Over the past few months, I’ve been subtly and not-so-subtly telling you just how great truTV‘s The Chris Gethard Show really is — whether through posts about the show returning for 10 additional episodes or singing its praises during The Weekly Static’s recognition of truTV as our 2017 MVP, […]

ABC Debuting New Alec Baldwin Talk Show After Oscars

From a slightly more “snarky, glaring” perspective, the announcement represents television’s continuing efforts to ensure that talk shows remain a safe haven for middle-aged white guys.
