-This has been the *craziest* week of TV news, so it’s fitting that it closes with Variety’s deep-dive into the behind-the-scenes clashes on the set of Lethal Weapon, which includes audio clips of Clayne Crawford calling costar Damon Wayans a p***y and yelling at the crew because of background noise. Variety interviewed 31(!) people who worked on the series who say the set was so toxic that by the end of the season, security guards were present at all times to ensure that disagreements would not deteriorate into physical violence. Wayans also doesn’t come off smelling like a rose; he refuses to do table reads, has to be fed every 2.5 hours, and demands scripts that featured his lines only.

–Ian McKellen gave the best answer when told that Dumbledore’s queer sexuality wouldn’t be addressed in the new Fantastic Beasts movie. “That’s a pity. Well, nobody looks to Hollywood for social commentary, do they? They only recently discovered that there were black people in the world. Hollywood has mistreated women in every possible way throughout its history. Gay men don’t exist. Gods and Monsters , I think, was the beginning of Hollywood admitting that there were gay people knocking around, even though half of Hollywood is gay.”
