As Dr. Dre once rapped, Chad has "been in the lab with a pen and a pad!" Except everything said on this show is completely made up! Not the news parts, those are real. Chad skims over the OSCARS and mostly craps on "Green Book;" DESUS & MERO's new Showtime show (also titled "Desus & Mero" like their Viceland show); high priced APPLE recognizing its high prices; and working as a mom in the broadcast news!
Big things are happening and Chad's back recording in the car. Only one of those is true. Do you like movies? Because this whole episode is about movies. Most of it any way. Our boy covers the whole, terrible JUSSIE SMOLLETT situation; the ACADEMY's tumultuous road through the 2019 award season; and how head of AMAZON STUDIOS JENNIFER SALKE plans on making the video service number one.
Guess who's back? Back in the studio! Chad is back! Tell...no one? Finally returning to the studio, Chad plants his tiny waist on the futon to stumble through a handful of topics. THE LEGO MOVIE: THE SECOND PART didn't do too hot at the box office; FX must do something about its show output in the streaming era; TIVO isn't the ad killer we all thought it was; and female led films took a bite out of the 2018 release slate.
Stay tuned to the end of the show to hear a never-berfore-heard clip from comedian Greg Stone's comedy album, THE AMAZING GREG STONE!
The Super Bowl was in Atlanta this year and Chad got a chance to go to the game. He had a blast! Some other stuff happened this week too like AMBER RUFFIN scoring a pilot on NBC; DISNEY's move into streaming; THE SIMPSONS getting renewed; robot journalists; and SPOTIFY making money moves.
Boom clap! The sound of your (podcast) app! The talking goes on and on and on and on and! Coming to you from [REDACTED LOCATION] -- close to [REDACTED LOCATION] -- Chad is breaking all the rules in order to drop this show like it's hot. In a hurried manner, our boy covers NBC and The Rock's TITAN GAMES; CONAN's new half hour format; BUZZFEED laying off 15% of its workforce; Fox's terrible decision to air the terrible RENT: LIVE; and ABC's The Goldberg's spinoff, SCHOOLED, and why it's a show that was gentrified from its original premise. All that only on- Did you hear that?! Someone's coming! Gotta blast!
Check out part of Chad's interview with RON FUNCHES at the end! It should be up on the site by the end of the week! Exclamation points!
