File this one under "this shouldn't be a big deal, but..." AMC-backed streaming service Sundance Now has given its first ever straight-to-series order to The Chances , a show centered around two best friends: Kate (Shoshannah Stern), who is adjusting to being newly engaged, and Michael (Josh Feldman), who is attempting to move on from his ex-boyfriend. The two characters (and the actors portraying them) happen to be deaf, but just as in real life, that singular trait doesn't define them. Stern and Feldman created, wrote and star in the six-episode series, allowing for an authentic portrayal of the deaf community informed by their personal experiences. A premiere date for the series has yet to be announced. Read more... More about Sundance 2017 , Sundance Now , The Chances , Josh Feldman , and Shoshannah Stern

It acknowledges that in tragic complicated situations, all outcomes are not good. Most of this seasons dramas, in any case, havent ended at all. Last week, with just one episode to go, Ridley was adding more dramatic twists. And more characters. Each of the issues raised by these dramas is important. As viewers, though, we want to see how they weave together, and this year it feels as if theres been much less of that. A season that began with a focus on the brutal lives of immigrant farmworkers a few weeks later spent most of an episode focusing on marital discord in an upper middle class white home. Scorecard, please. Now maybe John Ridley, a first-rate talent, has a plan for the final episode that will pull it all together and direct us to the points he wants us to take away. Even if he does, American Crime has set the benchmark for 2016-2017s most oddly assembled show.

Wednesday's WWE NXT was a reminder that sometimes a warrior grinding his foe into the floor is what reveals his potential, and sometimes it's him telling his story. Drew McIntyre looked beastly as he overpowered his opponent. Nikki Cross impressed by way of smashmouth offense, as well, when she battered Ruby Riot atop the entrance ramp. Roderick Strong, meanwhile, relied on openness and honesty about his upbringing to connect with the crowd. NXT produced another strong episode on Wednesday night , as the show is clearly regaining its footing post-WrestleMania. It featured McIntyre's heavy-handed offense, Cross' overflowing adrenaline and a look into Strong's past. The following is a look at where all those wrestlers and their peers stand in the ongoing race to be NXT 's top prospects. The wrestlers' charisma, mic skills, look, gimmick and ring work determined the rankings.

And thats because he can finally get back to focusing on the issues that matter: Like, did we fake the moon landing? What really happened in Roswell? And where are Biggie and Tupac? All kidding aside, obviously we all know about your credentials and breadth of experience. For example no seriously, just recently, in an episode of Celebrity Apprentice , at the steakhouse, the mens cooking team did not impress the judges from Omaha Steaks. And there was a lot of blame to go around, but you, Mr. Trump, recognized that the real problem was a lack of leadership, and so ultimately you didnt blame Lil Jon or Meat Loaf, you fired Gary Busey. And these are the kinds of decisions that would keep me up at night. Well handled, sir. Well handled. Say what you will about Mr. Trump, he certainly would bring some change to the White House.

perhaps a little bit overlooking some of the facts, namely that what did turn out after that episode, you will remember it was the British Parliament initially that voted against such a reaction that led President Obama to drop the idea, but the threat of US military action did in fact lead to an agreement brokered by Russia for the Syrian.

In the wake of Alabama and Mississippi's continued observance of Confederate Memorial Day , Trevor Noah made it clear he is definitely not on board with celebrating the controversial holiday. During Wednesday's episode of The Daily Show , the host denounced the day which pays homage to Confederate soldiers who lost their lives in the Civil War as fked up on so many levels. First of all, the Confederacy fought the Civil War to defend slavery. Why would you honor that?, he said. Secondly, what are black people supposed to do on this holiday? Noah went on to explain that he has trouble wrapping his head around the idea that honoring the Confederacy can be observed in a non-racist way. I never understand this argument, he said. People go: Hey, back then they didnt know what they were doing.

The veteran director said he believed in higher beings as he prepared to release the sixth episode of the sci-fi horror series, "Alien: Covenant", next month. "I believe in superior beings. I think it is certainly likely. An expert I was talking to at NASA said to me, 'Have you ever looked in the sky at night? You mean to tell me we are it?' That's ridiculous. "The experts have now put a number on it having assessed what is out there. They say that there are between 100 and 200 entities that could be having a similar evolution to us right now. "So when you see a big thing in the sky, run for it," he joked. "Because they are a lot smarter than we are, and if you are stupid enough to challenge them you will be taken out in three seconds.

Stephen Colbert apparently isn't a fan of hearing about President Donald Trump pressing any sort of big red button . During the opening monologue of Wednesday's episode of The Late Show , the host nearly had a panic attack upon seeing a recent Associated Press report referencing Trump's continuous access to a button placed on the Resolute Desk. However, there was actually no need for alarm, as the story then revealed its only purpose was calling a butler to bring POTUS a Coke. Thank God, I was worried there. Hes just turning the Oval Office into an eight-year-olds drawing of a dream treehouse, he said before imagining what that would entail for Trump. There will be a button where I get a Coke wherever I want, a slide with a ball pit, and Bigfoot sleeps over and he teaches me karate.' Watch the full clip below.
