Your astute observations and keen senses of deduction have made writing about The Masked Singer a treat for the past three seasons. And this week, you really came through in a big way.

Lowe, who owns the zoo, sent a video message to Los Angeles Dodgers player Justin Turner following an episode of a podcast hosted by Turner’s wife Kourtney.
“Netflix is adding one more episode. It will be on next week. They’re filming here tomorrow,” Lowe said in the video. “Take care, stay safe, and put your mask on.”
Netflix did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
“Tiger King” has been a wildly popular series for Netflix since it debuted on March 20. The docu-series is about the eccentric owners of wild tigers and how their world coincides with drug kingpins,

In an unexpected move on Saturday, ostracized and controversy-courting comedian Louis C.K. dropped a surprise new comedy special on his website. It’s his first produced special since his 2017 Netflix standup entry, though the comedian has quietly been making the rounds at comedy clubs, followed by a comeback tour in 2019. Hollywood all but severed ties with him when sexual-misconduct allegations began surfacing in the fall of 2017.
Titled “Sincerely C.K.,” the special, which is streaming and available for purchase on the comedian’s website for $7.99, is intended in C.K.’s words for “those who need to laugh.” In a newsletter update, the comedian did not address the elephant in the room, although he has brought up his blackened reputation in subsequent stand-up gigs. He did, however, express that the special is intended to bring joy into people’s lives during a time of global crisis, when everyone’s on quarantine.
Director Jon M. Chu promises “In the Heights” will make its theatrical debut. Exactly when, of course, is another question as the coronavirus pandemic prompted Warner Bros. to hit the “pause” button on the film’s scheduled June 26 release indefinitely. Screenings of early cuts of the film had already begun when the pandemic broke.
“I hate the word ‘indefinitely’ because it’s sort of open-ended. We’re gonna have a date. It’s just about if we choose a date now, we’d probably have to shift it later. So, we’re not going to commit to one now,” Chu said on the “Variety After-Show.
Dozens of TV shows now airing will screech to a halt in the weeks to come, ahead of their planned season finales. What reveals, twists and entanglements do you hope nonetheless transpire before your favorites head for an early, pandemic-dictated hiatus?
Some of the impacted shows might only leave one or two episodes “on the table,” while others will see their seasons come up a few episodes short, or even more. (You can find details in TVLine’s Coronavirus Impact gallery.) So keep that in mind when wishing for something to happen before the ersatz finale arrives.

Has it really been eight years since we left that magical little town in North Carolina where all your dreams can come true if you just smolder hard enough? We’re talking, of course, about One Tree Hill, the WB/CW teen drama that made household names out of young actors like Chad Michael Murray and Sophia Bush — and taught some of us everything we know about basketball.
The “Tiger King” phenomenon is not over yet.
Netflix is releasing an extra episode of the hit docu-series next week, according to zoo owner Jeff Lowe from the show. He revealed the details about a new episode in a Cameo video posted on Twitter by Justin Turner of the Los Angeles Dodgers.
“Netflix is adding one more episode. It will be on next week. They’re filming here tomorrow,” Lowe said in the video.
So our friend @christie_dish listened to the podcast, @HoldingKourt and after last weeks episode decided to send us this!!!
Heads up, Tiger King fans: We haven’t seen the last of Joe Exotic.
According to Jeff Lowe, one of the show’s infamous zoo owners, Netflix is adding one more episode of the docuseries that took the Internet by storm. The new episode will hit the streamer next week, said the swinger-turned-big cat owner, who revealed the news in a Cameo video posted on Twitter by the Los Angeles Dodgers’ third baseman Justin Turner.
For Daniel Levy, who created “Schitt’s Creek” with his father, Eugene Levy, the show meant six seasons of inventing a world he would want to live in, one guided by compassion and love. Along the way, “Schitt’s Creek” has become part of the zeitgeist, earned four Emmy nominations and has launched Levy as a new voice in the entertainment industry. Its series finale airs on April 7 on Pop TV.
In the latest TV ratings, CBS’ Hawaii Five-0 wrapped its 10-year run with 9.35 million total viewers — up 11 percent from last week to mark its largest audience since Jan. 12, 2018 — and a 0.9 demo rating, holding steady to match its season high.
Bookending the island drama’s swan song, MacGyver (7.1 mil/0.8) delivered its largest audience in more than two years and held onto last week’s season high in the demo, while Blue Bloods (8.8 mil/0.7) copped its best audience in 14 months and was steady in the demo.

While we’re all inside marathon-watching television until our eyeballs bleed and the bedsores take hold, it’s fun to imagine what certain shows might look like in the time of the coronavirus. This week, Vulture did just that, polling 37 TV writers on what their characters in series new and old might do in a pandemic.
The lineup includes Tina Fay and Mike Schur, writers from “Curb Your Enthusiasm,” “Riverdale,” “Friday Night Lights,” “Frasier,” “Parks and Recreation,” “Brooklyn Nine-Nine,” “One Day at Time,” “You,” and many more of your at-home comfort favorites. The standout, however, and the one that feels most inherent to the series’ established DNA, is executive producer and showrunner David Mandel’s spec take on what the world of “Veep” might look like today, and how perennially incompetent V.P. turned Potus Selina Meyer would actually… pull it off and save the day?.

Imagine delivering a career-defining performance in a language you don’t even speak. That was the challenge presented to Shira Haas, the Israeli actress whose galvanizing turn propels “Unorthodox,” a four-part Netflix limited series about a young woman who leaves her Hasidic community behind.
As the courageous lead character Esty, who abandons everything she knows in her search for self-actualization, Haas cycles through many different phases of her character’s journey, from childhood to marriage to her new life in Berlin. She embodies these transformations in Yiddish and English — neither one is her native Hebrew tongue — with poise, nuance, and specificity, delivering a tour de force that makes “Unorthodox” entirely gripping from start to finish.

Friday’s episode of RuPaul’s Drag Race was a long time coming — for several reasons. Not only did it begin with Snatch Game, easily the show’s most popular recurring challenge, but it also ended with a long-awaited battle between two rival queens.
Spoiler alert: Those queens were Aiden Zhane and Brita, and their conflict started way before they hit the runway. While reacting to Nicky Doll’s elimination in the workroom, Brita said she was “shook” to find herself in the bottom, then asked how Aiden managed to be safe when the two were basically partners in the Gay’s Anatomy challenge.
“How to Get Away with Murder” star Viola Davis promises fans will enjoy a killer final batch of episodes, teasing that the story will have a “great ending,” even if it’s not a traditionally “happy” one.
“I don’t know if I’m into happy endings, I’m into great endings. I think happy endings sometimes can be a manipulation to give the audience what they want, but in a way that’s pat; in a way that maybe is not a realistic trajectory for the character. But I think this is gonna end exactly the way it should,
The one-hour drama centered on a career lawman who steps into the role of acting sheriff of Los Angeles County following the death of the current sheriff. Despite being better suited to rounding up criminals than navigating the politics of a staff meeting at the station, he finds himself in charge of 10,000 deputies. The show hailed from writer Will Beall and director David Ayer, who served as executive producers alongside Chris Long for Cedar Park.
The series debuted to a decent audience shortly after the new year,

Joseph Maldonado-Passage, aka Joe Exotic, isn’t done with his on-camera attention just yet.
The subject of Netflix’s true crime docuseries “Tiger King: Murder, Mayhem and Madness” has become an overnight celebrity since the show premiered last month. Based on the platform’s Top 10 most popular section, “Tiger King” has now reigned as the most watched program on Netflix for 12 consecutive days.
