1. Drew Barrymore and Bill Maher pause returns after strike backlash

Strike that. Days after doubling down on her decision to bring back her talk show amid the writers strike, Drew Barrymore has changed her mind. She announced on Instagram she has “listened to everyone” and will “pause the show’s premiere until the strike is over.” Barrymore had released an apology video on Friday after being accused of being a scab for proceeding with the show without her WGA writers, though at that time, she still planned to return to the airwaves. “We said it wasn’t too late to do the right thing, and we meant it,” writer David Slack posted on X, formerly Twitter. “Thank you, @DrewBarrymore for standing with us.” Other talk shows, including “The Jennifer Hudson Show” and “The Talk,” followed Barrymore’s lead and paused their premieres. Bill Maher also delayed the return of HBO’s “Real Time” “for now” in hopes the writers and studios can “finally” reach a deal soon. Instagram

2. Russell Brand denies sexual assault allegations

Russell Brand took to social media on Friday to announce he would soon be accused of “very serious allegations that I absolutely refute.” Sure enough, a joint investigation by The Sunday Times, The Times and Channel 4 Dispatches revealed that four women have accused the comedian of sexual assaults between 2006 and 2013, and “others have made a range of accusations about Brand’s controlling, abusive and predatory behavior.” One of the accusers was 16 at the time. The fallout has been swift, as Brand has already been dropped by his agent, while his book deal was also paused and his tour dates postponed. Meanwhile, Deadline reported that Brand was dropped from the show “Roast Battle” in 2018 after “he was repeatedly accused of being a ‘sexual predator’ during the recording of the show.” In his video released ahead of the allegations, Brand maintained that during his “time of promiscuity,” the “relationships I had were absolutely always consensual.” The Times
