  1. Is H&A considered in the “danger zone” with those numbers? Or is it geting huge streaming numbers? Neighbors was ousted to eleven when it’s numbers fell to the 500k range, but it was a different landscape back then. Just curious.

  2. How many episodes has Hard Quiz got in the can David? Last night’s episode was billed as S5E25.
    I’m not complaining… I hope it goes on forever! But surely they are running out of fresh eps…
