-Yesterday Ellen DeGeneres alluded to cancel culture when she announced her show’s ending, and today she said that the toxic workplace complaints were “orchestrated”. She told the Today Show: “I really didn’t understand it. I still don’t understand it. It was too orchestrated. It was too coordinated. People get picked on, but for four months straight for me. And then for me to read in the press about a toxic work environment, when all I’ve ever heard from every guest that comes on the show is what a happy atmosphere this is and what a happy place this is.” Right, because celebrities guests who pop in for two hours would have similar experiences as fulltime crew members.

BTS alone will make it a ratings monster.

But I hate his statement about why he’s leaving: “I’ve always maintained that his journey concluded as I wanted it to. The broken fairy-tale like ending between Charlotte and Sidney is different, unique and so interesting to me.” Buddy, you were playing the lead in a Jane Austen adaptation. If you didn’t realize that it would end up as a HEA, you failed to do the required reading.

John Mulaney is performing a comedy residency this week, and it sounds like he doesn’t shy away from the tough subjects, saying at one point “When I’m alone I’m with someone who tried to kill me.” He also revealed that his intervention involved Seth Meyers, Nick Kroll, Fred Armisen, Natasha Lyonne, and Bill Hader.
