Water Cooler Podcast: Episode 38 – Music! Makes the TV Come Together

On today’s Water Cooler Podcast, the Cooler gang offers their favorites in television theme songs. The offerings range from classic themes to the themes of the modern sitcom era to orchestral greatness. Amusingly enough, no one manages to overlap significantly in their selections, proving there is indeed a wide array of television theme music out there.

But before we dive into TV theme music, we tackle a few news topics including word out of the Television Critics Week that there’s too much TV, NBC is up to its old tricks again, and the E! network is courting some legal action with an upcoming project.

Make sure you like us on Facebook and follow us on Twitter for more from Awards Daily TV.

    Hi! I really enjoyed the podcast, esp. the inclusion of my favorites like the themes from Happy Days and Friends, even though I know the latter was overplayed.

    If I made a list of my top theme songs, it’d definitely include the songs from “Welcome Back, Kotter,” “Happy Days,” “Hill Street Blues,” “Family Ties,” “NYPD Blue,” “Sopranos,” “The Wire,’ “Curb Your Enthusiasm,” “Dallas,” and “Dynasty.”

    Now I have to go and listen to them on YouTube. Thanks for the podcasts—I listened to two today: True Detective and this one.
