AMC’s Halt and Catch Fire: Still a Killer App

Outkick the Coverage - AMC’s Halt and Catch Fire: Still a Killer App

So many examples exist within the realm of television of overlooked shows or underappreciated properties. Often, an audience dissipates after a series starts slow, because we live in a “What have you done for me lately” culture, as opposed to a long game. Patience remains a virtue, but in TV, if you’re not really good…really… Read more »

Outkick the Coverage - All That and a Bag of Mail

I’m currently in the air flying to Las Vegas with my fingers crossed that the Southwest Wifi is going to hold up and allow me to post the mailbag.

Clay Travis Is An Idiot

Outkick the Coverage - Clay Travis Is An Idiot

By Fred Segal, aka Old Takes Exposed on Twitter In case you haven’t heard, Clay Travis and Outkick the Coverage are “dominating” in “all respects.” The full-fledged domination extends nationwide, on Periscope, radio, inpolitics, here, there, everywhere.  You name the place, Outkick is murdering the competition.  Also, did you know that Clay is a multi-millionaire, with a mansion, beach house, three sons… Read more »

Wet Hot American Summer: Ten Years Later Review

Outkick the Coverage - Wet Hot American Summer: Ten Years Later Review

If you’re reading this, it’s not outlandish to assume you’re already familiar with the Wet Hot American Summer phenomenon. Originally it was a 2001 cult classic about a Maine summer camp, and it’s always been known for the quality of its cast more than the quality of its script. This is a project that’s very… Read more »

Game of Thrones Season 7, Episode 2

Outkick the Coverage - Game of Thrones Season 7, Episode 2

We’re two episodes into “Game of Thrones” season seven and thus far we’ve had mostly slow moving stories bookended by extreme violence — the opening scene when Arya kills all the Freys and now Euron Greyjoy’s surprise attack on Yara’s fleet of ships.

Outkick the Coverage - Teletubbies Is Dominating ESPN Programming This Summer

ESPN’s business model is collapsing and their viewers are bailing on the network with alarming speed, but even I was shocked by just how bad it has gotten when I checked out ratings over the past couple of weeks.
