AMC Renews ‘The Terror’ Anthology Series for Season 2, Which Is Set in an Internment Camp

‘Roseanne’ Spinoff ‘The Conners’ Ordered by ABC
Roseanne’ is returning, but without its namesake.

ABC has given a series order to “The Conners,” a spinoff starring original cast members John Goodman, Laurie Metcalf, Sara Gilbert, Lecy Goranson and Michael Fishman. Not part of the new series will be Roseanne Barr, who played the matriarch on the long running and recently revived — and more recently canceled — multi-camera comedy. Barr will, according to ABC, have no financial or creative involvement in the spinoff.

“The Conners” is slated to debut this fall and take over the 8 p.m. Tuesday time period that “Roseanne” had been slated to occupy until the show was abruptly canceled last month in response to a racist statement made on Twitter by Barr. Additional cast members and a premiere date will be announced at a later date.

Gilbert, Tom Werner, Bruce Helford, Dave Caplan, Bruce Rasmussen, and Tony Hernandez will serve as executive producers on the spinoff,

Charles Krauthammer Dies: Fox News Contributor & Pulitzer-Winning Columnist Was 68
Charles Krauthammer, a conservative veteran Fox News contributor, author and syndicated columnist, died today, less than two weeks after he’d penned a letter saying he had weeks to live. He was 68.

The news was announced by his former Washington Post colleague Paul Farhi on Twitter:

Some sad news: Charles Krauthammer has died. Our obit is coming soon.

— Paul Farhi (@farhip) June 21, 2018

In a letter read on-air June 8 by Outnumbered host Sandra Smith, Krauthammer said he had undergone surgery to remove a cancerous tumor in his abdomen and that it “caused a cascade of secondary complications” for which he has been hospitalized since. Recent tests have revealed that the cancer had returned.

He had been paralyzed since a diving-board accident in the early 1970s that confined him to a wheelchair.

“I don’t like when they make a big thing about it,” Krauthammer said in a 1984 Washington Post interview.

Another ‘Breaking Bad’ Character Is Coming to ‘Better Call Saul,’ Vince Gilligan Teases
Brace yourself, Albuquerque: Another “Breaking Bad” character is coming to Season 4 of “Better Call Saul,” creator Vince Gilligan says.

“There’s a very important character from the ‘Breaking Bad’ era that we’re going to meet this year,” Gilligan said during his show’s Masterclass panel, which was a part of the AMC Summit Wednesday in New York City.

He did not specify which character — but Gilligan believes fans will be pretty pleased overall when the AMC dramedy returns in early August.

“Season 4 is so good,” he said. “It gets darker, it gets richer. It’s still got funny in it, but on the Venn diagram of ‘Breaking Bad’ and ‘Better Call Saul,’ the overlap in the center is getting bigger and bigger.”

The 10 Best Gamecube Games of All-Time

The Nintendo Gamecube is quite different from just about everything else they have going. For starters, it’s a lot smaller than most of the other gaming systems out there. That means that it takes up a lot less space but it also means that it isn’t really compatible with any other type of gaming system. In other words, you have to buy the games specifically for this system because you can’t interchange them with anything else. That had a lot of people scratching their heads, but what the Gamecube lacks in versatility, it makes up for in quality. This is
