It’s Firewall & Iceberg podcast time again, boys and girls, as Dan and I talked about yesterday’s tragedy (Philip Seymour Hoffman), yesterday’s big disappointment (the Super Bowl blowout and the commercials within it), and some of last night’s other programming. We also dipped into the mailbag and paused to comment on FOX changing its midseason schedule again.

Also, if you want more TV talk from us this week, we’ll be doing a Google+ Hangout with Mo Ryan and Matthew Rappaport from Huffington Post on Thursday at 1 p.m. Eastern/10 a.m. Pacific.
