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.

by Joel Keller, posted Mar 19th 2010 6:19PM
TV Squad logoAfter a few weeks off (my fault... don't ask), we're back in the swing of things, talking about everything going on this March on TV. This week, Jason Hughes, Danny Gallagher and Allison Waldman join me to talk about:

  • All the new shows that have started this month. 'Parenthood,' 'The Pacific,' 'Justified' and 'Minute to Win It' are discussed (we're especially flummoxed at why 'Parenthood' isn't at all funny),
  • How Leno returned to 'The Tonight Show' and no one cared,
  • What we think the Conan tour is going to look like,
  • The return of 'Breaking Bad,' 'United States of Tara,' and 'Nurse Jackie,' (Warning: spoilers abound during this discussion),
  • Picks of the week, and more.

Run time is 1:07:14.

By the way, the audio problems we had in the last podcast have fixed themselves. Enjoy the non-robotic-sounding voices!

by Joel Keller, posted Feb 19th 2010 2:41PM
TV Squad logoWe're back! After a month of technical issues and other starts and stops, we're geared up and ready to talk about TV again. This week, Jason Hughes, Kona Gallagher and Danny Gallagher join me to talk about what's going on in the TV world:

  • NBC's blanket coverage of the Winter Olympics, and how hard it is to get away from it,
  • How the seasons of 'Lost,' '24' and 'American Idol' are going so far,
  • How bad (and painfully obvious) product placement has gotten these days (I'm talking about you, 'The Biggest Loser!'),
  • A quick talk about the Super Bowl ads and halftime show (couldn't resist talking about Dave/Oprah/Jay),
  • Picks of the week, and more.

Run time is 1:26:51.

Super Bowl Live Blog at Asylum

by Jane Boursaw, posted Feb 6th 2010 1:30PM
Super Bowl logoIf you're looking for a fun way to enhance your Super Bowl XLIV viewing experience, our own Danny Gallagher will be live blogging the game over at Asylum.

Danny has a vested interest in the game, since he grew up in New Orleans and is super excited to see his hometown team, the New Orleans Saints, bring home the Vince Lombardi trophy. After all, it's been 43 years since they've made a Super Bowl appearance. It's time, people. The Indianapolis Colts will just have to try again some other year.

Danny will also be Livetweeting Super Bowl Sunday at Asylum starting at 6PM ET, along with Asylum and NPR contributor Renny MacKay. You can join in that conversation by using the #AsylumSB hashtag. In fact, check it out now, because the conversation has already started. What did we do before live blogging and tweeting? We led such lonely, distant lives. But not anymore!

Go Danny! Go Saints!

The TV Squad Podcast: The Golden Globes, when to watch a show live, and more

by Joel Keller, posted Dec 21st 2009 6:09PM
TV Squad logoIt was a very loosey-goosey podcast this week, as Jason Hughes, Kona Gallagher and Danny Gallagher join me to talk about some of the goings on in TV:

  • We talk about what we usually watch this time of year, whether it's holiday specials or just catching up on shows via DVD,
  • The Golden Globes nominations came out last week, and we talk about how they got things (mostly) right,
  • Something Danny has some experience with: When should you make like it's the 1990s and actually watch a show in real time to ensure you don't get spoiled (like the Dexter finale)?
  • Ask TV Squad, Comment of the Week, our picks of the week, and more!

Run time is 1:11:23

The TV Squad Podcast: Bill Scheft of The Late Show, Cake Boss, Mad Men and more

by Joel Keller, posted Oct 29th 2009 5:25PM
TV Squad logoToday I made an executive decision and gave the podcast an oh-so-creative name: "The TV Squad Podcast." This was after we recorded it on Tuesday, so I still refer to it by its old APB name. If you have any suggestions, let me know at tvsquad [at] gmail [dot] com.

In this episode, Late Show writer Bill Scheft joins me, Danny Gallagher and Kona Gallagher to talk about his new book Everything Hurts. Of course, there's lots of good behind-the-scenes info about what it was like to work at The Late Show, especially on how the events of the past month affected the staff and the show's writing, including the monologue.

He also tells some funny stories about being canned from Sports Illustrated (and spawns a new catchphrase), feeding lines to the guy who played Mike Singletary and more. It's 45 minutes of fun.

After the interview, Kona, Danny and I give our picks of the week. Run time is 1:03:02.

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.
