Hello & Welcome to the Nerd Fu podcast – Season 2: Episode 5 – TV Returns!
This week, Steve & Sully interrupt your regularly scheduled podcast for an episode dedicated to the return of TV! Well, there are a few other highlights in there too, but we’re talking TV for the majority of the show. Cancelled shows, returning favorites, exciting new shows and the WTF shows that are still hanging around. We’ve also got our latest DVR Guide ready for download so you can get your DVR in order before everything gets rolling.
It’s on like the Television!
