On this week’s episode of The A.V. Club Hosted By John Teti, the focus is “cord-cutting,” the snowballing trend of TV viewers canceling their cable to get all their television over the internet.
Like giant sea lizards on the Galapagos Islands, strange oddities have evolved from the streaming phenomenon. Did you know there’s a channel where your grandfather can reminisce on the grandeur of William McKinley’s 1897 presidential election? There is, and it’s oddly unsettling. Comedian Demetri Martin stops by the studio to brave the depths of “Roku hell” with host John Teti. Watch Demetri and John cringe at “Grandpa’s Favorite Movies” and more.
For those who haven’t cut the cord you can catch The A.V. Club Hosted By John Teti every Thursday night at 9 PM on Fusion. For everyone else you can watch the show on Roku, Apple TV, Amazon Fire and the Fusion mobile app.
