It's Episode 100! We've done this whole celebration thing once before, back when we were that other podcast on that other website that doesn't even exist anymore. But anyway ... we're having tacos to celebrate!

You guys, there are so many new good shows this week! How did this happen? It's not even the summer yet. Holy moly!

NEWS HIGHLIGHTS THIS WEEK:

  • After the end of Season 9, Andrew Lincoln will officially be leaving "The Walking Dead." Lauren Cohan will also be leaving the series somewhere in the middle of Season 9, after contractually appearing in six episodes — she's going to star in the new ABC series "Whisky Cavalier."
  • "Roseanne" is canceled but ABC is allegedly working to make a spinoff that would center on Sara Gilbert's character Darlene, instead.
  • Let's discuss this "Lethal Weapon" drama, shall we? Clayne Crawford and Damon Wayans sound like just a nightmare. 
  • "MST3K" has announced a 30th-anniversary live tour may be coming to a city near you. It will feature reboot host Jonah Ray, Crow, Tom Servo … and Joel Hodgson. Hodgson wrote in a statement, "We’ll be performing two completely different shows as part of the tour, featuring two incredibly strange and cheesy feature films: The Brain, a Canadian sci-fi suburban nightmare, and Deathstalker, a fun sword and sandal epic with some surprisingly muppety monsters! As with last year, these are two completely different shows they’ll be alternating throughout the tour. Beginning on October 9 in Portland, ME, the tour will last six weeks, span 29 cities, and comprise 42 shows. Tickets go on sale to the general public 10 pm ET on Tuesday, June 5, 2018. So, you know… be ready for that."
  • Celebrity guests confirmed for the new season of "Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee": the late Jerry Lewis, Ellen DeGeneres, Dave Chappelle, Kate McKinnon, Hasan Minhaj, Dana Carvey, Neil Brennan, Tracy Morgan, Brian Regan, Zach Galifianakis, Alec Baldwin and John Mulaney. Season 10 premiere on July 6.
