Bob Thompson, the founding director of the Bleier Center for Television and Popular Culture, and a trustee professor of television and popular culture at the Newhouse School of Public Communications at Syracuse University, joins Boston Public Radio every week to suggest his takes on the best and the worst that TV has to offer.

This week, Thompson couldn't get enough of the new show “David Makes Man,” chastised Jimmy Kimmel's use of the emergency alert system sound for comedy, and couldn't wait to watch the upcoming show "Hitsville: The Making of Motown."
