth) story arc progressed, and she dropped by CBS This Morning and was fielded questions about it from Gayle King. Check it out after the jump, but SPOILER ALERT! AND I DO MEAN SPOILER!
Because nothing is sacred and we should expect the announcement of “The Bible 2: Here We Go Again”any day now, Hollywood is looking at what is left on the clearance rack at what TV shows haven’t been rebooted and trying them on for size…but some shit apparently has been staring them in the face for years now and it took this long to bring it back. It’s being reported that Designing Women is next up for a return to TV, and it even has the original creator, Linda Bloodworth-Thomason behind it…but what about Julia Sugarbaker’s monologues?!
