Adweek Podcast: Let’s Talk About What You Should (and Shouldn’t) Watch on TV This Fall

Plus, Brangelina, James Corden and those lovely new Apple ads

Which new broadcast TV shows are worth watching this fall, and which should you steer well clear of? We've got all the answers on this week's episode of the Adweek podcast, Yeah, That's Probably an Ad.


There are a few very promising shows, including ABC's Designated Survivor starring Kiefer Sutherland; NBC's This Is Us; and Fox's Pitch. Adweek's TV reporter, Jason Lynch, tells us all about those programs, as well as some freshman series that probably won't do quite as well.

On this week's show, we also talk about the Emmy Awards telecast, the breakup of Brangelina, how Skittles handled a provocative mention in a tweet from Donald Trump Jr., and some of the week's best new ads—including Apple, Audi and Lurpak.

This week's podcast panel is:

  • Tim Nudd, creative editor of Adweek
  • Kristina Monllos, staff writer at Adweek
  • Aneya Fernando, web editor at Adweek
  • Jason Lynch, staff writer on the TV beat at Adweek
