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 1, 2018

It's our 99th episode! To celebrate coming in shy of the big hundred, Jack and Aaron brought their wives along for a very special episode. Here, we discuss our "couple shows" and how our significant others affect the shows we watch.

We recorded this one a bit early this week (on Memorial Day, to be specific), which means there's no talk of the "Roseanne" fiasco that went down on Tuesday. Who needs more "Roseanne" talk, anyway.

NEWS HIGHLIGHTS THIS WEEK:

  • New Episodes of "Queer Eye" is hitting Netflix on June 15! The new episodes will feature the show's first female and trans male subjects.
  • "The Simpsons" creator Matt Groening is bringing his first new series to TV in 20 years. It's called "Disenchantment" and according to Mashable, "The series will follow the misadventures of "hard-drinking young princess Bean, her feisty elf companion Elfo, and her personal demon Luci." The report continues, saying, "As they go about their adventures, the trio will encounter "ogres, sprites, harpies, imps, trolls, walruses, and lots of human fools."
  • Idris Elba is set to direct, produce, and star as Quasimodo in a modern retelling of Victor Hugo’s classic, "The Hunchback of Notre Dame," for Netflix. Sure.
  • And because Aaron and Kelly are expecting a child, we talk about the impact the Marvel Cinematic Universe is having on new baby names.
