Listen to “Showbiz – Nov 19, 2020” on Spreaker.


Halloween came and went, and no “Great Pumpkin”????? Last month, Apple TV+ became the new home to all the Peanuts holiday specials, and a lot of people were super upset that it wasn’t aired on network television. So after making a deal with PBS, you can watch “A Charlie Brown Thanksgiving” ad-free there on Nov. 22, and “A Charlie Brown Christmas” on Dec. 13. And then both specials will be available to stream for free on Apple TV+. You can catch the Thanksgiving special from Nov. 25-27, and the Christmas special from Dec. 11-13.

Yesterday Netflix released the poster for their upcoming sequel to 2005’s “The Adventures of Sharkboy & Lavagirl.” First of all, who knew this was even happening?? But the new film is called “We Can Be Heroes.” Taylor Dooley returns as the now grownup Lavagirl, but that’s not Taylor Lautner pretending to be Sharkboy in that poster. That would be an actor named JJ Dashnaw. Fans are LIVID. We’re not sure why Taylor didn’t return. Was he even asked? Did he decline? Either way, Twitter was up in arms, asking, “What was Taylor Lautner doing that was so important he couldn’t help us relive our childhoods for a second??” But it is what is is. By the way, Pedro Pascal, Priyanka Chopra-Jonas, Christian Slater and Boyd Holbrook are all in the sequel, playing members of a superhero team called the Heroics.

JoJo Siwa is experiencing her first heartbreak. She and Mark Bontempo have broken up. But JoJo says there are no hard feelings, and she wants her fans to be nice to him. She responded to a fan who said she was unfollowing Mark on Instagram, “…Mark doesn’t deserve hateful things like this. He deserves to have people support him. You have NO idea about mark and I’s relationship. how much fun it was. how happy we both were, and how happy we both are. We decided it’s best for us to not be in a relationship…. that’s all. Still friends, I still have his back and he has mine. If you don’t wanna follow him like the millions of other people on Instagram you don’t follow that’s fine, but this post is immature. He is not toxic. We’re teenagers. And our relationship didn’t work out right now. He did nothing. I did nothing. Just better being friends. Relax.”

The Queen of Christmas — Mariah Carey — is being joined by Ariana Grande, Tiffany Haddish, Jennifer Hudson, Snoop Dogg and MORE for “Mariah Carey’s Magical Christmas Special,” which premieres Dec. 4 on Apple TV+. The story is, Mariah has to help Santa solve a last-minute “holiday cheer crisis” at the North Pole and save Christmas. The special is a mix of musical performances and animation. Mariah’s twins, Moroccan and Monroe, will also play a part in the special. And to coincide with the Dec. 4 release of her Christmas special, Mariah is also releasing a new single and music video for her song, “Oh Santa!”

It was announced that Cardi B is this year’s Billboard’s Woman of the Year, and she had a little something to say to her “cry baby” haters who don’t believe she deserves it. Cardi posted an Instagram video saying she just keeps proving people wrong because, “I do what they say I can’t.” Cardi will receive her honor at the 2020 Women in Music Event on Dec. 10. Other women being honored that night include Jennifer Lopez, who will receive the Icon Award; Dolly Parton, the Hitmaker Award; Dua Lipa, the Powerhouse Award; and Chloe x Halle, the Rising Star Award.
