Most-viewed first season in Netflix’s history… Congratulations to DJ Khaled… Prince Harry & Meghan Markle threaten legal action… Jonas Brothers chat about TikTok… and Peter Weber’s plot twist theories
Netflix announced that during its first four weeks, 76M households watched their new show “The Witcher” starring Henry Cavill, aka Superman. This would give “The Witcher” the record of being the biggest first season debut for any show in Netflix’s history. But! There’s a catch. Netflix has changed the rules for what they consider a view. Previously, you had to watch at least 70 percent of a show or a movie to be counted as a view. Now? You only have to watch for TWO MINUTES. Under their new 2-minute system, Netflix says the second season of “You” was seen by 54M member households in its first four weeks of release, while the third season of “The Crown” — with its brand new cast! — was seen by more than 21M households. That’s up from 40 percent from Season 2.
Who’s the saddest little boy in the world? His name is Asahd. He is 3. And his little world has just been rocked by the addition of his new baby brother. DJ Khaled’s wife delivered their second son on Monday. We’re still waiting on a name. But they did things a little differently this time around. When Asahd was born, DJ Khaled live-streamed the birth. This time around, he just posted pictures on his Instagram feed.
Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are stopping this nonsense right now. Less than 24 hours after he reunited with his wife in Canada, Harry had his lawyer’s send out a letter to British news outlets, threatening legal action if they continue to buy and publish any pictures of them taken by paparazzi who have been stalking and harassing them non-stop. According to the letter obtained by NBC, paparazzi have reportedly set up a permanent campsite outside their current home and that “there are serious safety concerns about how the paparazzi are driving and the risk to life they pose.”
The Jonas Brothers are killing it on TikTok. First they did a hilarious re-enactment of a 2008 Season 2 scene of “Keeping Up With the Kardashians” where Kim hit Khloe with her purse. They followed that up with a re-enactment of a scene from their 2008 Disney movie “Camp Rock,” complete with wigs that looked just like their truly awful hairdos in that movie. (Coincidence both of these scenes occurred in 2008?? Hmmm….) Anyway, it will be fun to see what they come up with next. Meantime, Nick says to expect the unexpected during their Grammy performance this Sunday. He told Ellen DeGeneres, “We have a very special performance lined up. We don’t want to give anything away, but we’re playing the new song that just came out and then we’re doing something else which I don’t think anyone’s going to expect.”
Chris Harrison promises that this year’s “Bachelor” will have an ending that no one can predict, which of course causes us to try predicting how it ends. During previews, right before Peter the Pilot is about to propose to his final choice, Chris tells him, “There’s something all of us just found out.” Cut to Peter lying down on a bed saying he feels like he’s going to pass out. Cut to his mom weeping and begging Peter, “Bring her home to us!” What is going on???? A lot of fans think they’ve figured it out. Could one of the women be PREGNANT?? And is it Peter’s final choice??? And is it even Peter’s baby?????? We have to wait until freaking March to find out.
