Screengrab is a new KCRW commentary segment hosted by veteran TV journalists Michael Schneider and Joe Adalian. Each week, they'll have a lively discussion about the evolving world of television and that screens -- be they tablets, phones or TV sets -- increasingly dominate our lives.

Two big HBO shows,  'Game of Thrones' and 'Veep,'  aired their final series this year and both are expected to land a bucketful of Emmy nominations. But are they a shoo-in to win?

Joe wants to know: "Where is the broadcast network version of Shark Week?"

We've talked before about showrunners moving from broadcast networks to Netflix in multi-million dollar deals.

As the Democratic debates begin this week, we take time to talk TV's coverage of the 2020 election.

With its graphic depictions of drug addiction and sex, HBO's 'Euphoria' depicts a modern version of teen life that's beyond bleak.

Last week, 'Jeopardy!' was in the headlines as contestant James Holzhauer ended his epic streak on the show.

If you don't subscribe to CBS All Access, you may not have seen the critically acclaimed show 'The Good Fight,' the spin-off of the CBS drama 'The Good Wife.'

You may have noticed a lot of big finales, new streaming seasons, or special TV events in the latter half of this month. The reason?
