Brooklyn Nine-Nine Canceled by Fox


-It’s killing season in TV land this week. Fox just canned Brooklyn Nine-Nine (nooo!!!), The Mick and Last Man on Earth — but weirdly, they have room for a dumb Tim Allen sitcom. They still haven’t announced the fate of Lethal Weapon (I’m still shook about how bad an actor’s behaviour must have been to get thrown off a show the network wanted to renew. Actors behaving badly is the norm, so it must have been REALLY bad).  Over on NBC, Law & Order: SVU, Blindspot and the Chicago shows will survive but there’s still no word on Timeless.

-I don’t know why Chris Hemsworth and Chris Pratt did a couples photo shoot, but I’m not complaining.

-This was such a good troll for Veronica Mars fans…

Amal Clooney was so worried her Met Gala dress would rip, she changed in the gift shop. Seems like a lot of work for a not-great dress.

-So we’re in full Georgina Chapman comeback mode, right? First Scarlett Johannson wears Marchesa to the Met gaga, and now Vogue is giving her a soft-focus profile.

-In response to the profile, Yashar Ali wrote a rebuttal for HuffPo: “I’ve spoken to over a dozen survivors of Weinstein’s sexual predation about Chapman and all of them surprisingly said they believed she was aware, in some form, of Weinstein’s behavior. Two of them told me that Weinstein made misogynistic remarks to them in front of Chapman and she did not react in any way.”

Ariana Grande and Mac Miller have split after nearly two years of dating.

-People keep trying to put Justin Theroux and Emma Stone together. I’m going to continue to cling to a blind item I read that said she had no interest in dating him. I’m CLINGING to it!

-Hey Sylvester Stallone, your racism is showing.

Jennifer Garner made a music video about being a mom for Ellen. I don’t get it.

-I liked this interview with Nick Offerman: “After Parks and Rec, the parts coming my way were overweight men in briefs, crying.”

Jennifer Lopez and Jimmy Fallon faced off in a fast dance dance off!

-In an interview with Lana Del Rey for Elle, Kendall Jenner says it was “weird” when her younger sister had a baby before her.

Chris Brown is being accused of hosting a party at his L.A. home where a woman claims she was repeatedly raped by two of his friends.

-Spotify has removed R. Kelly music from its playlists, citing new hate content and hateful conduct policy. Now Sony and RCA need to drop Kelly from its roster.

-Writers for the original Roseanne series say they’re struggling to reconcile the character they wrote with the reboot’s new, Trump-loving character who jokes that her Muslim neighbors’ pile of fertilizer in their yard means they’re making a bomb. “I don’t recognize that character.”

-I really, really don’t want Roseanne to attempt to do a #MeToo episode.

-I kind of love that Jessica Chastain is walking the walk. She’s producing and starring in 355, a female spy movie with Penélope Cruz, Marion Cotillard, Lupita N’yongo and Fan Bingbing.

-Watch Deadpool apologize to David Beckham for insulting his voice in the first movie.

-I love this: Patty Jenkins may earn nine times her Wonder Woman salary for the sequel, according to Variety.

-I guess I’m in the minority but I really enjoyed I Feel Pretty. Greta Gerwig did not.

-Watch John Cho‘s frantic hunt for his missing daughter in the first Searching trailer, also starring Debra Messing.


George and Amal Clooney’s Twins Have Arrived

George and Amal Clooney‘s welcomed a boy and a girl: Ella and Alexander. It crushed my fantasy that they’d arrive on the same day as Beyonce’s twins, but at least the official statement is cute: “George is sedated and should recover in a few days.”

Gwyneth Paltrow finally admits the truth about Goop: “I don’t know what the f*ck we talk about.”

Rihanna has the best response for body shamers.

-The cast of This is Us were on Billy on the Street. I like the guy who didn’t recognize them but still insisted on hitting on Mandy Moore.

-Oh god. The Vulture movie critic who wrote that gross Wonder Woman review posted a response to the controversy, and it’s even worse. He quotes a female colleague who says women only hated his review because it was mixed and we wanted a rave. Um, no. I don’t care if his review was negative, I just wanted one that wasn’t sexist and referred to the lead character as a “babe” who cause “slobbering” with her “mouthiness.” But instead of trying to learn from it and maybe understand how his words came across in the context of this film, he double-downed with a mansplaining, patronizing followup.

-In happier news, does Wonder Woman have a real shot at a major category Oscar nominations?

-Prospects for this weekend’s Mummy reboot are growing dimmer in the face of Wonder Woman’s success. I don’t hate that.

Kristen Stewart Says Her New Buzz Cut Is ‘Practical’

Joe Manganiello is asking the media to chill out over the Batman movie. Sorry, wolf boy, that’s not how this works.
