-NBC finally cancelled Timeless (though it may get a 2-hour wrap up). The odds were never great, but I don’t know why NBC strung along its fans so long.

Liam Neeson is a very considerate theatre attendee.

Busy Philipps talks about the harassment she’s faced and how she dealt with it: “If you wanted to be a woman and you wanted to work you had a choice to be easygoing about it or not. I wanted to work, that was always my goal. If that meant laughing off a joke at my expense, so be it.”

-Wait, is Drake dropping TWO new albums next week?

-Luke Cage season two drops today, and the critical consensus seems to be that it’s 13 episodes that should have been 4.

Ben Affleck has dropped out of Netflix’s Triple Frontier “to take some time to focus on his wellness and his family.” He was spotted on a low-key outing in NYC with Lindsay Shookus today.

-Meanwhile, everyone needs to slow their roll when it comes to jumping on Ben about that “on-screen gay kiss” quote. First of all, it’s not even a direct quote; it’s a story that Kevin Smith told. Secondly, the story was from 20 years ago. Unclench, people.

Julia Roberts‘ TV series Homecoming is coming to Amazon, so expect that to sweep the Emmys next year.

-This video that’s gone viral of Mariah Carey’s dance moves speaks to my productivity level today.

-HBO just announced a new series about an alternate reality where slavery was never outlawed — created by Game of Thrones’ white showrunners Benioff/Weiss. Yes, they brought on Nichelle Tramble Spellman (Justified) and Malcolm Spellman (Empire) as EPs but … yikes. HBO NO, amirite?

Paul Wesley and Phoebe Tonkin Reunited?

-CW stars Paul Wesley and Phoebe Tonkin split last month after four years of dating, but it looks like they might be back on. This is some CW-levels of romantic drama. Way to stay on brand, guys!

-This profile on Elisabeth Moss includes lots of interesting tidbits, including the fact she memorized The Handmaid’s Tale’s frequent voiceovers so she could repeat them in her head when shooting those scenes so that the words would match her expressions, and that she signed on to the show for 5-7 seasons (which is troubling).

-Also, The Muse poses a good question: is it relevant that the star of The Handmaid’s Tale belongs to a secretive, allegedly oppressive religion?

Madonna is not a fan of Universal’s Blond Ambition biopic and she fired off a string of Instagram posts to let world to know. “Why would Universal Studios want to make a movie about me based on a script that is all lies???” she wrote in a now-deleted post. I’m guessing this means the producers won’t be asking to use her music in it?

-On the Tonight Show, Leslie Jones had a wild story for Dr. Phil and he had to figure out if it was true or false. Props to Dr. Phil for keeping a straight face when she starts talking about her date’s nuts…

David Fincher is doing pal Brad Pitt a huge favour by agreeing to direct the World War Z sequel.

Keira Knightley and Andrew Lincoln filmed an adorable new Love Actually charity video inviting fans to visit them in London for “cuddles” and “a cup of tea.”

-It’s hard to judge the new season of Fargo because I’ve only seen one episode but I found it mind-numbingly boring, so I liked this article about how “prestige TV” is often  formulaic fare that’s serving you a Big Mac and convincing you it’s a steak.
