BCTV Daily Dispatch 26 May 2021: Always Sunny 15, Powerpuff & More

We're the king of television, there is none higher. Sucker, MCs should call us… the BCTV Daily Dispatch! If you're new then here's the deal: every day, we look back at what's catching everyone's attention across the television, cable, and streaming side of the pop culture landscape in the past 24 hours. Today, we have some new additions with Black Lightning teasing a "flashy" future, a toothless edition of WWE Raw, a Lucifer chair dance party, Shogun casting, more details on the Powerpuff pilot, John Cena pro-China, and It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia kicking off Season 15 in an officially unofficial way. But since some days can be a ton more hellish than others when it comes to news, reviews, and previews, we've also hand-picked a selection of articles that are more than worth your time. Finally, we jump into our TARDIS for a trip back in TV history and then wrap things up with today's "Random Thought"- where we're slowly realizing that it's Dick Wolf's world and we're just "dun-DUN-ing" in it.
