How Gilmore Guys Do Money

Kevin T. Porter and Demi Adejuyigbe started the Gilmore Guys podcast a little over a year ago with very low expectations, and have since seen their podcast grow beyond anything they could have predicted. Today, Gilmore Guys is part of the podcast network HeadGum and has regular sponsorship. The pair travel to cities across the country to record special, often sold-out live episodes of the show, with 2016 dates in Seattle and Portland happening soon.

Porter, a long-time fan of Gilmore Girls, teams up with Adejuyigbe, a newcomer to the series, to watch one Gilmore Girls episode per podcast. The two then record their re-cap, often with a special guest, offering insight into the actions of much-loved characters of the WB series, which ended its seven-season run in 2007. Netflix recently announced plans to do a limited series revival, a development which prompted the Gilmore Guys to do an emergency episode of the podcast the night the story broke.

The Gilmore Guys: the podcast that dissects the Gilmore Girls piece by piece

Kevin T Porter and Demi Adejuyigbe started their podcast on a whim, but with the show's revival on Netflix they've become a magnet for all things Gilmore. 

When The Gilmore Guys started it was supposed to be a podcast about two guys watching Gilmore Girls, a TV show that had been off the air for seven years. Kevin T Porter and Demi Adejuyigbe (the titular guys) took a page from Kumail Nanjiani’s X-Files Files, and started making their way through each episode of the series, painstakingly recounting the show’s action, fashions, pop culture references and drama (of the boyfriend, family, career, town, and college ilk). As they neared what could have been the end of the show, something unexpected happened – Netflix announced that they were resurrecting the cult classic for a four-part series slated for 2016. Suddenly, Gilmore Guys was no longer talking about a dead show. (“We’ve transitioned to the living,” said Porter.)...

How to Convince Your Boyfriend to Watch More "Gilmore Girls"

“I’m sorry. I can’t. Don’t hate me.” That was essentially what my husband said to me (though not via Post-It) after he tried and failed to watch an episode of Gilmore Girls. I had been a fan of the series back when I was a teenager, and after the show finally arrived on Netflix last fall, I started binge-watching it all over again when I came down with a particularly bad bout of the flu.

After my husband saw me consuming episode after episode, he decided to sit down and give it a try. It took only about 10 minutes before he got up from the couch and left...

Inside the weird business of cult TV reboots

“Gilmore Girls,” the WB dramedy following a witty mom-daughter duo in small-town Connecticut, was never close to a TV smash. At its peak, in 2002, the seven-season series ranked 121st in U.S. viewership, behind Fox’s “Temptation Island.”

But in the eight years since its cancellation, the show has traced a surprising ascent to cult stardom, inspiring viewer binges, a newly rabid fan base and key interest from streaming giant Netflix, who is reportedly pursuing an original reboot.

UT alumni host "Gilmore Girls"-centric podcast amid series revival

When news of a Gilmore Girls Netflix revival hit the Internet earlier this week, many fans offered praise and congratulations to UT alumni Kevin T. Porter and Demi Adejuyigbe.
