Cher — To express her feelings about Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump’s election, eccentric singer Cher took to Twitter to talk about the candidate, refusing to use his real name and instead replacing it with a toilet emoji. She then went on to dancing bunny girls wagging tongue devil ghost monkey covering its eyes about panda french fries bullseye tractor telephone.

Cohen, Leonard — It’s nearly impossible for you to be alive right now and not been touched by a Leonard Cohen son in some way, which is why it’s very sad news today that the legendary musician, poet and songwriter has passed away at age 82. He is survived by five decades of truly amazing music.

Daily Show, The — Love The Daily Show? I mean, the middle-incarnation, the real one, after Kilborn and before Trevor Noah? Who doesn’t? So you’re sure to love Vanity Fair’s fascinating oral history excerpt of Jon Stewart’s transition from Craig Kilborn-Led TDS to what it became before Noah took over, with comments from Stewart, Colbert, Judd Apatow, Steve Carell and more.}

Kardashian, Dream — If you needed any silver lining on the wackiness of Election Day, look no further than the announcement of the birth of Dream Kardashian, the new daughter of Rob Kardashian and Blac Chyna. Because let’s face it, on a day where some were mourning the massive changes of our country to come, when an overweight sock magnate reality show character and a famous former rap video dancer/model can find love in this kooky mixed-up world, it truly IS an American Dream.

Lawrence, Jennifer — During a recent trip to Ellen to promote their new sci-fi film Passengers, the co-stars were asked to name their favorite body parts of the opposite sex, to which Lawrence answered “upper back” and “biceps.” Then the camera unnecessarily panned over to a leering Ken Bone, who cheekily looked into the camera and put a finger to his cheek, cooing “I know MY favorite part of Jennifer Lawrence.” (You can look that up yourself, folks.)

Mixtape, Hamilton — If you haven’t bought into the massive hype and listened to the Hamilton soundtrack yet, you really should. It remains one of the greatest hip hop albums of the last couple of years. Better yet, now creator Lin-Manuel Miranda is teasing the December 4 release of The Hamilton Mixtape, which sees artists like Sia, Busta Rhymes, Wiz Khalifa, Kelly Clarkson and more covering the concepts of known Hamilton numbers, and it’s going to really be something.

Shows, Worst TV — While there have been a lot of good TV shows (Hey Kentucky?) there have been a lot of terrible television shows (The Rick Pitino Show). And Rolling Stone somehow has found a way to compile the best. I won’t tell you the list — although, inexplicably, Northern Exposure is on there, which I’m not sure is one of the worst of all time — but it’s pretty arguable. Peep it below; it’s definitely cause for conversation; let me know what you think.

Street, Sesame — Because everything in our world has to be rebooted in some way or another, even beloved kids’ series Sesame Street isn’t immune as the franchise is about to be adapted again onto the big screen by director Shawn Levy, who directed the currently-in-theaters alien film Arrival and served as an executive producer on the trippy netflix horror series Stranger Things. Spoiler alert: at the end we find out that Mr. Snuffleupagus and Big Bird were the same person all along.
