‘Rick and Morty’ Creator on the Szechuan Sauce Catastrophe: ‘I Wouldn’t Wish That Show’s Fans on Any Fast-Food Restaurant’
“Rick and Morty” fans are known to be, well, fanatical in their devotion to the animated series created by Dan Harmon. Just ask the McDonald’s employees who had to put up with them last year when, due to a gag on the show that went too far, the fast-food chain brought back its Szechuan Sauce for a limited time. Speaking to Vulture from the Tribeca Film Festival, Harmon denied the rumors that he got a cut of those sales — and put some of his own fans on blast for their behavior.

“It’s weird to get mugged by McDonald’s. It’s kind of an honor,” he said in regards to the fact that no one from the show was informed of the promotion, which was not-so-subtly a response to the show featuring said dipping sauce. As for his devotees’ insane response, Harmon said he “wouldn’t wish that show

The Voice Final Four Predictions: Coach [Spoiler] Is Poised for Another Win
While the debate over whether Season 14’s Top 12 is awesome or awful continues to rage in the comments sections that follow TVLine’s recaps of The Voice, I’m going to go out on a limb and predict which singers will make the Final Four.

Mind you, it’s a pretty sturdy limb. Since my prognostication is primarily based on the results of our polls — and last season, you were all about eventual winner Chloe Kohanski — I actually feel pretty confident in suggesting that Alicia Keys is headed for another victory: She has two of the four contestants among my — in a way,
