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.

Dec 1, 2017

It's the first episode of December which means, it's time for eggnog and matzahs! We're back from Thanksgiving break, Y'all, and Jack enjoyed turning 25 years old again. He catches us up on his birthday shenanigans.

Then we talk a bit about the best video games based on TV shows. Aside from "South Park," which games would you choose? And while we're on the topic, which TV show should have its own video game? You know, aside from Anthony Bourdain ...

NEWS HIGHLIGHTS OF THE WEEK:

  • Lennie James is leaving “The Walking Dead” and going to “Fear the Walking Dead.” Morgan Jones will become a series regular in the spinoff which is cool, but makes absolutely no sense unless the show will have a time jump in its next season.
  • “Supergirl” nearly doubled its ratings as CW kicked off its annual DC crossover event, bringing in 2.7 million viewers on Monday
  • Netflix has renewed “MST3K: The Return” for another season which will hit the streaming service in the “not-too-distant future,” according to Netflix.
  • Amid sexual harassment allegations against Jeremy Piven, CBS has canceled “Wisdom of the Crowd.”
  • MTV has greenlit “Jersey Shore Vacation,” reuniting the original cast of The Jersey Shore for a new series. It’ll premiere sometime in 2018 and comes from the same person behind the network’s other new reality series, “Floribama Shore.”
  • Will Ferrell and Molly Shannon will host live coverage of the Rose Parade in an Amazon Prime Video live stream, presented by Funny or Die.
