EP. S2E47 — Mega Mid-Year TV Roundup w/ Jason Mantzoukas

Buckle up, Jason Mantzoukas (Star Trek: Prodigy, How Did This Get Made?) is back! Jason and Ashley chat about the state of TV today and do a super-sized roundup of what he’s been watching since their last TV Club hang. During their rundown of 40+ shows, they both agree The Other Two is the best comedy on TV right now, make a case that Freevee is the top streaming service you’re probably not watching, and wonder why every celebrity wants to host a show about what they eat and where they go. Plus, you won’t want to miss Ashley try to guess what the show Bosch is actually about.
