at . Comments

Did you ever think you'd live to see the day Cubs fans count stop counting down the years since their team had won a world series??

More on that in a moment.

First up, Suits Season 6 has set its return date. There are six episodes remaining after the massive cliffhanger leaving Pearson Specter Litt in the hands of Harvey Specter and Louis Litt when Jessica Pearson left to pursue her heart and her passion.

Suits is already renewed for Season 7, so we know the story will last a while. What about the firm? USA Network dangled a little teaser out for excited fans to hold tight to the vest until the midseason premiere on Wednesday, January 25.

Today was a great day for Wyatt Russell (Black Mirror), who was just cast as the lead in AMC's upcoming drama, Lodge 49.

Written and created by Jim Gavin (Middle Men), Lodge 49 is a modern fable set in Long Beach and centered on Dud (Russell), a deadbeat but charming ex-surfer who joins a fraternal order hoping to reclaim the simple, happy lifestyle he lost when his father died.

Through the Lodge and his newfound connection with the other members, Dud will come to find the missing sense of purpose in his life and confront his deepest fears and greatest hopes.

"Dud is a layered, complex, and fascinating character who embodies hope and futility, comedy and tragedy, and the fragility of life," said Joel Stillerman, President of Original Programming and Development for AMC and SundanceTV. 

"Wyatt brings the nuance, warmth and depth to this loveable and iconic character, and we're thrilled to have him."

Cubs Win

Back to baseball!!!

You know that feeling of euphoria you had when the Cubs won the World Series? Because, let's face it, even if you're not a true Cubs' fan and were just watching for the love of the game, that was on helluva game.

That's the kind of seventh game of the World Series that people will be talking about for a very long time. Let's just hope, for the Cubs and their fans sakes it's not another 108 years.

In celebration, there will be a victory parade! You, most likely, will not be there. But WGN America is doing as much as they can to bring the experience to you! 

WGN America will be broadcasting the local level coverage from Tribune Broadcasting's WGN-TV in Chicago on WGN America, COMMERCIAL FREE so you can be a part of the festivities the best way possible. From your couch. Does it get any better than that??

That will be Friday, November 4. You have to stay tuned for the times, because they have yet to be announced.

And finally...Netflix is proud to introduce to you Count Olaf from Lemony Snicket's A Series of Unfortunate Events. They also suggest you avert your eyes...He's quite horrendous, after all...

Based on the internationally best-selling series of books by Lemony Snicket (aka Daniel Handler) and starring Emmy and Tony Award winner Neil Patrick Harris, Lemony Snicket's A Series of Unfortunate Events recounts the tragic tale of the Baudelaire orphans – Violet, Klaus, and Sunny – whose evil guardian Count Olaf (Harris) will stop at nothing to get his hands on their inheritance.

The siblings must outsmart Olaf at every turn, foiling his many devious plans and disguises, in order to discover clues to their parents’ mysterious death.

The eight-episode series is a Netflix original production, executive produced by Emmy Award winner Barry Sonnenfeld and Daniel Handler, and also stars Patrick Warburton (Lemony Snicket), Joan Cusack (Justice Strauss), Malina Weissman (Violet Baudelaire) and Louis Hynes (Klaus Baudelaire).
