Segment 1: What’s the Deal With The Delay Between Seasons?
This segment talks about “the wait”. The wait for new seasons of hit TV shows is driving viewers crazy. Hit’s like Game of Thrones and Stanger Things will not be premiering their new seasons in 2018.

Segment 2: Bringing back Old TV Shows
Is bringing old TV shows giving us what we want? Are they giving us “more” or the “same”? Even though sometimes it IS the same stuff as opposed to new, it is getting views and that’s all that matters. “Nobody cares.”
