Joel Keller is one of the co-founders of Antenna Free TV and co-hosts the weekly AFT Podcast. A long time ago, he left a career rebooting servers to write about TV and other fun stuff (though his ulterior motive was to write off his cable on his income taxes). At the time, he was writing for the late, great site TV Squad, where he eventually became editor-in-chief. Since those heady days, he's written about TV and other topics for The New York Times, The A.V. Club, TheAtlantic.com, Fast Company's Co.Create, Vulture, Zap2It and elsewhere.
This week, Jason and Joel spin around the dial and talk about many of the new shows, including the inexplicable success of The Mysteries of Laura. Plus, they discuss why NBC can't figure out how to make a popular comedy, and more.
This week, Jason and Joel talk about the NFL's problems this fall and if CBS and other broadcast partners can be objective, premieres of New Girl, Mindy Project, Red Band Society, Mysteries of Laura, and more.
