Welcome To the New TV Squad!

by Joel Keller, posted May 5th 2010 1:00AM
TV Squad logoAbout a month ago, we told you that a new era was coming for TV Squad. Well, it came a few days later than we anticipated, but, as you can see, that era has started, and I'm really excited to let you know about the changes to the site.

As we said in March, the two AOL TV blogs, TV Squad and Inside TV, have joined forces to create a bigger, better TV Squad. Now, we'll be covering much more of the world of TV than we have before, whether it's the finale of 'Lost' or yet another wedding show on the Style network.

With the merger of the two sites comes a redesign. Come with me after the jump to read about the changes, both cosmetic and under the hood.

A New TV Squad Is Coming This April

by Joel Keller, posted Mar 29th 2010 5:04PM
TV Squad redesign
A big change is coming to TV Squad in April, and I wanted to let our loyal fans in on the plans ahead of time.

At some point next month, your favorite TV blog will be combining forces with the Inside TV blog from AOL TV to create a bigger, better TV Squad. In the process, we're going to be getting a new look, which is depicted above and in screen shots after the jump.

What does that mean for you, loyal TV Squad reader? Well, a few things:

A cleaner look: The new site's look will be a little less cluttered than our current version, which was redesigned eons ago in internet terms (2007, to be exact). This will allow for a more appealing viewing experience. It allows us to display bigger pictures and videos, and we'll be able to have some more flexibility with our format.

More voices, but a familiar tone: In addition to the TV Squad writers you know and love/hate, we'll also be incorporating the excellent writers at Inside TV. But don't worry; we'll still be the same opinionated dorks we've always been.

In fact, our writers will be more opinionated than ever. In the near future, expect to see longer-form opinion essays, critical pieces, lists, columns and other features from both your favorite Squadders as well as the Inside TV team. You might have noticed some of that already; expect more in the coming months.

Have a Question for Tom Papa of 'The Marriage Ref?' Ask It Here!

by Joel Keller, posted Feb 26th 2010 6:02PM
Tom Papa of 'The Marriage Ref'We have a fun treat coming up for our next episode of The TV Squad Podcast: Tom Papa, host of NBC's new series 'The Marriage Ref,' will be joining us for some talk about his show and some of the interesting arguments he's had to mediate.

But Papa's an interesting guy: He's been on the stand-up circuit forever, and has friends in high places, including 'Marriage Ref' executive producer Jerry Seinfeld. So if you want to ask him questions about being buds with Jerry, some of the people who have gone on 'Ref' (including Alec Baldwin), or why he's credited as a "writer" on an episode of 'Jon & Kate Plus 8,' ask them here.

Leave your questions in the comments and we'll relay them to Papa during the podcast. We'll even give you credit for any question we use. So, ask away below. Any question we get in before we record the podcast on Tuesday at around 5 PM ET will be eligible.

(UPDATE 3/2/10: We decided to postpone this podcast due to Tom's tough schedule and some other fun stuff going on on my end. He'll join us soon.)

The TV Squad Podcast: Winter Olympics Week Two, Pilot Casting, March Premieres and More

by Joel Keller, posted Feb 26th 2010 10:33AM
TV Squad logoIf it's snowing like crazy where you are, the best thing for you to do is sit back and listen to us talk about TV. This week, Jason Hughes and Bob Sassone join me to talk about what's going on in the TV world:

  • More on the Winter Olympics and how bad NBC is messing them up,
  • The latest way the network morning shows are scaring parents (it has to do with the site Chatroulette),
  • The crazy first week of March on TV this year,
  • How most of the pilot casting news you're hearing about right now isn't going to matter in a couple of months,
  • How quickly the Andrew Koenig story spread from Twitter and Facebook to 'Larry King' and other national coverage (we taped this before Koenig's body was found yesterday),
  • Picks of the week, and more.

Run time is 1:17:05.

You can listen to the podcast below, or download from here or by subscribing to our RSS podcast feed. It is also available via iTunes. Feel free to leave us feedback in the comments or drop us a line at tvsquadpodcast [at] gmail [dot] com.

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



My apologies for the hinky sound coming from Bob and Jason. It was a recording error that will get fixed for next week's show.
