The Golden Globes, The CW renews everything, and your TV commitment calculator.

Tuesday, January 10th 2017
 

The Watercooler

The Golden Globes happened on Sunday, and Meryl Streep’s speech about Trump, where she never said the word “Trump,” is all anyone is talking about.

You know who else gives great acceptance speeches? Viola Davis. Here’s hoping she gets as many chances to give them as Streep.

Here’s the full list of winners, and I am so happy about Donald Glover and Atlanta. (Glover also stood out in the crowd in a great velvet suit.) I am also amused that a ton of people on Twitter have never heard of Tom Hiddleston (who came off like a total narcissist, in a night full of narcissists.) or The Night Manager.

Before we get to the clothes, here's the cold open, which featured the kids (and Barb!) from Stranger ThingsHere's the highs and the lows from the night, the night in GIFs,  Plus the night’s winners (streaming TV!) and the losers (Jimmy Fallon!)

Speaking of losers, this is the first time in a long, long time that HBO left without a statue. Though Claire Foy was great in The Crown, Evan Rachel Wood could have easily taken home that statue for Westworld.

The ratings were up from last year, which could mean people were relieved that Ricky gervais wasn’t hosting again, or it could mean that people just wanted to watch something boring and comforting for a few hours, and you know Fallon knows how to deliver that.

Finally, let's talk about what people wore! There's lots of fashion commentary here, here and here, and a full slideshow of every look here. Spoiler alert: half of the women attending wore pink, for some reason.

My favorites were Evan Rachel Wood’s amazing velvet tuxedo, which I would totally wear, and which she was working the hell out of in every photo, Emma Stone’s starry gown, Ruth Negga’s “robot girl” dress, and Issa Rae’s sparkly white number. I also loved that Janelle Monae's dress managed to be totally her, and also had the prettiest silhouette from the back.

My least favorite, (and I am not even going to bother with the stuff that was totally boring) is Natalie Portman’s attempt to remind you that she played Jackie O, and in doing so dressed like some rich guy’s third wife in 1967. Reese Witherspoon, arrived looking like the same man’s fourth wife in 1987. Oh, and I really didn't like whatever Nicole Kidman was wearing. No, just no.

 

The Business

Showtime picked up Jamie Foxx’s White Famous to series. Jay Pharoah will play the lead. Would watch.

Showtime also ordered The Chi to series, and man, there is a lot of overlooked (until now?) talent behind this show. Would watch.

The Imitation Game and Passengers director Morten Tyldum will take on the pilot episode of Amazon’s Jack Ryan series.

Still mad about Constantine? Then you will be happy to hear that Matt Ryan will play him again on The CW Seed’s animated take on the character.

Sherlock’s ratings are down, which is kind of to be expected for a show that seems to air on a leap year cycle.

Casting: Kirsten Dunst will star and executive produce On Becoming a God, a drama about a pyramid scheme in Central Florida in the 1990s. Yorgos Lanthimos (The Lobster) will direct. Alexis Bledel will play Ofglen in Hulu’s The Handmaid’s Tale.

RenewedThe CW went on a renewal spree, and the really good news is that both Jane the Virgin and Crazy Ex-Girlfriend got another season. Showtime has renewed The Affair for a fourth seasonFreeform renewed The Fosters for a fifth season of watching Brandon make dumb decisions.

The BBC and Hulu (and Luther’s Neil Cross) are making a show about two London cops dealing with all the usual cop stuff, but in a world that everyone knows will be destroyed in 5 years. Hard Sun will start filming soon, and stars Agyness Deyn and Jim Sturgess.

 

What To Watch

Thanks to Vulture’s TV commitment calculator, I now know how many hours of TV I will watch this winter. This is why I don’t have time to watch crappy TV. It's a lot, and I barely checked any boxes for network TV.

For a rough guide of what I will be watching, check out iO9’s ultimate guide to 2017’s sci-fi and fantasy TV.

Taboo, the show I am most looking forward to this week, arrives tonight on FX. Tim Goodman liked it, though warns that if you aren’t sold on Hardy, this show might not work for you, because he’s in it a lot, and that it doesn’t move particularly fast. Alan Sepinwall, is less of a fan, and also thinks it moves too slowly, is too serious about itself, and is dark and grimy. (Though he and I agree on TV shows in general being too dark. Sometimes we'd like to watch TV during daylight hours.) The trailer is here.

Victoria, PBS’s Queen Victoria series, which based on the trailer, contains a lot less grime and nudity, also arrives this Sunday, so I am definitely watching that too.

New this week is Amazon’s Sneaky Pete, about a con-man who gets out of jail and poses as his talkative cellmate (Friday) and Netflix’s Lemony Snicket show A Series of Unfortunate Events. (also on Friday)

Returning this week is Bravo’s Girlfriends Guide to Divorce (Wednesday), Colony, USA’s alien invasion drama that stars sawyer from Lost (Thursday) and Homeland, which based on a recent trailer might hit a little too close to home, now that we are leaving the Obama years. (Sunday)

HBO’s The Young Pope, starring Jude Law as a hot young American pope, which based on the Catholic church’s current demographics seems like a weird idea, but OK, I'll go with it, arrives on Sunday. TVLine calls it one of the strangest TV shows they’ve seen in years, and reminded me that Diane Keaton is also in this. If you watch it, let me know what you thought, because I am super curious.

Did any of you watch Netflix’s One Day at a Time? I am not a big fan of family sitcoms, unless we’ve travelled back to the early 1990s and there’s a new episode of Roseanne, but the reviews are excellent. So many of these types of shows are so bad, so it's nice to hear that this one is successful.

Syfy did a season one recap of The Expanse with cats, for some reason. The show returns February 1st, so catch up now.

Crackle’s Comedians In Cars Getting Coffee is back, and the first episode featured Kristen Wiig and a 1964 Volvo.

Break out the cheesecake, because Hulu will have every episode of The Golden Girls starting on February 13th.

Also mark your calendar for May 21st, which is when those long promised episodes of Twin Peaks are arriving. More details here.

Adjust your calendars, Scandal, How to get Away With Murder and Grey’s Anatomy will not be returning next Thursday, thanks to a 20/20 special about the Trumps. Unsurprisingly, this is irritating news to a lot of people.

 

Trailers

There are so many this week that the trailers are finally getting their own section!

I know a lot of people who don’t have kids who are going to be so excited about Ronja, The Robber’s Daughter, a series from Studio Ghibli that arrives later this month.

I really love that Archer is not afraid to just completely blow up the show every couple of seasons. Based on these promos, I can’t wait for the new episodes.

Evil Brits, Jason Momoa, the Hudson’s Bay Company, why yes, Netflix’s Frontier does seem up my alley. Would watch.

Lots more tough guy talk in the trailer for Billions.

It appears that Marnie is still the one character on Girls who is making the most bad decisions.

Based on these promos, and the finally revealed (cannibals!) plot, I am suddenly way more interested in Netflix’s Santa Clarita Diet.

Speaking of bad decisions, whoever put together this trailer for Hulu’s Harlots. This is Gossip Girl’s trailer, not a trailer for an actually pretty smart take on the lives of London’s prostitutes. They could have marketed this as a racier Downton Abbey! Missed opportunity.

Let’s just hope that Margaret Atwood isn’t right, because the trailer for The Handmaid’s Tale looks a lot less post-apocalyptic, and a lot more right now than I pictured when I first read the book.

Honestly, I can’t tell if I’m Dying Up Here, Showtime’s 1970s drama about L.A.'s comedy scene is going to be great, like a 1970s Magnolia, or like HBO’s Vinyl.

 

Well that’s me for this week, but I will be back next week with a lot more. Thanks for reading! And don’t forget to pass it on! Many thanks.
