Cancellation Blues And Cultural Etiquette

This week on Pop Culture Happy Hour, NPR Monkey See's Linda Holmes, Stephen Thompson, Trey Graham and Glen Weldon talk about the cancellation of television shows, from the ones they loved to the ones they forgot existed. Why is the cancellation of our favorite shows so disappointing? They'll also discuss how shows can have a second life after cancellation, through syndication, video streaming or by jumping to another network. Next, they'll tackle the contentious issue of pop culture ettiquette. Is talking allowed while watching TV? Can you take photos during live concerts? Is outside food ok in movie theaters? All that, plus What's Making Us Happy This Week.
