TV on the Internet
TV critic Todd VanDerWerff and TV watcher Libby Hill take on the week in television, classic TV and some of the biggest debates in TV past and present.

Todd and Libby are ready to tackle the hard questions this week, questions like, what's to be done with Charlie Sheen? How is The Good Wife like The Wire? Will Parenthood stay this good? Who does Libby 'ship on all of the shows she watches? And what's Todd's Parks and Rec problem? What's Libby's Community problem? What's YOUR problem? Bonus: The embarrassing revelation of the only TV couple Todd has ever 'shipped. All this, and more, on the new TV on the Internet!

Two podcasts in a week? What is this? The end of the world? Todd and Libby are back to talk about many things, and it will take them nearly two-and-a-quarter hours to do so. Topics include next weekend's Oscars, the final season of Friday Night Lights, the final season of Big Love (so far), Pierce Hawthorne's evilness, whether there can ever be too much Ron Swanson, shows Todd looks forward to, which novel should win the Pulitzer, and whether too many people are ignoring TV's past in favor of its present. Dig in, kids!

Hey, everyone. It's been a while. How are you doing? My goodness, Mrs. Tucker, that baby's really coming along. We recorded this podcast on Friday, February 4, but due to technical issues, we had to re-edit the whole thing together from scratch. Fortunately for all of us, however, we ended up with a great special guest that made us want to stitch the whole thing together. Maureen Ryan from AOL's TV Squad joined us to talk about a great many things, including The Chicago Code, Traffic Light, Justified, and the changing role of TV critics online. Fortunately, thanks to a recent Slate article, this has all become weirdly relevant, so you can listen to us and pretend we know what we're talking about!
