-Damn. Chris Hardwick  just got #MeToo’d and this one is hitting me hard. The Nerdist was the very first podcast I ever listened to and although his earnestness was slightly grating, I always thought he sounded like a good dude. Of course, my feelings don’t matter; Chloe Dystra’s does. Good on her for speaking up. Even though she never explicitly names him, it’s clear who she’s talking about and her story is incredibly disturbing. I’m so over toxic fanboys who were nerdy/bullied in high school and now feel like they’re owed something. They’re really not.

-Meanwhile, here is the Nerdist podcast in which Chloe and Chris talk about the surgery she references in her essay. It’s … not good. Start around the 1 hour, 20 min mark.

-Speaking of network shakeups, CBS has retained outside counsel to investigate NCIS: New Orleans’ writer-producer Brad Kern, who just got a new 2-year deal.
