What Defines a Showtime Show?


On this week’s The Vulture TV Podcast, we take a hard look the traits that define the network's series, from Dexter to Homeland, and why their latest show, Billions, should steer into its soapiness more. Plus, we’re joined by Malcolm-Jamal Warner, who plays A.C. Cowlings in tonight’s episode of The People v. O.J. Simpson: American Crime Story, on what it was like to be in a white Bronco with Cuba Gooding Jr. for two days straight.

Further reading: Matt's reviews of The People v. O.J. Simpson and Billions.
