Many People Prefer to Watch TV with their Dogs Instead of their Family, a New Study Finds

Watching a show without your dog can be “ruff.”

A new report by Rover.com found that as Americans increased their TV and streaming habits amid the pandemic, they have done so with a furry friend by their side. 

Per the report, 57% of dog parents admitted to waiting for their dog to get into the room before watching a show. 

Now, that isn’t entirely surprising because if you are a dog owner, you know dogs are great watching buddies… unless you have a dog like mine who barks at any animal on the screen. That makes things a bit more difficult, but still proves that he’s attentive! 

The report found that 78% of Americans said they watch TV with their dogs very often or always. 

Surprisingly, dogs were ranked #1 when asked who people prefer to chill out and watch TV with, with 40% of parents saying they’d choose their dog over a partner, friends, or even kids. And that’s because a majority of pet parents believe their pups are actively watching or reacting to what’s happening on the screen. (See my point above about my dog barking at animals on the screen!) 

To make the binge-watching experience that much better for their pets, 70% have admitted to accommodating their pup by allowing them on the couch, giving them blankets, and even moving over so the dog is comfortable. 

60% of pet parents even believe their dog has a favorite TV show, which would explain why 80% of dog parents admit to leaving their TV on for dogs when they’re not home. 

The most popular genres? Comedy and action, which makes sense – after a long day of lounging and taking walks, Fido needs a good laugh or to get invested in a dramatic car chase! 

During such uncertain times, there’s definitely comfort in knowing that you always have a TV buddy by your side! 

And let’s be honest… is there anything your dog isn’t doing with you these days?

When Does 'Firefly Lane' Season 2 Come Out?

The wait is almost over! 

Netflix is allowing fans to reunite with the Firefly Lane girls on December 2, 2022!

FireFly Lane Season 2 Part 1 will debut on Friday at 12 a.m. PT (3 a.m ET and 2 a.m. CT) on the streaming service, and while that may be very late in the night, the good thing is you’ll have all weekend to catch up with Tully (Katherine Heigl) and Kate (Sarah Chalke). 

 

Why Is Kate Mad at Tully at the End of Firefly Lane Season 1?

The biggest question on everyone’s mind is why is Kate so mad at Tully. At the end of the first season, it’s revealed that Kate’s father, Bud, died, but when her best friend Tully arrives at the church, Kate tells her that she has “some nerve showing up here.” Season 2 Part 1 will hopefully answer what led to the rift between Kate and Tully in 2004/2005.

 

How Many Episodes in Firefly Lane Season 2 Part 1?

The season will have a total of nine episodes. 

Part 2 of the season is set to arrive sometime in 2023 with episodes 10 through 16. 

 

Who Died on Firefly Lane Season 1?

Bud, Kate’s father, passed away in the first season. Kate and Tully are at his funeral when it’s revealed that they are not on speaking terms anymore despite a decades-long friendship.

 

Firefly Lane Season 2 Cast

The key cast of the upcoming second season includes:

  • Katherine Heigl – Tully Hart
  • Sarah Chalke – Kate Mularkey
  • Ali Skovbye – ’70s Tully Hart
  • Roan Curtis – ’70s Kate Mularkey
  • Ben Lawson – Johnny Ryan
  • Beau Garrett – Cloud/Dorothy Hart
  • Yael Yurman – Marah
  • India de Beaufort – Charlotte/Charlie
  • Greg Germann – Benedict Binswagner
  • Jolene Purdy – Justine Jordan
  • Ignacio Serricchio – Danny Diaz

 

Firefly Lane Season 2 Synopsis

What could possibly have ended the tight-knit thirty year friendship of Tully and Kate, our “Firefly Lane Girls Forever?” We’ll learn the answer this season — but first — Kate grapples with the painful aftermath of Johnny’s ill-fated trip to Iraq, while Tully faces a lawsuit after walking away from her talk show, and must start her career over from the bottom. This leads her to search for answers about who she is and where she comes from — including a quest to find the father she never met, against the wishes of her secretive hippie mother, Cloud. In the ’80s, we see Kate and Johnny first fall in love, creating more than a little drama in the newsroom where they work, as Tully’s career rises and she spars (and flirts!) with cocky sportscaster Danny Diaz. She just might have met her match — that is, if they can stop arguing for five minutes. While in the ’70s, teenage Kate and Tully struggle to keep their friendship together as Cloud goes to jail for dealing drugs and Tully goes to live with her grandmother, far away from Firefly Lane. As the girls face the tumult of high school apart, they know the one thing they really need is each other.

‘Emily in Paris’ Season 3—Premiere Date and Trailer

When Is Season 3 of Emily in Paris Coming Out?

Netflix is giving Emily in Paris fans the best holiday gift of all—a brand new season. 

The third season of the Paris-set dramedy is set to premiere on Wednesday, December 21. 

New shows are typically released globally at 12:00 a.m. Pacific Time. 

Fans can also unwrap an early gift as the streamer just dropped the trailer for the new season, which reveals Emily Cooper (Lily Collins) is pulling double-duty in both her professional and personal life.

Her indecision has left her in a bit of a mess, as she’s now juggling two jobs—her old gig with Madeline (Kate Walsh) and a gig at Sylvie’s new agency (Philippine Leroy-Beaulieu). On top of it, her heart is also being pulled in two different directions as she’s torn between chef Gabriel (Lucas Bravo) and businessman Brit Alfie (Lucien Laviscount). 

And based on the 2-minute trailer, her decisions will have plenty of consequences. 

But don’t think that Emily isn’t carving out time for prioritizing life, as Parisians do, as she informs her gal pal Mindy (Ashley Park) that she’s all about “life” right now.

The work-life balance includes stunning vacations (and a balloon ride),  incredible outfits, plenty of champagne, and much more.

As the trailer suggests, choose Paris… on December 21!
