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.

Another long episode, you guys. Look, we're living in trying times and everyone has a different means of coping. Please enjoy the sugar-laden insanity -- also, Starburst Jelly Beans are the sh*t!
