The CBC and Pop series will conclude in 2020 with a 14-episode Season 6. Creators/stars Dan and Eugene Levy announced the news in a note posted to Twitter. “We are very excited to announce that Schitt’s Creek is coming back for a sixth season on CBC and Pop in 2020,” the father and son wrote. “We also wanted to take this opportunity to let you know that we have decided Season 6 will be our last. We are so grateful to have been given the time and creative freedom to tell this story in its totality, concluding with a final chapter that we had envisioned from the very beginning. It’s not lost on us what a rare privilege it is in this industry to get to decide when your show should take its final bow. We could never have dreamed that our fans would grow to love and care about these characters in the ways that you have.”
“Here’s the mistake I made — I stayed on television way too long," Letterman said in his first appearance on Ellen. “That’s not true,” Ellen DeGeneres responded. “Yes, it is true,” Letterman insisted. “And I’ll tell you what happened: It turns out, nobody had the guts to fire me. I should have left like, 10 years ago. You want to make sure you have some energy to direct towards other things. Now you, nothing but energy, are doing other things while you’re on television, so that’s great. I did not...All I cared about was myself and then the show was gone so I had to realize, oh, I’ve been looking through the wrong end of the telescope. There is more to life than, ‘So tell me about your pet beaver.'" ALSO: Letterman has one question he'd ask President Trump: "Don, why are you such a putz?"
The three actors have agreed to return for 13 episodes next season, up from 11 episodes in Season 1. Deadline reports Gilbert, Goodman and Metcalf would each make about $375,000 an episode, up from the $250,000 per episode they were making in Season 1 and on the Roseanne revival.
The Fox drama already saw its ratings fall last week for its first episode following Jussie Smollett's arrest for allegedly staging a hate crime. But ratings dropped either further last night, with 4 million viewers marking a new series low.
"I think there's such a reverse snobbery about intellectuals that I think it would almost be seen as a badge of honor. I think that's really concerning," Couric tells Buzzfeed News about how her CBS Evening News interview would be received today. "There's kind of reverse snobbery, weirdly, about scientists, academics, elitists — whatever you want to call them," she added. "So, I think it's permeating our perceptions of what science is and what it can do for the world."
"For a simple poster, there's a lot to think about," says Proma Khosla. "For one thing, the Iron Throne is made of Valyrian steel swords, which are among the few weapons that can destroy White Walkers – this season's number one enemy. What once was a throne for a monarch now looks like an arsenal to fight the Army of the Dead."
The hit Kevin Costner drama returns to Paramount Network on June 19.
Hank Schrader's homemade German-style lager from Season 2 is arriving in stores this summer. "I'm excited, man," says Dean Norris, who played Hank on the AMC series. "We talked about it a long time ago, but it's finally coming." Norris says it took a long time to find the right brewery. "I knew if I put out a beer, it's gonna get a lot of scrutiny—I don’t want people going, 'Ah this is crap.' We finally got one that made a really fantastic beer," he says.
Riverdale "didn't even try" with its musical tribute, says Hanh Nguyen, pointing out that it joins last year's Paramount Network TV adaptation of Heathers in failing to successfully bring the 1989 dark comedy film to television. "There’s no real attempt at presenting the Heathers plot at all, and all of the stage show’s songs are performed out of context," Nguyen says of Riverdale's second musical. "This is less of an homage and more of a Frankenstein creation, giving incoherent life to stitched-together elements. This is not an indictment on the quality of Riverdale overall; it knows the pulpy shtick that works for its audience. It just isn’t interested in giving the audience any understanding of Heathers beyond monochromatic outfits and croquet mallets." ALSO: Riverdale's Heathers musical was really about tackling school shootings in America.
“‘I lower my voice so that you take me seriously, thus enabling me to swindle you to give me money for a thing that is literally impossible. A machine that I made up in my head," the Busy Tonight host said in a deep voice of HBO's The Inventor documentary subject. Philipps added: “I obviously do not defend her actions, but enough with the voice shaming already. Was it all ultimately a lie? Yes, yes it was. But let’s not dislike this woman for trying her best to thrive in a patriarchal industry. Let’s dislike her for being a delusional thief.”
Although radio airplay for Jackson songs are down over the past few weeks since the HBO documentary premiered, the King of Pop's streaming numbers are up. The hoopla over the documentary also boosted ticket sales of Cirque du Soleil’s long-running Michael Jackson ONE show in Las Vegas.
Sheen says of his Roland Bloom character: "There’s the Roy Cohn connection obviously, and there’s a bit of Roger Stone in terms of the flamboyance and the outrageousness." As for his ex-girlfriend Silverman's "Great Christine Baranski" penis joke, Sheen says he and Christine Baranski "definitely talked about it (while working together on The Good Fight). That was something Sarah just made up, in so much as it’s not true. It’s a joke that she made up. But poor Christine has had to be asked about that over and over again, so I feel sorry for her. I cleared that up with her fairly early on, and just said, 'Look, you know, it’s not true. Sarah made that up.' Actually, there’s a little nod to it in the first scene that we have together, which felt quite cheeky."
“The One Where My Rent Went Up $12,000,” Cox captioned an Instagram video, featuring Friends' transition music.
