LA's Finest pulled from air
ALSO: The Flash actor fired because of tweets. AND: .... it's a quiet day.
Actor Hartley Sawyer has played Ralph Dibney, the Elongated Man, on CW series The Flash for the past three seasons.
Past tense. It seems somebody found the tweets.
There’s always tweets.
As per Deadline, the tweets “make references to sexual assault and contain racist and homophobic language”. I’m not going to quote the tweets here. In addition to containing gross material, they also just weren’t funny.
Series Executive Producer Eric Wallace:
LA’s Finest, the female-fronted Bad Boys TV spin-off starring Gabrielle Union and Jessica Alba was set to debut its second season on June 8. The episode has been pulled at the last minute.
The series will now return at a later, yet-to-be-determined date. Launching a cop show right now is seen as toxic within the industry.

There aren’t many TV shows that I actively hate (people are welcome to their taste, even if it doesn’t match my own), but man… 13 Reasons Why…
It really says something to me that the sort of listicle the show inspires from sites looking for clicks is this from RadioTimes: “Every character who died in 13 Reasons Why”.
You may have seen this already, but over the weekend I added a guide to ten interesting under-the-radar shows (ie the shows you probably won’t see in a marketing campaign) currently streaming on new Aussie streaming service Binge.

DC Universe is an app that provides access to a large volume of DC Comics along with an increasingly smaller number of DC-related TV shows and movies. It seems like they are making every effort to kill off the app. Or, at least, the video component of the app. The sign that the DC Universe app may have its days numbered: It just killed its daily propaganda/infotainment show DC Daily.
The show has featured on-air talent including: Hector Navarro and Clarke Wolfe to Samm Levine, Sam Humphries, Whitney Moore, Amy Dallen, Tiffany Smith, Harley Quinn Smith, Brian Tong, Markeia McCarty, John Kourounis, and John Barrowman.
RIP, I guess. That show was awful.
