TV Turkeys, OTT Options Expand, Exercising Patience

Hosted by and

We spend a lot of time talking about shows we love, but this month we spend some time on shows that went splat. Biggest busts, biggest disappointments, and rom-coms that had us falling out of love.

And since we last gathered, there are now even more options for watching TV shows without a cable or even basic television package. Sony will roll out a streaming TV package called PlayStation Vue. We talk over the top content delivery and what that could mean for the ever-changing media landscape.

Finally, networks and patience are two words you may not think about putting together, but there certain shows that will be never be hits that networks keep renewing. What’s the thinking there?

We discuss all that and more, plus our monthly Downloads -- the stories or shows most top of our minds this month.


End of show Downloads:

Joe: The ABC comedy Cristela is a delight on Friday nights.

Diane: Watching The Property Brothers renovate their own house will be the holiday event of the season.

Mike: Music is a tough sell in prime-time, but just because others have failed, don’t pass up Empire, the new hip-hop soap opera starting in January on Fox.
