Episode 119 - 15 White Guys

With all this news, it's hard to keep newsing...news... I am so tired. Chad continues his march down the rabbit hole of berating streaming networks. Netflix cancels TUCA AND BERTIE and creator Lisa Hanawalt has some words for the streamer; CINEMAX may have a minimal amount of time left; LILY SINGH's new late night show has its writers but the LA TIMES points out that, again, late night lacks in women writers (and hosts and POC too); and more!

Episode 107 - All You Need is Three

It's all about the ads today! While there are no ads in the show, we darn sure will cover the topic. SPOTIFY makes it to 100 million subs; HULU hits the 28 million sub mark; NETFLIX may have to start running ads; and advertising on TV is changing forever.

Spotify is the first to 100 million paid subs: https://www.theverge.com/2019/4/29/18522297/spotify-100-million-users-apple-music-podcasting-free-users-advertising-voice-speakers

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.

Episode 101 - One Cancellation at a Time

Fresh off of finally doing some work on a set, Chad takes to the mic to discuss topics no one cares about. These include HULU's PEN15 and SHRILL -- two obscenely funny shows about women working their way to power. One is about two 30 year olds playing teenage versions of themselves while the other is about a fat female writer struggling to fit in to a skinny world. Also on the docket: GOOGLE FIBER bowing out of a city it started in; LILY SINGH getting a late night show on NBC; SATURDAY NIGHT LIVE being accused of stealing two sketches; NETFLIX cancelling the greatest show on the platform -- ONE DAY AT A TIME -- and the reason behind all of the recent cancellations of shows with three seasons. Boy, is it a doozy.

Clad in jeans and his favorite flannel, Chad takes to the mic to cover the topics he loves. JASON WITTEN returns to the Cowboys; EA and BioWare's ANTHEM crashes PS4s; STEVEN SPIELBERG craps on Netflix's Oscar win; and DISNEY trying to gain controlling shares of HULU and 4,000 job casualties of the DISNEY/FOX merger are imminent. Chad's got so much free time on his hands. Too much time. Oh God, someone help him!
