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.

May 20, 2016

It's that time of year again when the networks announce their new fall lineups. Exciting stuff, we know. Instead of reporting on all the channels, this episode focuses mainly on the big five and really, it was a damn bloodbath at ABC.

Some favorite shows across the board were canceled, including "Agent Carter," "Galavant," "The Grinder," "CSI Cyber," "Telenovela" and "The Muppets."

That being said, it looks like NBC and CBS are amping up their comedy slates with the likes of "The Good Place" and "The Great Outdoors," while ABC is bringing Keifer Sutherland back to TV in "Designated Survivor" and FOX is pulling out the stops with "24:Legacy," "Prison Break," "Making History" and "Son of Zorn."

One question, though ... what is up with all the time travel shows?

Between "Timeless" at NBC, "Time After Time" at ABC and "Frequency" at The CW, one has to wonder if 2016/2017 will be the year time travel hits it big on network TV.

Hey, at least these ideas aren't as bad as that "MacGyver" reboot at CBS ... right?

We skip Winners and Losers in this episode but still squeeze in talk of "Bates Motel," "Bob's Burgers," "Broad City" and "Last Man on Earth." You're welcome.
