There’s no love for Lorde under the Golden Gate Bridge. San Francisco radio stations KFOG and KOIT have declared airways a “Royals”-free zone in anticipation of the Giants’ World Cup bout against the Kansas City Royals. Batter up! [Billboard]

Jimmy Fallon is penning a book on parenting… sort of. His second children’s read, Your Baby’s First Word Will Be Dada, will be out next year, and is inspired by his attempts to get newborn Winnie Rose to call out for dad first. Admittedly, “mama” won that round. [The Hollywood Reporter]

If the murderous clown on American Horror Story: Freak Show doesn’t tickle your fancy, Ryan Murphy is here to lighten the mood. Fox has given the green light to a new project from Murphy and his AHS team entitled Scream Queens. It’ll be an hour-long, horror-comedy anthology series helmed by two female leads. Any bets on Jessica Lange? [Vulture]

Universal Pictures has made its scares social. The studio is the first to use advertising on Snapchat. Over the weekend, it promoted PG-13 movie Ouija with a 20-second trailer that appeared on the app’s “Recent Updates” page. It’s an expert move in targeting the millions who use SnapChat, 32% of which are 13—17 years old. [Variety]

Jay Leno is known for dishing out the jokes, but the acclaimed comedian can take a jab or two himself. He was on the receiving end of laughs from Fallon, Wanda Sykes, and Jerry Seinfeld this weekend in D.C. where he was awarded the Mark Twain Prize for American Humor. He joins Will FerrellBill Cosby, and Ellen DeGeneres as recipients of the nation’s highest humor honor. [The Hollywood Reporter]
