BoJack Horseman is coming to the end of the road on Netflix – season six will be the animated comedy’s last. Part one of the season launches October 25, and part two will drop January 31, 2020. BoJack, starring Will Arnett, was the streamer’s first comedy series.

A letter from officials in Joe Biden’s presidential campaign on Sunday  asked execs at ABC, CBS, CNN, MSNBC, NBC and Fox News to refrain from giving Rudy Giuliani airtime on their shows. “We are writing today with grave concern that you continue to book Rudy Giuliani on your air to spread false, debunked conspiracy theories on behalf of Donald Trump. While you often fact check his statements in real time during your discussions, that is no longer enough. By giving him your air time, you are allowing him to introduce increasingly unhinged, unfounded and desperate lies into the national conversation,” argued Anita Dunn and Kate Bedingfield. “The decision to legitimize his increasingly outlandish and unhinged charges and behavior – calling it ‘news’ – rests solely with you.”
Locast, streamer of free local TV signals, filed a counter-suit against ABC, CBS, Fox and NBC. The networks allege Locast violated their copyrights and cost them licensing fees; in Locast’s response, it accuses the nets of “classic copyright abuse” and claims they “colluded” to shut down Locast by “threatening business retaliation” against potential partners.
Viewers of HGTV’s A Very Brady Renovation can watch the videos and vote on a winner from among the nine finalists in “A Very Brady Contest,” which drew over 3000 submissions. The prize: a six-night stay at the fully renovated, iconic Brady Bunch house in LA. 
Ruby Rose, star of CW’s upcoming Batwoman, posted a video on Instagram on Saturday that showed her getting surgery to repair herniated discs. “To everyone asking about my new Pez dispenser scar on my neck… A couple of months ago I was told I needed an emergency surgery or I was risking becoming paralyzed,” she told fans. “I was in chronic pain and yet couldn’t feel my arms.” As for why she allowed a video of the surgery to be taken, Rose joked, “Did you not watch that Greys Anatomy episode where they left a towel in a patient?”. Batwoman premieres Sunday, October 6 at 8p.
