The weekly show will be hosted by The A.V. Club’s editor-at-large John Teti and feature the editorial brains behind the iconic pop culture site sharing their distinct perspective on movies, music, television, and more.
“Last year, my A.V. Club colleagues and I surveyed the media landscape and reached a troubling conclusion: There simply aren’t enough television shows. To remedy that shortfall, we’re taking matters into our own hands,” Teti said in a post.
