We Interrupt This Broadcast.

Can't stop, won't stop.

Not even five months into 2016, and the CDP has already reviewed Season 1 of Fuller House, curated the first Mix-Tape Trade in nearly five years, and published personal essay after personal essay after personal essay.

And all next month, we will embark on one of our biggest Pop Culture projects ever: TV MONTH 2016. An entire month devoted to essays, countdowns, obscure minutiae and personal nostalgia regarding all things Television.

I don't want to give too much away, but I will say that my goal was to put together a collection of TV-related stuff that celebrated why we (or at least I) specifically love Television, warts and all, that go beyond just the shows. From the birth of Cable, to Infomercials, to fuzzy UHF stations, to scrambled Premium channels, to National Anthem sign-offs and Doomsday alarms, I thought about what it truly means to be raised by Television, specifically during the 80's and 90's.

In addition to these essays, you can also expect a new countdown of the 100 Greatest Television Shows of the Last 35 Years, along with the long-awaited sequel to The Nuclear Nielsen Family. There will be new content every day, all month long.

It all kicks off this Friday, with a recap of nearly every TV-related essay, list and countdown in CDP history (and it's a shitload, I can assure you). Sound off in the comments section, enjoy your day and get ready for TV MONTH 2016!

FRIDAY: THE SERIES PRIMER.
