Charlie Rose and Tavis Smiley Sexual Harassment Scandals Have Lead to ‘Systematic Change’ at PBS
In the wake of suspending both Charlie Rose and Tavis Smiley for sexual misconduct, PBS is enacting changes to help prevent similar misconduct in the future.

“It’s important we ensure that this isn’t just a moment and that we move on but we are looking into ways to create systematic change,” PBS President and CEO Paula Kerger said at the Television Critics Association press tour on Tuesday.

Kerger noted the bolstering of the network’s anti-harassment efforts, even though many of them had already existed, such as PBS’ whistleblower line, where workplace misconduct can be addressed. These calls “go directly to our board, not to management,” per Kerger. The network’s harassment policies, which had also been in place some months before the #MeToo movement started, requires that employees go through training once a year, with managers going through a second level of training.

The Resident Review: Dark Fox Drama Is the Cure for Medical-Show Fatigue

There’s a scene in the pilot of Fox’s new medical drama The Resident where an idealistic young intern relentlessly pounds on the chest of a dying drug addict, eventually getting her heart beating again. Most medical dramas would stop right there , cue up a triumphant indie-pop song on the soundtrack and cut to commercial. But here, the intern’s supervisor takes him aside and tells him that even though his patient’s heart is beating, she’s been without oxygen for 26 minutes and is technically brain-dead. It’s a crushing punch to the gut. He saved her for nothing.

It terrified us with its bleak vision of what America could become in Season 1 — and swept the Emmys and Golden Globes in the process. Now, Hulu’s searing adaptation of Margaret Atwood’s iconic dystopian novel is on the verge of continuing the story beyond the original ending of the book, to the toughest reaches of this brutal world.

Season 2, premiering this April, brings with it the return of Offred (Emmy and Golden Globe winner Elisabeth Moss) and (per the official Hulu summary) “her ongoing fight to free her future child from the dystopian horrors of Gilead. ‘Gilead is within you’ is a favorite saying of Aunt Lydia.

Katie Couric Admits She Felt ‘Borderline Bullied’ Into Having To Make A Statement on Matt Lauer’s ‘Today’ Exit
Katie Couric wasn’t ready to discuss what happened with Matt Lauer and “Today” until now, and partly finally spoke to People magazine this weekend because she knew she might be asked the question on Saturday at the Television Critics Association press tour.

“Some people have pressured, borderline bullied me to try to talk about this,” she told IndieWire. “We don’t give people a chance to think, and we expect and demand an instantaneous reaction to anything that goes on. I think I’ve always been well served by stepping back, thinking, trying to comprehend a situation and speaking when I’m ready.”

Beyond her brief statement to People magazine, Couric said she’s “been doing a lot of thinking, a lot of talking with former colleagues and a lot of writing about this. I’ll probably have more to say about it in the future. Yes, it’s

YouTube Puts Logan Paul’s Future Projects On Hold, But Doesn’t Cut Ties With Creator

YouTube Puts Logan Paul’s Future Projects On Hold, But Doesn’t Cut Ties With Creator
Logan Paul’s YouTube Originals projects are on “indefinite hold,” YouTube executives confirmed at the Television Critics Association press tour Saturday — but they would not say that the platform had cut ties with him permanently and did not rule out working with him in the future.

YouTube chief business officer Robert Kyncl and head of original programming Susanne Daniels told reporters that when incidents arise involving YouTube talent, what’s most important is to “protect the community” of YouTube creators, advertisers, and viewers.

“We believe [Paul] made unfortunate missteps,” Kyncl told reporters. “Actions should speak louder than words and Logan has the opportunity to prove that.”

After uploading a tone-deaf and offensive video shot in Japan’s “suicide forest” last month, Paul’s appearances in the upcoming new season of the YouTube Originals series “Foursome” and a sequel to the 2016 film “The Thinning” were canceled. Meanwhile, the YouTube star has taken
