This week on Pop Culture Happy Hour, NPR Monkey See's Linda Holmes, Stephen Thompson, Trey Graham and Glen Weldon discuss crowd-funded art.

They'll also discuss Vulture's Ultimate Sitcom bracket, in which 'The Simpsons' emerged victorious over 'Cheers.' The gang clashes over what's the right criteria in judging the best sitcom.
