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 15, 2019

We're back after a week hiatus and, while Jack and I are both exhausted, we've still found time to drink and yell about TV -- for your aural pleasure, of course.

It's also the end of this year's Winter Television Critics Association press tour and I may have hung out with the "American Gods" cast ... and I may have told Emily Browning that Jack requested I throw her in a sack. And it may have made things a bit awkward.

You'll just have to listen to find out!
