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.

Mar 30, 2018

It's been a few days since Jack has had anything to drink and he broke that streak in this episode. You've been warned.

On the flipside, Aaron came into the episode already a bit tipsy off of some odd blue drink from FX's "Legion" Chamber Experience going on in Hollywood this weekend. Let's party!

NEWS HIGHLIGHTS:

  • Donald and Stephen Glover are no longer working on FX's "Deadpool" animated series. After the news hit, Glover released his entire script for the pilot online
  • 18 million people tuned into "Roseanne" when it returned to TV on Tuesday. And in a speech in Ohio on Tuesday, which was supposed to be about infrastructure, Donald Trump ended up taking the credit for those ratings.
  • Stormy Daniels' 60 Minutes interview brought the show's highest ratings in 10 years — that's 22 million viewers
  • Steven Spielberg came out against Netflix movies being nominated for Oscars. If it's released in the TV format, it should be considered a TV movie and only be considered for Emmys. Do we agree?
  • Netflix has renewed four unscripted shows: "Queer Eye," the docuseries "Dope," the baking competition series "Nailed It," and the docuseries "The Toys That Made Us"
  • Get excited, Jack. John Mulaney will host "SNL" on April 14th.
