The Good Place is back for its fourth and final season and we are so forking sad about it. But we love a good exit strategy and we trust Michael Schur with our hearts and our televisions, so we know that this is ultimately the right way to go out. We’re not happy about it! But we accept it.
To celebrate this final season of the strangest and greatest show on television, we’re giving you a little philosophy quiz – one that we hope would make Chidi Anagonye proud. So without further ado…

ICYMI, Preacher is back for its fourth and final season. And while it means the end of yet another comic book-inspired television show (RIP Luke Cage and Jessica Jones), we’re committed to giving the show a proper send off. To celebrate this weird show about a preacher with a criminal past -- and superpowers! -- we’re highlighting all of our favorite unconventional preachers. And a couple of nuns as well.

When Bachelor in Paradise premieres next month, we’ll be waiting with baited breath to see what kind of massive drama is going to pop up this time. Will John Paul Jones get stuck in a loop saying his name over and over again? (John Paul Jones. John Paul Jones.) Will Cam make us want to throw our remotes at the television. (Again?) Will Demi try to suss out who exactly is there for the right reasons?
One thing’s for sure, they’ll be on reality TV vacation in Mexico, not diving into the worlds of some of literature’s most incredible settings. But what if they were? Would it affect the outcome of the show? Would it change who arrived to film the show in the first place? There’s only one way to find out.

With Late Night starring Emma Thompson and Mindy Kaling opening this weekend the whole nation is asking itself one question. Wouldn’t it be crazy if a woman actually hosted a Late Night show? Followed by the next question. Wait, why don’t any women host a Late Night show? This fall we will have Lilly Singh come in as the first female Late Night host since The Late Show Starring Joan Rivers, which dropped hastily dropped Joan as the host. There’s also Samantha Bee doing the lord’s work on her weekly show Full Frontal, and while it doesn’t fall under the same umbrella we can’t just not bring it up.
We are in a comedy golden age that is being helmed by women and Late Night should be reflecting that. Here are our nominees.

Season 15 of The Bachelorette has started and the drama is already ramping up. (Chill, dudes!) We’re still dissecting the entrances and opening weird flexes of all of Hannah B’s suitors. But what if – just to shake things up – Chris Harrison introduced a new group of men for next week? We were thinking…some literary dudes might fit the bill? Here’s our dream line up of literary bachelors – and exactly how we envision those first moments at the mansion playing out.
