Do Networks Have Personalities?


Kurt Sutter's follow-up to Sons of Anarchy is the new swords-and-screaming revenge series The Bastard Executioner. Without spoiling anything, let's just say it's a lot of swords … and a lot of screaming. On this week's episode of the "Vulture TV Podcast," Matt and Margaret discuss FX's (and FXX's) place in the TV universe, and whether its shows have a more cohesive identity than other cable outlets' do. That leads us to, gulp, branding, and how viewers see networks, and maybe how networks see viewers. All that plus some advice from a jazz xylophonist.
