EP. S2E40 — Fathers, Sons, & MILFs w/ John Owen Lowe

John Owen Lowe, the star and co-creator of the Netflix comedy series Unstable, joins Ashley to talk all things TV. John discusses Fred Armisen playfully torturing him to laugh during scenes, lessons he learned from Ryan Murphy, and even reveals he almost told his father Rob not to do Parks & Recreation just so he could continue enjoying the show. Plus, Ashley discovers John is a “learned Vanderpump Rules scholar” and reality TV junkie who’s fired up to talk about MILF Island, Too Hot to Handle, and much more.


What We Watched:

American Auto

Grand Crew


Vanderpump Rules

Parks & Recreation


MILF Manor

Love Is Blind

Too Hot to Handle





Seeking Brother Husband

90 Day Fiancé: The Other Way

American Manhunt: The Boston Marathon Bombing

[00:00:29] ASHLEY RAY: Welcome to TV, I Say with Ashley Ray, your go-to podcast for discovering what to watch on TV and getting behind the scenes insight from the people who make the shows you love. And today I am on the pod with someone who, I think, is just real good at TV. You’re real good at TV. I am joined by the co-creator, writer, and star of the new Netflix comedy series Unstable, which is loosely inspired by his real-life social media relationship with his father, who you’ve probably heard of. But I’m here with John Owen Lowe. Welcome to TV Club.   [00:01:03] JOHN OWEN LOWE: Thank you so much. I love that introduction. I like being told that I’m very good at TV. I like that.   [00:01:09] ASHLEY RAY: I mean, we’re going to get into all the credentials. Right now, Unstable. You worked on The Grinder, which, as you saw, probably, I was tweeting today, listeners, about how I missed that era of network TV–from the 30 Rock era to Brookly
