Happy Monday and time for another Firewall & Iceberg Podcast.
It's a light week this week, so we came in at barely under an hour, even after discussing the state of "Justified" and "Fringe" pre-finale and answering a pile of Listener Mail.
Next week? Much busier, as we preview where the networks stand on the eve of upfronts. Then the week after that, with the upfronts themselves, we'll probably have multiple podcasts. Very busy.
"Justified" pre-finale -- 01:00 - 20:30
"Fringe" pre-finale -- 20:40 - 33:00
Listener mail: Can a comedy be "the best show on TV" -- 33:22 - 39:15
Listener mail: Low-rated networks getting audiences -- 39:15 - 43:10
Listener mail: The decline of the lead-in -- 43:20 - 47:20
Listener mail: Shows that were successful after cast departures -- 47:30 - 58:50

Firewall & Iceberg - Podcast 71

A long-time member of the TCA Board and a longer-time blogger of "American Idol," Dan Fienberg writes about TV, except for when he writes about movies or sometimes writes about the Red Sox. But never music. He would sound stupid talking about music.
