How many days before Fox picks it up?

I have no doubt that the Murdochs would happily stoop that low but with Fox about to be owned by Comcast or Disney that may be radioactive.

Especially since Disney owns the station that just axed the show in the first place.

Because Phoebe Waller-Bridge's name is starting to get out there (L3-37, in Solo), I've started up Fleabag and Killing Eve and they are both wonderfully dark maybe-comedies.

I thought both were terrific. Killing Eve is probably going to do big awards business(and rightfully so) but I thought Fleabag was one of the genuinely funniest shows I'd seen in a while.

A preview clip of the Obama bit of Fleabag's pilot was what sold me.

So I guess ABC has figured out that it's maybe not such a hot idea to get into bed with nutjobs, no matter how many people tune in.

How many days before Fox picks it up?

Love the selective misinterpretation of freedom of speech.

NFL players want to protest at work? That's not freedom of speech!

Racist comment gets someone fired? What about freedom of speech?

The amount of people that misinterpret freedom of speech is mind boggling.

Yup, and from all parts of the political spectrum. It's always freedom of speech when it's someone who supports their positions (even if they don't support the statement they're facing consequences for). But, they suddenly have a much better grasp of how freedom of speech works when the person/people facing consequences espouse viewpoints they disagree with.

Just so you know, Ambien has confirmed that its sleeping pills do not cause racism.

Gigabyte internet just became available in my area and I am looking to "cut the cord". Anyone have success streaming high quality resolution sports? Paid or otherwise. I would prefer 4K streaming if possible and would pay.

I've been a MLB.TV subscriber for a while now. It's a really terrific service at a very reasonable price if you're a big enough baseball fan to watch out of market games. I can't speak to its 4K stuff though.

YouTube tv has been great for us for $35.

For NHL games I use caststreams or nik cage and haven’t missed a game in over a year.

I tried NHL’s own service the year before and regularly dealt with blackouts and other technical mumbo jumbo.

For PPV stuff I don’t wanna buy online I use either reddit or xmeforums(sub required).

I can't believe this.  First Kate Spade, then Bourdain.  Both of suicide.

Rest In Peace Anthony Bourdain.

Enjoyed watching "Parts Unknown". 

I did a review of his book "Kitchen Condidential"  (4 out of 5 stars), after having read it a year ago. 

Anthony Bourdain outdoes himself in this quasi-comedic take on the behind the scenes happenings in a chef's kitchen. Bourdain tells a hairy and heady tale of his life as a chef, fom his earliest days to the latter years. Written with comedic sarcasm. witty. blatantly blunt and at times crude. Bourdain takes the reader on a long and winded (twisted) journey of kitchen tales., behind the scenes hijinks, blasphemous stories of strange people, cooks, customers, restaurants, bars, llanguage, etc., and weaves it to an artful dish to suit the palate, so to speak. A curiosity of a book worth a look, and, as they say in kitchen- speak, well-done!

Tell me about it! I felt like he was one of the few guys worth watching on TV. Seemed like a stand up guy.
