Game of Thrones season 8 episode count not set, HBO “exploring” spinoff possibilities
This summer Game of Thrones will return for its seventh and penultimate season – consisting of just seven episodes – before showrunners D.B. Weiss and David Benioff wrap things up with an eighth season of six episodes.
However, as yet, HBO is yet to officially renew the epic fantasy series for season eight – a decision that the cable network’s programming president Casey Bloys says is down to the fact that the actual episode count is yet to be determined.
“The only thing we’re working out is how many episodes they want to do,” Bloys tells TV Line. “They’re still figuring it out because I think they’re trying to get a shape of the season. They always do what they think [will yield] the best version of the show. It’s all about how many they’re comfortable [with]. But I’ll always take more. If you’re afraid we’re not »

Lin-Manuel Miranda Sings a New Song for ‘The West Wing’: ‘What’s Next?’
More than 10 years after President Bartlet left the White House, “The West Wing” continues to feel relevant — maybe now more than ever. On the eve of this Friday’s presidential inauguration, “Hamilton” creator/star Lin-Manuel Miranda has written a new song for the West Wing Weekly podcast named after one of the political drama’s most oft-repeated questions: “What’s Next?” Watch below.
“Ginger get the popcorn / The filibuster is in / I’m Toby Ziegler with the drop in / What kind of day has it been?” begins the track, which is accompanied by footage of the show. Created by Aaron Sorkin, “The West Wing” ran for seven seasons between 1999 and 2006 and took place in what increasingly seems like an alternate reality where our elected officials do their utmost to serve the American people rather than themselves. »

‘Supernatural’ Reunion Staged on NBC’s ‘Timeless’ With Guest Star Misha Collins
Collins is set to guest star on an upcoming episode of the NBC action-adventure drama, which will air on Feb. 13 at 10 p.m. He will portray historical figure Eliot Ness.
In the episode, titled “Public Enemy No. 1,” when Flynn (Goran Višnjić) travels to 1931 Chicago to partner with history’s most infamous gangster, Al Capone (Cameron Gharaee), the central characters (played by Abigail Spencer, Matt Lanter and Malcolm Barrett) follow him and ally with the only man who can bring Capone down, Eliot Ness (Collins), the leader of the famous Untouchables.
“When the Eliot Ness character first came up, I immediately thought of Misha, and I’m so thrilled to be working with him again,” said executive producer and co-creator Eric Kripke. “Misha brings his charisma, his talent — and frankly, all of his angelic qualities to the role.”

CNN Defends Jim Acosta After Trump’s Spokesman Calls for Apology
CNN issued a statement on Monday defending Jim Acosta, the reporter who got in a verbal tussle with President-elect Donald Trump at last week’s press conference as Trump refused to take his question by arguing that the network was “fake news.”
Trump’s spokesman, Sean Spicer, on Sunday called for Acosta to apologize, and said that it was “highly unacceptable and inappropriate” that Acosta “took no responsibility for his behavior.”
But a CNN spokesman said, “As we have learned many times, just because Sean Spicer says something doesn’t make it true. Jim Acosta is a veteran reporter with the utmost integrity and extensive experience in covering both the White House and the President-elect. Being persistent and asking tough questions is his job, and he has our complete support.”
Trump has frequently bashed CNN before and after the election. On Wednesday, Acosta pressed Trump to answer his question. Trump was apparently upset over a CNN report »

Why Being a Youtube Star Isn’t What it’s Cracked up to Be
The Youtube “Broadcast Yourself” phenomena is much like American Idol for those who prefer to perform at home. Sometimes you get booed– or worse ignored. For some lucky few, a few watchers multiply into viral viewing and you get those 15 minutes of fame, over and over, until you either go broke and get a real job or make enough to support yourself via sponsorships. It’s a level playing field, as anyone with a webcam can upload a video. Talent does play some part, but some of the oddest performers have garnered a cult following. Although it seems like a

The Haves and the Have Nots: It's Time to Show the Own Drama Some Respect
When not gasping “Oh my God! Oh my God!” as The Haves and the Have Nots’ Katheryn chased frenemy Veronica around her mansion with a kitchen knife during Tuesday’s episode, I had two thoughts: 1. The Own drama is flippin’ awesome, and 2. not nearly enough critics acknowledge that fact.

As a fan of the series — created, Ep’d, written and directed by Tyler Perry — I find the lack of props as bewildering as it is irritating. Maybe I’d understand if I’d seen any of the Madea movies? »
Madam Secretary: We’re Going to Africa and Holy Batman, there’s another Bomb!
A fictional Secretary of State said that it takes real strength to be humble. Though on last night’s episode of Madam Secretary, being humble is completely out of the question. Elizabeth, Blake, and Daisy along with Assistant Secretary Thompson, go on an official trip to Africa. It’s to talk about bringing clean energy and allowing the young girls and women to get an education. When China got to Africa before Elizabeth and her team did, I wasn’t too surprised, to be perfectly honest. That country would do anything to further their personal gains. I totally applauded the personal win that Elizabeth
