Though the pandemic has confined everyone to their homes, it isn’t stopping the entertainment industry from its purpose of entertaining. As all major events have been cancelled for the year, many shows have started hosting from their respective houses.

โ€œRelatively soon is an interesting phrase. Relative to the entire history of earth? Sure, the vaccine is going to come real fast,โ€ said Pittโ€™s Fauci, seated at a desk behind a stately bookcase. โ€œBut if you were going to tell a friend, โ€˜Iโ€™ll be over relatively soonโ€™ and then showed up a year and a half later, well, your friend may be relatively pissed off.โ€
