What’s coming & going on Netflix in January 2017

While 2016 was a crummy year for a lot of reasons, Netflix was at least fantastic, and there’s no reason to think that things won’t get even better on the streaming service in 2017.

Here’s Mariah Carey’s train wreck of a New Year’s Eve performance

Well, Mariah Carey just summarized 2016 perfectly in its final minutes.

Dana Holgorsen is losing his mind on the West Virginia sidelines
