Demetri Martin takes on cord-cutting on the A.V. Club TV show

On this week’s episode of The A.V. Club Hosted By John Teti, the television version of the website you are reading right now, Demetri Martin stops by to brave the depths of “Roku hell” with host John Teti. The focus in this episode is “cord-cutting”—the snowballing trend of TV viewers canceling their cable to get all their TV over the internet.

Like giant sea lizards on the Galapagos Islands, strange oddities have evolved from the streaming phenomenon. Did you know there’s a channel where your grandfather can reminisce on the grandeur of William McKinley’s 1897 presidential election? There is and it’s oddly unsettling. Watch Demetri and John cringe at “Grandpa’s Favorite Movies” and more in the clip above and tune into The A.V. Club Hosted By John Teti every Thursday night at 9:00 on Fusion to see more. If you don’t get Fusion, you can find episodes a week after they air on your various set-top devices, including Apple TV and Roku.
