Spoiler alert: If you recorded the show and haven’t watched it yet, skip this article.

In the episode that aired Jan. 23, Pearson’s home catches fire when a faulty slow-cooker is left plugged in overnight. Viewers were left with the impression that Pearson (Milo Ventimiglia) died in the fire, but in Sunday’s episode, which followed Super Bowl LII, he walked away from the blaze. Pearson appeared to be all right, but when he checks into a hospital because of smoke inhalation and second-degree burns on his hands, he dies of a heart attack, CNN reported.

Fans of the show flocked to Twitter to express their sadness at losing Pearson. 

“It’s 5 a.m. and I’m ugly crying because of this show,” one fan tweeted.

“Everybody deserves to be loved by a Jack Pearson,” tweeted another.

“Who needs dumb boys to break your heart when you can watch #ThisIsUs.” tweeted a third person.

A Twitter spokesman said this week’s show received the most tweets since the series debuted, CNN reported.

Super Bowl halftime show had humble beginnings

The Super Bowl halftime show has become an event in itself, with big-name acts commanding center stage before packed stadiums and millions of television viewers.

It has come a long way from trumpeter Al Hirt, who played in the first Super Bowl halftime show before a stadium that was only filled to two-thirds of its capacity.

The Rolling Stones, Bruce Springsteen, Paul McCartney, Lady Gaga, Michael Jackson, Prince, Beyonce and Katy Perry have given memorable performances, but here are some halftime shows you may have forgotten about. 

The first Super Bowl, on Jan. 15, 1967, at the Los Angeles Coliseum, featured Hirt, the University of Arizona Symphonic Marching Band, the Grambling State Marching Band and the Anaheim High School Drill Team and Flag Girls.

Up With People performed in Super Bowl V, and Hirt returned for Super Bowl VI in 1972 to share the stage with Ella Fitzgerald, Carol Channing, the U.S. Air Force Academy Cadet Chorale and the U.S. Marine Corps Drill team.

Ever seen a beauty queen perform at halftime? Judy Mallett, who was Miss Texas in 1973, played the fiddle with the University of Texas Longhorn Band when Super Bowl VIII came to Houston’s Rice Stadium in 1974.

Super Bowl XXV in Tampa, Florida, is remembered for Whitney Houston’s rousing rendition of the national anthem, but New Kids on the Block was part of the halftime show.

The Super Bowl in 1992 could be called the last of the modest halftime shows, with Gloria Estefan and members of the 1980 U.S. Olympic hockey team the highlights. But when Fox siphoned off halftime viewers with a live episode of “In Living Color,” the NFL switched to big-name concerts, starting with Michael Jackson in 1993 for Super Bowl XXVII at the Rose Bowl.

Other big names that followed included Diana Ross (1996), Aerosmith (2001), U2 (2002), Janet Jackson and Justin Timberlake in a sequence that became known as for its “wardrobe malfunction” (2004), McCartney (2005), the Rolling Stones (2006), Prince (2007), Springsteen (2009), The Who (2011), Perry (2015) and Beyonce (2017).

Steve Irwin died in 2006 when he was struck in the heart by a stingray while filming a wildlife show. The couple had been together for 14 years before his death. His family, Terri and their two children, Bindi, 19, and Robert, 14, cope with his death by spending quality time together each night.

“We’d each say our favorite part of the day, what we were most looking forward to tomorrow and a good deed we did that day,” she said. “You can’t focus on yourself. You need to focus on what you’re doing for others and then you can start to heal.”

The family will be returning to Animal Planet with a new series this fall that will follow their day-to-day lives at the Australia Zoo and their work with their nonprofit organization, Wildlife Warriors

“We do want to carry on in Dad’s footsteps, and make sure everything he worked so hard for continues on,” daughter Bindi said on a January broadcast of “Today.”

Ronda Rousey debuts for WWE at Women’s Royal Rumble

After Asuka won Sunday's inaugural Women’s Royal Rumble, Ronda Rousey debuted in the WWE.

>> Read more trending newsNothing happened other than her appearing in the ring with Charlotte Flair, Asuka, and Alexis Bliss.For what it is worth, the former UFC champion denied rumors that she’d be participating in Sunday’s women’s Royal Rumble match as she’ll be filming a movie out of the country.

“I’m actually leaving to Colombia right now to finish shooting ‘Mile 22’ and I won’t be back until mid-February,” Rousey told TMZ.

The former women’s bantamweight champion added that she still hasn’t signed a contract with WWE. Obviously, that now appears to be a “work.”

Earlier this week, Dave Meltzer of the Wrestling Observer Newsletter reported that Rousey would “likely” win the first female Royal Rumble match if she participated. She didn’t win, but certainly made a huge impact.

On Jan. 9, the former MMA champion was captured alongside Paul “Triple H” Levesque — WWE’s executive vice president of talent, live events and creative — for what was presumed to be a business meeting.

The show ended with Rousey shaking Stephanie McMahon’s hand and walking off.

Morgan sent out quotes on Twitter ahead of the interview, which aired Sunday night on Britain’s ITV, writing: “President Trump has declared he is NOT a feminist.”

The British television host went on to quote Trump, writing, “He tells me: ‘No, I wouldn’t say I’m a feminist. I mean, I think that would be, maybe, going too far. I’m for women, I’m for men, I’m for everyone.'”

The news comes during a worldwide conversation about sexual assault and women's rights.

Trump has been criticized for his treatment of women and has been accused by more than a dozen women of sexual misconduct. Trump has denied the allegations.

On Friday, Morgan posted another quote from Trump, this time about a post the president had retweeted by Britain First, a far-right group: "I don’t want to be involved with these people. If you’re telling me they’re horrible racist people. I certainly apologize."

Morgan also asked Trump about British Prime Minister Theresa May’s handling of Brexit. Trump replied, “Would it be the way I negotiate? No, I wouldn’t negotiate it the way it’s [being] negotiated … I would have had a different attitude.”

When Morgan asked him what he meant, Trump replied, “I would have said that the European Union is not cracked up to what it’s supposed to be. I would have taken a tougher stand in getting out.”
