at . Comments

It's always a good time when managing editor Carissa Pavlica checks in with KTRS morning radio host McGraw Milhaven.

Here is a rundown of the topics they discussed on Monday, June 5. Listen to the full program below for all the details!

WGN America is getting out of scripted television.

Tribune Media and Sinclair Broadcasting are merging, and there are no plans in the agreement for scripted television the likes of what Tribune had with WGN America.

But the Netflix CEO recently said he believes their hit ratio is too high.

"We have to take more risk; you have to try more crazy things. Because we should have a higher cancel rate overall. [By taking risks] you get some winners that are just unbelievable winners, like 13 Reasons Why. It surprised us. It’s a great show, but we didn’t realize just how it would catch on.”

Kevin Can Wait

Erinn Hayes out at Kevin Can Wait as Donna as Leah Remini joins as season regular undercover cop Vanessa Cellucci in a creative change of direction for the series.

Orange is the New Black Season 5 returns on Friday and we have a full review for you right here.
