Ever since The CW revived Whose Line is it Anyway? in 2013, each episode has featured a “special guest”. Typically that designation has meant one of two things, either a well known comedian joins them in the fourth chair, like Keegan Michael Key or Jeff Davis, or it’s a random celebrity, most often from one of The CW’s other shows that makes a couple of appearances in games that would otherwise require an audience member.
The traditional broadcast TV season is over, which means one of two things: either the shows you love are on hiatus, or gone for good. To find out the fate of your favorite shows, check TVLine’s Renewal Scorecard. (It also means TV By The Number’s Cancel Bear is in hibernation once again.)

The very first episode of Buffy the Vampire Slayer I ever saw was “The Witch” on March 17th 1997. I was eleven years old. My parents had caught the two-hour premiere the week prior and thought my brother and I might like it. To say they were right would be an understatement.
If you’re anything like me, you spend more time on Netflix trying to figure out what episode to watch than actually watching TV. But if you’d like to take the pressure off the decision making process, check out these three sites. They can easily help you narrow down your options, or take it out of your hands completely by leaving it up to chance.
I wrote less blogs than I wanted to over the last few months. In the ones that I did write “Peak TV” came up a few times, not as an excuse but more so as a way to explain the larger context of the current TV landscape, one in which over 450 scripted shows aired in one TV season.
