Hey Clinkers, Aaron here -- I am out of town this week so
welcome to an episode Jack and I recorded on a Monday. We never
record on Mondays. It was weird.
In this episode, we cover the pending return of "Magnum P.I.,"
The CW's new "feminist" angle for "Charmed" and the awful new
version of WGN America. Also, Aaron had an Aziz Ansari conundrum he
really needed to work out ... just listen, you'll see.
