Craig Rowin (Adult Swim, UCB Theatre) invites guests over his apartment to watch any TV show they choose. They talk about it and a bunch of other crap.

When the guest doesn't pick a reality show of some kind, and it's just Craig and someone else digesting scripted TV, this show is a great listen.
This is currently my favorite podcast. I used to only listen to the episodes with tv shows I've watched before, but I quickly realized: it doesn't matter if you've ever seen the tv show before! It's still hilarious!
I've also never "watched along" with Craig and his guest, yet it's STILL hilarious. I will do that sometime soon, and I'm sure it will get MORE hilarious.
The detailed analysis of (usually) terrible shows by hilarious people is unfailingly funny. Give it a listen immediately!
This is a great idea for a podcast, and Craig and his guests are always very funny. It's smart that Craig lets the conversation meander way off topic, as there's not always enough to say about the TV episode to fill a whole show. As a TV geek, I occasionally find myself wishing Craig were more of a scholar of TV history -- he's not an expert, he's just a guy who really likes watching stuff, and there are times when he gets facts wrong or admits that there are things he just doesn't know and doesn't care to know. But I guess "a TV historian watches TV" would be a completely different podcast than "a funny guy watches TV." As it is, I look forward to each new episode.
