Captain America is gonna fight Iron Man? Sweet. Batman is gonna fight Superman? Uh, we guess. “The Muppets” are currently fighting to stay on ABC? Uh oh. Sounds like the Cancellation Bear is back in the forest, and underperforming network shows are once again on the chopping block. Brandon, Kareem, and Ken go over who’s staying, who’s going, and why.
In addition, Brandon and Ken offer their reviews of “Creed”, what Paul Mooney would think of "Gods of Egypt", and everybody offers their thoughts on “The Wiz Live!” and (in the post-show) what its success means in the context of multiculturalism in Broadway musicals and musical film.
