The TV Squad Podcast: Tom Papa of 'The Marriage Ref,' 'DWTS,' March Madness, and More!

by Joel Keller, posted Mar 25th 2010 5:11PM
Tom Papa of 'The Marriage Ref'After a few stops and starts, we finally managed to get Tom Papa, host of NBC's 'The Marriage Ref,' to join us on the podcast. He talks with Jason Hughes, Danny Gallagher and me about the new show, who his favorite couple has been so far, managing a panel with Larry David, Ricky Gervais and Madonna, and exactly what he thought of the Leno-Conan debacle that gave his show that Thursday at 10PM ET opening.

Tom joins us about 18 minutes into the podcast and stays with us for about 25 minutes. Before and after, Jason, Danny and I talk about:
  • How March Madness messes with our DVRs and why networks can't send out live DVR updates,
  • The new cast of 'Dancing with the Stars' and the importance of Pam Anderson's breasts this season,
  • Two shows that are finally getting killed off: one good ('Scrubs') one not so good (''Til Death'). We also talk about what shows have been on the "Can't Kill 'Em" list in recent years.
  • Picks of the week, and more.

Run time is 1:13:08.

As always, the music at the beginning and end of the podcast is "Life" by Justin Trawick.

Hey. I just wanted to mention that I'd still love for the Lost podcast to happen. Thing is, it isn't redundant! I don't do vidcasts... ever, but I love listening to audio podcasts on my walks and in my car. So please take this reconsideration to AOL!

Really am enjoying the podcast these days. It's filling the void left by TV Guide's now defunct podcast. Keep it coming!!!

nice one

Enjoyed it as well. I still don't get the Marriage Ref, but enjoyed the interview. I get the idea of a talk show, but if you had a bunch of very well off CEOs sitting around expressing disbelief about middle class people's behavior, and laughing at it, you'd think they were all pr*cks.

And that's how these celebrities come off - not as the enjoyable characters they play, or the artists they are, but as a bunch of rich, entitled people who can't believe how the hoi polloi live...
