If you're a fan of Gen X nostalgia, it's been a great couple of weeks for you. 1980's reboots and revivals continue to get the greenlight. Every time old shows are announced to be coming back, there's always a blowback of criticism about TV being out of new ideas. Years ago, it's true the reboots could take away oxygen from potential new shows, but in today's landscape, there's plenty of space for new ideas at cable and streaming networks, so perhaps a little comfortable nostalgia is what the broadcast networks are best at. Perhaps, however, there should be a time limit before something can come back. Joe votes 10 years, at least.

So much time for talk, so little time to watch Late night TV is everywhere--and now at any time you want. Much of it gets watched the next day in clip form. There's no way to watch all the shows--is this a case where less could be more? Not likely, but that won't stop us from making some suggestions!
