Remember “Tiger King” star Carole Baskin and her “missing” husband Don Lewis?  Some people think Carole murdered him and fed him to her tigers. Well, it turns out he might still be alive.  But the source is Carole herself, so take it with a grain of salt.  What’s crazy is that Carole herself made this claim in 2021, and somehow, everybody in the media missed it. On a British talk show, Carole claimed that Homeland Security got in touch with her and told her that Don was alive and well in Costa Rica.  (???) She added, quote, “I didn’t think he was capable of supporting himself.  He took about a million dollars down to Costa Rica, I had agreed to let him do that so he could prove to himself that he could make a living.” For the record, there’s no proof whatsoever that any of this is true (Cosmopolitan)

Stephen A. Smith is speaking out and apologizing after he made comments about Rihanna‘s upcoming performance at the Super Bowl. During an appearance on Sherri, the ESPN commentator was asked by host Sherri Shepherd about the upcoming halftime performance and if he was excited by Rihanna being the headliner. THIS IS WHAT HE SAID: “I don’t want to say I’m not excited, she’s fantastic, that’s not where I’m going with this,” he started out, before adding, “Ladies and gentlemen, she’s a lot of things, she’s spectacular actually — and congratulations on the new mama hood — there’s one thing she’s not, she ain’t Beyoncé.”

His comments have obviously caught heat with Rihanna‘s fans, and they proceeded to call him out about them on social media. Following his appearance, more social media comments came in and prompted Stephen to issue an apology over what he said. “I’m gonna own it. I know what y’all trying to do, but I’m gonna own it because I get paid to speak for a living, so I need to be more careful,” he shared in a video apology on Twitter. “I want Rihanna to know, you’re a superstar, you’re sensational, you’re spectacular, you’re no joke and you are a worthy person to be doing the Super Bowl halftime show.”

Speaking of sweet trailers: Harrison Ford is going from the homestead to the therapist’s chair. The 1923 star co-headlines Apple TV+’s upcoming comedy, Shrinking, opposite Jason Segel, who plays Jimmy Laird, a grieving therapist who suddenly breaks all the rules and tells his clients what he really thinks about their respective situations — prompting them to make big changes to their lives, as well as his own. In the new three-minute trailer released Wednesday, Ford portrays Dr. Paul Rhodes, a mentor figure who expresses concern over Jimmy’s well-being following the death of his wife. As Jimmy struggles to come to terms with his wife’s death, Dr. Rhodes tells him he’s been “numbing” himself over his loss.  But at some point during his grieving process, Jimmy reaches a boiling point and breaks during a therapy session with a client, who’s stunned by his sudden outburst after he tells her that any kind of hope she has over her “emotionally abusive” husband intending on improving himself is a sham. “He’s not working on it. He doesn’t intend to. Just leave him,” Jimmy blurts out. When she responds with a simple, “OK,” it gives him the clarity to move forward in this new, as he calls it, “dirtier” direction of hard-hitting truths.

Shrinking premieres with its first two episodes Friday, Jan. 27 on Apple TV+.

Craig Ferguson is making his way back to late night! The 60-year-old comedian and Sony Pictures Television have plans to launch a 30-minute syndicated talk show this fall called Channel Surf With Craig Ferguson. So far, no network or premiere date for the show has been announced, as it is still being shopped around.  The Scottish comedian filmed a pilot for Channel Surf in the United Kingdom, which will go out to potential buyers in Los Angeles this week.   According to a press release, Channel Surf will feature Ferguson and his friends reviewing shocking, hilarious and surprising moments from weekly television programs. “With Ferguson’s unmatched comedic talent, his take on the nation’s greatest TV shows will have viewers laughing, crying and probably throwing a remote at their own televisions,” the release states.   As for why Ferguson wants to return to TV, he says in a statement, “I wanted to do Channel Surf because I think television is ready for the return of the silly, funny, occasional lip-synching puppet format. Also, it’s a TV show which contains clips of questionable moments from other TV shows thus creating a spectacular visual turducken of stupid.”
