Happy Thanksgiving, everybody! 

It's turkey week and, while you're stuffing your face while arguing with that crazy uncle of yours, enjoy sneaking an earbud into your ear to take a listen to our wild and crazy show.

Oh, and we ate some Crack Pie, courtesy of Momofuku Milkbar. And it was fuuuuckin' tasty. 

NEWS HIGHLIGHTS THIS WEEK:

  • "Big Mouth" has been renewed for a third season.
  • Jon Cryer has been cast as Lex Luthor on "Supergirl."
  • Benedict Cumberbatch was almost cast as Vampire Bill in HBO's "True Blood."
  • A "Jack Reacher" TV series is in the works at Paramount Television. According to TV Line, the books' author, Lee Child, said, “for all his talent, [Tom Cruise] didn’t have that physicality.” So, for the TV series, they’re looking for someone who more closely matches the books’ description of Reacher. Basically, to sum up, Tom Cruise is too short.
  • SYFY announced its first original late-night animated series, "Alien News Desk." Set to debut early 2019, the series is a weekly, half-hour topical animated series set in an extraterrestrial newsroom. Voiced by Will Forte (as alien news anchor “Drexx Drudlarr”) and “Saturday Night Live’s” Heidi Gardner (alien co-anchor “Tuva Van Void”), the 12-episode series will cover up-to-the-minute news and commentary about the universe’s most baffling species - the inscrutable Humans of Planet Earth.
