Around The Dial: Empire, Revenge, the Daytime Emmys, and Hot Topics

FRIDAY, MARCH 27, 2015 (6pm ET/3pm PT) After last week’s two-hour, surprise filled celebration, this week’s Kroll Call gets back to business. This week television talk with TV expert Richard Simms joins host Dan J Kroll for an hour of TV talk.

FOX’s Empire is the biggest breakout hits in more than a decade. But at least one published report says that the show needs to make some significant changes when it returns for a second season. Does Empire need to fiddle with its format or should they not try to fix what isn’t broken?

ABC’s Revenge started off strong and buzzworthy, but along the way it’s sometimes lost its stride. Now, as the current season winds down some are saying the show is the best it’s even been — but is it too little too late?

The Daytime Emmy nominations were announced this week and this year’s ceremony promises a spectacle that hasn’t been seen in some time. From a brand new and historic venue to a new broadcast outlet. We’ll break it down and look at the post-show premiere of POP’s new reality series, Queens of Drama.

Plus, it’s a twist on Hot Topics, as Dan and Richard both bring topics they want to discuss to the table — but they won’t be telling the other what they want to discuss ahead of time. Will this be a recipe for disaster or sizzling conversation? Well, there’s only one way to find out.
