Ken Reid and Scott Ryan (again)


Today Ken welcomes author and fellow TV junkie Scott Ryan back to the show.


Ken and Scott discuss Scott’s new book, The Last Days of Letterman, available for pre-order now, an oral history of the final six weeks of David Letterman’s CBS show.


Ken and Scott also discuss the Twin Peaks finale, Roseanne, the nature of reboots, the value of Late Nite TV, daily habits, the storytelling difficulties of finales, and what they are both watching now.


About Ken Reid

I’m Ken Reid, a stand up comedian from Boston, MA and a life long television fan. I’ve been twice nominated as the Best Stand up in Boston and I have been featured on Comedy Central, NPR, Nerdist, and MSN. I own every issue of TV Guide. Each week a guest chooses an issue at random, picks their viewing choices from that week and the show is our discussion of the tough viewing choices of our past. We get into stories about growing up, people’s relationship with television, some cultural/media studies dissection and I spit out a lot of trivia.
