New listener; what a great find!

This podcast is the same level of excellent TV reporting you’ve come to expect from THR. Kim Masters’ brilliant insight is such an excellent companion to TV’s Top 5. I found this pod when she was a guest there and am so glad to have another TV podcast from THR!

I just subscribed a few weeks ago but am consistently blown away to how much I learn from each episode.

love this podcast

I look forward to listening to this podcast every week. Kim’s guests are always fascinating even when I don’t know who they are. This pod is an essential listen for anyone involved in the industry. It’s been super helpful to me as an actor.

Fairness

Abagail admits she has been wrong about every Disney move. I hope Kim plans to give equal time to Disney fans.
