On this week's Pop Culture Happy Hour, Trey takes the week off (sniffle) but we get a visit from frequent Monkey See contributor and book club vice-president Marc Hirsh, who chats with us about the state of the network sitcom and joins in a round of picks for the most fascinating failures we can think of. (Two words: Shock Treatment.)

Of course, that's your cue to tell us about the projects that may not have been successful, but that grabbed your interest for one reason or another, and you should feel entirely free to share in the comments.

So follow me, Stephen, Glen, and Marc on Twitter (and Trey, too, because: come on!), and if you're currently buried in snow: good luck to you.
