In this feature, I look back at each day of the past week and determine what shows “won TV” for the night. That is, I consider every episode of television I watched that aired on a particular day and declare which was the best.

“Josh Groban Wears a Suit and Striped Socks”
Scott gets conked on the head and quantum leaps into the 60’s into the body of Sullivan Hunchy, CB!B!’s version of Ed Sullivan. While he works to give Jimick Wattersmith (Reggie’s dad) a shot at the big time, the show must go on! Josh Groban stops by and proves to have an affable presence perfectly suited for Bang-in’. Josh Fadem absolutely nails the role of plate-spinning hypnotist, and CB!B! producer Neil Campbell even gets some screen time as Charlie Mills (think about it).
