-NYT did a profile on Jimmy Fallon and he came off … not great. I don’t remember another attempt at damage control that made things this much worse. I gave up after the part where he talked about people being upset by his Trump interview and how “it hurt my feelings that they didn’t like it.”
-Tragic: Rosario Dawson found her cousin dead in the actress’ Los Angeles home last week. No cause of death has been released.

-It was CBS’s turn at the upfronts today, where they got pissy that This Is Us has been crowned the biggest new show (it wins in the demo, but Bull actually has more total viewers), and defended the fact that all of their new fall shows have male leads. When pushed by reporters, Les Moonves said “I think we’re fine in terms of the amount of women who are behind the camera and in front of the camera.” See everyone? They’re FINE!

-Eff ya! Jordan Peele‘s next project is a Jim Crow-era HBO horror series.
