So, baby, pull us closer in the back seat of your Rover that we know you can't afford. Bite that tattoo on your shoulder, pull the sheets right off the corner of that mattress that you stole from your roommate back in Boulder. We ain't ever getting… the BCTV Daily Dispatch! Yup, The Chainsmokers– and with that, a righteous welcome back to our daily rewind of what's been going down across the television, cable, and streaming side of the pop culture landscape over the past 24 hours.

That said, even from just a public relations standpoint there's no way this doesn't come across as awkwardly-timed money grab that's going to create a further divide between "haves" and "have nots." We're continuing to slide into this mindset that one's level of "geekdom" is defined by their bank account- and that's a dangerous direction to be going in.
