About Us

The Office‘s Michael Scott says bacon is delicious, good for you, and the perfect way to start your day. We think television is, too, no matter what those scienticians try to tell you. TV Bacon is part of a complete nutritious breakfast that includes large servings of TV news, reviews, hero worship, snark, adulation, and fantasizing about running our own network.
