Welcome to the Primetimer Podcast, your weekly review of what's worth knowing and what's worth watching in the ever expanding universe of T-V.
The CBS reality series Survivor has weathered the kind of controversy and bad decisions that would have sunk a lesser show. Instead, it's delivering one of its best seasons ever. In this week's debut episode of the Primetimer podcast, managing editor Joe Reid weighs in on why Survivor is not only surviving but thriving in its 22nd year on the air.
Also: Remember Queer as Folk? It's back, and reimagined for the world after the Pulse nightclub tragedy. And Claire Danes and Tom Hiddleston have brought the full char-broil sizzle to a new Apple TV+ costume drama.
Hosted by Primetimer senior editor Aaron Barnhart, with managing editor Joe Reid, news editor Claire Spellberg Lustig and reviews editor Mark Blankenship.
This podcast is brought to you by the new Primetimer Guide to Streaming TV. One reviewer calls it the only streaming guide you'll ever need, more info at primetimerguide.com.
