NBC renews the Will & Grace revival for Season 3
Technically, Will & Grace has been picked up for an 11th season to run in the 2019-2020 season. But NBC's official announcement, made at PaleyFest, emphasized that it's a "Season Three" pickup. NBC also announced that Season 2 will expand from 16 to 18 episodes. This is the second time that NBC has given the Will & Grace revival an early renewal, likely due to the busy schedules of the cast. Season 2 of the revival was ordered nearly two months before Season 1 premiered. Will & Grace has averaged about 9.8 million viewers so far this season.

For the People's Britt Robertson: Bachelor Arie Luyendyk Jr. was "kind of like a jerkface" when I met him
“I was hoping he would tell me who he chooses and he did not," Robertson tells The Associated Press of meeting Arie, her fellow ABC star. "Then he was kind of like a jerkface, I’m not gonna lie...He acted like taking a picture with me was just the most painful thing he’s ever done. And I’m literally thinking to myself, ‘bro this is what you signed up for; you’re not an actor, you’re not a director, you’re not creative. You’re here for us to take photos and make fun of you. That’s all you are: a show pony. Marry some girl and make us happy.’”
