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.

Jun 16, 2017

Warning: Jack is drunker than normal due to two days of working on-site at E3. Aaron's still angry about the lack of waffles at Netflix's "Stranger Things" Waffle Breakfast. But hey, at least they finally realized they can do a pretty decent Beavis and Butthead impersonation ...

Question: Do you guys really want an eight-hour long episode from us? Like, that's a crazy concept, right? Why would you want that ... but, really though, do you want that?

NEWS:

  • The original Batman Adam West passed away at the age of 88 on Saturday, June 10th.
  • The new “DuckTales” will premiere on Disney XD at midnight on August 12th with a 24-hour marathon of the series premiere. But you’ll have to wait until September 23rd for new episodes -- because that date marks the 30th anniversary of the original series.
  • Ryan Murphy has put the pause on “American Crime Story: Hurricane Katrina” to make “The Assassination of Gianni Versace” the show’s official Season 2. Originally, “Katrina” was to mark the show’s second season, and the plan was that both seasons would go into production at the same time. Now it won’t begin shooting until sometime in 2018.
  • “Broad City” will bleep out Donald Trump’s name throughout the duration of Season 4.
  • CNN dropped Reza Aslan’s show “Believer” from their lineup after he posted anti-Trump tweets on his personal Twitter page -- one post called the president a “piece of shit.” 
  • CMT is in early talks to revive Tim Allen’s “Last Man Standing” because of course, they are.
  • This season of “Bachelor in Paradise” has been shut down due to allegations of sexual misconduct. 
  • The “John Wick” TV series will focus on the global chain of assassin hotels, titled “The Continental.” Director Chad Stahelski says the story will focus on the “intricacies of that world” and Keanu Reeves may make a cameo as John Wick but he won’t be the focal point of the series. “You can be with the consigliere, concierge, the sommelier,” He tells IndieWire. “You can be with all these different characters and walk through the world in different aspects; ones that I’m a little limited [from exploring] by staying with my lead guy.”
  • BBC America announced “Luther” will be returning for Season 5. It’ll be four episodes and won’t begin filming until late 2018.
