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.

NO comparison between REAL Jim Crow laws & Georgia voting bill

The left keeps comparing Georgia's new voting regulations to Jim Crow era laws, arguing the voting bill is too restrictive and even racist against minority populations. But Glenn argues that it's an INSULTING comparison to make, especially to those who actually lived and experienced the real, horrifying Jim Crow laws during the early 20th century. In this clip, Glenn explains what Jim Crow ACTUALLY means and how Georgia does not even COME CLOSE.

Will vaccinated Americans still need mask regulations by Memorial Day?

With Texas' recent elimination of state-mandated COVID regulations, Major League Baseball was back full swing in the Lone Star State; the Texas Rangers just held the first full-capacity sporting event since the start of the pandemic. In this clip, Stu details the non-strict 'mask police' that were at the game, and Pat makes an interesting prediction: could mask regulations for vaccinated Americans actually be phased out by Memorial Day?

Did Joe Biden tell America to stop praying?

Enough prayers? Why is supposed Catholic Joe Biden suggesting that Congress ought to stop praying for after someone commits acts of gun violence?

On Friday, Stu Burguiere and Pat Gray filled in for Glenn and discussed President Joe Biden's remarks during his speech on gun control. "Enough prayers. Time for some action," Biden said. Stu and Pat were surprised how dismissive Biden appeared to be on the idea of prayer.

WATCH this pastor chase 'communist' cops out of his church: 'Gestapo is not allowed here!'

Just days after Canadian pastor James Coates was released from prison for refusing to bow to COVID-19 lockdown restrictions, several police officers showed up at another church to ensure restrictions were being followed. But Polish pastor Artur Pawlowski of the Cave of Adullam Church in Alberta, Canada, knew his rights, telling the cops not to come back until they had a warrant in hand.

Filling in for Glenn Beck on the radio program this week, Pat Gray and Stu Burguiere played a video of the interaction.

"Please get out. Please get out of this property immediately. Get out!" Pawlowski can be heard yelling at the six officers who entered his church.

"Out! Out! Out! Get out of this property immediately until you come back with a warrant," he continued. "Go out and don't come back. I don't want to talk to you. You Nazis, Gestapo is not allowed here! ... Nazis are not welcome here! Do not come back you Nazi psychopaths. Unbelievable sick, evil people. Intimidating people in a church during the Passover! You Gestapo, Nazi, communist fascists! Don't you dare come back here!"

Watch this clip to see the heated exchange:
