Freshman Valor did not make the cut. “As The CW expands to a six-night, Sunday through Friday schedule next season, we are proud to have such a deep bench of great returning series for 2018-19,” said CW president Mark Pedowitz. “By picking these ten series up for next season, we have a terrific selection of programming to choose from when we set our fall schedule in May, with more still to come.”

Trump came up during Seth Rogen’s appearance on Ellen DeGeneres’ talk show yesterday. Asked about Stormy Daniels, who played a stripper in Knocked Up, Rogen, who starred in the film, said Daniels had mentioned “some of this stuff” about herself and Trump about 10 years ago. “At the time it wasn’t that surprising,” said Rogen. “And as his campaign rolled out it became clear no one really cares about anything he did. So it didn’t really occur to me that it would come out.” As for why Daniels appeared in strip club scenes in two of his movies (also The 40-Year-Old Virgin), Rogen said that while for mainstream actresses playing a stripper could be difficult, for porn star Daniels, it was “perhaps an easy day on set.”

Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg fired back at criticism from Apple CEO Tim Cook, who said last week that Apple’s business model, monetizing products to customers rather than monetizing customers, better serves users. In a Vox podcast interview, Zuckerberg said, “I find that argument – that if you’re not paying, that somehow we can’t care about you – to be extremely glib and not at all aligned with the truth. The reality here is that if you want to build a service that helps connect everyone in the world, then there are a lot of people who can’t afford to pay. And therefore, as with a lot of media, having an advertising-supported model is the only rational model that can support building this service to reach people.”
