NewZ & ShowZ
The 50th Annual Daytime Emmy Awards are coming. The event is set for Friday, June 16 at 9p, which sounds kind of late for fans of daytime TV, no?
Hoping for good news? Too bad! Sex/Life has been canceled. Just the show of course. The Netflix drama was nixed after two seasons.
Once believed by me to be just a funny trending topic on Twitter, it turns out Cocaine Bear is actually a movie. But wait, there’s more! It was inspired by a true story! Catch the tale of the drug runner's plane crash, his missing cocaine, and the black bear that ate it on Peacock, streaming starting April 14.
The last episode of The Late Late Show with James Corden airs April 27. His final guests include a bevy of A-listers, including Ben Affleck, Bryan Cranston, Tom Cruise, Josh Gad, Jennifer Garner, Brett Goldstein, Kate Hudson, Allison Janney, the Kardashian family, Mila Kunis, Seth Meyers, Billy Porter and Sharon Stone.
Substack goes short form with Notes. In a recent post, Substack explained that the new features is designed to let publishers recommend posts, quotes, comments, images, and links.
NPR changed its Twitter bio and stopped tweeting from its main Twitter account, which was labeled state-affiliated media last week. It’s fun to remember how this all started with Top 8 on MySpace.
Get ready to enjoy some more unreal reality real estate. Netflix picked up season two of Buying Beverly Hills, which follows the unfolding dramas at Mauricio Umansky’s The Agency in California.
Never one to leave her name out of our mouths for long, Kim Kardashian announced this week that she will star in season 12 of American Horror Story alongside Emma Roberts. The upcoming season is dubbed “Delicate.”
Pete Davidson’s new comedy Bupkis pulls serious star power, just like he does. He writes, produces, and stars in the new Peacock series, which premieres May 4, along with Edie Falco and Joe Pesci. Guest stars include La La Anthony, Charlamagne Tha God, Machine Gun Kelly, Steve Buscemi, Al Gore, John Mulaney, Method Man, Jon Stewart and more.
And lastly…Twitter v. Substack: I’m absolutely distraught to report that Twitter and Substack are fighting. I feel like we’re the teenage kids watching our parents divorce and it’s super uncomfortable. So, anyway, that’s why funny tweets aren’t embedded in this post. It upsets me. 😭
This is more sad than funny and I hope they can figure their shit out. In the meantime, you can follow my funnieZ over on IG! THIS IS TERRIBLE!!!!!!
Talk soon, boo boos!
