The ratings are in for the Golden Globes and things are not looking good. After taking off for a year to right some of their racist wrongs, the show came back Tuesday night with Jerrod Carmichael as host. The things he had to say made a lot of headlines the next day, but not a lot of people watched him say those things live. Only 6.3M tuned in, down from 6.9M who watched the last televised ceremony in 2021 with hosts Tina Fey and Amy Poehler. But the last pre-pandemic ceremony in January 2020 drew an audience of 18.3M, so this show is just bleeding itself dry.

Rachael Ray is currently in Season 17 of her daytime talk show, but Page Six says this may be it. Their industry insiders say Rachael’s about to get the ax. But when Page Six reached out to someone who actually works on the show who said, “This talk comes up every year because the show is renewed yearly. In fact, they’re out there renewing the show right now. There’s never a decision until later in the spring.” Oh, really? Because Jennifer Hudson and Sherri Shepherd both announced yesterday that their talk shows have been renewed. Jennifer is getting at least one more year and Sherri got signed through Season 3.

Nine days after he suffered cardiac arrest, Buffalo Bills safety Damar Hamlin was released from the hospital. The team announced he will continue to rehab at home and with the team. Right after he collapsed, Damar was rushed to the University of Cincinnati Medical Center, where he made what doctors there called “a remarkable recovery.” On Monday, he was well enough to be flown to a hospital in Buffalo. On Tuesday, doctors ran a ton of tests. And Wednesday morning, he got to go home! Bills quarterback Josh Allen said that as much as his teammates want to see him, they might have to wait until Damar has regained more strength. Coach Sean McDermott said it would be up to Damar to decide when that is. He said, “We’ll welcome him back as he feels ready.”

In Marvel movie news, producer and Marvel executive Nate Moore told Deadline that Harry Styles will most definitely be returning to the MCU. You had to wait all the way till the end of “Eternals” to see Harry make his debut as Thanos’ brother Eros, aka Starfox. Thanos and Eros are actually half-brothers. They share the same father. Nate told Deadline, “We didn’t cast Harry for a tag. (There are) more stories to be told with that character.” In fact, there are a LOT more stories to be told with Harry because he signed a five-movie deal with Marvel last year. With the success of “Black Panther: Wakanda Forever,” will there be a third? On the red carpet for the Golden Globes, Variety asked Letitia Wright about that and she said she thinks it’s already in the works, but they need a little break while Director Ryan Coogler “needs to get back into the lab, so it’s going to take a little while.”

Shakira was trending on Twitter this morning and I had to find out why. She teamed up with DJ Bizarrap for her new single “BZRP Music Session #53,” which she released yesterday in Spanish. So…remember how last summer Shakira and Gerard Piqué were breaking up after 11 years and 2 kids together? And you know how Gerard has been running around with 23-year-old Clara Chia, making out for the world to see? Well, Shakira doesn’t like that. And, taking a page from Taylor Swift’s songwriting playbook, Shakira lets her ex have it. She may be 22 years older than Gerard’s little hottie, but Shakira lets him know he blew it. In some of her translated lyrics, she sings, “I’m too big for you, that’s why you’re with someone just like you. I’m not coming back to you, even if you’re crying or begging.” ……..“I’m worth two 22’s. You traded a Ferrari for a Twingo. You traded a Rolex for a Casio.” In addition to her relationship drama, Shakira is also facing a $14M tax fraud trial in Spain, and she references that in her new single, too, singing to Gerard, “You left me with my mother-in-law as a neighbor. With the press at my door and debt with the taxman. You thought you’d hurt me and I came back stronger. Women don’t cry anymore, women invoice.” In another part she sings, “From love to hate there’s only one step. No hard feelings baby, I wish you the best with my supposed replacement.” Gerard responded on Twitter by posting a bunch of circus emojis.
