“The Good Fight” will end with upcoming season six on Paramount+.“We’ve loved fighting ‘The Good Fight ’these last six seasons,” said series creators/showrunners Robert and Michelle King. “To be able to tell stories about an upside-down world in real time has been a gift. And to have worked with these talented, brilliant, generous actors, writers and crew has been a blessing. Our hope-slash-scheme is to find ways to work with all of them again in the future.” Currently under production in NYC, season six will premiere Thursday, September 8.

Matthew Morrison (“Glee”) is out as a judge on Fox’s “So You Think You Can Dance.” “After filming the audition rounds for the show and completing the selection of the 12 finalists, I did not follow competition production protocols, preventing me from being able to judge the competition fairly,” said Morrison. “I cannot apologize enough to all involved and I will be watching alongside you all on what I know will be one of the best seasons yet.” Morrison was part of a new panel of season 17 judges that also included JoJo Siwa and Stephen “tWitch” Boss.

The SEC is questioning the stock purchase that made Elon Musk the company’s largest shareholder, as well as Musk’s claim in a securities document at the time that he was a passive investor. Musk was obligated to disclose his ownership by March 14, but did not do so until April 4. And Musk’s public criticism of Twitter and recommendations about how it should change cast doubt on his status a passive investor.
