-EW’s Dawson’s Creek reunion was the gift that kept on giving today. The four different covers! The photo shoot! The hour-long video interview with the cast! The GIFs! The quiz! The definitive proof that Michelle Williams and Busy Philipps are soulmates! Totally bliss.
-The Roseanne reboot debut last night and the ratings were insanely, staggeringly good — 18.2 million total viewers and a 5.1 demo. (For comparison, Will & Grace returned to 10M viewers and a 3.0 in the demo.) It set a ton of ratings records, including being the biggest sitcom telecast in three years. It even got bigger ratings that its series finale 10 years ago. So basically, expect TV studios to be rebooting every 90s show they can think of now…
-I liked this thread on how the show offers an unrealistic depiction of a Trump supporter.
–Donald Glover’s animated Deadpool series isn’t happening, and he doesn’t seem very happy about it.
-In a new BBC documentary, R. Kelly’s ex-girlfriend claims he “trained” a 14-year-old girl to be his sex slave. I don’t understand how we’re in the age of Time’s Up and yet his house has yet to be raided.
-So it’s possible that Corey Feldman wasn’t actually stabbed this morning after all?
-On Dax Shepard’s podcast (who knew that was a thing?!), Anna Faris says she regrets pretending to have a perfect marriage on social media. “We intentionally cultivated this idea of like, ‘Look at this beautiful family.’ There were so many moments that were like that, but like anything on social media, you don’t post like, ‘Where the fuck is the toilet paper?’ or whatever. I think it’s a very hard forum to be genuine, and I think it does a disservice to people to not be.”
-I loved this thread on actors who are really good at making you believe in a romcom because of THE LOOK.
-Remember how Armie Hammer failed to get an Oscar nom and then he spent the next few months in sad-looking tracksuits? He says he’s moving on.
–Amal Clooney is coming to Toronto for Luminato.
–Amandla Stenberg is a teen with superpower in the The Darkest Minds trailer.
