ABOVE: Super fly guy.
DEADLINE: Love, Victor — a Love, Simon spin-off series starring Michael Cimino on Disney+ — is moving to Hulu for Season 2. The reasoning seems to be that Disney+ is firming up as family-friendly, and the themes covered by Love, Victor (alcohol use, marital discord, sex) make the Mouse scared.
EXTRATV: Weinstein guilty on two out of five counts, but not on the most serious charges. One of his accusers calls the verdict “justice”, and points out that while he skates on some charges, he has been found guilty of harming women and will do time. He also has an L.A. trial to face.

OMG.BLOG! (WORK UNFRIENDLY): Another German Big Brother boner moment.
TRUE CRIME DAILY: Opera star Domingo accused of sexual harassment or other inappropriate behavior by 27 people. If prosecutors are Seinfeld fans, he should blame the other guy.
THE RANDY REPORT: Jussie Smollett pleads not guilty. Gotta give it up for him — he stays in lack of character.
NYT: Trump demands that liberal Justices Ruth Bader Ginsburg and Sonia Sotomayor recuse themselves from all cases involving him. I mean, what about Clarence Thomas with his activist wife Ginny?
KENNETH IN THE (212): If you prefer your butts muscled, your Speedos packed.
JOE.MY.GOD.: Bloomberg — not my guy, so not my guy — is one of many sounding the alarm that putting Sanders on top of the ticket will dash our hopes for winning the White House, winning back the Senate, and may even lose us the House. This is something sobering to consider — Trump with carte blanche. NOBODY knows if this is correct, but it's not crazy talk, and I'm not inclined to listen to Sanders supporters
SALON: ... or is it all about Russia-sown chaos and infighting?
AP: Buttigieg has zero chance of winning the nomination this time, and zero chance of being anyone's veep, but this piece on black voters vs. gay candidates is interesting — mostly because while there still exists this feeling that black people are more homophobic than white people (what level is considered normal homophobia, right?), the percentages are tiny. A few percent more homophobic. Enough to swing a close election, yes, but the Democratic primary isn't that close, as it pertains to Mayor Pete, and not enough to warrant the pervasive belief that black people are much, much more homophobic than white people.
WOW: RIP to artist James Brown and his wife, who died in a tragic car accident.
TOWLEROAD: If you're one of those queens who is tired of Billy Porter (they exist), cool your jets — One Million Moms (really just one mom) is steaming-mad that he dared to appear on Sesame Street, so let's focus our enmity energies appropriately.
