THE SPIN-OFF: Listen to the December Edition of Our Monthly KCRW TV-Centric Podcast
We have a name! We have a name! Welcome to "The Spin-Off," the TV podcast spinoff (natch) of KCRW's "The Business." Each month, Vulture's Joe Adalian, Variety's AJ Marechal and I sit down and give our spin (double natch) on the hot TV topics of the moment.
This month, we tackle the return of the big event frenzy at the networks, in light of the success of programs like NBC's "The Sound of Music Live." We also touch on the difference in violence on TV between broadcast and cable, as well as whether the content ratings are relevant. And then the three of us give our take on the top TV stories of the year. (Hint: "Netflix" is mentioned a few times.)
Listen below, or just go ahead and subscribe to either THE BUSINESS or THE SPIN-OFF podcasts on iTunes (or wherever you download podcasts).
