Welcome to Punch Drunk TV, where your intrepid hosts Jack Conway and Aaron Pruner navigate the often tumultuous Peak TV landscape -- one drink at a time.

Dec 7, 2018

It's a weird week here at Punch Drunk TV. Jack just got back from a sad trip with the wife and Aaron learned his deceased father used to do biker porn in the '70s. So get ready, things go a bit off-the-rails for a bit.

There's also some Oscars drama to discuss and the Golden Globe nominations were announced, so we sort through the most important TV nods. Who do you think should win? 

NEWS HIGHLIGHTS THIS WEEK:

  • Netflix canceled "Daredevil" but spent $100 million to keep "Friends" for another year.
  • Hulu solidified a deal with Sony's Funimation Ink, which will give Hulu exclusive U.S. streaming rights to international anime hits like "My Hero Academia," "Attack on Titan" and "Tokyo Ghoul." Hulu described the pact as its "largest agreement for anime programming to date." According to THR, "The deal also grants Hulu a first look at on-demand U.S. streaming rights to future anime series released by Funimation beginning in 2019. These future titles will premiere day-and-date on Hulu and Funimation with the worldwide premieres in Japan."

  • SYFY is rebooting Rod Serling's other anthology series, "Night Gallery"
