You like HBO? I had to rank the top 25 series (don’t worry, Entourage and Ballers missed the cut). It wasn’t that hard, until I hit the top three. (Uproxx)
Never had an opinion on Cole Sprouse before, but now I kinda love him.

But not as much as I love Armie Hammer.
It gets ickier.
James Woods tried to pick me and my friend up at a restaurant once. He wanted to take us to Vegas. "I'm 16" I said. "Even better" he said.— Amber Tamblyn (@ambertamblyn) September 11, 2017
But in the battle of celebrities, Kristen Bell takes it today by singing songs from Frozen at a Hurricane Irma shelter.
And the celebrity loser alert goes to Kid Rock, who dropped these two quotes as he ramps up for an apparent run for Senate. Ahem. “P.P.S. To be clear - Fuck ANYONE who takes a knee or sits during our national anthem!” “P.P.P.P.P.S. I LOVE BLACK PEOPLE!!” (Vulture)
Real life Brienne of Tarth alert! (NYPost)
“Meghan Markle’s ‘friend’: Meghan ‘doesn’t want to be a lady who lunches.’” Is that a weird sex thing? Or does Meghan Markle just not like lunch? (Celebitchy)
We’re going to review this in full when it arrives in theaters, but Sarah over at LG (and very occasional writer here) joins the chorus of others praising Aaron Sorkin’s Molly’s Game and especially Jessica Chastain’s performance, which is a relief because that trailer didn’t look great. (Lainey)
Meanwhile, Lainey herself waxes poetic about Ben Affleck and his new girlfriend Lindsay Shookus, which is a name ripe for bad puns. (LG)
Our own Courtney Enlow is on the Britney beat (naturally), ten years after Spears’ public meltdown. (Vanity Fair)
Over on Fox News, I would’ve liked to take pleasure in Eric Bolling’s ouster for sexual harassment, but the guy’s 19-year-old son sadly died hours after it was announced that Bolling had been let go. Meanwhile, Laura Ingraham is replacing Sean Hannity on Fox News at 10; Sean Hannity is moving to 9; and The Five is moving back to its 5:00 timeslot, replacing Bolling’s hour. I don’t know why I’m reporting this because no one here watches those shows, but in case your grandparents ask. (DB)
For what it’s worth, citing his connections to Russia, several lawyers on Trump’s legal team prepared for the exit of Jared Kushner earlier this year, and even drafted an exit statement. Unfortunately, it never materialized. (WSJ)
And now Jared's got Bannon gunning for him from the outside.— Jon Favreau (@jonfavs) September 12, 2017

The return of Fear the Walking Dead last night was bad. Let me count the ways. Do any of you still watch this, or am I completely on my own now? (Uproxx)
Dome’Loki read Lloyd Alexander’s The Black Cauldron to her daughter. As a child, Dome’Loki had loved The Prydain Chronicles for their adventure. As an adult she still enjoys the adventure, but appreciates the writing craft and life lessons even more. Are there books you hope to share with the children in your life? - (Cannonball Read 9)
