Evenin’! This is Sean McNulty (connect with me on LinkedIn here if ya like), and here’s the Hollywood + Media news to know on SUNDAY Nov. 12, 2023.
Where I gotta say, it’s kinda nice to have my Sunday afternoons back.
I enjoyed taking a nice late afternoon walk in Central Park for the sunset today… in lieu of watching the GIANTS first half of “football” against DALLAS (final score: 49-17, and it wasn’t even that close).
So in lieu of another GIANTS losing gif, here’s a greeting card from late autumn in NYC.
ALSO: Travis Kelce hopped down to Buenos Aires this weekend for the TSwift concert - always nice when your boyfriend returns the favor. Can’t wait to see what the ratings bump is.
