This week on Pop Culture Happy Hour, NPR Monkey See's Linda Holmes, Trey Graham, Stephen Thompson and Glen Weldon talk about secondary characters and spin-offs. Who could stand an upgrade to primary status and what makes a spin-off successful? Think 'Fraiser' versus 'Joey.' They also talk about the future of pop culture. All that, plus What's Making Us Happy this week.
