On this week's entries on It Was A Thing on TV, Mike, Chico and Greg look at daytime talk show spoofs, hijinks at a retirement home and isolation booths featuring men named Dr. Lee Franz!
First, we talk about the ultimate spoof of daytime talk shows, Night Stand with Dick Dietrick. Topics in this show include successes (and a failure) which came for most of the people behind Night Stand, the time there was an accidental wardrobe malfunction, and what happened when Mike wrote an e-mail to the show.
Next, we look at one of the most recent entries on our list, The Cool Kids. It was co-created by Charlie Day, it had brilliant writing and casting, and it was loaded with TV legends. What could go wrong?
Finally, Take a risk! Take a chance! Take a dare! We double dare you to listen to this episode about the short-lived 1976-77 Goodson-Todman quizzer Double Dare (Not THAT Double Dare, the other one!)

The 2017 Conference Finals are right at the doorstep of Adam Murray and Andrew Riche, Place To Be Nation's NBA-Team (only on the PTBN Pop podcast feed), andbecause the Celtics and Wizards' Game 7 has yet to be played, Adam and Riche give you a double bonus of potential previews for the Eastern Conference Finals along with the Western Conference Finals between the Golden State Warriors and San Antonio Spurs. Can the Spurs' stingy defense continue to go big and physical against the splendid ball movement of Golden State? Will rest some cause rust for the Warriors or the Cavs? Which team would go the furthest against Cleveland between Boston and Washington? They also discuss whether or not the Morris twins pulled a switcheroo mid-series, Kawhi Leonard's injury and the inspired play of Jonathon Simmons filling in, James Harden's decrepit Game 6 elimination, the anti-climactic nature of the second round, and more! So suit up and take it out with the NBA-Team.
