Episode 108 - Verbal Twitter Argument

Sometimes, this show is produced so well it surprises me -- Chad White, the host of the show. Just kidding. Let's get into it. SINCLAIR buys the sports stations DISNEY adopted from FOX; SUPERSTORE and NBC helps women in the industry; E! cancels "BUSY TONIGHT" but perhaps it will live on elsewhere; and CBS thinks censoring "THE GOOD FIGHT" is a good idea. It's not. It's really not.

Episode 103 - Sitcom Comedy

It’s a sad week for series finales and Chad is living in his feelings. Both YOU’RE THE WORST and CRAZY EX-GIRLFRIEND are leaving the airwaves for good. Meanwhile, JORDAN PEELE brings his new TWILIGHT ZONE to CBS ALL ACCESS and it’s passable but a slog. Then, Chad covers ONE DAY AT A TIME possibly getting revived on another streaming network; the DEPARTMENT OF JUSTICE saving Netflix from the Oscars; and the WRITERS GUILD OF AMERICA’s fight against their agents.
