Caffeine – TV News – November 13th Edition

Like many of you, I’m sure, I can’t say I’m particularly interested in TV news this week, but I suppose life goes on and some of you may want a distraction, so let’s see what we have.

But speaking of current events: SVU‘s Trump-inspired episode has been delayed again. (The fact that there is an episode based on accusations against the President Elect is just completely surreal and depressing, honestly.)
