Fans Aren’t Too Happy After This ‘Game of Thrones’ Announcement About the Final Season

What’s happening?

HBO has officially confirmed that “Game of Thrones” fans will have to wait until next year to see the final season of the hit show.

The decision to hold on season 8 partly stems from creative reasons: Showrunners David Benioff and Dan Weiss want to take their time crafting the six episodes that will make up the closing season. It’s also a practical move since HBO can focus on the upcoming 2018 Emmys (season 7 of “Game of Thrones” is eligible for this awards season).

Uh-oh. How long will I have to wait?

TBD. Entertainment Weekly pointed out that a spring launch was the norm for the show every year until season 7, so a spring 2019 premiere seems likely. But HBO is still keeping a premiere date for the final season under wraps.

On today’s show, Jeffy couldn’t believe he has to wait until next year for the final season of “Game of Thrones.”

“Why must I wait until 2019?” he demanded.

PAT: Pat and Jeffy on the Glenn Beck Program.

He's back Monday morning.

JEFFY: Blah, blah, blah. It's global warming. It's climate change.

We've released some land in Anwar and drilled some oil. Big deal. Why must I wait until 2019? 2019 before I see the new season of Game of Thrones. Why? Why, Pat?

PAT: It's a bad move on their part too because you lose that passion for it. In the year and a half while you're waiting, if you've seen all the seasons already, you're not going to be as adamant, as passionate about it.

JEFFY: I waited. I waited. I waited. So that I could binge through them. I just finished a month and a half ago, something like that, so I had 2018, with the final season. I'd be all caught up, good to go.

PAT: And now you got to wait.

Who else did this? Sopranos did that. The HBO series west world seems to be doing that right now.

JEFFY: Yeah, I know.

PAT: So --

JEFFY: The Game of Thrones was so good. I was -- if they can make the last season worthy, you know --

PAT: And that is -- is the -- is season eight the last? Is it?

JEFFY: Yeah, that's it.

PAT: Oh, wow.

JEFFY: The guys who write it and a big part of it have already signed new deals for new shows, as soon as Game of Thrones is over. I think they signed it with Amazon. I think they were like, we'll do the shows for you sooner or later.

Oh, okay. No problem.

PAT: So that throws everybody into a waiting pattern.

JEFFY: Right. Yeah.

PAT: If you're looking for a movie to see this weekend, here's what opens: Insidious: The Last Key. Is that a horror movie? Goldbuster. Project Eden. And The Strange Ones, all open.

JEFFY: Boy, they sound like billion-dollar movies right there. Every one you mentioned sounds like it will be at least a billion dollars worldwide.

PAT: Never heard of any of them.

Have you seen Star Wars yet? Last Jedi?

JEFFY: No. No. We covered this.

PAT: Well, we covered it on Tuesday. You could have seen it.

JEFFY: Busy. Busy.

PAT: You're busy.

JEFFY: I got other shows to be on. I don't have time to be in the theater.

PAT: Okay. Busy.

Jeff Fisher, busy? Everybody knows that's a lie.

JEFFY: I've had things to do.

PAT: Everybody knows. All right. We'll see you back Monday, immediately following this show on Pat Gray Unleashed on TheBlaze Radio and TV Network.

Also, Glenn is back on this show Monday. Have a great weekend.

Marxist Methods: Debunking the Left's LIES About Critical Race Theory

We've heard a lot about critical race theory lately, and for good reason: It's a racist ideology designed to corrupt our children and undermine our American values. But most of what we see are the results of a process that has been underway for decades. And that's not something the mainstream media, the Democrat Party, and even teachers unions want you to know. They're doing everything in their power to try and convince you that it's no big deal. They want to sweep everything under the rug and keep you in the dark. To fight it, we need to understand what fuels it.

On his Wednesday night special this week, Glenn Beck exposes the deep-seated Marxist origins of CRT and debunks the claims that it's just a harmless term for a school of legal scholarship. Newsweek opinion editor Josh Hammer joins to argue why we must ban critical race theory from our schools if we want to save a very divided nation.

'They believe their job is to REMAKE your child': WSJ writer warns public schools may be LOST to woke trans activism

There's a new "reality" spreading, and the mere act of questioning it has become incredibly dangerous, Wall Street Journal investigative journalist Abigail Shrier told Glenn on the most recent episode of "The Glenn Beck Podcast."

Shrier's book, "Irreversible Damage: The Transgender Craze Seducing Our Daughters," exposes the radical gender activism that — like critical race theory — has overtaken our children's schools and culture. But even worse, she warned, it could end your parental rights for good.

Shrier made it clear she is by no means "anti-trans," but simply speaking up against the extremes of this new "reality" has made her enemy No. 1 to many activists. Her book has been bashed so hard by the Left that Target has stopped selling it twice, Amazon once banned ads for it, and the American Booksellers Association even called sending it to others "a serious, violent incident."

In the clip below, Shrier explained why she believes "there may be no hope for the public school system."

"You have teachers behaving like activists across the country who have no interest in actually teaching. They believe their job is to remake your child," she asserted. "We're seeing so much evidence of that, I think it's fair to say that it may be too deeply rooted in the ideology being taught in public school. I'm not sure that the public school system is redeemable at this point."

Is California ‘PURPOSEFULLY’ destroying this small business?

It seems like some politicians are purposefully trying to destroy the lives and dreams of certain Americans, specifically small business owners. Dave Foldes spoke to Glenn over six months ago after THIS audience raised thousands of dollars for his restaurant that refused to close: Cronies Sports Grill. Now, despite making progress in his administrative battle against LA, the city of Agoura Hills, California is coming for Cronies instead. And the reasoning is INSANE. But Foldes isn't giving up, and neither are his supporters. It's the ultimate David vs. Goliath showdown.

Trans Activism Will End Your Parental Rights | Abigail Shrier | Ep 110

There's a new "reality" spreading, and the mere act of questioning it is incredibly dangerous. Just ask Wall Street Journal investigative journalist Abigail Shrier. Her book, "Irreversible Damage: The Transgender Craze Seducing Our Daughters," exposes the radical gender activism that — just like critical race theory — has overtaken our children's schools and culture. But even worse, Shrier argues it could end your parental rights for good. She is by no means "anti-trans," but simply speaking up against the extremes of this new "reality" has made her enemy number one to the activists. Recently, the American Booksellers Association even called sending her book to others "a serious, violent incident." Abigail joins Glenn to lay out just how slippery this slope has proven to be and what we — conservatives and liberals — must do to protect our children.
