The Weekly Static s01e24: ABC Firsts, XFL Seconds, Plus Three More!

Just to be clear? What I do ain’t make-believe, though people say I sit and try. But when it comes to being De La? It’s just me, myself and I…and The Weekly Static!

Now while I work on a heartfelt apology to the great De La Soul, take a moment to decide because this is your last chance. After this, there’s no turning back.

The Weekly Static is our righteously desperate-yet-endearing look at the past week in the land of the networks, cable, streaming, smoke signals, cloud formations, and shadow puppets from what an interesting, unique and entertaining perspective. At least that’s how it reads on paper, so let’s see how this goes… So what exactly is the moral of this little story? It’s pretty simple:

● Offer a blunt, honest perspective on a handful of random TV news posts from the past week that also highlights your relentless team of news-thirsty Bleeding Cool writers and the quality work they do. My views are my views and not a reflection of the opinions of those who wrote the article. Translation? I own what I say 110%.

● Spotlight a news item we missed, but we’re pretty damn sure you’ll find it interesting.

● Feed my voracious ego with copious amounts of praise, adulation, social media shares, pizza, Superman Funkos, Eisner Awards, write-in votes for the 2020 U.S. Presidential Election (…told you…) and a constant stream of Red Vines and red Skittles. I mean a real stream, btw…Wonka style!
