On Mare of Easttown, created by Brad Ingelsby, "Winslet will play a small-town Pennsylvania detective who investigates a local murder at a time when her own life is crumbling around her," according to Deadline.

Ahead of tonight's Season 8 winter premiere, USA has announced it has ordered a final chapter of Suits consisting of 10 episodes to air in summer 2020. The pickup will make Suits the longest-running USA original series, with 134 episodes. Creator Aaron Korsh tells Deadline he's been planning to end Suits since the end of Season 6. Korsh also addressed a tabloid report that NBC Universal has offered a multimillion-dollar charitable donation for Meghan Markle to return to Suits. "As of this minute I don’t know which of our old original cast will be back and which won’t because we’re so early in the season," he says. "I can tell you that those things in the papers, I have no idea what they’re talking about."
Despite the House speaker's request to delay the State of the Union speech due to security concerns over the shutdown, the president wrote he's coming anyway. In a letter to Pelosi, Trump explained that he had been assured there were no concerns about security. ”Therefore I will be honoring your invitation, and fulfilling my Constitutional duty, to deliver important information to the people and Congress of the United States of America regarding the State of our Union,” the president wrote. “It would be so very sad for our Country if the State of the Union were not delivered on time, on schedule, and very importantly, on location!” he wrote. Pelosi initially invited the president to deliver his speech on Jan. 3. But on Jan. 16, she warned about security concerns.
"Same show, same Coco, same Andy, different set, no band, and all in just 21 minutes, not counting commercials. Now, for the quiz part of this review: What's missing?" asks Verne Gay. "What's missing, obviously, is what was supposed to be here. After a three-month sabbatical during which time Conan — on tour, or off on a mountain, pondering the future of late night — was supposed to come back with a dramatically revised model of this time-honored, threadworn TV format. While not explicitly stating as much as implicitly suggesting as much, fans were promised a New Coco for a New Era. That hasn't happened, at least with the first edition as evidence. Instead, Conan now feels like a lonely, underfunded outpost in the wilds of late night TV, where the other hosts venture out nightly with their artillery aimed squarely at the easiest target in the known universe." As Gay points out, Conan having Tom Hanks as his first guest is a throwback to his old show. "Hanks is always a good guest, but someone who always seems like the first guest on refurbished shows," says Gay. "'Always' is the problematic word here: Among his many talents, Hanks just feels like the peerless, perfect late night show guest. We know because we've seen him in this role before many times. So to add to the above list: Same guest."
The Walking Dead alum will star in a multi-episode arc on the ABC drama, appearing in at least two episodes. Riggs teased the role earlier this week on Twitter, noting that he's been unemployed for almost a year.
Andy Cohen asked the former Tonight Show host last night on Watch What Happens Live, “If you could go back and redo one thing during the time from when Conan took over for you on the Tonight Show and then after 10 months you came back to the Tonight Show, what would it be?” Leno responded without hesitation, “I can’t think of anything I’d do different," adding: “Look, they’re ratings-based shows. People act like it’s your decision. ‘Well, you know, I think I’ll go back.’ The network makes these decisions. They decide when you’re going to leave and they decide they want you to come back. So there’s not a lot different I would have done.”
"I was trying to figure out what to say but I can’t I’m truly heartbroken by this and just really hurt as the hours pass," the Rel star wrote on Instagram last night.

In another Instagram post this morning, Howery wrote that Barnett "was brilliant and was a very hard worker...Kevin was somebody I would always give sh*t to because it was fun and funny plus he had the same crazy sense of humor... Over the years we would have some hysterical dope convos and exchange crazy stories... I can’t stop crying on this plane it’s really starting to hit me that he is actually gone... At 32 he accomplished so much in this business and was respected by many... Rest In Peace my brother and my friend... Thank you for the last 6 years of helping make my dreams come true man."

The Jane the Virgin star responded this morning on SiriusXM's Sway in the Morning to accusations that she was making anti-black comments to the press in recent months, including comments about black actresses earning more than Latina actresses. She also received backlash for comments about Black Panther. “What I was saying, was that when we talk about equal pay, we have to talk about intersectionality because we all must rise,” Rodriguez said this morning. “And so the backlash was devastating to say the least because the black community was the only community I looked towards growing up. We didn’t have many Latino shows and the black community made me feel like I was seen. So to get anti-black is to say I’m anti-family.”
