Show Rundown: In this week’s episode, the TV Networks are unveiling their new fall schedules so they’ve announced which TV shows have been canceled. Did your show make the cut? We’re going to talk about that with Peter Brown from Assignment X. In our second segment we are talking about favorite movies about journalism. Why? Umm, no reason. And finally, we will end our show with what we’re dorking out about this week, including Larry Wilmore’s new podcast and which Saturday Night Live cast member should run for president.
Topic 1: TV Season Wrapup
The official 2016-2017 TV season is almost over. Of course, the idea of the “official” TV season is over, too, but we’re going to pretend it’s still a thing. Back in September, we did an episode with Peter Brown from Assignment X in which we shared the new TV shows we were most looking forward to. This week, the TV Networks are meeting with the press and unveiling their new lineups and their list of shows that didn’t make the cut, so we figured it’s a good time to have Peter back on to revisit our picks and see how we did.
