Peter Griffin will Fight Donald Trump in Family Guy Season 17

Family Guy will debut a two-part episode featuring Donald Trump in its upcoming Season 17.
According to the executive producers, the new season will see Peter going to work for Donald Trump in Washington “just to make things up on the local news.”` But when there’s an encounter with Meg (uh oh), “Peter and Trump have it out,” according to producer Rich Appel. “I won’t say who wins, you’ll have to tune in. It’s a giant chicken fight between the president and Peter all through Washington.”
That won’t be the only two-part episode in Season 17: The season premiere “involves Brian getting married,” according to producer Steve Callaghan. “It’s such a fun story with so many twists and turns that it ended up not being able to be told in one episode.”

Get Up Close and Personal with Star Trek's Mirror Universe Props and Costumes

When Star Trek: Discovery went to the “evil” Mirror Universe in its first season, it was a blast from the past — a concept first created for The Original Series when Spock got a goatee! And while this year’s Disco panel at San Diego Comic-Con was very much about looking forward to Season 2, including Captain Pike’s arrival on the USS Enterprise and a mystery surrounding Michael Burnham’s brother Spock, CBS All Access also had a great exhibit on site featuring many of the costumes, props and concept art that brought the Mirror Universe to life in Season 1.

We Saw 13 Minutes of Mayans MC Footage at Comic-Con 2018

At the Mayans MC panel, FX showed the first 13 minutes of the Sons of Anarchy spinoff series set to premiere on September 4.
In the footage, we were introduced to leading man Ezekiel ‘EZ’ Reyes, portrayed by JD Pardo (Human Target). Reyes is a prospect, aspiring to become a full-fledged member of the Southern California chapter of the Mayans Motorcycle Club.
Check out our interview with the creators of Mayans MC from Comic-Con 2018 below.
There’s a short flashback, featuring a teenage Reyes wearing a Stanford University sweatshirt and lovingly embracing his high school sweetheart. He’s a good kid, but something went wrong since he was just released from prison in the present day storyline. How all of this came to be is something we’ll have to wait and see when the series premieres.

Riverdale Season 3 Trailer Hints at Trouble for Betty and Jughead

After Riverdale’s Season 2 finale saw Archie being framed for a murder he didn’t commit, “Season 3 starts off with Archie on trial,” according to star KJ Apa, who was on hand with the rest of the cast and producers to give fans a sneak peek of the new season at Comic-Con on Sunday. “I guess we’ll see if he’s gonna go away or not.”
The Comic-Con panel kicked off with a Season 2 recap trailer and a sneak peek at Season 3, which you can watch below:
The biggest news from the panel came with the reveal that we’ll finally meet Jughead’s mother, Gladys, and sister, Jellybean, around episode 8 or 9 of Season 3, and that we can expect a flashback episode featuring the parents of Riverdale back when they were in high school. Instead of casting new actors for the roles of young Fred, Alice, F.P. and the rest of the gang, apparently the kids will be playing the younger versions of their parents for the episode.

Supernatural Gets Ominous Season 14 Sneak Peek at Comic-Con

Supernatural fans got a first look at Season 14 during the show’s Comic-Con panel on Sunday. While the footage from the Season 14 premiere won’t be available to watch online, the sneak peek followed on from the Season 13 finale’s cliffhanger, which saw the archangel Michael betraying his deal and keeping control of Dean (as well as giving him a suave, Peaky Blinders-esque makeover) following Lucifer’s defeat.
The scene from the first episode opens with a Muslim man engaging in morning prayer, before Michael appears in his room, telling him not to be afraid. The man asks if Michael is God, and he says “close.” After a somewhat hilarious guessing-game, he reveals that he’s Michael. The man asks why Michael is there, and Michael responds, “That is the question isn’t it? Why are we here?” He says he’s there to ask the man a question – the same question he’s been asking people across the world for weeks, from holy men to killers. “What do you want? If you could have anything, name it.”

Snapchat will shut down Snapcash, forfeiting to Venmo

Snapcash ended up as a way to pay adult performers for private content over Snapchat, not just a way to split bills with friends. But Snapchat will abandon the peer-to-peer payment space on August 30th. Code buried in Snapchat’s Android app includes a “Snapcash deprecation message” that displays “Snapcash will no longer be available after %s [date]”. Shutting down the feature will bring an end to Snapchat’s four-year partnership with Square to power the feature for sending people money.
Snapcash may have become more of a liability than a utility. With apps like Venmo, PayPal, Zelle, and Square Cash itself, there were plenty of other ways to pay back friends for drinks or Ubers, so Snapcash may have seen low legitimate usage. Meanwhile, a quick Twitter search for “Snapcash” surfaced plenty of offers of erotic content in exchange for payments through the feature. It may have been safer for Snapchat to ditch Snapcash than risk PR problems over its misuse.

TechCrunch tipster Ishan Agarwal provided the below screenshot of Snapchat’s code to TechCrunch. When presented with the code and asked if Snapcash would shut down, a Snapchat spokesperson confirmed to TechCrunch that it would, explaining: “Yes, we’re discontinuing the Snapcash feature as of August 30, 2018. Snapcash was our first product created in partnership with another company – Square. We’re thankful for all the Snapchatters who used Snapcash for the last four years and for Square’s partnership!” The spokesperson noted that users would be notified in-app and through the support site soon.

Snapcash gave Snapchat a way to get users to connect payment methods to the app. That’s increasingly important as the company aims to become a commerce platforms where you can shop without leaving the app. Having payment info on file is what makes buying things through Snapchat easier than the web and draws brands to use Snapchat storefronts.
We’ll see how Snapchat plans evolve its commerce strategy without this driver. Earlier this month, TechCrunch revealed that Snapchat’s code contained mentions of a project codenamed “eagle” that’s a camera search feature. It was designed to allow users to scan an object or barcode with their Snapchat camera and see product results in Amazon. But since our report, mentions of Amazon have disappeared from the code. It’s unclear what will happen in the future, but camera search could give Snapchat new utility and monetization options.
Snapcash won’t be a part of that future, though. Given Snapchat’s cost-cutting efforts including layoffs, its desperate need to attract and retain advertisers to hit revenue estimates its missed, and its persistent bad rap as a sexting app, it couldn’t afford to support unnecessary features or another scandal.
