[RT News, 6/11/2019] When ya gotta go ... A 16-year-old driver was pulled over by the Royal Cana- dian Mounted Police in Mani- toba, Canada, on June 6 after being clocked driving 105 mph, according to Fox News. The teenager was driving a Chevrolet Camaro, but it wasn't the muscle car that made him go so fast, he said. He told police he had just eaten hot chicken wings and re- ally needed to use the bathroom. Officers were unmoved, how- ever, tweeting, "Absolutely #no- excuses for that kind of speed." The teen was fined and is likely to have his license suspended. [Fox News, 6/9/2019] News you can use Equality got a boost in Argen- tina in June when that country's National Appeal Court ordered a man to pay his ex-wife 8 million pesos (about $178,000) for 27 years of housework. Newsweek reported Judge Victoria Fama reasoned that the wife, who holds a degree in economics, put her career aside for the entirety of their marriage to keep house and raise children, and by the time her husband left her in 2009, she was too old to compete in the job market. "The economic depen- dence of wives on their husbands is one of the central mechanisms through which women are sub- ordinated in society," the judge stated. Meanwhile, the husband was living "a good life."

Question: Now that CBS has debuted "e Good Fight's" first season on the mothership, do you think they'll re-air all the seasons on CBS, since CBS All Access is at least three seasons or years ahead? We have enough streaming op- tions and adding another for just one show is not in the cards. — Ryan Matt Roush: You're far from the only one who's aggravated by CBS putting its best and most promotable prop- erties ("e Good Fight," "Star Trek: Discovery," the "Twilight Zone" re- boot) behind a paywall while deliver- ing weak reboots or worse to its loyal broadcast audience. But that's the direction things are going through- out the industry. And while I'd like to promise that CBS will treat its viewers to future seasons of "e Good Fight," which is terrific, especially in its uned- ited form, this seems to me more like a stunt to get the show some added ex- posure this year during the time when TV Academy members are making their Emmy nomination picks. It's also possible the network is dangling the first season of "e Good Fight" to its mainstream viewers as an enticement and advertisement for the streaming service, but its exclusivity to CBS All Access is why the series exists at all. So while it's always possible CBS could roll out the other seasons in future summers, the real goal with the series is to get more people inside the All Ac- cess tent. To submit questions to TV Critic Matt Roush, go to tvinsider.com. by Damian Holbrook Cheers to "Younger" for getting even better with age. With Liza and Charles (Sutton Foster and Peter Hermann) go- ing public as a couple, Kelsey (Hilary Duff ) rising in the corporate ranks and Josh (Nico Tortorella) facing potential fatherhood, this once frothy TV Land rom-com has grown into a sophisticated treat you should give yourself regularly. Jeers to "e Handmaid's Tale" for telling the same old story. As great as the show's performers are — and they are amazing — with June (Elisabeth Moss) stuck in another male-domi- nated house while trying to save her child, Season 3 feels like it's spinning the wheels more than moving the characters forward.
