From Roseanne to Will & Grace to Full House, it seems like every show is getting a reboot these days. People seem to be craving the familiar and networks are more than happy to oblige.

On this week’s episode of Adweek’s podcast, “Yeah, That’s Probably an Ad,” we’re joined by senior TV editor Jason Lynch and digital media reporter Sara Jerde to talk about all things TV. Our panel discusses the new Karate Kid reboot Cobra Kai, what it could mean for YouTube Red if it’s a hit and whether this nostalgia surge will continue.

We also delve into the continued success of “It’s a Tide Ad,” which just won the grand prize at Britain’s D&AD awards, plus Nielsen reveals some surprising Netflix stats and these powerful ads from AT&T and BBDO got everyone talking.
