Cheer's Navarro College may have to choose between Netflix fame and, uh, regionals

Cheer's Navarro College may have to choose between Netflix fame and, uh, regionals

Released earlier this month, Netflix’s new docuseries Cheer quickly caught people’s eye with its unflinching look at the demands placed on the young members of one of the country’s most successful and prestigious cheerleading programs. Filmed by Last Chance U’s Greg Whiteley, the series embeds itself in Monica Aldama’s award-bedecked program at Navarro College, capturing the triumphs, the...

Howard The Duck and Tigra And Dazzler are both dead at Hulu

Howard The Duck and Tigra And Dazzler are both dead at Hulu

While its film projects are currently comfortably resting on their multi-billion-dollar laurels—and prepping for a whole new push when Black Widow arrives in theaters this May—Marvel’s TV fortunes have never been quite so smooth. With the various Marvel Netflix shows now consigned to the dust of too-many-ninjas history, and its only currently extant show now the...

Why yes, the new Space Force logo does look a lot like the one from Star Trek

Why yes, the new Space Force logo does look a lot like the one from Star Trek

Donald Trump’s long proposed plan for a military-based “Space Force” moved from dumb idea to dumb visual design this week, as Trump tweeted out a new logo for the nascent organization of astronauts-but-hey-they’ve-got-guns. And lo, but the internet looked at this thing for about five seconds, squinted its eyes, and then declared: “That’s just the fucking Star Trek logo, you embarrassing...

Chance The Rapper to host the Punk'd reboot (on Quibi)

Chance The Rapper to host the Punk'd reboot (on Quibi)

Every famous person who knows Chance The Rapper presumably just had a chill go up their spine today, as The Wrap reports that the musician, actor, and philanthropist has just added “Punk’d host” to his extensive resume. Taking over for Ashton Kutcher, Chance will be taking the reins on the long-running prank show, which is making its way from massive viewership on MTV over the decades to, uh,...

Oh Schitt! You can actually buy some fancy soap and lotion from Rose Apothecary

Oh Schitt! You can actually buy some fancy soap and lotion from Rose Apothecary

Fans of the irrepressible Pop TV sitcom Schitt’s Creek would probably love to waltz into Rose Apothecary, David and Patrick’s cunning little boutique filled with overpriced lotions, intriguing wines, and vaguely nautical bric-a-brac. Sadly we cannot, for it is fictional. But now the series has joined forces with the similarly minded outfit Beekman 1802 to push Rose Apothecary soap, tinted...

Watch Haim, Diplo, and Anderson .Paak have the time of their lives on The Price Is Right

Watch Haim, Diplo, and Anderson .Paak have the time of their lives on The Price Is Right

At 65 years old, The Price Is Right is older than most people on this planet. And, with Drew Carey in it for the long haul, it will absolutely outlive us, its glittery wheel continuing to spin as the oceans boil outside. All this is to say that most of us don’t know what it’s like to live in a world without The Price Is Right, so to actually step into its hallowed halls would be exciting for...

Aidy Bryant on writing that amazing performance into Shrill

Aidy Bryant on writing that amazing performance into Shrill

[This post contains plot details from the second season of Shrill, specifically the fourth episode, “Freak.”]

One of the strengths of Shrill’s second season , which arrived in full on Hulu today, is its eagerness to engage with more aspects of the life of Aidy Bryant’s Annie Easton—as Bryant told us , season one felt like a “character study... it was all about her getting from point A to point...

Ewan McGregor says Disney's Obi-Wan delay "not really as dramatic as it might seem"

Ewan McGregor says Disney's Obi-Wan delay "not really as dramatic as it might seem"

Ewan McGregor is doing damage control. After a week of social media whispers, it was confirmed on Thursday that Disney+’s series exploring Obi-Wan Kenobi’s descent into the desert was being put “indefinitely” on hold due to concerns over the scripts. Poor McGregor, who just wanted to attend a Birds Of Prey event in peace, kept his cool while being mobbed by reporters, repeatedly asserting...

Aidy Bryant talks Shrill’s return, and we bundle up for Chilling Adventures Of Sabrina

Here’s what’s happening in the world of television for Friday, January 24, and Saturday, January 25. All times are Eastern.

Top picks

Chilling Adventures Of Sabrina (Netflix, Friday, 3:01 a.m., first half of season 2): If it feels like this Riverdale-adjacent Kiernan Shipka vehicle is back for its third or fourth go-round, rather than its second, there’s a reason for that. Roberto...

[Note: This article discusses plot details from the film version of Parasite.]

Of the various exciting improbabilities surrounding Bong Joon ho’s cross-cultural class warfare hit Parasite , few have been odder than its potential future status as a prestige HBO TV show .

Let Will Ferrell tell you about the time he crashed one of Puff Daddy's SNL rehearsals in character

Let Will Ferrell tell you about the time he crashed one of Puff Daddy's SNL rehearsals in character

The paradox of Saturday Night Live, for anyone who’s ever looked very far into the show’s behind-the-scenes culture, is that it’s apparently one of the most miserable places on the planet to work, despite being filled with some of its most funny and comedically talented folks. The show’s breakneck scheduling, the stakes of live TV production, and the watchful, dead-eyed looming...

Disney+'s Obi-Wan show has been struck down to a measly 4 episodes, placed on indefinite hold

Disney+'s Obi-Wan show has been struck down to a measly 4 episodes, placed on indefinite hold

After a week of rumors about the fate of its proposed Disney+ series—focused on Ewan McGregor’s take on Jedi Master-turned-kooky-hermit Obi-Wan Kenobi—Collider and THR are both reporting today that production on the series has now been abruptly put on hold. The show’s crew has also been sent home, while the series’ scripts are being re-worked to LucasFilm’s satisfaction, after possible...

Tracking the evolution of Joey and Shooby's impossibly pure bromance on The Circle

Tracking the evolution of Joey and Shooby's impossibly pure bromance on The Circle

On its surface, The Circle  sounds like some shallow, bingeable trash. Stick around until the second episode, however, and you’ll likely be hooked. The social media competition that forms the spine of the Netflix series—players communicate solely through a social media platform, trying to convey authenticity so as not to get blocked by the game’s “influencers”—isn’t all that gripping in a...

Here's what's coming to (and going from) HBO in February

Here's what's coming to (and going from) HBO in February

Celebrating the true American entrepreneurial spirit—i.e., ripping off a bunch of regular people from beneath the ostensible auspices of corporate benevolence—HBO (and its accompanying streaming service, HBO Now) are going in hard for its new docuseries McMillion$ with next month’s slate of releases. Produced by Mark Wahlberg, the six-part series will begin airing, on both the network and the...

American Crime Story's Impeachment season casts Betty Gilpin as Ann Coulter

American Crime Story's Impeachment season casts Betty Gilpin as Ann Coulter

Everybody’s talking about impeachments these days for some reason (we only follow pop culture news, not regular news), which means it’s the perfect time for FX to start ramping up the promotional machine for Ryan Murphy’s upcoming Impeachment season of the American Crime Story anthology series. Unlike this current impeachment trial, which we don’t know anything about (but apparently involves...

R.I.P. Bachelorette contestant Tyler Gwozdz

Former Bachelorette contestant Tyler Gwozdz has died of an apparent overdose in Florida, according to The Hollywood Reporter

Gwodz was a contestant on the 15th Bachelorette season last year, receiving the first one-on-one date, but left abruptly mid-season. His departure wasn’t given much of an explanation; Refinery 29 notes that Bachelorette Hannah Brown told the camera: “Tyler G. had to...

Adam Driver cleans up the set before returning to SNL this Saturday

Adam Driver cleans up the set before returning to SNL this Saturday

Adam Driver is back for his third time hosting Saturday Night Live and he’s a guest host we actively look forward to—because he kills it, from the brilliant “Undercover Boss: Starkiller Base” to the extremely senior Abraham H. Parnassus on “Career Day.” So leave it to Driver to offer a show teaser that stands apart from the typical “host promises some jokes alongside a few SNL cast...

RuPaul's Drag Race reveals the season 12 competing queens

RuPaul's Drag Race reveals the season 12 competing queens

In a punk-fueled runway display scored by RuPaul Charles’ “American,” RuPaul’s Drag Race revealed the 13 queens who will compete for the coveted Drag Superstar crown. Reigning queen Yvie Oddly hosted the brief showcase, which took place exclusively on Twitter. The long-coined “Ruveal” divulged little about participants themselves, but it did lean heavily on the idea of patriotism and...

Here’s what’s coming to (and going from) Netflix in February

February will be pretty big for Netflix, if only because the streaming service will have managed to defy the fates by actually producing and releasing an adaptation of Locke & Key—the white whale of indie horror comic adaptations. After many years and many different networks and streaming services all taking a stab, we thought it would never happen. Now, frankly, we’re still not convinced...
