You NFL fans out there might have tried adjusting your television sets on Oct. 29, 2023, as the Tennessee Titans wore uniforms in the colors of their predecessors, the Houston Oilers, in a nod to the team’s beginnings.

'Great British Bake Off' Swears Off Country-Themed Episodes After 'Mexican Week' Backlash

The Great British Bake Off is going back to basics — and ditching its “national themes” — a year after angering viewers with a disastrous “Mexican Week” episode. “We didn’t want to offend anyone but the world has changed and the joke fell flat, executive producer Kieran Smith told The Guardian in an interview about the upcoming 14th season. “We’re not doing any national themes this year.”

Based on the bestselling book by Casey McQuiston, the movie stars Taylor Zakhar Perez as American first son Alex Claremont-Diaz and Nicholas Galitzine as U.K. royal Prince Henry, two men whose long-running feud boils over in spectacular fashion at a royal event and “sparks something deeper than they ever expected.” And once you’re done swooning over that transatlantic tale, check out even more LGBTQ+ rom-coms…
