Dave Chappelle’s New Netflix Special “Equanimity” Gets a Premiere Date
Back in March, Dave Chapelle made his return to television (or at least, streaming television) after 10 years with two Netflix stand-up specials. Both "The Age of Spin" and "Deep in the Heart of Texas" premiered on the same day, giving fans two different shades of his comedy. But the current events humor of "Spin" alongside the more personal stories of "Texas" combined into a worthy comeback for the comedian, which Evan Valentine reviewed last year saying: "Dave Chappelle is back, rising like a phoenix from the ashes of his self imposed exile, with plenty of insight to share." …

Steve Ritchie is the guy that yells “Finish Him!” in Mortal Kombat. Yep, if you were expecting some big, muscular, hulking, demonic-looking guy decked out in leather and chains you might want to stop reading.

But Ritchie is the guy responsible for the husky, overwhelming voice that announces the matches, calls for the finishing maneuver, and pretty much everything in the original Mortal Kombat games.

‘Grey’s Anatomy’ vs. ‘Young Sheldon’ vs. NFL Football: Everyone’s A Winner in Thursday Night Smackdown — Ratings Watch

‘Grey’s Anatomy’ vs. ‘Young Sheldon’ vs. NFL Football: Everyone’s A Winner in Thursday Night Smackdown — Ratings Watch
It turns out there’s enough to go around ratings-wise on Thursday night. NBC has taken hold of the Thursday Night Football package, which it shares with CBS (both of whom simulcast with NFL Network), and its fortunes on the night have grown substantially. Now with two nights of NFL, plus staples like “This Is Us” and “The Voice,” NBC easily won the week ending November 12 in adults 18-49, and scored its first total viewers victory of the season.

But on Thursday nights, ABC and CBS also have reason to crow in the 8 p.m. hour: “Grey’s Anatomy,” which just hit its 300th episode, remains a potent force. And “Young Sheldon” is developing into a new hit behind “The Big Bang Theory.” (Also in the hour, Fox’s “Gotham” and The CW’s “Supernatural” also perform relatively respectably, although not nearly at the same level).
