Schitt’s Creek made it to TV Guide’s Best Shows of the Decade list
Everyone’s favourite heartwarming sitcom, Schitt’s Creek, has had a big year. Not only did it get nominated for four Emmy Awards this year, but it also made it to TV Guide’s list of the 25 Best Shows of the Decade. “Many consider the mid-to-late 2000s to be a golden age of comedy thanks to the likes of The Office, Parks and Recreation, and 30 Rock, but Schitt’s Creek can stand on its own next to those giants,” reads the list. Speaking of the show, Pop TV just announced the dates for its “Visit Schitt’s Creek” pop-up events in New York and LA, which will “give fans the chance to experience parts of the series’ most iconic sets this holiday season, along with interactive photo moments, access to limited merchandise and more.” Fingers crossed that a Canadian pop-up will be announced next…

The former singer revealed that her mother encouraged her to have a Plan B ready just in case her musical career never took off. “My mum actually made me qualify as a dance teacher after I finished theatre school because she said it was always good to have something to fall back on,” Beckham told Burke. Upcoming guests on Burke’s podcast include American comedian Tig Notaro, British model Adwoa Aboah and Irish musician Hozier.

It’s here. Finally. ‘As Me with Sinéad’ launches today and the first two episodes are available to listen to now on Apple, Stitcher, Spotify and wherever you get your podcasts. . . For the first episode, I had the great privilege of sitting on a sofa talking about the ways in which the Spice Girls gave us permission to be ourselves, being bullied in the playground at school, learning to love yourself and your body and the value of kindness with @victoriabeckham. It’s not easy to be vulnerable and I’m so grateful to Victoria for sharing so much of herself. Teenage me wouldn’t believe this moment. . .
