EHG 160: Scoring The Gong Show

Jeff Drake joins us to discuss ABC's reboot!

ABC adds The Gong Show to its lineup of rebooted game and variety shows, and Jeff Drake joins us as we get out our scorecards to rate the results. Around The Dial clicks to Better Call Saul, Fargo, and 30 For 30, and includes an update on The Previouslies, our upcoming TV awards. Jeff makes the case for the induction of the Barney Miller episode "Hash" to The Canon, and after a creepier-than-usual Loser (and Winner), it's on to a savage Game Time. Peel a banana and listen in!
