    Well, it finally happened. Not only will Apu be recast, but so will every other non-white character currently played by a white person, including Carl, Lou, Dr. Hibbert, etc.

    Mike Henry also announced he's no longer playing Cleveland.

    So Phil can't voice Samurai Jack now, right? Sort of vaguely curious who is allowed to voice what now.

    Or, ideally, a new generation of nonwhite actors get the opportunity to do voice work.

    Thank you to that article for reminding me how shittily the show responded to "The problem With Apu"
    "Something that started decades ago and was applauded and inoffensive is now politically incorrect," Lisa Simpson says in an episode while her mother, Marge, reads a children's book that has been updated to remove stereotypical references.

    Lisa then looks at a framed picture of Apu on her nightstand.

    "Some things will be dealt with at a later date," Marge tells her.

    "If at all," Lisa responds.

    Carpy on

    Everything except Duncanville will premiere with new episodes Sept. 27, right on schedule.

    Near as I can tell that's the only new episodic network stuff coming this fall that wasn't swiped from foreign markets.

    Not quite, Fox also has 3 new fall shows, "Cosmos: Possible Worlds", "Filthy Rich", and "neXt", all of which hail from Twentieth Century Fox and were heldover. "LA's Finest", while not new is a streaming exclusive, and considering the 7% on Rotten Tomatoes, we can easily conclude that Sony sold network rights to the show to Fox for extremely cheap.

    Just gotta be up to date on TV news and read them. I read DEADLINE, Hollywood Reporter, and Variety almost daily. Also, Reddit's r/television keeps me up to date.
