Netflix got us all hooked on binging, but some of the newer entries in the streaming wars are going a different direction.

They were once one company, then broken up, but now Shari Redstone is re-combining CBS and Viacom.

It's the annual Screengrab Thanksgiving episode, the 2019 edition! This year Mike and Joe are thankful for some new dramas and retro comedies.

Now that Disney owns a majority stake in Hulu, the streaming service is seeing some changes, especially when it comes to content from FX.

At $7 a month, or free for Verizon customers, Disney+ seems like a steal. But unlike some of the other streaming services, it won't have a ton of new content upon debut.

In the week between the launch of Apple TV Plus and Disney Plus, Mike and Joe discuss HBO Max, which held a big presentation recently.

The reviews for 'The Morning Show' and the three other series that land later this week probably aren't what Apple was hoping for.

It was widely known that NBC News refused to air Ronan Farrow's reporting on Harvey Weinstein, but Farrow's new book explains just how bad things were.
