Last week weekend, Deadline reported that Universal won the rights to Mindy Kaling’s and Priyanka Chopra’s new untitled comedy about a big Indian wedding that takes place in both America and India. What’s it about? We don’t know much yet because the details are sparse, but we do know that it “revolves around a big wedding in India and the ensuing culture clashes” and was described as “Crazy Rich Asians meets My Big Fat Greek Wedding. Full Story

Our site manager Emily sent me the trailer for this yesterday, with the caption “I’m not crying, you’re crying” and now I’m definitely crying, so I guess we’re all just crying. Netflix released the trailer for latest installment of Tales of the City, scheduled to air on June 7th. Full Story

The thought of the upcoming nude scene between Taron Egerton and Richard Madden in the Elton John biopic ROCKETMAN was enough to keep my motor running this month (even though it might be getting cut and straightwashed like Bohemian Rhapsody). So, you can imagine that all the talk about Richard Madden and Brandon Flynn (who used date Sam Smith) hanging out together obviously sent my thoughts racing. Full Story

You might as well call me The Oracle from The Matrix because I predicted the sh-t out of this latest episode. On Thursday, I wrote about how there is some serious foreshadowing in the Season 11 promo, and I even said these exact words: “For example, Rajah O’Hara pushes Scarlet Envy out of the way. Full Story

Although I’m now a huge fan of the show, I joined the Game of Thrones train a little late, somewhere between Season 4 and Season 5. The show is famous for its merciless killing of beloved characters. For most, their “Game of Thrones moment” was either Ned Stark’s death in Season 1, or the Red Wedding in Season 3. Full Story

The Billboard Music Awards will be airing on May 1st, hosted by Kelly Clarkson, and the nominees were announced yesterday. You probably don’t care about the Billboard Music Awards and understandably so – except for two fan voted categories, the winners and nominees are based on sales, streaming, and a few other metrics that Billboard tracks every year starting in March. Full Story

We’re already down to 10 queens in tonight’s episode even though it feels like we just started. The challenge this week is about the first ever “Draglympics.” At this point in the season, there are already some frontrunners in the competition (*cough* Yvie Oddly) and others who probably should start packing their bags (*cough* Rajah O’Hara). Full Story

Ariana Grande dropped a new song and music video yesterday called "Monopoly", with best ring buddy, Victoria Monét. Actually dropping a song on April Fools' is some Big Dick Energy, because I don’t know about you, but I was on guard all day yesterday. My mom could say, “I love you!” on April 1st and I would be like, WHERE’S THE JOKE?  "Monopoly" is definitely a bop, though it took me a few listens to get into it. Full Story

On Thursday, one of the greatest shows on television aired its final episode, and it was everything. I ugly cried both during and after that finale, and I’m still not okay. Fans knew this day was coming, but ending the show was always going to be a herculean task. How do you conclude a friendship like Abbi and Ilana’s in a way that’s true to the show’s brand, but also funny and satisfying for the viewer?  watching the finale of @broadcity Full Story
