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.

Feb 1, 2019

This week, we're faced with a bunch of horror reboots for the small-screen which could be good or bad news, depending on how you look at it. We also touch on those big TV winners from this past weekend's SAG Awards -- and you'll never guess who won Best Stunt Ensemble.

Jack's wife, JoEllen, wants to know ... have you accomplished any of your New Year's Resolutions? Or are you like Aaron and prefer to make goals, instead?

NEWS HIGHLIGHTS THIS WEEK:

  • A "Resident Evil" TV series, from the same people behind the movies, is in the works at Netflix. 
  • Nick Antosca is developing a "Child's Play" TV series with original movie creator Don Mancini at SYFY. And according to Antosca, "Chucky can say 'fuck' on SYFY."
  • CBS All Access has ordered a 10-episode mini-series remake of "The Stand." 
  • Season 2 of "Killing Eve" will air on both BBC America and AMC to broaden its reach.
  • "Rent Live" was Fox's lowest-rated musical. Only 3.42 million people tuned in during the three-hour long event -- which definitely wasn't "live."

AARON'S LOSERS: "The Punisher" and "Rent: Live"
AARON'S FENCERS: "Black Monday," "Future Man," "Friends From College" and "The Ted Bundy Tapes"
JACK'S FENCERS: "Conan" and "The Umbrella Academy"
AARON'S WINNERS: "Carmen Sandiego," "The Passage" and "I Am the Night"
JACK'S WINNERS: "The Good Place," "Deadly Class," "Broad City," "The Other Two," "Carmen Sandiego" and "Hot Ones" (w/ guest Gordon Ramsay)
