The networks have all announced their new shows and schedules at the Upfronts in New York. Adam and Anthony take stock of the latest offerings from ABC, CBS, FOX and even NBC. The fellas take a look at the most promising, puzzling and putrid new tv shows. Robin Williams, James Spader, Andy Samberg and Greg Kinnear highlight some of the stronger pilots picked up while Seth MacFarlane and even Blair Underwood can’t seem to save some of the more confusing shows. Check out all of the trailers at the Daily Beast.

Then the fellas take a look at the impact of the departing Bill Hader, Seth Meyers and possibly Fred Armisen and Jason Sudeikis. Who will step up for the show? And does this possibly signal the end for Lorne Michaels?

Also, some show notes:

The Big Bang Theory, sans laugh track. (Surprise! It’s not so good.)

And en memoriam…
